    The 2015 Grand Tour Double century was a lovely day on the bike with temperatures a lot cooler than expected. That made a huge difference on many of the climbs; Dennison Grade into Ojai and the...

    Yes, a very long day. Start of Devil Mountain was at 5:00 AM on Saturday, finish was at 2:45AM on Sunday. However, I did feel as if I'd had a full day of cycling! Good thing I wasn't the one doing...

    When I put new tires on . . . I just ride them, pretty much right away. This did bite me once, however, when I put a set of new Conti's on my wife's bike the day before we set out on the Butterfield...

    The bad news is that the attempt at my 2nd Devil Mountain Double ended with a DNF at mile 181 (still counts as a century though . . . right?). My back gave out on Sierra Road (about 2/3 of the way...
