    Sunday 11/13 Trail Ride

    Started out as nice quiet ride with Gina, Aimee and Jose. But at the coast we ran into Mark & Gail, Bad Bob in Blue, EricAnderson along with Varone and his buddies. A few stories about the sweet Dogma then they were off. Jeff and Angie soon rolled up so we knew we were in for a fast return. We only did one ride last week so I was surprised that Gina was kicking some butt today. At one point I dropped back to get some footage just when Jeff and Angie dropped the hammer......AGAIN! I just watched as Gina rode their wheel away from me. I had to really work hard to get back up to them. I did catch PinoyBenter and a few of the RiverVelo boyz ride by.

    Again, saw Alex2 but he didn't catch us on the return, once again. Wow, trying to keep up with Jeff & Angie on the tandem really lifts our pace. Alex usually catches us but the last two times has fallen short. Fast women, fast bikes making it tough ha ha! We did see EricAnderson as well. I thought he might catch us too but again, those darn fast women! ;-)

    One dude in the Simple Green outfit (picture) rode by when I was taking a pic of Gina at the end of our ride. He doubled back and asked if he should take a pic of the two of us. I thanked him even though we didn't but I did grab a pic of the guy. That was nice of him!

    Thanks Beanz, weather looked good, though it might be cold today. You guys were hauling today, glad I didn't go, would have been shamed by the women.

    Haha! Nah, you did good. I thought you were pretty strong on the trail. Gina does well because she's usually trying to hold my wheel. Now Aimee, she is strong! She's got Clyde power (not Athena ) in a tiny little 100 lb body!

    She was on vacation traveling for 3 weeks so she held back on the bike this week.

    Funny to see people in SoCal wearing arm and leg warmers in November.

    Temps dip down to the low 70s or something?

    Richard-I feel your pain, I'm trying to work up the motivation to go out today, its sunny but only 36. Sigh!

    Mr. Beanz, while I don't typically post in this forum, I always enjoy your videos. (I usually check the "view new posts" and open any threads that seem promising.)

    I have ridden only 8 miles this month. Too cold plus it is hunting season. This morning I walked with friends, it was 18 and windy. Snow and ice are on the road. We all wear our wool long underwear, blue jeans and blaze orange. I almost felt like I needed a mask. It is sunny now and up to 27 degrees with a 15 degree wind chill.

    Leaving for 500 miles south on Friday. It is time.

    Most of the riders start early am. Along the coast, it can be very foggy and drizzle in the mornings.
