    I just got the email reminder. This is on August 15, 2015. Starts in Ventura. You can pick your distance on this one. Pretty well organized, stops are well stocked. I did the double metric century (130 miles) in 2013, about 7,000 feet of climbing on that one. I'm thinking about doing it again this year, particularly since you no longer have to ride on the 101 freeway for 5 miles.

    If you're into epic road rides, extremely well supported, take a gander at this:

    I don't see anything for the 2016 ride yet?

    That does look like the "next step" in my road riding... I'd like to try something longer than a century, and shorter than a double.

    It will be in August, 2016. Still 10 months away. Unless I jinxed it by bringing it up. :)

    It's a really good time, and when you're done you know you've been on a serious ride.

    This fell off my radar for some reason. It's on August 20, only 10 days away. This is a fun one, for anyone in that area.

    I don't think I'm quite back up to snuff to do this one this year, though.

    image.jpeg image.jpeg Long long long day with the mrs. She is not a climber and there was some really stout climbs in the 30 to 40 mile range that took a toll on her. The route was amazing with views for days and markings were great. Took us 10:15 total time with a little over 8 hours of ride time. Longest she has done by 4 hours and 37 miles

    Camped at foster park a few miles up the road and it was a nice little county park. We are talking about being back next year.
