This is not a random scattering of cyclists in a parking lot. What it is , or was could be called the start of the 125 mile Tour of California stage 3 ride. Somwnere between 40 and 50 riders started from the shop ( actually my neighbor Jeff Traugott's shop) and went up the coast to ride the best of the second half of stage II , only about 10,100 ft. clmbing and 125 miles of some of Nor-Cal's best coastal mountain roads. The ride for some of us ended with a climb up Bonny Doon rd. before dropping down back into Santa Cruz-all in all, nearly ten hours of fun and pain . Jeff says he will host it as an annual event. Me, I think one was quite enough. Next year I'll probably opt for the 90 mile version and skip the big climb at the end.......I'm so sore today I feel like I was in a bar fight the night before.
