Anyone get in the DR? I got rejected...
But haven't heard from them. What's up with that? You used to be able to show up the day of the ride and register because some people couldn't make it, but this year they are giving out tickets which people that can't make it can give away or sell.

I got mail tuesday saying I was in. Then a couple hours later, mail saying they'd sent mail to the wrong list. Then a couple hours after that, mail saying I was not in. I'm bummed! I hadn't realized how much I was looking forward to riding it again. Hopefully I'll be able to find a spare ticket.

The real bummer is that you can't sign up the day of the ride anymore.

Sounds like it has become a very popular ride.

Dang, just got a rejection notice.

Boo hoo, poor me, boo hoo. Oh well. Lots of brevets out of Santa Cruz, SF, and Santa Rosa coming up. More bang for your buck than Death Ride.

I got passed as well

I missed the lottery as well. Probably a good thing since I wouldn't be able to find the miles leading up to it. Done if a few times and it's one of my favorites. There still plenty of suffering to go around. Summer Solstice in Plumas has 13,400 in 200k (http://www.summersolsticecentury.org/Routes.html) and those who really want to hurt can give this one a try... http://www.sonofdeathride.com/

Nasty stuff...

But, like all things with any value, the Death Ride tickets will probably show up on ebay.
You can also do your own death ride anytime. You won't have to drive a long distance to cycle on roads packed with cyclists that are normally very peaceful. ;)

Did you do the Skyline 200K Brevet Sunday? A couple of us from Benicia did it for the first time. What a great ride - and a great organizing duo in Bill and Lois!

Are you doing it this year? We did it last year and are signed up again this year. Great ride and outstanding support.

I liked riding up Eureka Canyon with all the little streams everywhere. I live in Sunnyvale so I ride in the Santa Cruz mountains and along the coast fairly often. The tailwind at the end was nice. Hats off to Bill and Lois.
