    Rode with BF'er ZippythePinHead and Gang + an 80 y/o Dude!

    Friday 04/16.......... Met up with Zippy and his gang in HB. I'm to lazy to get up early enough to make breakfast so I hung out at the pier while they finished up their breakfast. Rode back to the Leaky Ftn with the Zippy gang. Nice bunch of people! The Lady of the group turned out to be very nice, guys were cool and the 80 yo dude was really cool too. Had a chance to ride along and talk bikes for a while. Well you can tell by the pics he was ahead of me. Sheesh, 80!!! I'll be happy if I can still ride at 50 (in 3 years).

    The video, song request by Zippy, as well as the dance moves!

    Rode SART from Glassell to HB Main Street and back today. Beautiful weather, and we were joined by the great Mr. Beanz of bikeforum fame down in HB. I believe a video will be forthcoming later.








    Clearly I need to practice shooting moving riders with my camera. The lag time makes it hard to aim the camera at something which moves.


    Everyone knows who this is...






    Love that jersey.

    Thanks! Yeah, much nicer than I expected, the lady Debbie was very nice!. It was the first time I met the gang as it's acutally ZippythePinHead's gang. I met up with the group just to shoot and post some video on the forums of the gang.

    I learned not to hang with "gangs." They can be a rough crowd!
    It doesn't get harder, you just go slower.
