Life On Two Wheels

Along the river and toward the mountains a morning shadow shimmers across the road. The rays of the first light jet through the trees and across a figure gliding upon the road. His breath trails in short spurts, petrified as it hits the icy air. All is quiet except the slight sound of the athlete as he summons himself for yet another days work. Soon the rest of the world will bustle with life as well and the brief simplicity of cyclist and nature will disappear into the everyday struggle of life in full motion; the errands and intervals, the appointments and intersections, and the deadlines and finish lines OutPaceTheRace

I took the plane from Seatac this afternoon in rout to San Francisco. The team is having a little “camp” to go over the stages of the 2007 Tour of California. Unfortunately, the weather has turned imperfect just in time for us to arrive. Apparently it’s been rather pleasant over the last several weeks, and just today the “rainy season” began. Of course, I have a tendency to cause untimely weather patterns so it’s really no surprise to me…
Participants of the camp include Danny, Pat and I with Allen and Lara as staff. Evidently Lucas, Taylor and Brad will be driving up from Santa Cruz tomorrow morning too.
I’m looking forward to a weather change once we head south a bit.
