Tour of Borrego.

So I decided I needed some big goals in my biking. And an excuse to play in the desert yet again.

So I signed up for the Tour of Borrego this weekend. All 80 miles.

Now what the heck do I do with my number placcard?

I did it a few years ago but it was only 38 miles max at the time. Then I did the Borrego to the Sea ride. 62, much nicer ride for the money. Very nice scenery for a desert ride, good people and riders. I liked it cause it wasn't 10,000 like Palmsprings. Maybe 200 back when I did it!

I need to do another ride out there. 80 sounds nice. I also let Gina ride the TOB once and I just foloowed in the truck as a support vehicle.

The post ride meal was real GOOOOOOOD!
