Double Century Training Route
 
Maybe this weekend????

I was planning on doing this soon, and this weekend, looks like the weather is supposed to still be nice.

http://www.bikely.com/maps/bike-path...y-Training-SMC

Meeting spots would be:
My house
Canada/92
Canada/Woodside

Lunch would be in Pescadero (mile 50). Late Starbucks stop @ Foothill & Homestead (mile 128).

Dinner can follow in San Mateo, if anyone wants to, or at my place.

The route from my place would be 158 miles with 13,800 ft of climbing
The route from Canada/92 would be 147 miles with 13,300 ft of climbing
I haven't mapped it but from Canada/Woodside (84) it would probably be around 132 miles with 11,500 or so.

I was thinking of doing the Earlybird Crit, but might wait until next weekend for that, since I shouldn't do both in the same weekend (obviously). If I get no takers, I'll probably do the cirt. But I figured I would try to take advantage of the good weather.

Obviously this route is brutal, and will take all day. You should bring lights. If we start at 5:30 am (from San Mateo), I would except to finish around 8:30 pm. Canada/92 would be take around 6am - 8:00 pm and Woodside would take around 6:30am - 7:30 pm.

Part of the intensive to start/end in San Mateo:

1) You get to feel Crestview at mile 150, which will be my little version of hitting Sierra at mile 150 of the DMD.
2) We can have some sort of celebratory meal at the end, as a group, if that's your thing (I know I would want to.. haha).

EDIT: I edited the times/starting/ending info.

I copied it from my old post about it a couple months ago.

Thanks for the heads up, all fixed now :)

I will be rooting for you if you do this. It will really cement the NorCal BF group on the bikewire climbing leaderboard. Unfortunately, I am not hardcore enough to even think for a moment I could do this next week. Next year hopefully!

Ruth can't go, so I'd be solo.

If I get no response, I'll probably hold off until the next good weekend so we can use the tandem.

I will most likely be in Los Angeles this weekend, provided I get a pass to get into the NAMM show.

uspspro 01-12-09 05:04 PM

OK. Looks like this probably won't happen this weekend.

We can use this thread to figure out the new date. :)

I can't make it this weekend either ... I'm on-call.

Next week, I might have to be in LA, but not sure. Maybe in two weeks? But will I be lagging so far behind you?

Errr, I think I have to feed my fish that day. :innocent:

I am up for joining this ride at Woodside/Canada whenever it happens. Except I can't do Saturday the 17th at all. And I have a company dinner at 6pm on the 24th.

ps, Marco, the bikely.com link in your first post is still not working. Some bits in the middle of the link got cut out and replaced with "..."

No out of town excuses here. Just too many miles for me.

I fixed it now.
