A pic of Mr Beanz on his bike (uuuh I mean video)

OK, so I'm not in the pics! , 01/09...Nice 72 miler with some forum members. Nice tailwind down to SealBeach and not so nice on the return. But lots of fun with with the small group after the fast guys split. Ran into a forum friend Ricky and a couple of his buddies. So we had a pretty nice group Including a dude with his little kid on the back of a tandem with a buggy. They held on pretty good for a good while. Seemed a little camera shy though haha! Post ride meal at the Green Onion just down the way from Encanto Park. Boy did that big burrito go down way too easy!

Awesome!
Makes me sad that I left my video cam at home for yesterday's Winter Training Series ride with the Cascade Bike Club. It was a 60% chance of rain according to the forecast, and it was cloudy and cool when I left the house so I didn't bring anything except the still cam. Turned out to be a beautiful day (47 degrees and clear, sunny sky) about 1/3 of the way into the ride.

Thanks guys! Yup, it there's a chance of rain, I don't like to take the camera. But if I do, I wrap them up tight in a a baggie and only snap from under shelter...That's if I ride!

There's a waterproof housing for the VholdR camera, and I think that needs to get to the top of my "need it" list so I can film year round.

Great video of a great ride. Good music choice too. But, come on, Gotta have the Stones with Sympathy-dude, what were you thinking?

Jealous - we did 46 in the hills from Wallace to Martell, it was cold and foggy 99% of the ride, saw the sun when we stopped for coffee in Martell. About 4700 feet of climbing, http://connect.garmin.com/activity/22011224
