Sunday Ride Report With Herb & Alyce

What the heck, put it in the ride thread but maybe it's too big. Too many pics etc so it deserves it's own.


Sunday 03/13/11....Finally hooked up with Herb & Alyce for a ride. We had been planning the ride for a few weeks now, but the rain and a few other obstacles, it finally happened. Herb & Alyce invited us to start from there house in Orange, so that was cool. We hit the road and made our way through town, over to Mountain to Sea trail (?). I'm not real sure of the names, I was just happy to follow and not get lost ha ha! Through Irvine then around Back Bay.

On the trail we ran across Drew who we hadn't seen for quite some time. As we were getting read to pose for a pic, another rider Simon from the Nimrods stopped and asked if he could help us out by taking a pic of us all. Cool! So he chatted for a brief moment and it was obvious he's quite the character. Pretty funny entertaining guy!

So after a few hills, some trails we hit PCH and headed towards HB. Stopped at a Mc'D's for a cheeseburger and some story telling. Well my stories, Herb & Alyce pretty much just listened and laughed ha ha! Then we stopped at the usual beach stop for short break. The rest of the ride was a tailwind return and off into the sunset.

I was pretty shocked with Alyce. She mentioned that we would do a touring pace. As mentioned in the video, I was expecting to go much slower but she's pretty strong. They had done a ride through Santiago Canyon on Saturday but even a little fatigued, she rode very well. I'm not even sure exactly where we were but there were a few hills that got the heart pumping. Nice 47 mile course, nice ride.

Bummer part of the day. The night before the ride, my truck started acting up. Maybe a dying battery. But we couldn't miss the ride again so I figured if it dies, hopefully herb had some cables for a jump. He did so off we went and now, looking for a new battery. Bummer, I could have bought new tires for the bikes he he he!




This holy feeling came over me when I took this picture ha ha!
