The last Cool Breeze Century I participated in was back in 2011 when a bunch of bent riders, led by Joel Roberts and supported by BentUp Cycles, showed up to ride. I rode all of five miles (more then planned) that day. My hips were shot and a month later I had arthroscopic hip surgery. A couple of years later I had both hips replaced.
Now it's 2015 and time to go back to ride the coast starting in Ventura. I've opted to do an easy and flat 30 mile mini-metric ride along the coast. I'm not interested in any of the other routes and I'm at an age where accumulating mileage for the sake of mileage is just not that much fun.
