It looks like Cool Breeze is posted now (Ventura, CA)

Cheap registration ends on June 30 so mark your calendars.

I think I'll do this one again this year and try not to cramp like a sissy this time.

It sucks that when you click on "courses" to get an idea of the ride that it says that they're still "private" by the user. I'd love to get a feel for the where the hills are and the general overview of the course.

Those are all last year's info - the course info won't be updated till later. THe jerseys are still last year's design too (which I really liked - they seem to do a chinese zodiac design most years)

Here's last year's century: http://app.strava.com/activities/18975156

I believe the metric turned around before the "big" hill at about mile 30.

From the people who did the double last year, it didn't sound like a lot of extra fun. So a pox on you and your double, sir!

The double adds a fair amount of hill work early on but you run the risk of running out of popsicles at Rincon park at the end. I think I got volosong's popsicle, but don't tell him.
