California Dreaming

I’m off to (hopefully) sunny Santa Barbara for a long weekend of cycling and Tour of California spectating. I found during my trip last year that it is a great way to beat the winter cycling blues here in Boston and kick start the new season. Best of all, this time I’ve managed to convince three friends to join me. I can be reached by email.

Those of you with a casual interest in cycling can catch daily coverage during the evenings on Versus. Saturday’s stage should be the most scenic – look for us at the top of Balcolm Canyon. I’ll be the pale skinned guy chasing the riders up the road.

    Here’s another good excuse to visit SoCal …
