    She did it, Gina's First 100 Miler

    Well on her single that is, she has 4 on the tandem but wanted a single century. 101 miles with Eyemage, El Monarcha and Me. 15.7 average 6:25 ride time. Nice flat ride including SART to Green river, PCH to Seal Beach and SGRT to Liberty park.

    15.8 according to GarminConnect

    Happy Gina after the ride.

    GregK, haven't seen this guy in a while, back on the bike!

    Thanks! She's been wanting to do a century for a couple of years now. But the organized centuries we pick always seem to happen right after something family health related happens. So we just said, "let's do it"!

    Bah, I see what you did there, stealing my thunder.

    Congrats to Gina, I have a new respect for people who can sit still for 100 miles. That's not a half bad route you did there, although I noticed you skipped that little hill to the green river parking lot, you chickens.

    You didn't run into any SGRT closures? I rode down last Sunday and it was blocked at 183rd street.

    Let me know if you do it again, I wouldn't mind riding a 100 miler that didn't require a 2 hour drive to the start. And flat too.

    Way to go, Gina. That's an awesome average speed. You're a lot tougher than you look.

    If I recall they stopped and turned around at Liberty Park which is South of the closure at 183rd. You can get around that closure and keep going south by getting off SGRT and then getting back on after 183rd...or go down into the riverbed and ride to the bridge where it connects to coyote creek trail...or if you don't want to ride that far...do I what I did a few rides back and go down into the riverbed...get past the blockage...take my shoes and socks off and walk up the incline back to the trail...put my shoes and socks back on and continue on my way.
    Move along....nothing to see here....anymore.

    Dude at 38 second mark in first video has the same helmet as ME! I have not seen anyone else wearing one. It is really a MTB helmet and I want to get a nice Giro or something similar eventually but I like my helmet for its crazy graphics.
