    If you’re in the neighborhood (Guerneville) give Sveta and I a holler. Would love to buy you a beer!

  • …. Expected arrival to Lindley Meadows is 2 pm to 5 pm in Golden Gate Park. Lindley Meadows is near 25th ave and Fulton on JFK. Come welcome her to one of her favorite cities! Team Roz climateride!

  • Roz is currently inundated in administrative work. She continues to do well and survive what the sea and land adventures have doled out to her. And although she is worn and often submerged in the constant onslaught of the work behind protecting the world, I know from first hand that she has each and every one of you in her mind as she does what she can to address each email and kind hello. Also rest assured that as soon as she has a moment to catch her breath, she will be back in full force! I have clearly witnessed her mettle and determination(Support and Gear Wagon on ClimateRide). She is no where near ready to capsize now! … and even if she were to… She’d pop right back up again. Cheers Roz! Go Girl Go!

    up ahead… Bay Area Tour 2010!
