My adventures on completing my first 1000k at the Taste of Carolina event!
Denise, TBO and I rolled out from Cole Valley to brave the hectic weekend crowds of Marin to ride Jesse’s beautiful route that spans Muir Woods, Stinson Beach, Bolinas-Fairfax Road and Alpine Dam.
This 308km ride starts at the Kirkwood Ski Resort near Lake Tahoe and ends at the North Concord / Martinez BART station; it’s worth it for the beautiful views along the Mormon Emigrant Trail.
This was a double-permanent weekend for me; first up was a fun populaire, the 105k Petaluma Peddler, and then the 200k Dumbarton Hamilton Roundabout.
After last weekend’s disappointing DNF, I just wanted to do a fast and flat permanent that would help restore my spirits; Baylands 101, a 101k ride down in the South Bay, was just what I needed.
