First race back (long beach crit)

I went down to Carson, CA (haha) to do the Long Beach Crit, that's right, I raced! Its been awhile but I felt fit and even got 5 best all around rider point on a 1k flyer.

It cool you can see my 1k break at mile 9.5

My heart rate is also reflected at 9.5 a new max for the season (191)

Even got a pic of it!

Gibraltar, Paradise, Painted Cave, Old San Marcos

I will be doing this ride twice a month (1st and 3rd Wednesdays of the month, 7am @ the Roco) starting 11-19, Climb, Climb, Climb. I am also playing with the idea of doing the Arroyo Burro dirt road on the way back from Paradise.

I hear they repaved a lot of the bad stuff. Gibraltar Hilltop finish at the Tour of California in 2010?

55miles, Climbing TBA

It was a very Cold, Wind, Hard day. Ice at the top and howling wind, but me and Hajo the German Banker from New York concord the mighty Figueroa! On our way back from Solvang to Los Olivos on Ballard Cannon Road we ran into Cody O'Reilly out on a training ride from Santa Barbara, crazy fast kid! We then had lunch at Panino and now I have to drive back to Redding, Saturday ride, here I come, rain and all!

Los Positas Park & Tuckers Grove

So I wished for mud and I got it, and the mud got me, I wish I brought my camera, I rode threw Los Positas Park which is right by my place. I rode down some switch backs and it was really tacky clay, it was so bad that it stopped me in my tracks and made my bike weigh about 50lbs and took me 10min to get the mud off enough to ride. I then continued on to Tuckers Grove which was a good ride but short, nice single track with a few creek crossing and mild rocky sections.
