It was our pleasure to host Charles Schwab’s cycling event in the Napa Valley, California this September. It was great to see so many familiar faces and a few new ones. American Century Investments, DWS Investments and ICON Advisers co-sponsored the event.
This corporate cycling event was held at the Silverado Resort just outside Napa. There were two rides – a leisurely 25 miles in the flat valley and a challenging 45-mile ride with 1700 feet of climbing. All riders enjoyed a rest stop, tasting and tour at Pine Ridge Winery.
The California weather behaved impeccably with the early mist burning off to reveal a picture-perfect, sunny day and warm evening. The day was rounded off with dinner on the Fairway Terrace overlooking the golf course.
