TRAVEL: Four friends riding a tandem bicycle from Canada to Mexico to raise money in support of greater access to early detection lung cancer technology in Canada slept in Point Reyes on Tuesday after a their rear hub broke. The people in West Marin were much nicer than in some other places, they noted; they were offered a free yurt to stay in shortly after breaking down on Highway 1.
