Bike odyssey for Sentinels

A dozen bicyclists - at least one of whom is a wounded military veteran - left San Francisco early Tuesday morning on a 544-mile journey to Camp Pendleton in San Diego County. The bikers are raising money for the Sentinels of Freedom, a San Ramon-based foundation that help wounded military veterans transition back into society.

A team of volunteers and civic leaders act as the "guardian angels" support group for these Sentinels.
