Santa Cruz Mt Challenge Century

http://www.santacruzcycling.org/scmc/2006/index.shtml


Check it out. The date has been set. This is a very challenging ride thrugh some of the finist cycling roads around here. Even the metric is tough. If you wanna look at the coarse and grades chck out the other link below. It is a very beautiful ride and a great time to come and enjoy some milder temps.

I might consider this over Cool Breeze this year as it looks spectacular.

I will be starting to ride parts of this route and I will post pictures as I do. It is very nice riding, lots of huge redwoods. Much like some of the other pics I have posted. If the weather gets out of the freezing zone Ill be up there this weekend.

I suspect you are correct, sir. I've ridden Carmel Valley (up into the canyons) while at the Sea Otter Century, and THAT was spectacular. So, this may be a go!

Maybe this could be the ride we could plan as a group... SoCal invades Sean's home turf.

Yeah, and I'll use you both as pillows and a blanky... See what trouble you get, Tracy, when you just try to be hospitable?
