Started tiring badly towards the end, but could probably have done another five loop-de-loops of the Portola Loop if fed enough GU. In general, I feel pretty good about the whole thing – I managed a respectable distance with considerably more climbing than on the Davis Double Century, in a short enough time that I think I might be up for the DDC. Right now I’m giving myself a 2/3 chance of completing every mile.
Oh, and the pastries at Fleur de Cocoa really ARE fantastic. I started out my tour de Peninsula with a trip to Los Gatos and back (60 miles, 4.5 hours), to warm up with a vanilla latte and a chocolate-caramel-banana mousse cake. Yum!
