After many long hours getting work projects finished and wraped up this week we're finally off to California. Up at 4am on a Sat. The last few days have been jammed packed with only 3-5 hours of sleep per night-- almost like training for sleepless RAAM rotations! But hopefully we'll get some rest and relaxation while we're there even though we're planning to ride 7 days straight making our way down from San Francisco to LA. I mean even if you're riding some serious climbs and trying to keep yourself from getting swallowed by the pro peleton, riding along the pacific coast has a certain calming feeling.
Capitol Hill Bikes has really stepped up for us and gave me a loaner bike while my broken frame is being replaced. This has been critical stay on a consistent traning regimen as well as being set up for this week long tour. I was eager - well still am - to get my frame and setup just right but this option has been a real life saver. Lee even installed my power meter yesterday which will be great to gauge my workouts with. So all in all it should be a good week- with only some minor work distractions. I'll try to keep you posted from the road.
