Solana Beach Century by wildwes49

September 19, 2011

Saturday, 17 September 2011:  This is the day of SCOR’s Annual Century Bicycle Ride from Fullerton AMTRAK Station to Solana Beach, CA.   I volunteered to ride sweep for the club.  My job was to stay with the last riders to make sure that no one had a problem on the way to the finish line.  There were a total of 15 riders on today’s ride.  In the first picture are three of the riders that I rode with for most of the ride.  In front is Ann Marie, and behind her are Denise and her husband, Richard.  It was a perfect day for a ride like this.  The weather was cool with a little mist for part of the ride, warming up a little as the day progressed.  Richard and I were the last ones to arrive at the hotel and had ridden about 90 miles.  He has never done a century ride before and decided he would like to do it on this ride.  We continued riding south for about 4 or 5 miles, then headed back towards the hotel.  We were still a little short of 100 miles so we continued north until I knew we would make 100 miles and then returned to the hotel.  We arrived back at the hotel with just a little over 100 miles.  In the next picture is Richard in the jacuzzi, biking outfit and all.  That evening he got a medal at the awards ceremony for completing his first century.  I also took a picture of the mileage on my bike computers to prove his accomplishment.  You can view the stats of today’s ride by clicking on the link below the pictures.
