Today's Saturday ride with a few Girlies hee and there

Don't anybody freeakout, Gina knows and I had permission to take some girlie footage. She didn't ride today so AZCarbos,Mad_One and MTBLrkr dragged me to the pier and forced me to record a few shots of the tough California conditions in which we are forced to ride. Subject had been brought up before so Gina said I should to give other riders in other states an idea of what we have to deal with here, especially the snow covered states haha!



Pinoybenter


Eric Anderson says Hi!


Ok, a chickadee behind me and two hotties to the side. I give AZCarbos the cam so he can record some hottie footage but he starts interviewing me and misses the two hotties. Young guys, SHEESH!


MTBLrkr to the left, I think he's lost!


His face didn't change the entire time we were a the pier!


Mad_One had a hard time staying on his bike! Loss of concentration!


We did ride some...MTBLrkr and Mad_One on PCH


AZCarbos in full sprint!

Well, that beats the scenery in MY ride...all I saw was a few cars, a few cyclists and a lot of cactus. I did see a road runner, though.

Remember this shot from my ride up Mt. Lemmon?

Well, if you look beyond the cactus there is a road that goes straight up a small hill way out in the back ground. Well, today I rode along that straight road, and here is what it looks like from that small hill looking back to Mt. Lemmon...

Stunning; especially the ones of the chick walking by the bathrooms and one in the red 2-piece. The one in the 2-piece had "cauliflower" written all over it.

I can't wait to get to the beach...

No matter how nice the scenery, I don't envy those 90 -> triple digit temperatures. I'll stick with my PNW summers: 85 is really pushing the top end of the mercury.

Bit of a bummer on this day, a little cooler (70's)so the views were...ok. When the temps hit 90's and the 3 digits, the view will be MUCH better!

We live inland so the temps will hit 114 at it's max. Part of the reason we ride down to the coast in the summer, 10 degrees cooler at times.
