My neighbor asked me yesterday if I had found work. The reality is, I have more work than I can handle some days! My client list has grown to over 23 athletes and my contract work is picking up fast! The awesome thing about that is that I can do all that work in my jammies in the house. Thus the neighbors think I don't work. Sigh...
Our adventures have been colored and many, so on easy ride day may just allow me rehash some of them! I have a fresh french press of coffee percolating as I listen to/watch the Exergy Tour and all the awesome women competing there!
We decided I needed to go to Colorado for some bike racing, and realizing the cool fact that I could not only see my brother and his wife, but my parents, 3 cousins and their families and one awesome aunt! So on the road I went, 16 hour drive with a few detours, the complete Hunger Games trilogy on my iPod, my lap top and my bikes!
Before I left, I spun the legs out up and around Oak Glen. I have yet to actually eat apple pie or an apple dumpling up at the top...one day!
|A quick spin up to Oak Glen before heading out of town. This route is awesome on a weekday morning!|
|Yucaipa roundabout! In honor of the Oak Glen Apple Orchards.|
|Moto knew it was trip time. And that she wasn't coming along!|
|Grand Junction, CO|
|This road went straight UP from the Ranger Station!|
|Up, up and away!|
|Highest spot on the route.|
|Amazing view back to where I rode up from. The colors were amazingly vibrant, no photo could do it justice. At least from the iPhone.|
The plan was to just pass by Frisco, but my parents - who live near Sacramento - just happened to be staying there with their friends! So I spent the night. Why not!? There is always wifi to be found which allows me to complete training plans, athlete communication, and facebook posting.
|Bike path day!|
|Don't worry, we were stopped - snow storm gridlock!|
I love food, and my parents friends bought me a sandwich. But I couldn't eat it for like 4 hours!! It tortured me in the passengers seat, but proved to be very delicious once I got to sink my teeth into it!
