    Our Holiday Ride Report

    More pics and video in my blog

    Gina and I hit the trail once again for another 41 miles. Quickly ran into Jose and Bong at the Honda Center park. Bong's daughter and couple other riders were with them so we had to get a pic ha ha! Hit Imperial then headed back to the coast. Edna Park restrooms are under construction so we decided to stop for a stretch at the new little park/landing after the wooden bridge. Wasn't long before Greg came up for a chat, then Mobile155 of the forums. Wow, when you are riding,seems like you are out there alone. When you stop and actually pay attention to the amount of riders going your way, it's shocking. So a brief chat with Mobile then he headed off with his group. I thought we had only been there with Greg for 20 minutes or so but Gina says more like an hour, how time flies!

    So we hit the coast where Jed19 is hanging out. We chat for a bit then Pete rides up, more chatting. Pete's funny, always got something good and funny to say. It was his birthday this week as was mine so we decided to compare white hair ha ha! He won hands down! Then Tammy and Alan come along to join the party. Also a dude I met a few months ago named Dave. He's really been getting into the training and nutrition aspect of riding, good for him although he claims to be riding for fun. Krylon shows up so I chat with him for a bit then he flies after some modeling for the women he he!

    Of course being a holiday, the beach was pretty crowded and lots of people. Again, all I can say is "summer is coming"! After some time at the beach stop we head back with Tammy and Alan. Alan takes the front for the last few miles setting a good pace. The rest of us follow. After Edna Park bridge he slows the pace so we all relax for the final two mile cool down.

    Nice. Another gorgeous day in cement river land...

    I wanted to go to Paso Robles this weekend for the great american bike festival, but my wife wasn't too sure about riding on streets with all those drunk wine tasters driving around, so she said "let's go to Napa instead"



    We did a nice easy 37 miler on Saturday which I think is her personal longest ever, and then Sunday she was all fired up to go again (I wasn't) and we drove all the way up to Calistoga, got all gussied up, started riding and she said "I don't think I can go today". I told her we should pack the bikes up and go wine tasting (because I wasn't really that fired up) or something but she said, no, you go ahead and ride so I had to. Aw dang.

    Looks like you guys had plenty of fun anyway.
