I can understand your point - everybody needs to do the ride they want to, I'm just looking for someone to go with - I did not train any differantly for the double and was not sure how I would do - it simply became - " I can go 30 miles" - what I'm saying is that it becomes mind over matter more than anything -

I , for one have already set goals for the rides I have done before and, am looking for harder rides all the time - not to say, I don't like a good flat ride now and again but, there is something to be said about challenging yourself.

best example I can put forth is last week's ride -
I wanted to be to the top by 2:30 PM - an hour before the cut off - - hit 2:36 PM
I wanted a total rolling time of 9 hours - hit 9:00:18
I already want to take AT LEAST 30 minutes off of both those next year

No I didnt say that...
I do a century, then next time try to cut time off of it...I try to challenge myself....there are different ways to do that...

BTW...mark may want to do the LA wheelman Grand tour DM!

I'll be starting a bit before 8 on the metric. Since the courses are the same at times, perhaps we'll meet up. I'll likely be in a CVC jersey.

I heard from a good source SoCal RiderS may be in the area.
