An Unsupported Century: Fairfield to Middletown and back. Start at the Solano Community college, take Suisun Valley Rd to Highway 121, Highway 128, Knoxville Rd, Pope Canyon Rd, and Pope Valley Rd to Middletown. Return Butts Canyon, Pope Valley Rd, Lower Chiles Valley Rd, Highway 128, Highway 121, Wooden Valley Rd. A brisk pace will be needed to get back before dark. For strong riders who like Hendrix' 'Are Your Experienced' only.
Leave Solano Community College on Suisun Valley Rd north of I80 at 8AM sharp.
Some great Hubcap Ranch shots by Ward. (above) Christine and (below) Dave--who needs to stop and get some Spinergy Rims on his ride.
Christine getting very aero in order to draft off of Dave--nearing Middletown.
Some highlights of 2009:
- Jack and I motoring on Devil Mountain Double toward Sunol during twilight when Ward, coming back from the Terra Bella, drives by and takes photos.
- Riding past the last rest stop on the Death Ride and seeing Christine looking like she is enjoying life at the rest stop-knowing she’ll finish the ride.
- Dave looking like a French Professor wearing a shower cap and rain jacket backwards when it was pouring on Santa Rosa Wine Country Century. Oh yeah, scrambling and achieving the Triple Crown after his recumbent was stolen.
- Ward always doing our training rides (eg. Sierra Road 2x, Mines Road-Mt. Hamilton-Sierra Road loop) no matter how insane, always taking photos.
Where do you put a chrome bike rack on this car?
