    Thanks for all of the feedback. I'll make a few adjustments.

    @grtob -- I'm not sure how you got 50 efforts. It's either 10 or 12 efforts based on 2 sets of 5 or 3 sets of 4, respectively.

    Thanks, guys. I started on the corner of 165 St E and Hwy 138. Would never ride the highway itself. Big shoulder, but crazy wind and even crazier drivers!

    Thanks, Steve! I'll check it out.

    Looks like another option for me is the House of Pain ride in Danville. I live in the East Bay and weekends are busy, but that might work, too.
