I've done all those but Geyers. Maybe this year. I have ridden up to the Lake Sonoma overlook though. 1700 feet in 2.9 miles. Whew.

Thanks. I was completely wiped out today. Not necessarily sore, although my knees were a little painful when I got up but only the very first few minutes when I first got out of bed. Haven't felt...

Riders who saw him said he was going way too fast for the descent. I don't know if this is true, only what witnesses told the accident investigators. If so, it's a cautionary tale to take it easy and...

Well, I finished. Though I walked up the two steepest parts. But, I easily climbed the first big hill. In fact I got up with so much ease, I may have gotten overconfident. :-( The weather was...

Cold-like symptoms after a long ride?

I did 65 miles today on a local charity ride. Didn't feel great out there - sluggish, slower-than-normal and even rollers I've done dozens of times seemed hard. Then, after getting home, I felt...
