Time to Ride

Tomorrow I leave for a week to help lead the “Winterim” cycling trip to Napa and Sonoma Valley in California. We also get to stop and ride in the Redwoods as well.

At OES, the US students get to choose from a wide set of offerings for the week before Spring Break. Some go on international trips, some go backpacking in Utah, and others take experiential learning courses for a week on campus (how to build a kayak, for example).

I enjoy this trip, and we get to visit wineries, but no tasting or buying. It is a lot of work in that we drive down with Suburbans and tow a U-Haul with the bikes inside. Overall, there’s about 1400 miles of driving. Most nights we camp out.

Still, it’s worth it for some sun and quiet roads in some beautiful countryside. We’ll be back a week from Thursday.
