My first century in more than 20 years

The Run to Camacho’s century last weekend was special to me for a couple of reasons. It was my fourth century, but my first in more than 20 years. And it revisited back roads I cycled on as a teenager with the American Youth Hostels in San Diego.

It was well organized, with nice touches like renowned Julian apple pie and coffee at the start in Santa Ysabel and a taco feast and mariachi band at the finish in El Centro. But the highlight was the 9-mile descent down Banner Grade to the desert floor. Here is video of most of the descent.
