Yesterday I did another century put on by a local Fillipino bike club. These are the best! Everyone is friendly, the food is amazing, and the support is terrific. About 80 riders this time, and about 20 degrees warmer than last year.
The profile includes almost 10,000 feet of climbing including a steep finish line climb.
The lunch stop included hot soup, this time it was pozole, a red broth with hominy and tender pork, yum.
This is the old ridge route north of Castaic. Beautiful, car free roads.
