    Tour de Santa Barbara Century III - Sat. 30th June

    Howdy folks, from the last poll for the date of the 3rd Van Nuys to S.B. century, it appears that Sat. 30th-June is the most favored date.

    Let's follow the same route as before:

    Tour de Santa B II - April 28th
    Santa Barbara II Ride Report & Pics - He Exists!

    Let's plan on meeting at the same place and time. I would suggest we take a more leisurely pace which would require fewer rest-stops to wait for people. The overall time would be about the same. Those who wish to catch the 4pm train can go ahead when they get to the top of Casitas and the others can take a more leisurely pace to make the 7pm train in S.B. (or catch the 4pm train in Carpinteria).

    On Sunday, for those who wants to stay the night, we can do the Gibraltar climb:

    I'll be on a plane headed to Fried Chicken Land on 6/30 but thinking of you boys (and girls if some join). Be safe out there and have a great ride!

    I may join on this ride since I missed the last two SB rides.
    I will let you know for sure as the time gets closer.

    I'd really like to give this a go, but I have been tapering for a tri this weekend, so I don't know if I have enough miles in my legs to make a solid effort. I'll have to see early next week how the legs feel.

    another rider from the club wants to do this ride also.

    If anything, I'll ask him if him and I want to duo the ride. If anyone else wants to join thats cool(hopefully someone that knows the way other than a route slip). I remember the route somewhat but it's very hazy. I remember everything up to Balcom very clearly

    Danno you coming down to Van Nuys?

    Danno are you coming down or meeting halfway? If this ride is a no-go, I'll try to convince him to ride it with me, otherwise I might back out myself too because this is a long ride to get lost on alone.

    umd may have been asking for you to re-interpret what you had said because he (and I) aren't really sure what you were saying.

    I may be interested in doing this ride, too.

    what I meant to say, but didn't come out correctly...lol...was that I was going to see if he wants to ride it with me if no one else goes. In that case, it would just be the two of us. As long as we don't get too many flats, I think we should make it out alive

    I'm interested in doing this as a large group instead though.

    Hehe, cars just bounce off me. My knee was sore the next day but otherwise I was fine. Knee is fine now. Bike... frame is ok, everything else was replaced. I plan to do something with this ride, even if it is just ride out and meet you guys on the road. I don't know about getting down to Van Nuys first, but there is always the possibility of staying the night in Westlake (at my inlaws) and riding out in the morning. That would add another 20 or so. It will also depend on what Danno is doing about getting down there.

    I think I can convince my ex-GF to drive me down early in the morning. There's a lot of shopping along the way so she'll have a blast on the drive back.

    For the next few weeks I'm going to have to cut short on my Saturday rides. I need to be home during the afternoon hours, most Saturdays, to take care of things. Therefore I won't be able to make this ride.

    I wanted to do this ride, but I think I am going to stick close to home so I can be
    home in the afternoon. I may ride with Agoura cycles or CVC Sat morning....
