Road Warriors 2010 Gears Up For A Stint @ Livermore Cyclery

YES! Steve Howard, owner of Livermore Cyclery has welcomed us with open arms and given us a perfect venue to spread the word to cyclists about a new reason to do a century...Road Warriors 2010! Whether those 100 miles are cranked out in a day or over the months leading up to Veterans Day, all riders will be turning sweat equity and road time into tangible help for wounded veterans via Wounded Warrior Project and Freedom Alliance. (Check out our Launch Day Page or the FAQ Page for more details.)

As far as I can tell, putting in 100 miles looks like a piece of cake for the riders I see sporting Livermore Cyclery jerseys so we're aiming for more than a few new recruits. You guys are very very impressive.

Bar none, LC is my favorite bike store with the best equipment and the best staff around. It's the place I bought my beautiful red Lemond Zurich road bike. All metal. Hot! Not ultra light, just RED hot.

So...spread the word &
plan to meet us Saturday August 21st 
10:30-1:30 pm 

Steve set my traveling wheels on fire again by talking about all the great places he and his wife have cycled in Italy. Click here and you'll wanna do RW miles there tomorrow.

Looking for a road trip closer to home? But not too close? My vote is the head up north to Idaho for a ride on the 72 mile long Trail of the Couer d'Alenes. In fact, September is recommended as the best time of year to do the trail. The trail was built on an old railway bed so the grade is never more than 3% and there are small towns to stop at along the way where you can grab a meal and a bed if you want to do the entire out and back route. Last June, Dave and I did 50 miles and saw incredible wild life as well as beautiful scenery. Here are a few pics to pique your wanderlust...
