Nice little local ride done by Fremont Freewheelers. Kind of a last minute century.

I've done both the Chico Wildflower and Primavera. I would much prefer the Primavera. Chico is waaay overrated. Too crowded. Scenery is not that special.

In Primavera, I enjoyed riding up Calaveras and Felter Rd in Milpitas. Riding over the windmills in Livermore was a lot of fun. Climbing Palomares at mile 85 or something like that was a challenge. Nice support and friendly people throughout.

Just my opinion.

Don't forget to say "Hi" to the guy at the water stop on Greenville Rd in Livermore. He goes by the screen name of Dchiefransom.
