This morning was the annual California Triple Crown awards breakfast. The CTC recognizes the accomplishments of riders participating in a series of double century events held in California over the years. The CTC began tracking riders results in 1990 and has kept a tally of those results. Those riders who complete 50 of these events are eligible to be inducted into the CTC Hall of Fame. Initially there were only 4 double century rides in California which counted towards the Triple Crown. Now in 2018 there are 27 qualifying double centuries in the series!

AKA: The rolling hills from hell ride!

I try to ride the Portland Century each year if I can because it is generally a well supported and nicely designed route. It usually follows a different course each year and takes in new scenery around the Portland area. This years event held little similarity to previous years however!

Feeling pretty good at mile 150 along Cache Creek.

I’m back in Davis California after a couple of years away. This is the 49th annual Davis Double Century and coincidentally will be my 49th double century as well! After riding all of those doubles you would think that I would start to get good at it at some point! My only goal this year was to finish before dark but I wasn’t sure that it was in the cards.

20 plus riders rolled out at 9:00 am from the Cornelius Pass Roadhouse in Hillsboro on a loop to the west. It was 42 degrees at the start with a 90% chance of rain later in the day. Just how much later was the question! (more…)

This event, the first Double Century of the year is a ride that I have done 6 times previously. It has perhaps the most unpredictable weather of all the double centuries on the calendar due to it’s early in the year position on the schedule. What will it be like this year?

This ride was originally planned to be an out and back ride to Santa Barbara, but the route had to be changed due to flooding in the Montecito area. Many roads on the original route were still closed for clean up and some search and recovery efforts were still underway. Our hearts go out to those whose lost friends and loved ones during that tragedy. It seems unfair that while we are enjoying a lovely day on our bikes, others lives have been turned upside down.
