Around where SKT lives it is vitually impossible to do an interesting 100km without some hills,

I applaud your enthusiasm, SKT, But be careful not to over do it. I rode to Monterey from Livermore on Thursday along an inland route going through Hollister and Salinas. I will maybe write it up soon. But anyway, it turned out to be 140 miles...about 20 more than I had calculated.

The yesterday (Saturday) I rode a hard 40 miles over Patterson Pass and into the Central Valley pushing myself cause I though I was lagging. But, actually I did it faster than ever before. Still, I think I am going too hard so have not biked at all today.

Good luck and happy tail winds to all.
