It’s been almost 6 months since I last was on tour. As I sit here writing and look out the window, I reminisce about the great week I had on the Sierra Sampler with a fantastic group. Here in Missoula, winter has come and gone, and on my daily commute, I think about where my travels will take me next.
When I look for a little break, I catch myself browsing our tours page looking for inspiration, and then spend hours planning out the logistics of joining up with multiple rides. I catch myself daydreaming about riding through the Red Rocks on Cycle Utah, then catching a plane and meandering through the Adirondacks of New York. Or maybe I’ll skip to the Erie Canal with my family for a great tour with kids, and then take a Relaxed trip in Southern Ohio.
For now, it’s all dreams, but I know I better pull the trigger soon – Trips are filling fast! For now, I’m sticking to the daily grind, ready to take my new office buddy for his first tour!
