A Grand Warrior Weekend

Posted by Active Toby Mar 2, 2009

The Gran Fondo Colnago was GRAND!!


JIM GARFIELD (AMG) had a grand time announcing ROB KLINGENSMITH’s new event, the Gran Fondo Colnago San Diego. He joined fellow Active volunteers MARK  KUUSIK (Active) and DAVE ALBERGA (All Active) in cheering fellow Active colleagues including REBECCA DIVITA (Active Camps) who came in Third Place for the women in the King of the Mountain hill climb competition up Honey Springs.  She accepted her award from none other then Ernesto Colnago, founder of Colnago bicycles.

PHILLIP GRAHAM and his wife rode the Zion Country Century -  a 105 mile road ride from St. George Utah to the entrance to Zion's National Park and back. The fun part was we did it on a tandem.  After 4,600 feet of vertical climbing, about 8,100 calories and some sore back ends we did it in 5:58. Pictured is myself in the middle with my wife on my left and friends we met up with.  The two other couples pictured also rode tandems.  The other picture is of my wife and me at the start.  33 degrees at the start and 70 at the finish - perfect day and great fun!




CATHERINE HANSEN joined the “Critical Mass” ride on Friday night. Over 250 participants started at the Balboa fountain. It was so amazing following the flashing red lights. The police were heavily patrolling the event, so I felt safe. It’s pretty dangerous though because we go through red lights and hog up all the lanes Went to Kensington and turned around for about 16 miles. We’re going to do it again on the 27th



TOBY GUILLETTE set out at sunrise on Saturday for a 20-mile trail run on the Pacific Crest Trail by Warner Springs with a couple running buddies. We had over 4,400 feet of climbing, perfect weather and beautiful views.
