Day 100 – Solana Beach, CA to MCRD San Diego, CA

Here it is finally, the last ride of the 100 day trip from coast to coast!! Eight ElliptiGO riders and one bicyclist joined me at the ElliptiGO Headquarters in Solana Beach and we took off shortly after 8 am. We followed a route selected by Bryan Pate and took us through Del Mar, up the hill to Torrey Pines then through the UCSD Campus. From there we took various trails and streets to get to Mission Bay then through Old Town and finally into MCRD.

Inside MCRD we rode to the Base Museum where many guests welcomed us. KUSI and FOX TV stations were there to do some interviews. During the disclosure of the total money donated to the Injured Marine Semper Fi Fund, I, Bryan Pate from ElliptiGO, and Laura Castellvi from the Semper Fi Fund got a chance to say a few words and announce the total of $10,622 as of this morning.

Here are a few pictures taken by Bill Pinnell and his wife.

        Thanks Pe;s#&r8230tJuet messing with you Paul. I get called Jason all the time LOL. That’s great it sounds like you are taking action and just needed to tighten the process a little. I hope this is the lesson that gets you over the hump. I’ll keep an eye out for your updates
