Training Ride #1 2017 Napa Valley Tour de Cure

Today was officially Training Ride #1 for my 2017 Napa Valley Tour de Cure. My friend Phil also volunteers for the American Diabetes Association Napa Valley Tour de Cure and will be riding the 50-mile route this year. My friend, and Phil’s lovely fiancee, Desiree, will be riding the 25-mile route. Check out this ride – there are routes for all levels of cyclists. It’s a really well supported ride and is a fundraiser for a great cause.

Phil and I did a quick Vacaville loop and then I explored a little more. I decided to see how I would do again on Gates Canyon Road. This is a wonderful training hill – it gets a bit steep in some places, but then it levels out and gives plenty of stretches for recovery time.

It feels good to be back in the saddle again!

Here’s hoping you had a great day and got some good cycling in.
