i want to ride my bicycle

the big day is almost here. while i've logged over 1000 miles on my new bike, i've never pushed her to a full century (100 miles). on saturday i'll be riding in the solvang century, and just in case you haven't heard, i'm riding with a purpose.

Have a wonderful time Ben. Sounds like a great cause. Hope there is a massage waiting for you at the end. Is this a hilly course? Did you add mud guards to your bike????

Good riding, bw!
btw, which one of these is yours & how much was it again??

Antjas - thanks for the support! Apparently there are about 5000 feet of hill climbing over the whole course. Should be fun!

Cafe - mine is the pretty gold one with the blue water bottles and fenders. we haven't had any rain in a while, so she isn't wearing her fenders - and I'm going to choose not to mention how much I paid, but it is more than what I have raised thus far to support bicycle programs in Africa... sad.
