This was awesome experience, one of the best rides I've ever done. It started at the Marin Civic Center at 5:00 am with a mass start of about 300 riders. The weather was nearly perfect for this type of ride and the support at the rest stops was excellent. The course was very challenging, with many steep climbs, including Coleman valley. The scenery at the top of Bay Hill and Coleman Valley Road made the effort worth it. Riding along Lucas Valley Road under a full moon in the cool night air toward the finish, I felt lucky to still be doing this kind of ride.
Just a note to say "congratulations and great job!".
Congratulations on finishing. I'm not even dreaming of doing a double century at this stage.
