Grasshopper Adventure Ride starting and ending in Occidental. Sign in and donate and you get a route card for 80miles torture. To then get demolished by the wind, course, wrong turns, and Levi. I Hung on the first few climbs then on Highway 1 there was a crazy tail wind and I got popped off then took a wrong turn. Caught on with a big group then that group got smaller and smaller. Rotating echelon was the name of the game for the next few hours. Until the last climb up “Joy Rd” then I was cooked. Nate Freed ended getting a flat around 10 miles in then leapfrog time trialling from group to group for 4hours. John Teeter was crushing it with Levi then got pop from the breakaway then called it a day.
