What events are you participating in? I plan to watch the cycling, to get an idea of what's expected of me.
I'm excited for you. How do you feel?
Hi Red Rider,
I am racing in everything offered: 5K and 10K TTs and 20K and 40K road races. I am definitely looking forward to it. Part of it is the Olympic type of experience -- being around a lot of athletes competing in different sports. I was a little disappointed with the lack of participants in the California games -- about 10 racers in the 50-54 age group -- but a silver and 3 bronzes were good regardless.

I know of three of my riding/training cycling companions that qualified and are going from NC. One of them used a strategy of going to another state to qualify as the TT route was faster than the one we used in NC.......Good luck to you all!!
