42 miler on the trail with Gina and El Monarcha. Not sure who the other guys are but every time we ride, seems some dude will force one of our buds out of place. Hmmm! Either way, it was a cool ride. Lots of headwinds. Thought we'd have a tailwind on the return but the return was tougher than heading to the coast which is unusual.

At the coast we ran into MTBLrker, no interviews. A short rest and visit at the coast having to head home for another birthday party. MTBLrkr somewhat rode back with us. Ahead of us, then behind, ,ahead then behind, guy was making me dizzy. El Monarcha was pretty happy. I had given him the rear wheel on his bike some time back. But since the Lemond is gone, I have no need for the front gold rim so I handed it over so he'd have a matching set on his bike. He was pretty happy as this one is much smoother than the wheel he was riding and he was happy to pose for a pic ha ha!
