2005 September 17: Auburn Century

I did this ride with my college friend Jason and a posse of his cycling buddies. It was a long but pleasant day that I'll recap here in a big hurry because it's been a while since the actual ride occurred.

It took us a while to actually get going on the ride because some of our posse took a wrong turn and rode halfway in to Tahoe (from Sacramento) instead of going to Auburn. By the time we started cycling, there was plenty of light, and things had warmed up enough that I decided not to take a jacket on the ride.

I was all set to get dropped, because I had my PowerCranks on my Google bike, but I hadn't had a chance to put a lot of miles on them. Until you really get used to them, they make riding tough!

We mostly stuck together until I couldn't take it any more, perhaps 30 or 40 miles into the ride. After that, I rode on my own. Beautiful scenery, good grub, all that.

...and afterwards, we all went for an excellent dinner at the house of Royce, one of Jason's buddies.
