I am pretty sure I missed last year, but, Anza is a perennial favorite. I have waxed on the history, the Santa Ana River, but it is the city parks elevation that makes it so enjoyable. That and the numerous concrete walkways that have been included in the course design. Plenty of grass, a little loose stuff, a u-shaped sand trap, a few steep pitches, barriers and plenty of hecklers. I brought a team jersey, bike with all the sponsored gear and raced. The only advantage of age might be smaller fields. My was small and I still race to mid-pack.

A couple buddies asked if I wanted to go do the Fried Green 50, a homegrown, small time, and FREE event this weekend. It all seemed harmless enough I thought. Why not? The FG50 is a gravel ride/race which starts in the minuscule town of Juliette which, for those of you movie buffs (or tomato lovers), is the town where the Fried Green Tomatoes movie was partly filmed. That’s about all the relation this event has to the movie though.
