This morning I had intended to join the "hills of San Francisco" ride @ 9:45. I left my place around 8 and was going to do an hour on the Polo Fields as a warm-up, but instead I stayed for nearly 4 hours (3:43 actually) and rode 80 miles (120) laps.
I would have done the full century, but I had to be home by noon. So, I think I'll do the century next Saturday instead. Some people may think it's crazy, but it's incredibly efficient training. No stopping for stop signs or stoplights, no coasting on the downhills, just hours of nonstop pedaling.
So, if you want to join me next Saturday, let me know. I'll plan to start @ 8am sharp & finish by 12:45.
Also, feel free to come by anytime & say hi or join me for a few laps.
If there's enough guys we can shoot for sub 4 hours
I will make sure not to join you guys on that day. I would die after 20 miles of trying to keep up. Besides, my pace-lining is not all that efficient. Today was actually my first day ever trying it out. Needs a bit of work.
How is the traffic there these days, specifically soccer game related? Been thinking of heading there on my track bike, but a couple scares last year have me scared.
btw, what exactly is a thesaurus?
I think the field has been closed for a few weeks. I haven't seen anyone playing soccer or doing anything else on the infield lately. Last Saturday there were only about half a dozen other cyclists the whole time I was out there. Hopefully this Saturday will be quiet too.
Weather forecast looks good for the 1st Polo Field Century tomorrow.
Start temp should be around 59 degrees, getting up to 70 by the end.
It looks like there will be some wind from the west, starting off at about 6mph and building.
