Giro di Peninsula - 6/28/2008

Yea, I know it's a long way till June, but I received an email from the Festa Foundation, and registration is open for the Giro di Peninsula. We had a great BF turnout last year (we even had some SoCal BF'ers come too).

Just wanted to let everyone know (especially those that missed it).

I pulled my daughter in the trailer on the family ride with my buddy! Tiffanie had come up to do the ride and I was going to borrow her trailer. She ended up givng me the trailer! And I'm still very appreciative of her kindness!!

The ride was cool but they gave us the wrong directions. Per the people we ended up following it was the map from the previous year. Other than that it was a nice ride. Maybe this year I can do a longer ride if I can get a babysitter!

I plan on doing the Giro. Does anybody still have the ribbon from last year on their bike?

No Giro for me this year. I still have horrible nightmares about the untested saddle I rode on that day.

Gary, even after a year you still mention your appreciation... you're so sweet! I hope that you and the kiddos have been enjoying it.

There are no choices.

Century only, or live in the BF Norcal hall of shame, along with poor ride organizers

I'm interested but it's only a couple of weeks before my wife's due date..

Don't know how she'd feel if I tell her I'd be right there but I got another 36 miles to go before I can quit 'cuz I don't wanna be in the HOS @ BF...

Looks like this year's GDP is different from last year's...or am I thinking of another Giro?

I didn't know this was a charity ride. This is personal to me. I'm going to do this one but just the metric.

HA!

It was the first time I met you, Henry. You asked me (a couple times) if I used to race the Alleycats up in SF.
