Glad you "enjoyed" our ride. I've coordinated C2K the last 3 years but gave it up this year to finish the masters. I saw you come in at the finish as I was taking a break from BBQ'ing chicken and...

The buzz saw around the skull will probably hurt more. Or the breadloafing of the organs.
Either way, no excuse to stop riding. Maybe we'll see OP on the Death Ride stoking a tandem.

Climb to Kaiser

Who's doing the Climb to Kaiser on June 30? 13,500 feet of climbing, 155 miles. I rode it last year, this year I'm coordinating it for the club. Should be better weather than last year's 112 F.
