So…where to ride on my first “longish” bike ride after the Sunshine 1200k? We left it up to fate and flipped a coin: and she said, “You will ride the Geysers today.”
Every summer, the San Francisco Randonneurs organize a super fun double brevet weekend that begins in San Francisco and heads north out to Cloverdale (riders have their choice of either a 300k or 200k route). After kicking back and relaxing over a catered dinner at the host hotel and tucking away several hours of sleep, folks stretch their tired legs and return to the city the following day on another 200k route. Last year I had done the Cloverdale to SF segment, so I thought I’d ride the other direction this time around and volunteer at the finish.
The slow march towards completing my first R-12 continued this weekend. San Francisco Randonneurs hosted a double-brevet weekend where riders rode from SF to Cloverdale (and chose from a 200 or 300k option.)
