ACTC to San Gregorio

ACTC D2 to SGAnother tough ride led by David and Deb on a great day in the Bay Area for a long ride out to the coast.  I chose to break my spirit again by chasing David.  This time he had help crushing me in the form of Super Russ, Peter the mountain goat, and Alto Velo Fella Dave. I was able to keep them in sight most of the day until that last big climb.  Barry chased me down, catching me in Los Gatos as I was limping home.  Click on the map above to get to the album.

This was my 4th long ride of the year.

Low Key Mega Monster – 2008

LKMM RouteSteve and I rode hard for under six hours, definitely my fastest century ever.  With only 5,200 feet of climbing, this one was relatively light on the elevation gain compared to my other rides.  But it was a tough day out there thanks to how hard Steve pushed us.  I originally thought I’d be doing it on my own but on the way down Steve suggested we register as a two-man team.  That was a great idea since it was windy out there and we were able to paceline.  Having a couple more riders would have been even better, maybe next year.  Click on the map above to get to my pictures from the mega ride.

I don’t know why they call this a Mega Monster but we worked monstrously hard out there.  I was wiped out at the end.
