Santa Monica, California, April 2011: Twenty-five cycling enthusiasts took part in the SLOMO 200 Bike Ride, starting from Cannon’s office in San Luis Obispo and ending at Cannon’s office in Santa Monica.
With temperatures in the 30s, the Loose Cannon Team began their adventure on Friday, April 8, 2011. The 75.51 mile trek took them through the hills of San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara Counties. After a brief stop at Foxen winery, they ended the day’s journey in Solvang where, wet and nearly frozen, they rested for the night.
After regaining their strength for the next leg of the ride, on Day 2 the Team conquered an 81.87 mile trek from Solvang, through downtown Santa Barbara all the way to Ventura. From Ventura they rode to Port Hueneme where they finished for the day.
Day 3 was a quick 51.12 mile trip on the PCH/Hwy 1 from Port Hueneme, through beautiful Malibu, and ending at the famous Spitfire Grill in Santa Monica. Here, they were joined by fellow Loose Cannon well wishers for a proper finish line celebration, lunch, and libation.
All in all it was a complete success and enjoyed by everyone involved.
