Trail Ride and Lunch 10/02...59 miles

Figured we'd go big on Sunday since we didn't ride on Saturday. Greenriver to the coast and 59 miles. Aimee, El Monarcha, and Gina all in for the ride. I had to check out the newly paved section near Greenriver. Yeah it's newly paved ha ha!

We did limit our stops so that we (Gina and I) could get to the chicken and ribs place we so like after a good ride. Nice lunch special but we have to be there by 4 pm. We made it with one minute to spare. We usually start our rides late so we figured we'd cut it close.

So all went fine, from the Leaky Fountain to Greenriver and back. But near the 22 Gina began to fade. Gina and Aimee had been switching places off and on so when I saw Aimee behind me, I had no idea Gina had fallen back. The plan was to re water at Edna Park and we were about a mile away. So I waved the other two on then fell back for Gina. She was struggling a bit but after a short break and a Clif Bar she actually recovered pretty well on the final windy section to the coast. Bob and Greg showed up at Edna right after we did for a friendly hello.

At the coast some dude from Germany walked up and introduced himself as Mat, riding a fixie. Made a few nice comments about El Monarcha's bike then headed off after a few short words. He is a lurker on the forums too!

Nice long ride so I'm pretty sure she earned her lunch special today ha ha! So after the ride we headed to the joint. $5.50 for some tasty ribs (pork or beef), chicken (breast and drum stick), rice, coleslaw and a roll? I'm good! No, I don't get free lunch for advertising, just that it's a pretty darn good deal. We'll have to go there after a GMR ride sometime. Citrus and Huntington Dr (or is it Rt 66 at that point?). Either way, across from Azusa Pacific. Small place, looks like and old Wendy's building(?) but tasty and cheap. Oh, and refills on the fountain drinks are only 25 cents.

More pics in my blog if interested.

I knew you were going to use Creedence's Green River for the sound track! Nice ride, nice looking food.

30 seconds after our little group decided to do Greenriver, I knew the song of choice. Yup, we've been to many rib places and this one is the best by far. One nicer joint we frequent is "the Spunky Steer". Baby back ribs are goood but $14 (still a good bargain compared to others considering quantity and sides) vs the $5 at this place. Taste is comparable.

But after being disappointed with Tony Roma's and a few other overpriced rib houses, no, this $5 plate is tops in the tasty department.

Hey Mr. Beanz ! As you know I always enjoy your videos, and I check out you blog weekly. You got to do me a favor and slap down one of those $5.50 meals for me. Keep it up Mr. Beanz, Gina, and friends. I will really look forward to your videos as our weather starts to get colder, and the snow flies.
