    Sat. Trail Ride 11/10

    My Garsh what a windy ride! Our first time back on the trail in 5 weeks. Windy, chilly and (did I say) WINDY? But at least we got to ride. Couple of GMR rides and lots of birthday parties over the last couple of weeks made this ride tough. 41 miles figuring I'd use it as an easy ride to get my new shoes fitted properly but it turned out more of a struggle. One of those rides where the wind seems to be against you in all directions. Rarely do I get a ride like this, one way with wind and a tailwind back. Today, we head south, big headwind. We cross a bridge heading west, headwind, cross east, headwind, then return north, BIGGER headwind. Too much time off the bike and too many parties! Hopefully we can get back on track and make it through the holidays.

    We ran into Herb & Alyce for a short chat. Not sure but I think Alyce was still in her pajamas ha ha! OK, so it was a huge tee shirt. I'm so used to seeing Alyce in tank tops, I didn't even recognize them when they rolled by. A fly by from The Legend Greg and a shout "Frijoles" from Evil Euro. chat with Alex2 at the coast and a visit with Tammy & Alan.

    Alyce did tell us that a due named Victor from Mission Viejo recognized her form the videos. I';m not sure who it was or maybe the old age is getting to me ha ha!

    More pics in blog if interested



    Gina happy it's over!

    Talk about tough! Yesterday was bad enough.

    im off the bike a bit due to straining my left knee yesterday making whatever I did to it commuting earlier this week worse.

    I read your report about riding to the shop and wind. I was thinking what wind? Now I know!

    So what kind of shoes did you get? I'm sure you said before... but go ahead, relive the glory.
