Friday finally came and I was super excited! We made plans to have two different rides that day, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. I went on the morning ride with Dario-my coach, Zach Peterson, and Cole Avery. After the ride, we came back and went to the Whole Athlete center to eat lunch. When the riders who went on the afternoon ride came back, we all went to the team house for dinner.
Saturday was the "official" Day 1 of camp. Those of us who were staying at the team house met the others at the Whole Athlete Center to take photos. After photos, we got the bikes ready and went out for a ride up to the top of Mt. Tam. The climb up to the top took about 45 minutes. Once we got there, we took some more team photos.
Then we rode down the other side and took some video. The downhills were so fun! I got to play around, catch some air, do some tail-whips and bomb the descents.

Once we got back, we ate lunch. Whole Foods Market supplied the food. Then we did a group yoga class and ate dinner at Taco Jane's.

Here is the short team video that was made about our camp weekend.

My family and I spent one more day in San Francisco on Monday. We were pretty tired after a busy week, but went over to Alcatraz to check it out. EARLY Tuesday morning we flew home.
Overall, it was great time! I am fortunate to have the opportunity to be on an incredible team with some amazing athletes and I can't wait to represent Whole Athlete/Specialized at Mellow Johnny's in a couple of weeks!!
