Petaluma Multi-Tempo Ride(s)
— Hunt Moore
We had a great bunch of club rides on Saturday, July 19…rides of all tempos out of Petaluma. One of the ride leaders, Hunt Moore, sent in this report…
Hello Good People,
We had a cast of thousands on Saturday, as SRCC came south to join PWCC for the John Mills Multi-Level ride, in Petaluma.
This wasn't a CG crowd, either--real live cyclists, little cats A, B, C & D.
Scot Castle & I led the C group. Liz, the high priestess of the event, gave the benediction in the church parking lot, and we were off.
Pretty fast start heading out to Nicasio.
Hmm, wonder why? Mein Gott, is that Georg up front? Thought it was Tony Martin, ha!
Stop to gather forces in Nicasio. The bar looks tempting. Oh, it's only 9:30. Time to move on, with this strong group.
It felt good to hold off the D riders until Pt. Reyes, where Marc & Micheal Barnes arrived. Miguel, cool.
Back Pt. Reyes-Petaluma Rd., combined C/ D flotilla, where on the climb right beyond the Nicasio turn-off, we had the usual selection.
Hicks Valley, Wilson Hill, with visions of a nice church lunch pulsating in my brain.
In by noon, from an 8:30am start.
Thanks to all the riders who showed up.
Thanks to all the new faces, who I believe were impressed with our little clubs. Some really hard core speed burners.
Thanks to Scot, for creating our route, and then having to endure a bummer of a mechanical and having to ride back from Pt. Reyes solo.
Thanks to the great pot-luck providers, who created an endless nirvana of salads, some so exotic that I didn't know what the hell I was eating. Yum!
Thanks to Richard Burger, for that kick ass Texas cornbread. I mean I love that.
Thanks to Matt Muldoon, for the great support he offered on the PWCC end.
Thanks to Bridgette and Ramona for their guidance, tea & sympathy.
The volunteers in the kitchen & the folks who set up stayed to break down.
And to John & Patty Mills for getting it all together, and of course, Liz, who made me write this report.
No just kidding, it's all good. Thank you, Liz!
