Lemond Chambery/Cannondale R-900/Trek 8000 MTB/Burley Duet tandem
Sunday Ride Report 4/14
Well it was not a good day for Gina. I think she spent all her energy singing Wild Thing the night before the ride ha ha! We did start the ride with Aimee and Jose but they proved to be too much for Gina today.
As we were headed to Imperial we rolled by a couple of guys stopped on the side of the road taking a break or something. Later down the road the rolled by us. I know how competitive Aimee is so we unleashed her knowing she'd run the guys down ha ha! That's the reason I used "Evil Woman" on this video. Evil is meant in a good way since there is nothing Evil about Aimee (that we know of) other than her sense of competition ha ha!
So as I figured, she rolled off well after the guys rolled by, pretty much out of sight at this point. Jose looking for a workout rolled out on Aimee's wheel. Sure enough, she catches the guys, goes around, takes the front and drops one of the guys. The other was happy to hold her wheel. As she pulls off at our turnaround point, the guy is cool enough to thank Aimee for the awesome pull! Now that is what I mean by Evil, Aimee's Evil Power ha ha!
We regroup then head off to the coast. Only a few seconds and Aimee is pulling away for us into the wind. Jose on her wheel so I figure she has good help if she needs a breather. Again we regroup 12 miles down the road at Edna Park. Aimee's looking like she's had a good workout. That's good cause Gina's pace would have put her to sleep today ha ha! I figured Aimee would do all the work to this point and she did. SO we leave and soon they are once again far ahead. This time the wind is strong enough that she lets Jose help out. Can't blame her, the windsocks were straight out when Gina and I reached the coastal area.
Short break then headed back. Gina did OK for a while but faded as we hit the short climb near the 405 so Aimee went around to do her thing with Jose on her wheel. Not to mention some other lady in white that joined us somewhere along the return. Hey, she was cool. She hung with us and when we dropped at the 405, she went around and said thanks for the pull. I was in shock, I hardly ever hear thanks from strangers that hop on ha ha!
