2003 June 29: Giro di Peninsula

This was an organized ride (not race).

It was a basic century featuring a lot of familiar terrain. Nice, pleasant. Lauren and I rode this on the tandem; we were accompanied by Misha and Cedric (the first century for either of them! And Cedric's first real ride on a road bike, too!).

Laura and Alysia did this ride, too. We saw them a few times at rest stops, but then our group started taking it easy after a while.

Riding the tandem down 84 towards the ocean was awesome! It was incredible about picking up speed, but it felt really stable and smooth, too. We also had a great pull a bit later on on the flats-- there was a stiff headwind, and you can't beat that for making a tandem seem fast! We pulled a very grateful singleton along in our wake for a while there, until we got to the next rest stop.

And I reckon that's about all I have to say about that.
