Although the hard part of the camp and structured riding is really from the 4th to the 10th, time has come for the rubber to hit the road. First day we did 4 hours and a few of us went an extra 2 hours to recon some of the climbs in the Tour of California. Boys will be boys so there was some I'll show you mine if you show me yours on the climbs and let me tell you these guys don't joke around. Nothing like 450 Watts up climbs while talking to the guy next to you. I'm puffing of course but some people are actually talking. Today the weather was crapy and some of us headed out for a 4 hour spin just to check out some more TOC climbs. 38 degrees and it rained all day. I actually enjoyed it and it felt good to get into the shower afterwards. Here's a shot out the windown this morning. And another shot of when its good weather of the house. Then I look at the weather in NYC and its 42 degrees. And it's Saturday which means that I really should have been at Gimbles making sure everybody behaves. And I heard that there were some people who didn't behave so there will be hell to pay in a few weeks.
