ALC Day 0: Orientation and bike drop off

The day before the ride is prep at the Cow Palace in San Francisco. The full "Get Out of the House" team gathered at 2:00 for the proceedings.  We start with a group orientation and safety talk (see Coney" on the right), followed by a mob of people at the check-in, as you can see below.

The ride had numerous sponsors, from United the Chevron.  I singled out Dignity Health as they are a customer of the company I work for. 

Here's the bike garage at the end of the day Saturday.  We had to put our rider numbers on the bike to be ready to ride out early Sunday morning.  This was the calm before the storm.


Finally we have team pictures.  The first is my son, Peter and me.
The second is the full team of me, Peter, Joe and Evan.

We all left to go home and have dinner with our families and get a good night's sleep, or at least as good as you can have when you wake up at 4:30 AM so you can be driven from Berkeley to the Cow Palace.
