A wonderful ride put on by an organization that trains and educates wounded veterans to re-integrate into society and the workforce.
I didn't think the battery on my Android phone would record Strava for the whole 100-miles, so I got this little back-up thingy... works great, doubles your phone life.

First 50 miles went great - paced myself well over Diablo and up Morgan Territory. Then played it safe going down the Plunge but soon realized I couldn't shift into my big chainring. Turned out to be a cable housing split that I couldn't fix. I was stuck in my little ring for the remainder of the ride so after the lunch stop in Livermore I decided to skip the Foothill Road section and take a shortcut back to the finish - saved me about 9 miles.
