    Beachgrad05, you are an inspiration. I like your pictures as I remember that area from the late '50s, early '60s, when I lived in Torrance and would wander all over Southern California. Sure looks different now.

    Thanks for the complement. I look forward to watching your journey. This board allows me to be accountable in some ways and inspires me to get out and ride. I like to take pictures to document my rides. Occasionally I use my GoPro to make videos.

    Nice job! Truly an inspiration. Year ago when I was a tough guy, I might have been able to join you!

    This was very well done. Great to see you riding, and getting it done.

    I am jealous of the weather there...I have snow everywhere.

    Well, I'm proud of you! I thought you were a little nuts when you signed up given your recent knee issues.

    Well done!

    Yes, I was nuts considering. My knee was way less troublesome than I had anticipated. If it had been painful like I had been experiencing I would have shined doing the challenge. But using patella support under a knee sleeve...helped. And the new knee support I got Sat morning along with the leg warmers both made it possible to ride the final three days.

    That is a nice patch, something to be very proud of.
    The bar is now set high, do you have any ideas for an encore ?
