How was y'all's ride? My first century of the season. I was in serious difficulty.
RAMROD could be interestoing this year as there is a chance that SR123 won't be ready in time for RAMROD because of a landslide. The official word right now is that Cayuse pass from the SR123 side will be open later this summer. Whatever later means. I am sure the Redomond cycling clubs knows more about this than I.jplatzner said:Hey guys,
I did it too, and I had a good time. At first I felt a little silly paying $40 to go for a bike ride, but I liked the route, and I always like riding with others.
I can totally relate to the difference between riding with racers and people who do these organized rides. I thought everyone could hold a line, no? Funny, but compared to Flying Wheels, Chilly Hilly, or STP the riders on 7 hills were much more stable! Perhaps the title scared away the less experienced.
But fun ride. You guys doing any of these: Flying Wheels, Tour De Blast, STP, RAMROD?
I can't compare the Shasta ride to RAMROD (never done the latter), but I heartily recommend the Shasta Super Century; it's a real challenge, well-supported, and located in absolutely gorgeous country.Spinnerman said:I will be doing Mt. Shasta Super Century for the second year in a row. It is 1/2 again harder than RAMROD.
hey Argentius, did you end up going to Elkhorn this year? If so, howd it go??Argentius said:I am from p-town, currently in Seattle, but more of a racer than an organized ride rider. Tour de Blast clashes with the Elkhorn classic, so I'm doing the latter, for instance.
What / when is the spring century?
