Cinderella Classic

Lookout! Here come the Cinderella's. We watched some Cinderella's start their ride from the Fairgrounds. Last Saturday, the 31s of March was the Cinderella Classic in Dublin, California. Amy, Kathy, Patti and I met Kim and Monica aka Cujo for the ride. It was an amazing day for me, I completed my first Century, a metric Century but a Century none the less. We spent the day stopping and starting more times than I care to count and passing pink princesses. I got to see the Lemon Drop Man and enjoyed the beautiful rolling hills.

On your left, on your left, on your left.... was the song of the day. Cujo knows the song only too well, the rider she was trying to pass on the left, went left and they almost collided. Riders were everywhere! I heard that over 2,800 entries were sold for this event. I couldn't believe the amount of female bikers everywhere. It was pretty amazing.



Ahh, it was a perfect day, temps in the 70's, beautiful scenery with rolling hills and the best company. What more could one ask for? Well, actually a few less stops and a few more cooperative princesses, but who's counting?...

We only got lost one time when Kathy and I were following a very fast Cinderella, we figured she must have been a racer or something. Later, we found out he was a Cinderfella. There were so many girls with unshaved legs that day, who knew?

Who would have thought that the Lemon Drop Man, was a guy on a hill passing out Lemon Drop candies???? I somehow managed to ride uphill, with camera in hand and pick up a lemon drop. It was well worth it! Shortly after this shot one unlucky Cinderella had crashed her bike on a fast downhill, which reminded me to pay attention and be thankful that I was able to have this special day.


This was our last rest stop before the finish. The last 10-15 miles seemed to fly by, thank goodness. What a fantastic day! I got the pleasure of sharing it with some amazing women. Until next time, ladies....

Sorry about the Cinderfella confusion. I should have my cross dressing habit under control before next years Cinderella

Lauren... I was wondering if I would be able to see him on the ride. Then going up his hill there was a sign. It was pretty cool.

Jeff P... I thought you were going to shave those legs?

I wonder what motivates the Lemon Drop man? I guess if you pass out lemon drops to 2,500 women, you're bound to get at least one phone number, huh?

Hey, what ever happened to NOT taking candy from strangers? I guess that got tossed out the window. Don't tell my kid I took the powdered lemon drop from a strange man.

That's why the flowers on the hillside seemed to be dancing that day.
