Introduction

I am always looking for new routes as I know Yolo County TOO well and am awfully tired of the flat winds there. I like hills and am training for triathlons this year. I am usually at a 14-16 mph pace over 40-60 miles and like to work (breathe hard).

Where did you hear about us?

Some other meetup group

What rides would you like to see on the calendar?

The Great Western Bike Rally in May. I have gone the last few years and it is a lot of fun. It is 4 days and has several rides including an awesome Century ride. It is in Paso Robles.

What goals are you setting for yourself, if any?

Iwould like to do my first full Century this year. I have several Metrics planned and so I would like to complete them.

What level biker are you?

Advanced Beginner

    hey robin, we're a low-key group, and our first purpose is to encourage open water swimming. the saturday swim affords several routes. one swimmer will probably swim long, and i'm happy to swim along the shore nearby for as long as you want to try it. your first object will probably be just getting used to the cold, getting calm and getting your breathing settled, and putting your face in the water. even if that's for 5-10 minutes, that's a good start. do you have a wetsuit?

    welcome to the saturday swim. just a head's up that the water is 45f. i recommend eating something hot like oatmeal and sipping a hot drink on the way over to the lake, and having something hot to drink afterward, as well as layers of dry clothes to put on. silicone or rubber flanged earplugs, next to the eyedrops in most grocery stores, help keep you warm and prevent dizziness. and a couple of caps would help. lemme know any questions. thanks. shawn
