      Yesterday was California Triathlon’s first ever Epic Ride in San Francisco, and if I have any say in it, it won’t be our last. The fact that I don’t have any say in it shouldn’t detract from a magical ride in a beautiful city. One minute you’re riding along the waterfront, then you make a right turn and you’re climbing up a 20% gradient, then back through a park on a flat road. We rode around the Presidio, across the Golden Gate Bridge (lengthwise; width wise would have been challenging, but not as much fun), through Sausalito, Marin City, Mill Valley, and Tiburon.

      Special thanks to Sara, who designed the original route, and Jonathan, who added the Marin County loop and provided SAG. Also thanks to Michael, who provided photography. Major props to Anna and Megan, who represented San Francisco (even though Megan just moved there from LA), as well as Marek, Violetta, and Gregory, who came up from SoCal. They made the drive to make the ride.

      Next up is June 9th in San Diego. We have a lovely 60 mile ride around one of the most beautiful cities in the country. Sign up early and often. Or late and once. It doesn’t really matter. It’s the “sign up” part that counts.

      Coming up on July 21, only two and a half weeks after our Mount Baldy ride, we’ve scheduled another Northern California ride — Lake Tahoe Treat. Who wouldn’t want to ride around beautiful Lake Tahoe? Apparently, all but six of you. That’ll teach you to assume a question is rhetorical. So here’s what we’re going to do. We’re going to take our Angels & Demons ride and turn it on its head. May I present to you:

      Demons & Angels

      We leave from the Anaheim Amtrak station, only this time we drop our bikes off, board the train, and take it to Solana Beach, where we pick up our bikes and ride north through Oceanside, Camp Pendleton, Laguna, and back to Anaheim, where our cars are waiting to hold our bikes while we slip into JT Schmid’s for food and some well-earned libations.

      More details to come, but save the date. It’s going to be a great one.
