Skip's photo entry to win registration for the San Diego Century Bicycle Tour

OK, this photo entry for free registration to the 2011 San Diego Century just had to be shared.  Should Skip win?  Leave a comment and let us know what you think!

Skip sent us a few photos, and is hoping to win free registration for the 12/19 deadline.

“The first pictures I sent were taken at the TOP of the Three Witches climb (part of the San Diego Century route), just prior to my 70th birthday.  It was my first ride of more than 40 miles since 1952.  My daughter is also planning to ride the San Diego 2011 Century.  Last year she broke a chain on her first attempt and failed to finish.  This year I plan on giving her some support.

My bike is a “1994” Specialized Epic and I have decided it’s time to “shuck” retirement and hit the roads.  What better way to start than the San Diego Century. Looking forward to being there May 21.

I do have a couple of me on the mountain bike. I will include the one in the water.  The specialized was purchased for $500 and I added a new seat and handlebars.  It’s good to be old and still be on the road.  I am an X motorcycle survivor, a lot of time in Mexico on the Baja 1000, 500 and 250, so I’m not a novice on two wheels, just a novice in the propulsion department.  The orthopedic doctor suggested that I take up the bicycle for my two trick knees.  I’m sure he thought it should be a stationary one.  My daughter did finish  the Poway Century last year, and is training with the Trek group out in Escondido. We will be entering as a 2 rider team. This  will be, for me,  the first of many Century’s to come.  (I hope)”   – Skip

    To think that Skip is applying himself at 70 to do this race is fantastic. It is also wonderful for him to be supporting his daughter since her chain broke in the last race. I think that he should win his free registration.
