Peninsula Century: June 14th
Rick and I met with some members of our DeathRide team for another endurance training. With input, we came up with a beautilful challenging ride. We started in Los Altos, climbed PageMill, thru Old La Honda, climbed Pescadero, Stage Rd, Losbitos Creek, Tunitus, Jefferson and return via Alameda. Our stats: 94 miles and 8900 feet. Highlights: we were never alone;each cyclist had a buddy. Then, we were unofficially on the Pescadero Stage Race. My inspiration: sucking the Morgan Stanley wheels as descending Haskins Road. It was amazzing speed. The male racers were friendlier than the ladies. We has had the pleasure of seeing Mike Cox as a referree on a motorcycle. Mike Cox is an awesome coach and TNT alumni. The Downside of the ride, KSue's wheel blew 3 miles from finish.
