We are one day shy of being 7 weeks away from our starting line in Oceanside, CA.
Its crazy how time flies.
About 3 weeks ago, your RAAM cyclists from TeamFARA participated in a metric century, Party To Pardee, riding approximately 63 miles. All four of us were able to ride in this event, along with John's wife Stephanie, her Dad, stepmom, and another friend of the team, Brandon. The ride was challenging and fun for all of us (most parts anyway), and we all finished strong! The weather was chilly and the sun didn't show its face at all. Thankfully we didn't have rain! The course was very hilly, with approximately 4,000 vertical feet of climbing.
