Trisha wrote: Training in RPV. Climbing The Switchbacks, The 7 C’s, Silver Spur, and any other hill that gets in my way! 

Christina wrote: I rode the 38 mile loop today.  I have been following the John Howard training plan for the last 16 weeks!  It keeps me dedicated and focused!  I really appreciate the suggested mileage because this will be my first century.  Hill repeats on twin oaks valley road to san elijo has been my main training hill, but I have done Mt. Soledad and the purple monster throughout the last few months.  I’m ready! Bring it!

Eric wrote:  Training Ride – I’m doing the 37-mile course so today I rode the first 9 miles of that route since it has a fair amount of hills. After that I looped back the opposite direction, until I hit 101, rode up to the Encinitas sign, doubled back south along the 101 to Del Mar, then back to the starting point at the college parking lot (and therefore hitting the last few miles of the 37 mile course). I’m just getting back into the saddle after two years off (and 40 lbs on) so this should be the right amount of challenge for me as I regain my fitness (and ditch that 40lbs!).

Craig shared his ride:  Last century ride before San Diego.
