    Just finished this ride on Saturday. I did the metric century (62 miles), and I'd definitely recommend it. Beautiful ride, really well-supported, challenging in some areas, forgiving in others, loved it. Hilly, including one very very steep hill around the middle. Fun descents (training for this helped me love downhills!) and great flats. Redwoods and ocean views. Luckily wasn't too hot, either.

    Note, my teammates who did the 100-miler said that, hands-down, it was the hardest ride they've ever done. King Ridge and its friends are pretty punishing, and there were a lot of injuries from people taking the descents too fast. Some folks went so fast their tires blew out. So there ya go.

    Congratulations. I've seen comments about it on twitter from Levi and his friends. It sounds like a beautiful ride.

    I hope the injuries were not too serious.

    Glad you had a good ride! I was wondering about it - I responded to one of your earlier posts on it.

    Go team!
