Enjoy the start to the season!

I DNF’d my first populaire a few weeks ago, but did finish my first 200k last weekend. Not bad considering my longest ride this year prior to that was only 35 miles.

I’m currently putting in some miles to see if I’m ready for our 300k in another few weeks. Just back from a tough 50 miles; more climbs than expected, and some ‘fun’ headwinds.

So glad that there’s a (new) local rando club here.

Great stuff!

We’re having our San Francisco Populaire next weekend as well.

Hope you have good weather and a good time. Wish us the same!

@Vik – I went with the ride of comfort, the velomobile. I know that at moderate riding its actually slower than my lowracer (about 1mph), but its so much nicer for long rides. Full and easy access to everything, just sitting in bags beside me; not to mention the full suspension for the rough roads. However, the 75 pound empty weight is a pain on the hills.

It will probably get used again for the 300k. I’d like to get the lowracer out for some long rides though. I have a tailbox for it, so carrying enough shouldn’t be a problem.
