Black Forest 300k Checkout

A moist checkout ride of the Black Forest 300k route for our hardy volunteers - Steve, Michelle, Catherine, and John - two of whom had just completed the Kersey Kick 200k the day before and cleaned their bikes from the rain that came with it. It was a day of more sun, but more rain, and definitely more worms on the pavement!

A cool pre-dawn passage of the Ken Caryl hogback was a treat.Things brightened up nicely for a while, as in these sunny moments climbing towards Larkspur in the morning. Everything is verdant green (because of all that rainfall and snow!):
The Black Forest General Store (a control) has just moved down the block to a deluxe new setting. We were keen to check it out, and were very pleased with the facilities and friendly smiles. But no hot dogs! (This should be rectified by the time you do the 300k.)

When rain did move in on the way back from Black Forest, a shower cap came in handy. Here's wishing the 300k riders a sunny ride with snacks as desired!
