Winter warm weather riding opportunity Thursday, November 18, 2004
Many of you know me from the Northeast Bicycle Club and as a local amateur road and cyclocross racing cyclist here in New England. You also may know that my freelance work allows me to venture to warm places in the winter to enjoy some base winter riding. I’ve become quite good at scoping out places to ride and local resources.
This winter I am hosting 4 consecutive weeks of cycling in San Diego from February 12- March 12, 2005. Please pass this information along to your club or teammates- come out to train together as a team! I’ve begun an annual venture that strives to offer cyclists an affordable, resource-supported respite from indoor trainer riding and cold winter temperatures for a week of warm weather riding.
I’ve secured a property with 5 bedrooms and full amenities including hot tub, kitchen, and lots of ride options along the southern California coast and inland, including a couple of great climbs.
I’m offering one-week retreats for cyclists who are relatively self-directed and are looking for a get away to boost their off-season training.
The price includes nice housing for 7 nights, airport pickup and drop off (you don’t need to rent a car if you don’t want to), a welcome dinner, orientation to the area, breakfast daily, a farewell dinner, several ride choices every day, either with me as a guide or on your own on mapped out routes that I have arrowed. Also included is a massage for each guest by a certified massage therapist, as well as access to a full kitchen for you to prepare meals during the week, or you can enjoy the many local restaurants.
I’m currently taking registrations until December 31, 2004 and have limited space available. Contact me directly if interested. To reserve a spot send payment directly or register online at BikeReg.com.
More information can be found at the website: www.snowbirdcycling.com Keep checking back, as I add more information regularly.
Looking forward to having you join me this winter!
I am willing to work with teams to come up with a group rate for groups of 5-8.
