                                            CALIFORNIA DREAMING HOLIDAY TOUR 2010
                                            December 26th–31st (with optional New Years Day century)
                                          Let’s face it, the hectic holiday season between Thanksgiving and New Years can
                                          present a real challenge to your sanity and physical health. It’s not supposed to be
                                          that way, of course. At least that’s what the movies and television tells us. Most of
     you reading this have one simple solution for the challenges of everyday life: go for a bike ride... on a regular basis. But,
     somehow, this is a time of year where it’s easy to let go (putting on a few pounds, and pushing a training/fitness program
     to the bottom of the to-do list).
     But what if you had a great cycling adventure and some nice weather to look forward to... something to keep training for
     even as the daylight hours slip away? Welcome to Second Summer Tour’s Holiday Tour 2009. You’ll have a great oppor-
     tunity to get in some early season miles at ‘talking pace’, meet some new friends that share a similar two-wheel passion
     and work off some of those holiday treats (even while savoring plenty of tasty and mostly healthy meals for the week).
     M AUI DELUXE SPORT EDITION
     December 31–February 6, 2010, Sunday–Saturday
     The deluxe tour features the Maui Triple Challenge and many non-cycling extras like
     massage treatments. Resort-level lodging.
     M AUI BASIC EDITION
     February 7–February 13, 2010, Sunday–Saturday
     Offers many of the same rides and activities as the Deluxe tour (including the Triple Chal-
     lenge), but our accommodations are more budget-minded.
     NEW ZEALAND SOUTHLAND EXPRESS
     March 7–20, 2010, Sunday–Saturday
     14 days of stunning riding incorporating a combination of hotels and travel lodges to give
     you an intimate feel of the land, people, and culture.
     TOUR DE A NDES CUSTOM TOURS (FOR CLUBS AND SMALL GROUPS) / FEBRUARY–M ARCH
     Based near the Argentina/Chile border, enjoy some of the best riding in the Southern Hemisphere—with a touch of luxury.
     *NEW * A MGEN TOUR OF CALIFORNIA
     May 18th–23rd
     Join us for the final 4 stages of the Amgen Tour of California as we ride much of the same
     courses as the pros will. Option(s) include arriving early to enjoy some extra riding days.
     ORANGE COUNTY, CA–CYCLING B&B (YEAR-ROUND)
     Featuring an extra large lap pool, two fi replaces, ½-acre of landscaped grounds, 3 bed-
     rooms, and a great selection of weekly and weekend rides for every riding ability.
     Rob’s involvement in cycling spans more than four decades, ranging from the traditional (a partner in the Burley Design Cooperative
                         for over a decade) to the extreme (four-time Race Across AMerica competitor). He holds a number of long-
                         distance records with tandem partner Pete Penseyres, and has earned several National Championship jerseys.
                         Escaping the cold Northwest winters, Rob’s home for 15 years, he found exotic locales where it’s summer in
                         January and February—the genesis of Second Summer Tours. In the past several years tours have expanded to
                         include Southern California (Holiday Tour and Amgen) and Oregon.
