I was so busy before and after our trip, I've hardly had time to reflect. I regained a real sense of capability. I put a rack on the front of my Naga and carried a cooler full of gluten free foods. Sarah, as per usual, carried the rest of our stuff in my Dank doublestrap. We threw our bikes into boxes at the train station and let the Coast Starlight do the rest. Sarah Murder of Pushbike SF put us up. Two days into the trip we took a rest day to hangout with her and her hubby Ian. We watched movies and caught up. Our adventures included seeing Die Antwoord at the Treasure Island Music Festival and a tour of SF's Gluten Free options. We had amazing food throughout. My one moment of weakness (unlike in Seattle) was at this bicycle Cafe, Mojo. They happened to be hosting their Supper Club, which consisted of two local chef's and two hotplates. WHOA! I had no idea it could be this good! And who knew a date wrapped in bacon would excite the tastebuds into a symphony of flavor never to be matched again! Yes, it was that good! If you visit the city by the bay, do not miss this opportunity. Of course that menu will never be repeated but I'm sure the city with the best restaurants and chef's will make good on this promise in the future!
