Tandem and Wheelsuckers ride 2 ?

I really enjoyed the Half Moon Bay ride and was wondering if anyone fancied doing that same route again in the future ?

I'd be happy to do that same route again this weekend! I led the Mild ride last time, so I missed out on the hammerfest. I'm due!

Anyone else? I'm open either day...

I'm down! I haven't thrown a leg over the bike since 7pm on 7/12 at Turtle Rock Park. I've been busy drinking my recovery drinks (in beer form) and generally relaxing.

But I did get my shredded rear tire replaced with a pretty yellow Michelin Pro3, and managed to do it before suffering a flat!

I'm in for Saturday, but would need to finish early. Want to get back to Santa Clara by 4 pm, so if we could finish by 2 pm, that would be great!

Doh. I'll be out of town in Santa Cruz/Felton. Right direction but I won't be on my bike. We're going to ride on Thomas the Tank engine!

The schedule is getting pretty booked up.
Maybe we should add 2009 to Paula's sticky and pre-populate with dates for BF rides and other centuries and stuff.

I liked the Santa Cruz to HMB and back ride you guys did last year (Coastal Centruy?)! Of course I met you guys half way at HMB and only did the 50 mile route back... If you do that again I'd be up for it! ...er, the 50 mile part. hehe! And if I can get a ride back to HMB again! Can I hitch a ride again, Angel!?!

Oh yeah... it'd have to be a Sunday though. Family obligations on Sat.
