|June 23, 2007--We traveled to
Quincy, California, to ride the 200-kilometer version of the Summer
Solstice Century, a ride benefiting the California Forest
Foundation. The 200K route featured some 12,000 feet of climbing, making
it a popular stop for riders training for the upcoming Death Ride.
Presented below, photos before, during, and after the ride.
We've included a few photos of the Ranchito Motel, a well-preserved 1940s-era establishment. Check out the photos from 1948 and 1949--the motel still looks almost exactly the same.
