    CAM Goal Saved

    I was able to get in my October century today. I left Pasadena at 5:00AM this morning. I rode to the San Gabriel River Trail to Long Beach. First the trail is closed at Carson. Not sure where the construction ends as I rode Studebacker to 2nd St. Second I saw a coyote with a vulture in it's mouth down by the river just after sun rise. Pretty cool. I ended up riding around PV via Western to PV South and up to LAX and back to my mother-in-laws in Torrance near South High.

    Almost exactly 100 miles, just a hair over. I finally turned on my auto start feature on the Garmin. My total ride time was 5 hours and 45 minutes. Considering I used the auto start that is a pretty sad time. My previous bet time was 5 hours and 59 minutes but I didn't use auto start. Either way I felt pretty good to get out. Nice way to end the weekend.

    Word of advice for those doing the CMA, try to get your ride done early in the month. That way if things don't go according to plan you have options and don't back yourself in a corner like I did this month.

    Good job, MTB. Actually, my CAM goal for this month was saved too. The NorCal BF ride was only going to be 60 miles, so I had to extend it ... well, we spent a little too long at Blastradius's house, and ended up finishing the last 20 miles in complete darkness. Lucky I had a small Cateye on my helmet.
    I'm in it to finish it.

    Are you saying SGRT is closed or the Rio hondo trial to LB?

    Congrats to all the rest of the folks that completed their October century and kept their Century-A-Month quest rolling.

    SGRT is closed south of Carson. Again I'm not sure how far. The people with puzzled looking faces at the close sign seemed to think it was closed to Spring St. I didn't bother trying to find out. I exited, headed west (right) on Carson, south (left) on Studebaker Rd. Studebaker does not cross the trail again. You can hook up with PCH by turning west (right) on 2nd St./Westminster Ave.
