Had a fantastic time riding with DHK, Mike, Sarah and TBO on the Chris King Gourmet (Metric) Century that rolled through Geyserville, Healdsburg and other scenic areas in Sonoma wine country. Saw lots of local framebuilders and friends, too! The food was incredible and will definitely look to doing this again next year.

While I don’t think I’ll be able to get a CA Triple Crown this year unless I hustle to some region outside of the Bay Area in the next few months, I was able to squeeze in the Quackcyclists’ Knoxville Fall Classic Double Century staff ride yesterday. (I’ll be volunteering at the official ride next week.) Read More
The 45th Annual Davis Double Century is the first double on the California Triple Crown series that I’ve now completed and the second big club-supported ride I’ve ridden in thus far. (The Grizzly Peak Century from several years ago was my maiden voyage in the realm of rides over 100 miles.) Endurance riding is still a new discipline for me as I began randonneuring last year, and I’m only now tackling events on the CTC calendar. I think most folks begin riding doubles before moving up to the longer distances, so I’m taking a backwards approach by finishing them the other way around!
