Come on, there's so many problems out there today, come and relax, have fun on the little Ice Cream Ride!
I wanna meet some of you guys...:)
Maybe it will end up being twelve vicious miles of screaming headwinds...:eek:

We were out on SART today. Geez it was blowing hard! At times we were riding at 13 then a gust would slow us down to 6. Cut it short cause the wind kept blowing Gina around, most of the time into me.:D
I was thinking about the poor lil kids no the ice cream ride (if it's anything like this)!:eek:
How did it go out there?

No wind at all...it was a perfect very warm So Cal fall day...maybe 75 riders all shapes ages and sizes. I brought my 17 year old daughter with me and we picked up a 13 year old boy along the way...just joined in (he asked first and I promised him some ice cream at the end if he made it.). We missed a turn off so went about 15 miles. And yeah...I admit I don't even feel it in the legs but so what? It was a blast!
Tonight we do this movie night at the Bike Oven...:D

Glad you all had a fun ride!
I'm getting off of work here in a few minutes and I'll be stopping at Scoops (now that I know exactly where its at) on my way home.

What time were you guys on SART? I rode the Amtrak up to Anaheim Stadium today, caught SART at 8:02, PCH and some hellacious winds back down to Carlsbad. Took nearly 5 hours to ride 83 miles, but those crosswinds through Pendleton were howling.

We were there 9:30 thru 12:00'ish. Winds at end of ride were far stronger than when we sarted at 9:30. Southbound we stopped at the Honda Center, wasn't blowing too hard. On the return, we had to stand over the bikes so they wouldn't fall, err, so WE wouldn't fall!:D...All while getting sandlblasted!
