Chris and I carpooled from LA, and waited to pick up Becca and Christa in Santa Barbara from Colorado. #snackonsnacksonsnacks #butfirstcoffee

 This was a good time for us to catch some rays, get ahead on studying, and make some pre-camp bike adjustments. Also, perfect time for a photoshoot with our new Cinelli Stratos Faster crit machines!

Once we picked up Becca and Christa, who were escaping the Colorado snow, we headed north towards San Luis Obispo to LA Sweat HQ!

 

Just a little behind schedule, (post-greetings and hugs) we packed up the team car and van, and headed towards Cambria aka home base for the weekend #getinthevan
