At the summit of Fish Ranch Road Pony Express Rider Thomas Bedford followed today's Claremont, Telegraph and Broadway Streets to the pier located at this site.
Captain Falkenburgh arrived here with the "Oakland" at 9:15 a.m. The telegraph had informed him about Bedford. He waited awhile but then gave the order to "haul in" and "let go." Bedford was then sighted and the plank put out against for the flying horse and Pony Express mail. At 9:32 a.m. Bedford rode on board and arrived in San Francisco at 10:30 a.m.
Bedford's trip from Martinez covered 25.9 miles in 1 hour and 40 minutes. This was an average of 15.5 MPH. This first overland trip between Sacramento and San Francisco on April 23, 1860 covered 98.7 miles, in 9 hours and 45 minutes, by two riders.
