Adventurecorps has a new event "Montezulomar Bicycle Classic", scheduled on May 11. Looks like it will coincide with Etape, and there's a good chance that both events will be climbing Palomar at the same time.

Grazzi Gallo.
It's up, as well as the Giro di San Diego on 9/22.
You going to be riding the big one? Looks like a toughie.

Rode it last year. Honey springs is no joke. I am riding Mullholland on Saurday the 13th as the first leg of the KOM so the big ride is out. I liked the event the route was very little traffic in most parts outside of downtown and a section of CV well supported and a very nice jersey. As you might guess by my last name I have Italian heritage and the pasta was good as well

No love for the Wildflower on 4/27? Or is SLO/PR too far away to be considered a SoCal event?

It's a week before BA, but I signed up for it anyway because the jersey is so cool this year. Thanks for putting this together.

Geez! We've hit the limit on the character count. 40,000 characters is all that is permitted per post. I'm cleaning up the hideous, auto-generated UBB code, which will buy us a few more, but we're running outta space.
Is there anything a Mod can do to grant me a character count maximum override? Sure would appreciate it...

Naah--I was able to remove about 1/4 to 1/3 of it just by cleaning up the sloppy UBB code. We're cool now.

It's harder than Breathless Agony, than l'Etape (which finished at the Baldy Ski Lifts), harder than any other century I've ever done. (Though I haven't done the Death Ride yet.)

The first climb is beautiful, scenic, and not a complete killer.


The second one is pretty tough, but still idyllic and lovely.


The third climb is Hard. There might be scenery on that one too, but I don't remember.

Hey Chris, put me down for Sikad ng Bayan (65 miles) and Wildflower Century (100 miles) looking forward to new century route. I've done the old route three before. Last time I rode Wildflower in 2008 it was 43 at the beginning and 91 at 11:30 in Shandon for lunch!
I let you know when the SD Velodrome Spring swap meet determines it date.

That's the one that I (and about a dozen other equally crazy cyclists) tried to ride last year when it happened in a pouring rain. I managed half of Palomar and Cole Grade, but chickened out of descending down Valley Center Grade. In the words of the announcement email, "This year we've put in a special request for the best weather of 2013, rather than the worst day of 2012."
