It's Time For
Come! Make PARTY in the Woods!
Mt Laguna, CA
(east and up from San Diego)
Horse Heaven Group Campground
Friday, May 24: come up and set up. Dial in tire pressures. Eat smores. Drink whiskey.
Saturday, May 25: BadDuro! wake up and blow up. It's time to ride! and party! then party more!
Sunday, May 26: two days to recover - because Monday is Memorial Day!
The final route will be shared shortly before we roll, but it's about 32miles with 3k of climbing.
Pace is cordial. That is, until it's time to tackle one of the timed segments.
Then it's time to SMASH
Your cumulative time on these segments is what matters. With ample time to recover between segments, you'll be able to reconnoiter with your buddies and refresh the legs before dropping the hammer on the next segment.
Expect twisting singletrack, fireroad climbs, road TT, and/or tweaking mad airs off molehills in meadows.
The best bike will be a gravel bike with beefy tires and low PSI.
Plenty of coffee - duh.
Kegs of Rouleur Beer.
Homemade artisinal cocktails made by: yo'self.
Bonfires, air guitar, guitar guitars (?), and bacon cooked under the stars.
Get a BadSea PartyTime Cup. This capable vessel is for holding all of your libations - black coffee, flat whites, can o' beer, draft beer, draught beer, mint julips, and water. It's double-wall insulated which means it keeps your beverages thermoregulated at ideal temps (hot OR cold), and it's got a lid so you're less likely to spill that strawberry daiquiri on your lap while you're driving to work, you rush hour renegade, you.
BYOB, but we've got your cup.
Your presence is present enough.
But we'll have some awards for the hardiest of partiers, the quickest of climbers, and the speediest of singetrackers provided by some of our friends:
Prizes and pride will only be given out to riders on Drop-Bar Bikes.
BadSea Coffee - duh, we're putting this thing on so you better believe you can win some pretty good coffee
