I agree with Dante, except we didn't have trouble with casino traffic. I've done it, what (?) four or five times now, and I might be the minority but I like it!
I worked it last year and ended up doing the staff ride in cold rain and wind on Dec. 13th (with 8 hours in the dark!), so I'm going to ride it on the ride date this year, and for sure we'll have better weather than we had in Dec.!
What has me worried is that I have only six days for recovery before the Bass Lake Double, then six days for recovery before the Fall Solvang Double (which is lots tougher than Spring Solvang Double).
So, Dante, I've been working on my "A" recovery game! After Mt. Tam last weekend, I recovered enough to ride 136 miles and 14,000 feet of climbing this past weekend (Aug. 8 - 9). Feel kinda knackered today (Monday Aug. 10).
Anxious to see how I feel on the club ride on Tues. evening . . .
