Photo Summary of Sea Otter

I'm back in Tampa and breezing through the photos from the Sea Otter Classic from the hills outside Monterey brought back pleasant memories of a wonderful few days in California. It's northern California that gave birth to mountain biking and the Sea Otter Classic has grown into one of the premier all-around fun bicycle events in the country. Four days of bicycle racing, events and velo-loving.

The surrounding landscape is stunning.

The racing.

Great details all around.

You mean Clif Bar has an energy bar? I thought they are a beer glass manufacturer.

I need one of these flags for SWFBUD and the Bicycle Bash by the Bay

David and Tammy sold Tour de France caps and T-shirts.

The kids had a grand time.

Lots of fun people and fun bikes.

On Saturday night, the Bicycle Leadership Conference ended with a terrific dinner on Cannery Row in Monterey. Ken Grossman, the founder of the Sierra Nevada Brewing Co., was the guest speaker and showed a great slide show, which included this beauty of a bicycling bar.

An incredible bicycle conference in Monterey ended with a nice photo with Ken. Beer and bicycling -- a lovely match.

OK, now I see why beer is so popular in the bicycle world.
