Getting Ready for Camp

It officially starts the day after tomorrow and Jeb Stewart and I are here in Marin County getting ready for what is shaping up to be the best-ever Marin Training Camp.  On Friday, we stayed with friends in the East Bay and took in some sublime California riding in temperatures nearing 80F degrees:

Yesterday, we took in the Alpine Dam loop and went over some peculiarities of navigation in Marin.  This year should be a bit easier as Quarq have sent us a load of Garmins which we will pre-load with each day's route.  Today, we'll do another spin to dial things in as well as assemble the bikes which have arrived.

The campers arrive tomorrow afternoon and, hopefully, we will be able to get out for a late-afternoon 'bonus spin'— to shake out the legs and get to know each other a bit.  The camp is comprised of many returnees from years past, several of my athletes, a couple of old friends and even a relative!  It's nicely mixed between men and women, pro and amateur, with specialties ranging from endurance mountain biking to cyclocross to track.

I will be doing my best to post daily updates and photos right here!
