    Wow! How was traffic? How did you manage water/food?

    Traffic wasn't too bad for the most part. I brought a camelback with 3l of water and a bunch of energy bars and stopped at a subway and a gas station.

    Sounds like you had an extra tire along, too -- good call! Gotta remember to recruit some sag support before attempting anything near this epic myself.

    Unbelievable! Pretty much the last thing I'd want to do the day after the death ride!

    You are going to make a Tahoma to Palo Alto segment so that you can have a guaranteed KOM for life, right? ;)

    Epic!  When I passed you between Jackson and Clements my car claimed it was already 30 degrees outside.

    Epic is an understatement. Great, if deranged, achievement, particularly the day after DR.

    @Emma dunno, I guess I could do a 400k one! @Greg that would have the advantage of a tailwind through altamont pass

    I can't imagine how demoralizing any headwind must have been! Truly nuts!

    finish over the back side of Mt Hamilton or GTFO. Just kidding, very nice. I've always wanted to do this, though headed to SF I would have taken Mormon Emigrant and on to Sacto. Mormon Emigrant is a great road.

    Well done! I saw you on our drive home on 89. Wondered if it was someone returning from the Death Ride. Never imagined they'd be returning to the Bay Area!
