A Perfect Day for a Century Ride

Update: See the Motionbased Track Here.

MG and I got out with Crista and Chuck on Sunday for her “Over the Hill With Dr. Disc” century ride from Frederick, Md. We were joined by Paul D., Mike G., Natalie and Keith K. This ride traveled over rolling hills to Union Bridge, Taneytown, and Libertytown. Highs in the 80s, low humidity, and sunny skies made this a great day to ride. The group was the best part. We were few in number but high in spirit.

Notably, this was Mike’s final ride with us before heading to San Diego for his coast-to-coast Southern PAC tour. The tour starts this Saturday and arrives in Savannah, Ga. on Oct. 3rd. Go Mike!

As usual on Crista centuries, the bikes ran the gamut from high-tech — Natalie’s boron carbide Griffen tri-bike — to titanium to Rivendell lugged steel. Here are the bikes on this ride:
