This year I was lucky enough to do it with my Dad and his good Eugene, OR friend Rob.
|My Dad, in front, and Rob, enjoying the first 10 miles|
|Cresting the first of three "sisters" or hills. Short but steep!|
We did the metric century through the beautiful redwoods, along the Eel River, and even added on a few miles to make it an even 70.
|Those two pieces of wire are NOT supposed to be there....|
|Dad, making it all better :-)|
This ride includes amazing scenery through my home town "area" which is awesome to show off to friends and family.
Equally as amazing was the fact that I got to share it with my own father. We had a great time riding fast, with me drafting off of him, (he is FAST!) through the tallest trees you could imagine.
We all made it home through a pretty good headwind to a great meal with the other finishers. It's always so satisfying to chow down and share stories with other riders about what they exactly went through during the day. It really is all an adventure. Looking forward to more great rides with my dear 'ol Dad, (and dear FAST Dad!)
