Kris, Martha (her family), Marty and James all arrived in Davis on Friday afternoon and checked into our respective hotels. It was warm, slightly breezy. The hotel was nice but Kris and my window was right on the street at “D” and Third. Very busy with a frat house around the corner. This is not so great for a 3 am wake-up call! Thank goodness for Advil PM and ear plugs!
We all went to register for the ride. I hadn’t really wrapped my head around 200 miles. The farthest I had ridden before was 125 at the Tierra Bella 200k and the Wine Country 200k. So, I knew this would be difficult. However, when I arrived at registration, I realized that we not only rode to and around part of Lake Berryessa (which I already knew) but that we ALSO would be riding to Clear Lake! (Lower Lake specifically). “Wow!”, thought…I don’t even like driving that far! What did I get myself into???!!!
