    NorCal Tandem Rally and Wheelsucker Ride

    Hey gang. Before the calendars get too filled up, I thought I would throw out a proposal for the much-anticipated NorCal Tandem Rally and Wheelsuckers ride .

    My proposal is for Sunday, July 6th. Proposed route for the Wild Ride would be the Bucolic Backroads ride that we did in March. Approx. 70 miles and 4500 ft of climbing - apropos for tandems and wheelsuckers alike. We'd start in Half Moon Bay, go straight down Hwy1 for 25 miles to Gazos Creek. Then we wind inland and ride along some coastal backroads, including a climb up Haskins Hill. This will most likely be a very fast, ride-your-legs off group. Here's the Bikely link: http://www.bikely.com/maps/bike-path...Backroads-Tour

    For mellower riders, I've mapped out a Mild Ride here: http://www.bikely.com/maps/bike-path/147455. This will be 40 miles with 1500 ft of climbing. It's very scenic. Designed for fun and social riding.


    Meeting Point: Half Moon Bay Fire Station, corner of Main St. and Higgins Canyon Rd., Half Moon Bay
    Start Time: 9:15am


    If the group is up for it, we could end up at my house for a BBQ and beer. I also harbor thoughts about inviting the musicians in our midst to bring their instruments and we could do some jammin'. I know, I know, Paula's violin and Ramon's rockin' drums may not go well together, but hey, we'd be breaking new ground!!!

    Who'd be up for this? 'Cmon tandem teams - raise your hands...

    Headcount:
    Tandems In:
    Tandem #1 - USPSPRO and Ruth
    Tandem #2 - Ccallagh and RedRider
    Tandem #3 - Buildrunbike and stoker
    Tandem #4 - K5qbl and Andrea ?
    Tandem #5 - TBA - mystery tandem to lead the Mild Ride
    Tandem #6 - Smoooth and Sassy
    Tandem #7 - Hermes and Velodiva
    Tandem #8 - T4mv and stoker (maybe) for the Mild Ride

    Non-tandemer checking in (Calling myself a wheelsucker would imply that I can keep up, and I'm not quite ready to make that assumption. ). Even without a (working) Bikely map, I can say that I'm most likely in.

    Will this be taking the place of the Coastal Century this year, or will that be later?

    She tries very hard not to call off work. So Sunday would be best.

    We are in, as long as it's a Sunday and before July 10th (we're going to Europe then).

    OK, it's Sunday, July 6th. I'll change the original post. Let's see what kind of response we get.

    I think that smooth and sassy will still be out since smooth is having surgery. They might be ready by then, not sure. They will be piloting a new CF/Ti tandem once they are back in action. That much I know

    I know there are a few other teams out there... Hermes/velodiva, superunl, etc...

    I know there are plenty of wheelsuckers

    I'm supposed to be tapering for the Death Ride! Will this qualify?

    I'm on a 6-day tour the preceding week. However, if I'm back by Saturday, it's a strong possibility we'll make it.

    We might ask someone to lead a moderate ride in order to accommodate everyone.

    Knowing some of the folks, I suspect the wheelsucking will be done at an exuberant pace.

    LOL I've only ridden with you guys a couple of times, but I definitely figured that out already!

    I'll join in from Gazos Creek to San Gregorio. The stretch from La Honda to San Gregorio should be great for sucking wheel.

    I can do that - but Jonathan and the rest of the moderate group would still be waiting for me ........

    My stoker got a job and it's on weekends. I guess when you work in the healthcare industry, you gotta pay your dues before you can pick your shift
    So, no go for SU team on this but I'd be wheelsucking for sure
