Me climbing on Foxen Canyon Road about 25 miles out.

Me giving Doug Goodwin the finger for being obnoxious.

Me looking totally trashed in San Luis Obispo because I am.

Doug Goodwin and me at the Morro Bay rock at mile 100.

 

This is a great "first double century" of the season. The day was beautiful with no rain or wind. I, unfortunately, was in poor form due to not having enough miles in the saddle. To date, I should be at 2,000 for the year. I only had 1,000. It DOES make a difference! On this DC, there is not much climbing and a lot of spinning on the flats. An absolutely beautiful ride in central California.
