Racing Bikes in Wine Country

via Boston.com The Big Picture

The morning had all the makings of a disaster. It was cold and hazy. I got two flats before even leaving the starting area, I got stung by a bee under my jersey, and I accidentally did the first loop an extra time, adding an extra 11 miles to a 100 bike race. By 10AM however, the sun broke out over Sonoma, lighting the vineyards brilliantly as we built up a strong pace. We stopped at farms throughout the route for snacks. Figs are the new Clif bar.

  • This might be my favorite post of Africanminute. Getting stung by a bee under clothing might just be on a list of top-10 most unpleasant occurrences.
