Selene and Patrick have been away riding. For Selene, last weekend was the nearly annual Bicycling Magazine Fall Classic. Unfortunately, even in organized rides, things don’t always go according to plan. Or the advertising. So what do you do when the aid stations don’t provide enough aid?
Patrick spent eight days riding down the coast of California with the Arthritis Foundation in the California Coast Classic—which would be why we missed recording last week. (It’s all his fault.) He reports that it was a ride unlike any he’s ever attended before. And as beautiful as it is to ride down the California Coast, especially through Big Sur, the scenery isn’t what made the ride so great.
