Santa Lucia Preserve Ride

A special thank you to NPS Foundation President, Bill Warner, for organizing last Saturday’s ride in the Santa Lucia Preserve.  We couldn’t have asked for a better day to ride 40 miles with over 4,000 feet of climbing.  The reward for all that work was a view that stretched for miles, from Santa Cruz to Big Sur and everything in between.

A ride like this is sure to expose even the smallest weaknesses in a bike.  We had two tire issues that sent a couple people back to the start a little early but safety has to come first when you’re descending at 45+ mph.  Also, thank you to Anne Warner for providing us with a delicious post-ride lunch.
