I can not begin to describe to you the caliber of how insane this was.

I can’t begin to describe to you how accomplished I feel though.

We rode from Santa Barbara to San Diego; 227 miles. We took the train up to Santa Barbara the day before, woke up at 3:30AM, and were on the road by 4AM. We rode all along the amazing west coast until we got back to San Diego at about 10:30PM. Yep. About 18, almost 19 hours on a bike. We started with 7 riders and ended with 5. One we lost up in LA and the other blew his knee out in Laguna Hills. Crazily enough, there was only one flat on the entire ride!

You know, we did this ride on the Summer Solstice. We all deemed it the Suffer Solstice ride about 100 miles in to it. Never doing that again, but for the rest of my life, I’ll be able to say that I DID IT.

Feeling sooooo accomplished and sore.
