12 January 2013 - VftR:1/12/13 Yellow Schoolhouse Brick
Had an amazing training session today. Started with an amazingly gorgeous ride that included views of Central Coast wineries and then along the coast for stunning views of the ocean. While cold (by my standards), I killed the 35 miles in 2 hours, but that’s when the real fun begins. Quick removal of leg warmers […]
6 January 2013 - VftR: 1/5/13 The Big Yellow Barn
I only had an hour for my ride today, as I had a friend coming into town, so I focused on intervals and hit the road.
15 December 2012 - VftR: 12/15/12 Mountain of Gold
Montaña de Oro on a cold cloudy day. 27 miles of cadence focused cycling. So thankful for an early Christmas present of arm and leg warmers as it was COLD. Another humbling ride though as I attempted to catch up to a rider in front of me. When I finally did, I was shocked to […]
8 December 2012 - VftR: 12/8/12 Back Home
Happy to be back home from Texas and hitting the road. 28mile interval ride, 1 min sprints with 3 min 70 rpm recovery. Wish I could have gone longer, but things to do today. Got home last night at 3:30a, so getting up early was out of the question.
24 November 2012 - VftR: 11/24/12 Guadalupe
VftR: a pit stop at the Guadalupe cemetery provided a great opportunity for pictures. I know, this is the second cemetery this week. No particular reason, but there are great photos to be found. Total of 34 miles, with this break at about 20.

17 November 2012 - VftR: 11/17/12
No pictures of the road today. I went to the gym to get my training in. It’s not my favorite, but it has its place. Got on the spin bike for 45 minutes. So different than being on the road. No coasting No hills No scenery No wind In other words, not cycling. I did […]
