Bostic's blasphemous brain-draining bonk-inducing bohlman bonanza

NY Chris (chrisoco) has stated he intends to join me next month for the Terrible Two double century. We need to train on steep hills so I have thrown together this route. Start at Peet's on Homestead. Bohlman-On Orbit (just to second intersection), HW 9, Alba, Zayante, HW 35 are the climbs. 81 miles, about 10,500' of climbing but a lot of descending as well. A long ride with guaranteed misery, but not a century and not too much filler. HW 9 will probably have traffic but it's the fast route to Alba.

Bare minimum requirements: 39x27, 36x25, 34x23 or 30x21 based on your gearing. If a 39x25 is your granny gear you're probably way too strong already and will be bored by the pace.

Date to be determined shortly depending on attendence.

Count me in, except I can't make Memorial Day weekend - May 23-May 24. And yes, I just registered for the Terrible 2 (plus 9).

If it happened to be the weekend of the 30/31 I'd be interested. Maybe if it was the 7th of june (there's a race the 6th).

I would like to join this ride but there aren't many good weekends for me for the next month or so

Actually the weekend of June 6-7 is the least bad for me.

June 7th is the Sequoia Century (200K with 11,000 ft climbing), so perhaps that route might intersect with this one?
