Florida Training Camp - More Pics

Another bunch of photos for you guys.  

We have our only day off the bike tomorrow - maybe we will go to the Epcot Center or Daytona Beach....  not too sure yet.  It will be nice to let the legs rest and come back strong on Wednesday.

Today we did 80kms - it was supposed to be kind of mellow but we ended up working pretty hard for long stretches.  It seems that the pace just climbs and climbs as people start "racing" a little.  It's pretty fun - especially if you are feeling good.

We have done almost 600 kms this week with a couple of easy days in there...  my legs are ready for a little arnica and a day off.

Without further ado, here are some pics:

Jason - A coach from Alberta...

Sebastian - a coach from Quebec (standing in for Brian's usual pilot Devon) and Brian on the back.

Luc - the camp organizer and a coach from New Brunswick driving the support vehicle.

Nina - the massage therapist/photographer...

Yours truly - risking life and limb for a self portrait.  That's zinc sunscreen on my nose...


Publix - we come here as often as possible to buy food (and for something to do)....  We are eating an incredible amount of food.

Many thousands of dollars worth of bikes in our garage...

More bikes....

Typical lakeside riding near Clermont....

I think this is called the Green Swamp "Heart of the Floridian Aquifer"....  at least that's what the sign says....

Cheers from Florida!
