This was my 4th year riding the (Stagecoach Century), and as always, I was not disappointed. I rode the 50 (I was so relieved not to be riding a full century!). The weather was perfect (low 80s), and I felt awesome. This was a relief; I've been focusing more on running lately, not biking. It was a gorgeous day in the desert; I didn't need any more motivation than that! Plus, I got some awesome pics. This year's ride re-cap is a photo gallery (in sequence) of the ride.
Mountains surrounded us in the desert valley of Anza-Borrego.
Gorgeous view of the desert. Rocky!
Cacti pepper the hillsides like tiny skeletons.
