TBO, Daniel and myself took a nice jaunt down the Peninsula today with this permanent; I chose this route as I wanted to check out the new Devil’s Slide multi-use path and it didn’t disappoint — the views are stunning!
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.
The “Hana Hiatus 200k” was no vacation from challenges; it was filled with extreme heat, climbs and rutted roads within 126 miles. Definitely one of the hardest rides I’ve ever done, hands down.
