Hi all:

Well its not much compared to some of you, but I was proud of my riding
this last weekend. I did Chuck Bramwell's Lake Mathews Century on
Saturday up in Orange County--a great route including 25+ miles on the
fast bike path by the runoff drain (or whatever they call these concrete
canals up there). Then on Sunday I did 50 miles from Santa Ysabel with
some of the San Diego Breakers (the group that trained together for the
Alaska ride last year).

Sooo.. what's up this weekend? Anyone doing some long rides Saturday or
Sunday? There's no century in Orange County, though there is a 50 miler
organized ride in Eastlake on Sunday (see www.eastlake.net and click
cycling) -- anyone know anything about this ride? I just found it on

Coming up on 5/4 is the Breathless Agony ride, which sounds like a good
one... see www.cyclingpros.com for details... 112 mi / 11000 ft climbing
total, as high as Onyx summit at 8443 ft elevation! I just might go for
this one!

SDBC has a race on Sunday, so I don't think they're planning an
"endurance" ride. North County Cycling shows their long ride as the SLO
Century... but that's too far away!

I'm game to lead a century on Sunday using the route I developed for an
SDBC endurance ride a while back. Here's the route (I'll clean this up
for the cue sheet):

So, who's up for this, say starting at 830?
