Sunday Ride Pics and Video

Sunday 01/31.... Started off running into KingsHockey and his wife. A quick hello then we meet up again at the Honda Center park. Some reason I thought they would stop but I was wrong so I missed the video. I can be slow at times. Joined DutchBoy2 and the Greasers somehwere near Kraemer so we turned back with them for a few miles on the trail. Wow, all strong riders! Pace was a little too much for Gina so we ended up dropping off somewhere near the soccer fields. But while we were with them, we were entertained by Dutchy's stoker. I don't know his name, but might call him "Maestro" after his conducting of the band on the bike haha! At one point he puts his head on Dutchy's back. I asked if he heard a heartbeat. He says no, Dutchy has no heart, but a mechanical pump which s pretty close to the truth! In the video but might not be able to make it out, guy is crazy though!

So a couple minutes after we drop off, I see the RiverVeloBoyz fly by in the opposite direction, a big group. So I turn around and give chase for the peleton shot. Working my butt off, I catch up for a couple clips. Few guys turn off so I keep chasing the main pack. I Finally I catch them but it takes a few miles, guys weren't slowing down! I get a clip form the back but by the time I make myh way up to the front, might be a few more miles before I recover so I just drop off an settle for the butt shots. I know Gina's miles ahead of me on the way to the coast . I never do catch her so I make my way alone.

At the coast we meet up with El Monarcha and his daughter doing a 25 miler along with Tammy and Alan. We cruise back with T&A at a decent pace, nothing too fast but not to slow. Tammy is trainign for the LA marathon and does a ton of running on Saturdays...............and I was tired so I didn't mind a pleasure cruise back.

Did see Insidious Meme and EvilEuro a the coast. Evil is evil against pics so like Nacy, no vid etiher. But anice day with plenty of forum members!

.................A red Bell for the tandem, black Bell for her Bianchi, plus the blue Giro and the pink Giro. 4 helmets but the Giro's work a little better with the pony tail and ventilation so she pretty much sticks with them now. The pink helmet is a limited edition color (pink flames), tell your wife it also comes with a carrying case (helmet pod) so it fits in nicely with the rest of the luggage!

Not sure how the sun is out your way but Gina really suffers in the heat when temps hit 100+, make that 90+! She liked the "match all" black helmet too but I suggested more vents and lighter colors to keep thing s a bit cooler. Really made a difference!

Thanks! Only wish the stills were a bit more clear but it's all good! I'm always trying to get her to smile on camera but she's one of those!

Is yours the HD one? Mine is not and I thought maybe the HD one would do better stills.

PS - more people, making more video of happy people in warm places.?.. not sure I can take it!

Not the HD, the Ultra. The HD was only about $30 more but I figured without the HD, might load faster. Hwne I bought the FLip, I didn't have any idea that stills could be pulled form the vids. SO I'm still up by one!....I wonder though, have you posted stills for the HD?

Mine is the Ultra as well. Maybe someone will (or already has) pony up the extra bucks for an HD and post some stills for comparison.
