6535 Memorial Bike Ride

RSS

The final stats

We finished the ride on Friday the 19th at roughly 4 p.m. It was an amazing experience for everyone involved. We had a total of 12 riders and three support crew. The weather could not have been better for the entire trip. We had a few flats, went through a couple spare tires, and had a rear derailleur fall off. We rode for a total of 3790 miles, spent 230 hours in the saddle, climbed 178,046 feet in elevation, and burned 214,800 calories combined. It was a great way to raise money for the memorial fund for the 6535. Thank you to everyone who supported us and donated. Donations can still be made if you are interested.

We finished! 400 miles complete in 5 days. 107 of them today. It’s been an incredible week and we’ve had a blast. The donation website is still accepting donations, please take a look.

Great ride yesterday, no service in Big Sur so I couldn’t post until now. We’re currently 20 miles out from Morro Bay and we had our first major mechanical issue; Darek’s rear derailleur fell off. He’s at the bike shop now, lets hope he’s back in action soon!

Great ride today! Another 42 miles down. Station Monterey is hooking us up big time! Showers, laundry, dinner, and breakfast. It’s awesome to see how Coasties help each other out.
