As some of ya know, I started a bike blog documenting all my bike related adventures, from early morning bike rides to racing to other bikey type stuff. Most mornings, especially during the spring, I'm on my bike training at the crack of dawn. It's a little nutty, but once you cross the Golden Gate Bridge and see a view like the one above, it makes it all worth it for me. Anyway check it out if it interest ya: Ride & Shine.
Ohh, excited for the release of this book!http://vimeo.com/46696217
