I’m doing an uncharacteristically poor job of updating my site. And for that I sincerely apologize. Thankfully a photo is worth a thousands words — or at least a brief blurb as you’ll see here. Swing on back regularly and hopefully I’ll have updated a little bit more of SoCal in January. This place is magic.
Nothing says Los Angeles Country Club like snazzy New Balances and super neon socks. I won the day… but lost on the course.
Supercross. Whoa. Hello fireworks!
Camp begins! Deer Creek is a steep little number.
Post ride recovery burrito. Riding in America is so peaceful – since you can escape salad and eat a burrito.
Whole point of this CA trip! Cannondale Team Presentation!
Massive group ride. Media, friends, fan, local amateur teams, and all awesome folks.
AEG’s presentation of the Amgen Tour of California race route 2014. Peter’s on the left. I’m that handsome bloke in the middle covering for him.
Showing the team a good time: Staples Center for LA vs. LA. (…LA won)
Bill Walton. Perhaps the biggest Ted King fan around (and vice versa). Bill’s the freakin’ man.
Camp’s over, so now there’s time to hang with another @RideCannondale and Krempels King of the Road Challenge buddy, Jeremiah Bishop.
Took the fam to Pedalers’ Fork in Calabasas. Exquisite place.
Also took the folks to a final dinner in CA before they set back to the eastern tundra – Tar&Roses in Santa Monica. L-R: Bone marrow, oxtail dumplings, pigs’ ears, and beef carpaccio.
BACKside of Gibraltar. All dirt. Gnarly dirt. Going up!
Summit: Gibraltar meets Camino Cielo
Morning ride from Solvang. Sweet new parka from Sugoi! (…29 degrees F)
