Saturday ride

Sat ride, ran into a few friends, nice day. Met a ride named Brian. He ws heading for 100 but thinking more like 60. He may be signing on, not sure but if he wants his pic, he's got to alteast take a look. He says he has no pic for his facebook page so he needs the pic.


Postride meal at Los Jarritos in Pomona. Guys were tripping on the Flip so I made a postride meal video.

I was going to go on a breakfast ride this morning myself, but now I don't feel like I need to.

Nice videos. They put my little Monon Trail post with its still pics to shame.

I get the feeling you're a lot like my brother-in-law, who never met a stranger. I'm kinda the opposite. Wish I were different, but after 55 years I don't think I'm gonna change.

Must be nice to have those nice wide bike paths, with no roving bands of idiot joggers who must be 5 abreast going across the entire path covering both directions, forcing cyclists into the dirt to pass, something that is not easy with skinny tires.... What is up with joggers anyway, was on a bike path yesterday, there is a nice wide boardwalk not 5m away, but the joggers need to block the bike path instead. Even when there are signs that state walkers/joggers/runners <- bicycles -> the joggers must still use only the bike path......

The trail/path where I usually ride is full of bikers, joggers, walkers and rollerbladers. Other than a run-in with a walker who allowed her dog to pull its lead all the way across the trail to sniff something and pee, and an idiot who thought the trail was the appropriate environment to learn to rollerblade backward, all of the rude and inappropriate behavior I've seen has been by cyclists, I'm sad to say. The trail is posted everywhere with ROW requirements. Rollerbladers are supposed to yield to everyone, and bikers are supposed to yield to pedestrians. But most of them don't seem to have a clue. And most of the time it's the "uniformed" road cyclists who misbehave, and typically at a speed in excess of the posted 20 MPH limit. More casual cyclists seem a lot nicer.

They are out there at times. Nice thing is 30 miles one way, not too often that it is to congested. I 'm not sure but I have grat luck with joggers etc. The bell on my bike does wonders. I have wlkers/joggers tank me all the time for the warning, often a funny or friendly comment on the bell.

To be honest, I have more problems with cyclists. The groups , 4 abreast approaching head on taking 9/10 of my lane and don't see the need to move over...but that's another topic. I can see both sides of the subject. Maybe that's why I don't get much flack from the joggers.

Thanks for the compliments guys!

Seriously, no ride post with pics is too little. It's all good, I only make the vids for fun and not in comp with others. Keep posting so that the others don't get bored of watching the same old Beanz videos. It aint fun if you don't have some variety to chose from.
