Saturday ride to the beach

Summer has finally found us so Mrs. M. and I rode our hiome trails (about 20km) to the beach to check out the annual "Beach Cruise". Weather was great, trails were in perfect shape, and we're looking forward to riding the more challenging trails at the top of Blue Mountain next week

a few pics:

It looked like a beautiful day for a ride and nice pictures. Summer is officially here on Wednesday.

Thanks for sharing.

Edit: Was the stepside truck a 71?

Sorry, I was too busy looking at the Cobras (we had 3 this year)...The big weekend is August week 3, when over 600 Corvettes from around North America join in the 3 day Corvette Beach Cruise.

A few more pics from Saturday:
