TNT Kickoff at the San Francisco Marriot

Today, my Solvang TNT ride was canceled. So, I was able to attend with Rick the official Spring Season Team in Training.  The sports for this season are triathlons, marathons, walkers, hikers, and cyclists.  We met our coaches: 
Jacqui Crist: who is an experienced endurance cyclists: deathride, triple crown, RAMM, Triple bypass etc.

Mike Gifford: who is has the same qualifications

Kim Collier: sports nutritionist, USA cycling coach, and a racer

Sascha Messner: pro cyclist for the European team and endurance cyclist. Love his accent

We have two honorees cycling with us Adrian and Grace who are both in remission!

Our team has 5 mentors: Janet, Alex, Amy, Greg, and Peg.  Our Honoree Captain is KSue, Community Captain is Steve, Web Captain is Dale and Sag Captain is Sherri.  Our team manager is Merla. 

I am very excited to see 35 participating members that is committed fundraisers for the Society.  A majority of us are TNT alumni's and I am looking forward to riding with my friends from the past and hope to meet/make new friends.

Our training calendar for scheduled training rides will be 1904 + miles and 148,100 feet of total elevation.  Watch out Markeleeville!
