What's a SAG stop?

There is no better way to describe a SAG stop than to show our very first one on our cross country Southern Tier tour. Here is our trusty Subaru, about 20 miles into our first day's ride, expertly manned by Kaye Whitney. It's a place to fill up on water and snacks, apply more sunscreen, ice a sore muscle, get news of the terrain ahead, or just share in the joy of the ride.

Southern Tier 2007

The 29 women of our 2007 Southern Tier tour began their odyssey across the US last week. What an honor to begin the journey with them. Record 105 degree temperatures and stiff headwinds couldn't deter them as they crossed California. They'll bike into Arizona today and celebrate their first state line crossing tonight with a margarita party. I miss them already - they're an incredible group of women.
