We are one day shy of being 7 weeks away from our starting line in Oceanside, CA.
Its crazy how time flies.
About 3 weeks ago, your RAAM cyclists from TeamFARA participated in a metric century, Party To Pardee, riding approximately 63 miles. All four of us were able to ride in this event, along with John's wife Stephanie, her Dad, stepmom, and another friend of the team, Brandon. The ride was challenging and fun for all of us (most parts anyway), and we all finished strong! The weather was chilly and the sun didn't show its face at all. Thankfully we didn't have rain! The course was very hilly, with approximately 4,000 vertical feet of climbing.
Now...we are in Chico, CA., riding the Chico Wildflower tomorrow. This is a very popular northern California course, with over 4,000 cyclists participating. The Wildflower course covers 100 miles of varied terrain. We've had beautiful weather the past few days in the area and tomorrow should be a great day for riding! Maybe this time I can get a little sun on these white legs!
We will post more updates very soon...with pictures from the Party to Pardee ride and tomorrow's Wildflower ride! Also...I will post pictures and share a little story about mine & Michael's opportunity to attend the Sponsor's Reception for the AMGEN Tour of California (Stage 2) earlier today and how we were able to meet George Hincapie!
Thank you for your continued support and loud cheers along this journey! RAAM will be here before you know it.
Tomorrow we will be closer to finding a cure.

I'm a bit ... I'm thinking that I should know who 'George Hincapi' is ... but my minds a blank ;)
