If you're lacking the motivation to saddle up these days, check out the list below to help you shake up your routine.
The onset of summer should have me excited about cycling. Ditching the arm warmers on rides. Saying goodbye to the long-fingered gloves. No more headbands under my helmet. The only problem is, I live in San Francisco where the summer months are Mark Twain's equivalent of cold winters. When you can’t see the end of the street due to dense fog, and intense headwinds turn your flat roads into slog fests, it's easy to lose your cycling mojo.
Husband to the rescue. He planned a destination cycling weekend, also known as a credit card ride. We rode the California coastline from San Francisco to a little motel on the Sonoma coast, stayed overnight, and cycled back the next day. There's nothing like an adventure on new roads to inspire you to get back on your saddle and enjoy the ride.
