Golden Gate Tri Club held a training weekend down at Lake San Antonio the other weekend. Sat was sunny and windy, and we braved the waters of the lake and the hills of the bike ride. Great BBQ on Sat night, lots of beer, and a good run Sunday AM to round out the weekend. Looking forward to the race in just a few weeks!
Saturday – 60 miles – all hill. That’s the Alpine Dam loop. Or, as you climb up to Alpine Dam, then up again, then up over the 7 sisters of not so rolling hills, all you can say is “Damn! when will this be done!”
I love CK dearly, but a tri bike is definitely not the right type of bike for this ride. Thankfully, the scenery is just right to quiet my screaming legs. The climb through the woods was amazing, and the view of Stinson Beach – see for yourself!
Thanks to my new GGTC teammate Tracy for showing me the route! It was a great way to spend a Saturday morning. I think I earned all the bacon at my cooking class on Saturday night.
I’m off to Lake San Antonio this coming weekend for Wildflower training. Let’s hope the hills are a little easier there.
