Jamboree

sign stolen from
Church of the Sweet Ride


The 9th annual County Line Jamboree came and went. It was a beautiful day, and 70 plus people once again subjected themselves to the 40 miles of road
train tracks
and beach.


It feels more like 60. We're not sure how many people finished, but we did see some really tired folks dragging themselves to the Pajaro river. Which is sort of the point.
The beach is deceptively hard, by the time you reach the end of the 20 miles of track, you have this false sense that the beach will give you the break you so want, but it just gets harder! It all comes down the beach.

Jeff and Curtis finally found the perfect gear, and smoked nearly everyone.


Except for Smiling George Hope, who was the fastest man for the second year in a row!


Kathleen "Hard as Nails" Hannon was the fastest lady of the day.

Good times, see you all next time.

Nice. Looks like a fun way to spend an afternoon (and part of an evening, and possibly a little overnight)! :D

How'd folks on 'cross bikes fare compared to the fat-tired folk?

poorly......especially the ones riding fixed cross bikes.

happy on the road, sad on the tracks, indifferent on the beach
