2009 Pizza Century
Every year, Tim Woudenberg and Phil Plath gather the masses (okay, about 20 of us) together in Half Moon Bay for a 94 mile ride down to Santa Cruz and back, with a stop at Upper Crust Pizza on the north end of Santa Cruz.
It's a long drive to go ride 94 miles, but is great meeting up with friends that I get to see only a few times a year. Tim has ridden on a few of the Bent Up Cycles RAAM teams over the years, and I am looking forward to sponsoring his solo effort this year.
This year's ride was also the official "return to cycling" for David, who is just returning from 8 months of chemotherapy and radiation treatments. Welcome back David!
As usual, I forgot my camera, but Bill Bushnell took some great pictures and posted them here.
I only did half the ride. It was cold and drizzly, and chatting with Lee Mitchell about our upcoming RAAM seemed like more fun than being cold and wet!
Thanks to Tim and Phil for hosting the ride...it was great seeing you all again!
