Hey Lee, great ride Saturday. How did the pre-ride go on Sunday? I did my road ride like I planned, but am curious of how the course was. Just 3 weeks away now.LeeMan said:Hi All:
I don't know who tried to ride today (Saturday, 7/24) and who decided
to bag it, but a few of us went riding today in Golden Gate Canon State Park,
and it was just about perfect.
It was wet all around, but the trail was fine. A few of the roots were kind
of slippery, but boo hoo, we'll live. We saw one other bike and about 3 or
4 hikers. 10 miles took about 2.25 hours. The sun even came out a few times
So that's the Saturday reports, here's the Sunday Offer ...
I'm heading up to Leadville tomorrow early to ride the 35 of the first 40 miles
of the Leadville 100 race course.
This isn't too hard of a trail, to be honest. I'm a slow racer, and I usually
finish the first 40 miles in about 4 hours on race day. So I fugure 35
miles at an easy pace will take about 4.5 to 5 hours. PM or email me
if you want more details. My wife will be coming with and playing
pit crew at the first two aid stations (for practice).
