During the race season from the end of February until September, we're on the road pretty consistantly. Often times we hop from one hotel to another, and return home for a week or so before lacing up the blue suede shoes. (You know, to board the plane. I don't actually have a pair yet but it's on the list of things to do.) Other times, we stay in what is called ''Host Housing''.
It's a pretty interesting concept, and a great way to meet new people, share what pro cycling is all about, and especially, to feel at home. A hotel is cool because you get your bed made every morning, but nothing beats the warmth and deep-down good feeling that a host house brings! Check out this video of Optum Pro Cycling in California.
