Last Saturday I rode one of the hardest bike rides I have ever been on. The Holstein 100! It started in Tomales, CA and ran down to Petaluma, up Tomales Bay, in to Bodega Bay, and then back down to Tomales.
The ride was also a memorial ride for the recently crashed CG-6017. 3 Coasties were killed in this accident. “We have to go out, but we don’t have to come back!” Thank you to all of my Coast Guard Brother’s and Sisters for your sacrifice!
It truly tested me on so many levels. 5 hours and 11 minutes in the saddle! Nearly 5000 feet of climbing. You know what though, I would do it all over again in a minute!
Next time out, I’ve got to do it faster!
