Greetings from San Diego! Looking over the San Diego Harbor from my hotel balcony, taking in some sun and relaxing. Eva and I decided to take a couple days for ourselves after the book tour. We were just talking about the tour … A week ago we were in NYC, which seems like months ago! In 6 days, we stopped in NYC, Portland, SF, San Jose, Seattle and San Diego.
I would like to thank all the bookstores, bike shops and corporations who hosted the “We Might as Well Win” book tour. And of course all the fans who came out to get their books signed. I won’t recount the entire tour, but I’ll briefly list some highlights.
Pictures and articles from the book tour will be posted on the site so stay tuned!
Another bonus was having Eva come with me on the book tour. She had a great time and I appreciate her patience and support. Trust me, it’s very tiring to travel every morning to another city and then do 2-3 appearances plus interviews, but she was great! Some people were asking where Victoria was … Now it certainly wouldn’t be very fun for a 4 year old to tag along on the book tour so she spent some quality time with her grandmother (Eva’s mom) in Valencia. We spoke to her every day and like any child is, having a great time running around the beach and playing in the sand.
Let’s see what’s up next … We are flying back on Tuesday, arriving in Madrid on Wednesday morning. Thursday and Friday at home, then off to the Tour to be a guest commentator on VERSUS with Bob Roll and Craig Hummer. I’m really looking forward to this opportunity and I hope Craig and Bob will enjoy it as well. One last note - Before I leave, I’ll be doing a live chat on Bicycling.com. It’s scheduled for the last hour of Friday’s stage. The information will be posted on my homepage as soon as there are more details. Hopefully you are enjoying my Tour de France blogs … The links to those blogs are posted on the homepage and “In the News” section (click on “About”)
We’ll talk again from Europe. Take Care - JB
