Mt Tam Double - Mesa Rd Rest Stop @ Mile 73: LanceOldstrong & Cccorlew here to serve

After 25 Centuries and 4 Double Centuries it is high past time for me to be on the street shoes side of the table at a rest stop. So tomorrow fellow NorCal Forum member Cccorlew and I will be dishing out the snacks and drinks at the Mesa Rd rest stop on the Mt. Tam Double and Mt. Tam Century.

We are both rest stop rookies but this 2 person "mini stop" as the organizers call it, should be a perfect first opportunity for us to give back to our sport. If you ride the Mt. Tam Double or the Mt. Tam Century tomorrow, I look forward to meeting you in Pt. Reyes at mile 73.

Good luck on your event. We will do all we can to get you in and out of our stop smoothly with all the support you need.

For reference Cccorlew is the handsome one, I am the tall one.

I have yet to volunteer (although I suckered my girlfriend for doing it at the Death Ride last year) but somehow I know you'll have a ton of fun. Taking pictures is an awesome idea too

Not a bad location to spend the day and another step closer to the Golden mantle. Have fun.

It was great to see you yesterday, you are going to look good in the Triple Crown 1000 Mile Gold Medal Club jersey.

You should be rested by now and no stats yet.

What about average HR, average number of PB&J per hour, total number of sandwiches served?
Did Curtis stuck to his 'minimum rest' technique all day long? How did Daniel survive the pace?

Anyway, job well done and kudos for the organic products.

Yup, we were valet parking bikes because whenever I have been on a double where staff did that, it was such a nice touch. When I am tired and hungry sometimes just getting fed and watered is all I have the brain power to handle. Looking for a place to park the bike just seems huge at those times.

I have to say that I think it's awesome that there were organic PB&J sandwiches. I've found PB&J to be a great ride food, but I can't eat Skippy!
