This is August 4th - 100 miles from Robie Park east of Squaw Valley down the Sierras to Auburn, CA.
“Boo is in great shape. Me? Well, not so much so. He’s the equivalent of a 20-25 yr old man while I haven’t seen 20 in darn near a half century. If he doesn’t exercise for a couple of weeks, it’s no big deal. If I don’t ride for a couple of days, I lose enough conditioning that I can really feel it. Although I think we could do well, the truth is that the completion rate runs around 50% of all starters and the rate is LOT lower for first timers like me. Sobering.”
