Sun, May 13

Today's ride was more or less a repeat of last Sunday's tour. After flying down Pierce Rd in Saratoga, I turned south this time towards Saratoga Historic Downtown, and then onto Highway 9 West which meets Pierce Rd again at its southern end. On the next loop, I went up the steep hill off Highway 9 to Hakone Gardens, where parts of "Memoirs of a Geisha" were filmed. After a third fly-down on Pierce Rd and a stop at Togos in Saratoga, I headed back. Struggling a bit on the final few miles on Canada Rd, I was passed by a female cyclist who was just about to complete a 105-mile ride. We hung on to each other to make the final couple of miles. Total mileage today: 75. Next Sunday is the moment of truth: the Monticello Century.

2007 riding stats: #of rides: 32, annual mileage: 1171, pace: 3213
