I especially love his last point, about the original reason for the 2nd amendment. And I would add to it that the American government is already tyrannical in a lot of ways, and trampling all over the constitution, but I haven't seen any wide-spread movement by the 2nd amendment crowd for armed revolt.

THE FINAL FRONTIER
So here we are. The LAST day. Should be noooo problem. Day 4 had the lowest mileage of the ride (150 miles), was pancake flat and maybe we'd even get some tailwinds for a change. Then again, this was supposed to be an “easier” 1200k and we were certainly disabused of that notion very quickly on ...

Here's Day 2!
So at the end of Day One, we arrived at Jupiter just before 12:25AM and our rando sextet was really looking forward to getting some precious off the bike time. I'm no RAAM type, so a shower, fresh change of kit and couple hours' of sleep is all I need to feel the magical powers of quick recovery ...

I qualified for Paris-Brest-Paris this weekend -- WOOHOO!
SPOILER ALERT: I'm now officially qualified for the 18th Edition of Paris-Brest-Paris! I'll be packing my bags for France in August in the hopes of becoming an ancienne. This past weekend, the SLO Randonneurs hosted the final event of their inaugural ACP series: the Pinnacles Travel 600k.

L'Eroica California was AWESOME
The inaugural L'Eroica California kicked off this weekend and was an amazing experience. Jason and I chose the medium route (69 miles with over 5300 ft. of climbing), as we have some big randonneuring rides coming up and wanted to save some energy in our legs. Plus my easiest gear on my ...

Many of you know about my quest for a vintage, period-correct bike that I could ride for L'Eroica down in SLO. Sadly, the seller in Minneapolis was asking too much for the chrome Schwinn Paramount I had my eye on (I noticed she's since dropped the price considerably, but it's still above what I wanted to spend.)
Then this beautiful Pinarello popped up on eBay! It's an '85 Record frame painted in a "Metal Rose" color with chrome details (chain stays, dropouts, fork crown) that was built up by a shop in the South Bay. She came equipped with a full Campy Super Record group, Cinelli bars and stem and Mavic rims, so in a way, she's coming back home! (Apparently the owner rode her in a few local centuries and the Death Ride.) Thanks to Shawn for going through the pain and suffering of wrapping the bars "harlequin style" (another item that's been sitting on my bucket list for a long time), to Pudu for giving it a tune-up and to Evan for selling me a lovely TA Specialties water bottle cage and pump holder (just need to find a pump...)
“My vintage-Italian-period-correct-bicycle dreams have come true! Meet my new-to-me #Pinarello, which I'll be riding in the upcoming #leroica down in SLO.…”

Had so much fun at this year's inaugural L'Eroica California ride! Check out this video from GiroSportDesign -- you can see me "crushing" it at 1:24. ;)
L’Eroica is an event that celebrates the romance of cycling’s past

Day 3!
Previously, on The Californians: When we last saw our frotchy heroine, she'd just been given a key to her own hotel room after Day 2's 184-mile ride. Whooooooooweee! So guess who got 5.5 hours of blissful, dead-to-the-world sleep? This lucky gal! I felt totally rejuvenated and was rarin' to take ...

Finished my first 1200k this weekend, yee haw!
1200 kilometers, or roughly 746 miles, is the distance of the most heralded event for randonneurs: Paris-Brest-Paris. If you're able to finish a full series, you just might aspire to complete this historic ride someday. When I first began riding brevets back in 2013, I had no notion or desire, ...

And here's photos from Day 1 of L'Eroica California! 
I was in vintage bicycle heaven at the first annual L'Eroica California this past weekend in Paso Robles. Ever since I first heard of this event several years ago, I've been entranced by the romantic notion of paying homage to the past through this cycling celebration. It's like the Renaissance ...

Phew, a jam-packed weekend of fun!
Phew, it was a jam-packed weekend of fun! First, a big posse of us (Frankie, Jason, Kat, Paul, TBO, Wilson and myself) rode from Lafayette up Diablo; then TBO & I headed to Del Valle for an awesome camping trip organized by fellow rando Brad; then Ann, Denise and Jason met me on Sunday morning ...

Loved the ride to the junction.  And so glad we didn't go on to Mt. Ham!

I had low expectations for my 400k down in SLO since I was recovering from the flu -- but I think it was the best brevet I've ridden so far!   
This year, as I chose the brevets I needed to qualify for this year's Paris-Brest-Paris, I mixed up my itinerary again and considered events outside of San Francisco and Davis. Fortunately, the San Luis Obispo Randonneurs, a new club led by the human dynamo Vickie Backman, was offering a full ...

+Dave Bartel Totally understand; I'm being really frugal these days since I have several bike trips planned for the future. But we'll be waiting for you whenever you can come out here! Send me a link for your fundraising campaign, too.
