WEST 2007

It seemed as if every time I rode out West, I never got to ride the entire Highway 1 from the Avenue of the Giants down to San Luis Obispo. I would end up turning inland north of San Francisco for a variety of reasons. I had decided that this would be the year that I do the whole thing. And while I was at it, I thought it would be a fun challenge to try to ride all of the major Sierra Nevada Passes in one day and get pictures of the SweetTreat at each sign. I figure life is meant to be lived, and sometimes you have to go at a little harder than normal to see what you want to see. Riding does not take any special talent, just a decision to leave the safety of the couch and get out there. I hope that this will encourage you to take that trip that you've been putting off for years. Enjoy today - for who knows what tomorrow will bring. Come with me on this 6,300+ mile journey in 12 days to see the beauty of the West as few ever see it. Hope that you enjoy it!
