The California Highway Patrol was a big part of our day. The main man was Lt. Avery Brown who’s helping coordinate everything and they have a lot of assets involved in tomorrow’s kickoff. He says that about 75 CHP personnel will be involved and that doesn’t count San Francisco police.
Lt. Brown took the drivers along the route we’ll travel tomorrow so we can see it and learn how we need to handle things like major intersection turns and our lineup at the Lincoln Park kickoff ceremony. It also gave us an opportunity for a little sight seeing and picture taking.
I interviewed Avery and I think you’ll hear why he’s the organizer: Lt. Avery Brown Interview (3 min MP3)
