Cruising Conejo

Monday,  05/11/15  10:00 AM

Last Saturday I rode the Cruising the Conejo century, a nice little 104 mile jaunt around the neighborhood, featuring 6,000 feet of climbing.  I managed to finish in a respectable 6 hours, with 5:46 riding time; my best century time in five years.  Yay, me.  It was even (gasp!) fun.

Pictures:


the route ... 104 miles 6,000 feet, a nice ride along the ocean, and spelunking around the hills


festival area; quiet before the start, raucous later


assembling to start


Rockstore! - my favorite climb was part of this ride (20:19 if you must know)


descending Encinal Canyon to the ocean


cruising PCH ... could have used a bit more sun, though


Mugu Rock - and the sun pokes through


USMC Missle Park


the finish!  yay

This marked my third century in three weeks.  Next Saturday I'll be riding the l'Etape California, a chance to ride the same stage 7 course as the pros competiting in the Amgen Tour of California, including the final climb to the finish at Mount Baldy.  Yippee.
