April Showers Bring California Smiles

We've lived in Park City for thirteen winters and whether it's El Niño o La Niña, April at 7000ft is so indecisive it drives us crazy. By mid-April, the ski resorts are closed and it's time to transition to full-on road cycling. The weather cooperates just enough for a few rides outside, but there is always a rogue snow storm that sends us back to the trainers in the basement. In order to keep sane, we typically head south for a long weekend of early season mountain biking.

After spending the last two months nursing my shoulder and with still three more weeks in the sling, a long weekend wasn't going to cut it. Fortunately we can both work remotely, so we packed up the truck for a California road trip.

We had limited wifi the first few days, but now we are operating at full speed (just in time for today's Flèche Wallonne bike race). We may not have our standing desks, but we can take our breaks outside instead of heading to the basement or the gym. We have been soaking up the sun, smelling the roses, and smiling. We are very pleased with our April escape to California!
