FIRST, there is a new pony in the stable and I can't believe I get to ride it.
My very first ever custom painted bicycle...This Women's Hi-Mod Cannondale Slice is one of a kind and designed by me.
Sparkly pearly gray, bright turquoise (my Zoot Aruba color), and blingin' white...
|Mmmmmm....Cannondale + SRAM Red + ISM Betty Designs saddle + Beaker Concepts Blaze + 3T Mistral bars + Zipp 101s = So much in LOVE|
|Ready to go...|
On my first real ride, I took 'er out to the hills of east county to show Sarah Piampiano what we got down here and entice her to come back and play with me this summer. We had a great ride and the words spoken to pedal strokes taken was probably 1:1 . Win-Win.

After the ride, we headed down to watch the International Triathlon Union World Championship Series (ITU WCS for us tri-geeks) in Mission Bay, San Diego. This event was a huge opportunity for our town and tri community and it was amazing to spectate and watch how the real triathletes do it. The guys were running 30-minute flat 10ks off the bike...Insanity. My former cycling buddies Mary & Bethany were in town and we spent some quality time in the STONE beer garden
