I signed up for the Cool Breeze century - it starts in Ventura CA and works its way up to Santa Barbara and then back. Weather is supposed to be awesome - high of 74 or so (where have I heard that song before?) and a nice tailwind from Santa Barbara all the way back to Ventura.
There are two hills - one is about 1,000 feet but the overall century is pretty flat (3k climbing total). I've put a ton of miles in my bike this year, which would mean 1,800 for me so far and I've ridden as far as 87 miles (did a 75 miler two weeks ago) so I think I'm ready!
I'm carpooling out in the morning with one of my occasional riding buddies, so the temptation to ride at his pace needs to be squashed (he'll probably average 18 mph or so and I could probably keep up (drafting) for some number of miles more than 50 and less than 100, but the less than 100 part concerns me. ) Good thing I'm doing the driving so I have that choice. ha ha.
Nothing left to do but to do it I guess.
