Gabe and I rode/wrote the new route this weekend and it’s gonna be a hoot. We’re gonna use the same casual route as in past years (straightfoward coastal with Planet of the Apes, or y’all can choose the tunnel or the newly opened Devil’s Slide multi-use path), for a total of about 55 miles. The race route this year is similar as last year, but with a bit more climbing. All in all it’s about 75 miles with about 7,000 feet of climbing. It’s a hard fucking race. Don’t be a muppet and race it unless you’re a very strong rider.
Q: What kind of bicycle should I ride?
A: A cross bike would be good. Whatever you’re comfortable on would be best.
Below are the bikes that Gabe and I rode the route on and they both worked
