Borrego Springs Century 1-26-08.

R&B Bicycle Club is announcing their annual Borrego Springs Century coming up Saturday January 26th, 2008. Ride distances range fro 35 to 100 miles with up to 6 aid stations.
We feel this is the finest desert century anywhere. No stop lights to be found.
Based out of our host hotel, Palm Canyon Resort, come bring the family and spend a great weekend getaway.
Rider limit of 500, so sign up soon.
For more details, route sheets, maps and sign up information please go to the following link: http://www.julianactive.com/borrego%...%20century.htm

Looks like the Borrego to the Sea loop then the Tour of Borrego hooked together!

There is that 10% dip I was talking about. Seems to be about 70 miles into the ride. Better get to climbing Axel!

Well that section can be avoided since it is an out and back section but then you would miss the great downhill rush!

Yeah, and the guy at the top of the climb waiting to greet you with an "ok, now turnaround and do it again!"
