I’ve been wearing a big ol’ pair of lazy pants since PBP, and so all of my weekend rides have been no longer than 65 miles. But since I do love these randonneur team events (they’re my favorite type of brevet!), I was glad to join Team Delta Dawdlers for a mellow jaunt from Alameda to Davis.
An evening start, drunken road rage, beautiful scenery and sleep deprivation — this challenging 600k had it all!
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.
My ongoing quest to finish the Davis Bike Club’s brevet series continued this weekend by riding their Lake Sonoma 400k.
The Davis Bike Club’s 300k was my inaugural ride with this group — and my longest ride for this year’s training season to date. I’d been riding a ton of 200k brevets and permanents in preparation for the longer events looming before me on the calendar. With all of those miles in my legs, I felt ready to tackle this 186-mile out-and-back ride which starts in Davis and heads northwest to Cobb Mountain, the turnaround point.
