markw, I would carpool with you except I'm expecting to be taking a lot longer out there. I plan to take my time with the highland century. Rather than make people wait, I'll probably just drive myself up there.

You don't know, I'll be climbing on my recumbent. Lowland should be doable in 5 to 5.5 hours, highland will take me a good two hours to get over the stuff in the beginning, then watch out. We should hook up for a weekend ride around here sometime. Here are all of my routes so far. Oh, I've got to pick up my powertap in/around Camarillo after the ride so I wouldn't be waiting too long, and I fear you'd be waiting on me if I did the double metric. Torrey is an average of 8mph on the bent.

Saturday I'll be doing the Cyclo-Vets ride starting from Mission Valley. I'm thinking of joining, they've got a good program or two, and you get access to Arnie Baker. Starting in October, he has them doing climbing training out in east county.

For the uninformed, who is Arnie Baker?

If you're planning on the highland century, sure, I guess carpooling sounds good. I'm hoping for about 8 hours total time, so I guess you wouldn't be waiting on me too much if things go well.

I signed up for the double, and would probably be 8 hours or so judging from the topo map. You guys will kill me the first 5-10 miles. But revenge is sweet on the downhill. I'm still a bit gravitationally enhanced, but I will probably be below 210 by Sunday. We'd have to leave 4-4:30 figuring 2 hour drive to get there and I don't want to rush starting...

As for your other question...

You should do the Saturday ride. I rode to it, rode it and then rode home, 55 miles total. This Saturday I'll just do the ride itself since I'll be grinding up some stupid mountain on Sunday.

route slip

Hi guys! Does anyone know the route, or how to access the route? I already signed up (for metric) without knowing the difficulty (first metric ever). Great forum. Will try to break-in my new bike on this too.

By the way, how can I know who you guys are at the beginning? I only know your handles on this website. Just wondering. Would be nice to see who you are. Thanks

I am doing the Lowland Century! I hope the air has cleared by then, I work in Oxnard, and
you can still smell the fire, and the ashes are still all over...

You're bringing your Litespeed? Oh dear. We need to put some ballast on Fixer so that the rest of us can keep up!

I could smell smoke in Sherman Oaks last night, but I'm not sure it's from the same fire. They are predicting a cool down of sorts starting tomorrow (but then a reheat on Sunday). With this cool down will come humidity which usually helps with fire fighting. I'm keeping my fingers crossed!

Who's doing what route?
I'm doing the double metric with a friend (and a group, but many of them arrive late and we are not waiting after 7:45 a.m. to take off) and hope to meet some of you guys. My friend is a tall blonde on an orange trek and I'll be on my powder-blue one. I'm also generally a "permi-grin" type - so look for the tall and short blonde, the later with a big grin even while climbing Latigo.
