April 10, 2010: Beautiful 60 mile ride with 2800 feet of climbing today to Lake Nacimiento and Lake San Antonio, followed by Hare Canyon Road and then 10 miles into a very strong headwind for 10 miles along Indian Valley Road before reaching the city limits of Paso Robles. The day never really warmed up, remaining in the high 40s/low 50s, and and with the wind and some light rain in spots it wasn't "California Dreaming" for me. Especially since I packed T-shirts...what was I thinking?
Each morning begins with a rider assembly at 8:50 a.m. and we depart at 9:00 a.m. Today we also had the the rider introductions, which came from all parts of the USA, one Canadian, and Eros Poli from Verona.
Being a training camp the ride rolled along at a steady pace. There isn't time to stop for the best possible photos, unless you don't mind riding by yourself. The hills are still lusciously green and lush, it won't be long before they turn golden.
Back in time for quick shower and and a change of clothes and then off to a wine tasting.
Photos: coming in a few days
