Santa Cruz to Monterey – again

Posted on May 31st, 2008 in Uncategorized by lane2train

SC to MontereyAbout 17 of us ACTC members set out at 7:30 in the morning for clam chowder in Monterey.  I was the ride leader and we had a great ride.  This is my favorite century because of the minimal climbing. . .

SFF 2008In 2005 this was my first century ride and this was my third time riding it.  I did this one on my own since I couldn’t talk anyone into joining me again.  It was a good one following the iCare Classic the day before. . .

iCare Classic 100K

iCare ClassicRode this one on my own and was originally hoping to knock out two centuries in a row but it didn’t pan out since it was so hot on the southern end of the ride near Hollister.  It was close to home and over terrain that I ride frequently.  Good to be in familiar territory. . .

SJ to BBI led this ACTC ride but only a few folks showed up since Donnie had a big crew with him heading up to the Lick Observatory for lunch.  Mike and I ran into Patrice on Highway 9 and joined her for a snack at Big Basin Park before trudging back to the coffee shop. .

Grizzly Peak Metric Century 2008

I chased Dave Z on the North Loop from and back to Campolindo High School.  With the wind, cold, and lost energy chasing Dave I decided to ditch the South Loop and only put in 73 miles on this one.  Disappointing but I didn’t have another 40 miles in my legs and especially not in my head.  I was done when we returned back to the school.  .
