  2. Hi Richard!

    Thought
    you would like a heads up on this event—the major new initiative by
    the Napa County Bicycle Coalition.  And yeah, it seems to capture all
    that makes Napa what it is:  world class wine and food, and a rock star
    cyclist who is the best America has to offer….

    LEGENDARY NAPA BIKE WINE TOUR

    The ultimate Napa
    Valley cycling experience featuring gourmet food, world class wines,
    and bike riding mentored by Levi Leipheimer.

    Any
    chance you could write a little something about this to get it on more
    people’s radar? I know it has a hefty price tag but 100% of the proceeds
    go to the Napa Bicycle Coalition to ensure we can continue and
    accelerate our agenda.  As you might know, Napa is the least populated
    Bay Area county, and so has always received the smallest share of
    transportation funding, especially for bicycle infrastructure.
    Ironically, our roads are heavily impacted by visitors as the 3rd most
    visited destination in California.  So we have a lot of work to do and
    need to add resources to get the job done.Thanks so much for your time and I love your blog!Aileenhttp://www.napabike.org/legendary.php
