Micro Tour Results

For the sleepless few dying to find out about the micro tour:
Big Sur ride was ruled out due to lack of television I know it's hard to believe, but for baby boomers the prospect of no tv, no books to read, cold/dark outside just didn't cut it.

We drove up to Sebastopol early on Thursday, checked into civilized lodgings and took a very nice 57 mile through the redwoods, down the Russian River, along the coast and finished on the rollers getting back to Sebastopol. Were were a stud/studette team until we hit the headwinds and mini-rollers on the coast and were pretty finished off by the final set of climbs on a nasty road called Bloomfield. Weather along the coast notwithstanding the headwind was beautiful and we would do this ride again in a heartbeat. Temps in the mid-50's.

My apologies to those living in the cold and snow

Lucky you. We're getting a foot of snow tomorrow and we're not as bad off as many. Beautiful pix, though.

Looks beautiful but I have a question. When you do a micro tour, do you do it on a micro tandem?
