    Goodbye, NorCal!

    Well, tonight is my last night here in NorCal and I just wanted to thank you all and for those of you who I've met to say goodbye for now. Tomorrow I head back to Los Angeles for my Senior year of college. It has been a great summer, good riding, and I am grateful for all the fun moments I had on the bike. Even though I've grown in in Palo Alto, it was the first time I've really ridden my bike here. Some highlights:

    America's Most Beautiful Bike Ride
    Giro de Peninsula
    Tandem and Wheelsucker's ride (probably one of the most fun pacelines I've ever been on)
    Marin Century
    OLH (in under 30 minutes)
    getting to the top of Page Mill road... and then having to climb Tunitas up the other side
    Team Luna Chix, awsome group of women!
    Hill repeats with Silicon Valley TNT

    Anyways, it's been good and hopefully I'll catch up with some of you when I'm back.

    -Becky

    Nice to meet / ride with you Becky. We'll be here when you get back, should your post college life bring you this way.

    If you're starting a team, you might as well put your fundraiser jersey link here.. because if you learned anything from here its that Pete can't get enough jerseys. Sorry Pete, I'm just jealous, I wish I had more
    The nicer the bike.. the more demanding your life becomes off it..

    Heh, this reminds me I'll be taking off down south also, in a month. If you are near Irvine area, let me know we can do a ride.
