New Year's Day Ride: All Are Invited! Santa Monica Mountains: three distance options & start/finish spots

Let's kick off the New Year in style, doing what we love! Please join me on a road ride around and over the Santa Monica Mountains on Wednesday, January 1, 2014! There are three possible starting points and times, so your route can be 78 miles, or about 60 miles, or about 45 miles. This is an excellent route with a nice, easy first 1/2 to 2/3 and then a goodly amount of climbing in the final 3rd, up, along, and over the Santa Monica Mountains.

Got a steel bike? Ride it! Even better if it's a classic steel bike!

Coming? Post a comment below, and tell your friends. All are invited!

....I tried posting a comment earlier...but it hasn't shown up. I've never ridden with rough riders, but I'll be there tomorrow. Looking forward to some hills.
