Last year we had a great day, cool start, lots of sunshine, a few hills, lots of feed stations, tons of people riding the same direction and it was awesome. This year, ditto! (see the blog post from last year)
Especially congratulations to Lana, Alexx and Melani, who overcame nerves and doubts to complete the C50 in style. First time doing and event of this type, with a few hills, flats, fast descents, you ladies conquered 50 miles. We were sure you guys would have a great time, and when I saw your smiles and heard your cheers at the finish line I as I finished the 100, I knew it!
I had a mix of elation, sufferring, cramped leg on the KOM hill, recovery, being passed, passing and flying along with a big tail wind trying to keep ahead of Ian, oh ya, and the joy of finishing, I'll be back!
BCCers: great job everybody, sorry if I missed anyone

New for this year the "hill climb". Up our finishing descent, Scenic Caves Rd, a 2.5 Km, average 10% with grades to 15%
Another one for the books and to keep the calendar open for next year.
