California Cogal, Day 2

California Cogal, Day 2

by / / 4 posts

We head over the hills we climbed yesterday for 111 rolling km’s through Santa Barbara’s incomparable wine country, including the last few km of the ToC Solvang TT (sadly not in the parcours for 2012). Rollout is 9-0-V again, from the Bulldog Café in Solvang. Lunch and beverages after at Trattoria Grappolo in Santa Ynez.

    If I recall correctly, this ride never happened due to a confluence of events. Day 1 of the California Cogal happened, but Day 2 was scratched.

    I’ll be in Santa Maria the first week of August, and if I can get a kitchen pass from my VMH, I’d love to give this ride a shot. Interested? Solvang looks to be about halfway between SM and SB.

    I’m usually up for a valley ride, and this in one of the best. August can be a tad warm, but an early start takes care of that. Let me know when your dates firm up.

    Absolutely will do.

    The earlier the start the better, in my opinion.

    Living in Houston, I’m used to warm – it’s over 30C here this week – but the addition of inclines is something I’m not used to.

    Looks like the dates are firming up. August 2-4 are dates I could get out for a metric century. My preference is to try for the 3rd.
