14 times, I (Tony Eason) have biked 7 days, 575 miles, from San Francisco to Los Angeles in a cycling charity event now titled AIDSLifecycle. In route to Los Angeles, I (and 2,000 of my best friends) bike thru Montecito – the home to Oprah Winfrey.
Each Year, the local residents of Montecito gather and create their own “Paradise Pit Stop” for the approx. 2,000 AIDSLifecycle Cyclist & 400 Volunteer Crew members.
There you can find: chocolate bars, strawberries, homemade ice cream, vegan treats, corn dogs, Twinkies, coco cola, massages, and then some.. … ALL YOU CAN EAT …GRATIS!
Years ago (as I ate my strawberries and homemade ice cream), I asked several Montecito fans / residents: “Where is the Oprah Winfrey Network Channel?”
