oct 14 - five counties ride

this one sounds awesome.... big john says it's almost "heartbreak 100"! info here


Quote:
Ride through portions of Kern, Los Angeles, San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, and Ventura counties, all within a 101-mile route. This is not an easy century. It includes about 8000 ft. of elevation gain, including a long climb late in the ride. But you can always opt for the mini-century and skip 1 county, 14 miles, and about 1000 ft. of elevation gain.
we'll probably do this if the weather is decent! (this drive is even FURTHER than ventura! but LAW do an AWESOME job on rides! and the area is gorgeous!)

I don't know why you think it's Sunday, they haven't even put it on their schedule yet. It's one of my favorite rides, have done that loop at least 12 times.

Boy, that is confusing, he just leaves the old date out there until they announce the new one. I will talk to him about it.

The bad news is there is a landslide on Hwy 33 and it is closed 2 miles south of the SB/Ventura county line. I hope they clean it up quick.
