No city invites the heart to come to life the way San Francisco does. 
Arrival to San Francisco is an experience in living. 
- William Saroyan 

A recent day off took me over the hill to Annadel State Park in Sonoma County. This petite park is located on the outskirts of Santa Rosa, and is bursting with possibility. There are miles of sweet single track to take advantage of whether it is by foot, or 2 wheels. At the top of the park lies Lake Ilsanjo, which is a great place for a quick dip or open water swim practice in the summer! Armed with a Yountville Deli sandwich and my Kindle I headed up to the lake (about 8 mile hike round trip via the Live Oak to Rough-Go trail) to enjoy an afternoon of quiet serenity.  

Don't you just love it when two of your favorite things team up and create super-goodness. That's how I feel about the Rapha and Team Sky partnership. Sleek and sophisticated Rapha uniforms on the best cyclists in the world... this is on the same level of sexiness as a man in a perfectly tailored suite. Perfection. If only my boy Cavendish was still riding for Sky...
