Passport to Spain—Getting to Girona

Bags and bags...cases and cases...After negotiating with airport officials to get 10 bags and equipment cases on the airplane (between 2 people), and after almost missing our flight for undisclos'able reasons, we boarded our 747-700 'puddle jumper' - bound for the great nation of 'Europe.' Eventually, after struggling with 'what to do with my feet' for a cool 11 hours (I had a seat support smack dab in front of me, requiring one foot to be squeezed in on either side of the divide), our SFO born flight ultimately

Passport to Spain


Once upon a time (in April)...I got an email. Wait, there’s more. It was a short but oh-so-sweet two-liner from Matt Sharkey, our Sr. Sports Marketing Manager here at Clif.

Subject line: “Is your passport current?”

Copy body: “This is not a test.”

Did you Sea the Otter?

Team CLIFIt happened again. As if it were planned. The Sea Otter Classic, in Monterey, CA. Not only the world’s largest gathering of athletes riding two-wheeled contraptions (road, mtb, ramp, trial, downhill, slalom, cross country…) but it’s a helluvan expo to boot. Bikes, helmets, tires, wheels, breaks, shox, bars, apparel, shoes, socks, evening- wear, food, drinks, gels, gagets, GIZMOS! I’m fine. 
My 6th year at the event, I was down there with the CLIF BAR crew to take part in the Industry

NET Final Entry

No, not our final entry. The Natural Energy Tour.

You know, the Biodiesel Tour? That magnificently mobile display of Clif Bar glory we set out on the road a few months back, in order to spread the Clif Bar love and some 411 on the benefits of using alternative fuels...yah that.

Well, it’s done. Finished. Finito. No more. Completado. Tennessee to New York, Boston to Berkeley. Wicked Pissah - it’s over! You get the idea.

To say it was a great success would be an understatement. And
