Farewell for now, Santa Cruz! I head to Missoula today - via a stop in Seattle and will arrive at 11 p.m. at the airport. My bike tour with Adventure Cycling Association starts on Saturday. Here is the trip summary from my tour, Cycle Montana:
For 2008, spend a week bicycling through the scenic valleys of western and southwestern Montana. We’ll ride some of the same roads that Tour de France competitor and Butte native Levi Leipheimer trained on during his early days as a bike racer.
