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
The team car is hooked up with a Yakima trailer and roof rack to fit the whole squad’s new bikes! Can you count how many bikes the team car is hauling? #allthebikes
The weather could not have been more perfect.
Finally arriving to our team home, along the coast in Cambria, CA – it was time to get our new gear… and time for the most anticipated KIT REVEAL!
OMG thank you wonderful sponsors! #blessed!
Thank you to all of our 2016 sponsors XOXO #BikeXMAS #BLESSED
That evening we had our first spin all together, seeing the amazing sunset… in our new kits! #babesinbibs
All smiles and excitement with our new gear! #SQUAD
Friday Morning began like this… #itsfridayfriday
Followed by team rollout AIS* by 9AM to ride with our friends from Lezyne for a bit, before breaking off to ride north on Pacific Coast Highway.

Snack stop by 11AM because #WeSweatForSnacks
And impromptu #Photoshoot starring Caitlin:
The ride view along PCH were spectacular! It was hot and sweaty to get here, but really it was totally #worthit
Mid-ride coffee is a Bonus! Doc Birch sure does like her caffeine.
After our gorgeous ride along PCH, we had some down time (before our next activity) which we spent in our team Camp HQ located right on the beach.
To end our day, we had the honor of attending our host family’s spin class. What an epic spin class it was!
5 hour epic ride (coordinated thanks to Blake Anton) began on the beautiful coast of Cambia!
It included of epic dirt climbs, and picturesque fields, and long winding descents (seemed straight out of a storybook!) Of course, we couldn’t pass up a photo op! ....

Kudos to our ride photographer/ride planner Blake Anton (POP QUESTION: How many cameras is he holding?) #allthecameras
We started our (Easter) morning with recovery Yoga to stretch out after Saturday’s long ride. (photo c/o Hanna) #recovery
Followed by a Team Photoshoot aka Kelli’s secret way to get us doing hill repeats! Sneaky, sneaky.
PS – Check out our nail game! #onfleek
#BTS of our photoshoot
Mailman wasn’t expecting to #getinthevan during our photoshoot.
#BTS Wondering where are headed to for this photoshoot.
Those serious hill repeats called for much needed down time before we hosted our Women’s only ride.
Hill repeats deserves donuts! #WeSweatForSnacks
