women's week 2016

In September of 2016, nine women gathered at Hotel Il Perlo Panorama on Lake Como for a week of cycling, Italian culture, glorious food, and amazing views! Some were new international travelers and some had been all over the globe, and a few even left their husbands at home. But they all came together not knowing everyone, and left with bellies full of laughs and lasting friendships. Oh....and they rode more than they ever thought they could! There is something about riding in Italy that taps into what you are truly capable of accomplishing. The full gallery of photos is available on my Flickr site.

"Thank you for introducing me to this beautiful area! I did more riding and climbing than I ever imagined I could. Sitting on the patio of Hotel Il Perlo and listening to the church bells was a dream. I can't wait to come back!"
