Seventy Three Degrees and Sunny

There are more leaves on the ground than on the trees here in Pennsylvania.  It was snowing briefly last week and we've had more than one hard frost that left the remaining vines in our garden done for the year.  In essence, it's November.  I've told you that I'm determined to keep riding outside as long as possible this year and I've found what has to be the best possible way to do it - Trek Travel.

I'm hopping a flight this afternoon for Santa Barbara, California where the forecast calls for 08SB-L seventy-three degrees and sunny over the next four days. Tomorrow morning I will meet up with approximately eighteen other women, for a Trek Travel Women Who Ride Santa Barbara Wine County Weekend cycling trip.

On the itinerary are four days of riding, amazing scenery, fabulous food, and numerous winery stops.  I'm looking forward to getting away and getting to know other women riders while Trek Travel takes care of all the details.  I return on Monday and I'm sure I will have some wonderful pictures and stories to share.  I can't wait to tell you all about it. . .



Ummm . . . how come I didn't know about this?

Who's getting up to get the kids on the bus?!?!?!?!?!?

Have a fabulous time. I wish I could have joined you and I can't wait to hear all about it.

Same to you. . .and thanks for charging up that hill to show all those super-serious weekend warrior cyclists that there is nothing wrong with responding to a friednly 'good morning' from a fellow cyclist on the road.

And, always keep a lookout for mountain lions!

Great meeting you in CA. Sorry I didn't get to say goodbye. I had that all important spa appointment. :o)

I'll keep checking back here for updates.
Be well. Colleen

Great meeting you as well. I had a great time riding with you and hope to stay in touch. I'm glad that the reason I missed you on Sunday was because of the spa :)

Hey Jen!
It was great meeting you on the trip especially because your motivation helped push me up those hills! I'm so glad we did it though! What awesome views! It was worth the sweat! You are very inspirational and you've got me thinking "why shouldn't I try to do a triathalon"? I have nothing holding me back but myself! I'm going to do some research and try to figure out a plan. I need a goal to keep me working this winter or I will become a typical MN couch potato!
Take care and let's keep in touch!
