28 Hilly Miles and an Old Fred

Well after a little enouragement and some interaction with one of the mods, I figure I'll start posting rides here again, as well as in my blog. Not all mods are bad, Sui Blue Wind is pretty cool! She's got class, she's got style I feel like we're cousins! hehehe!

Anyways, 8/5 on GMR....Hillbasher and I run into a 70 yo dude that does GMR 3 times a week. Nice guy! We rode GMR and a section of GRR.

The video:


FRED, the guy will be 70 years old next week and does GMR about 3 times a week!








You can't see him in the pic but Hillbasher is a little spec at the top of the climb

It's good to see your video, pictures and ride report again!! I always enjoy them, even though I'm so jealous of the landscape!

Thanks! I rarely get feedback on the videos so I often wonder if people even pay attention to them. So thanks for the feedback, I appreciate it! YES, we are so lucky to have this place to ride.

No, I do check the videos. I loved the music you used for that one. Watching it, I kept thinking that a 60 minute version might work well as a motivator for my weekday spinning! hint, hint!

Haha! Thanks, I'm a big Billy Idol fan! 60 minutes! Youtube allows 10 minute max videos!
