Recap of Wheels4Water Day 4

As the team rolled into camp to round out Day 4 of the ride, they had ridden 80 miles along the PCH dodging cars and enjoying the incredible coastline of northern California. The road was narrow and anything but straight and flat, so the team was forced onto the thin shoulder almost the entire way,…
