My Rides with some Clydes..pics and video

SART 8/8...... Ran into Playrider and his lovely wife on her new Dolce. Experimental ride, testing the sucker out! Well Let's say I mentioned capturing a clip for the forum but uhhh, like she took of like a rocket so it took us a few minutes to catch back up. Uhhh, Vickie, when Mr Beanz says he wants to shot some video, you're supposed to slow down not drop his buns haha! I can't blame her, newbike!

Then we ran into D4C4C8 and his wife. Don't worry, we won't tell anyone she put the hurt on you today, Oops sorry , just did! At the coast we sat around and laughed with Bad Bob, BoyLd, Lucas, Tammy and Alan, Sarah. Did meet a coupe of tridudes, 80 years old, errr young! Wow! The 82 looked the tougher of the two, I'm gonna keep riding my bike haha with my fingers crossed! Then a return section with Brian.


El Monarcha

Brian

T & A

Lucas

BoyLd

All The Young dudes

Bad Bob

Playrider and his wife

I always enjoy viewing your videos. What great fun you have out on the road. It's also so great to see some Athenas in your video. Wish I lived out in California. (East Coast Babe here, haha) I love Vicky's new bike too.

Thanks!...All 3, Gina, Jen (MRS D4C4C8) and vickie representin' the Athena gals. Not to mention the 4 of us Clydes!

Vickie's bike, hmmm! First 2 times we met she was riding an older heavier MTB type Dept store (?) bike. Not that there is anything wrong with that but it's great her hubby Playrider encouraged her to hook up with a nice bike! She was pretty happy, she should be, it's a purty bike. Mrs. D4C4C8 also got a new bike not to long ago. Great to see the gals out ther riding alongside their mens!

Yes, we have fun in California!

Jen got her '10 Roubaix last November she loves it. it was a close thing between the Roubaix and Ruby, the guy at the shop recommended the Roubaix because it's a bit stiffer.

She kicked my but on that section of the ride. Every now and then she gets in a mood and i have to bust a hump just to keep up. I'm proud of her, she's been riding about 5 years and i've been seriously riding 30 years and she really has it together. I'm always amazed at how she's progressed. God I love that woman!

Yeeeeeah, like Vickie, a little warning before blast off would be nice. It's hard chasing down these rockettes!
