I flew out to Southern California for the annual Mike Nosco Memorial ride. I’ve done the ride since the inception, so for the past 4 years. This year, once again, the proceeds of the ride are going to benefit Andreas Knickman, my ex-team mate from the Levi’s days, Roy Knickman’s child. If you’re anywhere near the Southern California area, you should come by tomorrow morning and do the ride. If you can’t attend, you can click the link below to donate to Andreas.
Lots of area pros attend. I hope to ride some with Wayne Stetina, from Shimano. He’s bringing me some new road and MTB shoes, which is a plus. It is a great ride, 80 miles with a gazillion (8000 feet) of climbing. I am heading up tonight to stay with my friend, Jimmy Mac, czar of Mountain Bike Action magazine. He lives in Somas, which is near the start in Newbury Park. I don’t get to see Mac anywhere nearly enough, so I’m looking forward to hanging with him and maybe going for a ride.
