Will probably do the ride - it's one of my favorite. The Club does a good job with organization and all of the routes are lovely. I'm jealous you get to ride in the area all the time.

If one is thinking about it... do this ride. Well worth the entry fee!!!!

The ride calendar has become crowded. Hopefully we will see you next year.

After some considerations I thought why not? I'm doing the challenging metric as well. Still recovering from a throat infection from last week but that's my perfect excuse if I crack miserably on the mountains. =P

I'm down for this. Look for my classic bike. I *think* I'll be riding my 88 Blue White Miyata 512 with brand new fenders from Woody's Fenders. Yah, classy.

Gotta correct myself. I think the 2nd climb of the day is Rock Store. First climb doesn't seem so bad actually.

I've never done the Rock Store climb before. Interested to take it on though.

Yeah, I was actually interested in doing this ride but I already registered for the Temecula Challenge.

Hopefully I can do the Conejo next year.

Great ride this year but it was a bit too windy. Mostly everyone that I spoke to was scaling back their ride because of the windy conditions. Looking forward to next years ride!

Totally, I felt great but i would not want to do the century on that day. I did the Tour de Foothills century when it was windy but it was only windy for 10 miles at the end, it was windy everywhere today some of those rolling hills could have been so easy were it not for the wind!

It was so windy people were walking out in the flat area. Don't think I've seen that on a century before.

My friend dropped a chain and we stopped. When I tried to get back on, sideways to the wind, I literally got pushed back and almost fell when I had 1 foot on the ground and the other saddling up. Also rode at like 88 degrees for a while it was windy. Gnarly!

Boy was today windy!!! That on top of the fact that it was also out made the 68 mile ride pretty rough! I had a great time though! By the way.. does anyone know where to find the pictures they took online? I remember being caught off guard when I ran over the "spike strip" that activated the camera and I wanted to see the goofy look I had on my face! Any info on that would be great!
