Wrapping up a maniacal couple of weeks, yesterday I rode the Cool Breeze Double Metric Century (200K). It was a super ride with great SAG, plenty of climbing (the DM had 8,542’), some nice descents, and amazing scenery.
Adding to the fun, I rode with a group from my club, the Conejo Valley Cyclists. It's always more fun to ride with other people, especially nice people you know :) I've posted a gallery of pictures here:
And here's a sampling for your viewing pleasure:
The trip through Hope Ranch was worth the ride all by itself – what an amazing area – and then you had the Ojai Valley, Lake Casitas, Montecito, Santa Barbara, and a beautiful ride down the beach to finish it off. Thank you to the Channel Islands Bicycle Club for organizing such a nice event.
