San Francisco Treats

My time in the Bay Area is winding down. Tomorrow Chiva and I will be hitting the road once again to continue the Tour de Dog.

San Francisco is a spectacular, cosmopolitan city that is home to many dogs and bicycle enthusiasts. It is also home to my brother Rob and his friends who have been great city hosts.

Highlights of the stay included Chiva and me catching up on our sleep, having a roof, shower, and a carpeted floor, site seeing, and socializing.

Thank you Ruth, Chris, Brian, Clarissa, Tyler, Ryan, John, Aaron, Kate, and Brother Rob for such warm hospitality! I look forward to seeing you again soon.

Here are pictures from the brief stay:

The mighty Golden Gate Bridge

Rob enjoyed cruising with Chiva and the DoggyRide Novel

San Francisco nightlife is a good time

Jeez you and your bro look identical.

I've got a 'mom'-in law in Anaheim and she and her two dogs would be mega chuffed to have you guys along if you were heading that far south. Picture an entire caravan to yourself and an endless of quality mexican food... :)

After riding the past comment I saw the rest of the blog. I am from MedellĂ­n. How small is the world, huh?

By the way, your bike-Chiva is a pretty good version of ours, hehe.

Hi David,
My friend Ruth sent me info on your adventure! What a great idea. Since you are a DE native you may know where the little town of Easton, MD is....when you hit the east coast and need a place for a good meal and bed, you are welcome. My family would love to show our support and my dogs will love the company!
