I'm considering the Cruising the Conejo century ride in the Spring, but I find the stats on the "famous" Rock Store Climb somewhat daunting. I'm sure many of you have done it, and I'd like some perspective. Here's the context: I'm 74 yrs. old, ride 5000 miles a year, reasonably good endurance but I'm not a particularly strong climber--too old, too heavy. I do several centuries every year--Cool Breeze, Lighthouse, Windmill, Palm Springs--but have done none w/more than 5000' of climbing.
So what do you think? Should I just accept my limitations (which I don't mind at all), or give it a try.
