Vacaville Bike Ride Fall 2007

Here I am having a great time on a beautiful fall day in Vacaville. I got to stretch out on the new bike and spin for approximately 40 miles.

Check me out at the Indoor Cycling Championships

I was invited to the Asian indoor Cycling championships as a special guest.

You can see my interview around the 1:50 mark.

Bike Gears -- "I got Greeked!"

I was watching "A Scanner Darkly" and this scene cracked me up. Definitely a bike-nerd moment. The rest may find it banal I'm sure.

Rosarito Ensenada 50 Mile Fun Ride

So we took a trip to Mexico for the semi-annual 50 mile Rosarito to Ensenada Bike Ride.

The giant Mexican Flag at the end of the ride (Finish Line Fiesta)

This was a nicely organized ride that takes place approximately 30 miles south of the San Diego/Mexico border in Rosarito.

It was a fairly well organized ride and the tips we received from the veterans were very useful. It was somewhat intimidating to say the least when we pulled up to the starting line only to see 6,000 riders ahead of us. Basically since this is a fun ride and not a race, there is a wide spread in rider experience. The first 20 miles is a hazard course -- you need to be constantly vigilant of all of the people weaving in and out. Around the 25 mile point, there is "El Tigre" that starts to thin out the pack as you go ascend 800 feet on a nice 7% grade. Andrea (the wifey) and I both made it up without walking, which was our primary objective. What they fail to mention are the 2 climbs after this one that are no walk in the park either. We finished the course in three hours and fifteen minutes.
