    Group Ride Pictures

    Every Sunday, our coach hosts a group ride where he follows in the car and provides advice and etc. Yesterday, we rode to the coast over Skyline and climbed Tunitas Creek road which was one of the featured climbs in the Tour of California. The ride was 51 miles with 4,212 ft of climbing from my altimeter. My TSS was 207.

    It was going to be a warm day at our house but on western side of Skyline it would be much cooler with wind off the ocean.

    Here is our group warming up with my wife on the front and I am in second position behind the other leader in the double pace line.



    We are entering a township that requires single file. I am in second position with my wife on the front a couple of riders ahead.



    Here we are climbing Highway 84.





    Clmbing the lower section of Tunitas Creek - 4 to 6% grade. Later, it pitches up for 8 to 12% for about a mile.

    It was a beautiful day with temperatures in the 70s on the west side of Skyline and 90s on the east side.

    Great pics. When you ride pace line do you typically leave that much gap? I find the pace lines I get in people are riding much closer or at least thats the way it seems.

    On the picture of you and your wife climbing the hill - I assume the rest of the pack is about a 1/2 mile or so back - break away!

    In the pics, we were warming up so everything was more relaxed. In the faster sections, the gaps closed up.

    In the pics of my wife and I together, we were near the back of the line of riders. We were the last to arrive at regroup and the last to leave.
