When the early season jitters start, you know its team camp time! This year our camp was in Los Osos California (close to San Luis Obispo), which I was thrilled with! Last year camp was in Portugal, which was incredible don't get me wrong, but I gotta admit that being able to drive to and from team camp (the way my Euro teammates are often able to drive to and from races) was lovely! One less trans Atlantic flight for the year is always a good thing! And who doesn't love California sunshine! :) Evie and I drove down the 101 and the adventure began...I'll tell the story through pictures/captions because thats much more fun than me jibber jabbering!
And then it was off to Morgan Hill for a few days at the Specialized Headquarters!
Now back to Los Osos!!
And then it was team Photo shoot day at Avila Beach!
WCA Ride Day!
We were lucky enough to partner with the Women's Cycling Association for a community ride around San Luis Obispo on Sunday the 26th. If you haven't heard about the Women's Cycling Association please take a second to check out their website (click here). WCA President Robin Farina (former US National Champion), along with the other incredible women on the WCA board of directors, have already accomplished so much in the growth and development of women's cycling in the very short time since the WCA was established. If you are passionate about women's cycling and want to help, please become a member of the WCA (anyone, male or female, can join!) Click here to help build the future of women's cycling!
The last week of camp was all business with lots of miles in the saddle! Ina took us on some incredible rides around SLO, I loved it!
Birthday Party time!!
And then after two weeks of good times with my incredible teammates, staff, and sponsors the adventure came to an end! Stay tuned for the next adventure, racing starts soon and its gonna be a kick ass season!
