    S. California 50+ Can We Meet

    After reading a very nice post by Digital Gee, I thought how great it would be for a group of S. Ca 50+ forum folks to get together. Has this ever been attempted or done?

    Orange County, Ca.

    A bunch of us (50 + and -'rs) got together before the Santa Fe Century a couple of years ago for dinner. The pictures are posted here somewhere. It was fun.

    I could just imagine the fun of all of those Diegos in one room.

    Wow! Something just came to mind... In my junior high days, I took Spanish and each person had a Spanish name that was used in the class. It was generally the Spanish equivalent of the student's first name... Like Esteban for Steven, Roberto for Robert etc. There wasn't anything for Darwin, so I was Diego..

    OK Let's do it!!!! I'm having surgery next week so will not be riding for a month. So, I drive the SAG wagon.

    Let's set a tentative date and see how many folks we can round up.

    How about July 29, 2006 somewhere in the middle of LA and San Diego
    like San Clemente, Ca.

    First of all no one in that photo looked 50!?!?!? Geez I feel really old!!!

    I actually been involved in monthly rides with folks I met from another web site (teamestrogen.com). We have been startig our rides in Orange County (Tustin Ranch area) and have another one planned for the end of this month (which will probably start in Irvine). The folks have been coming from all over, mostly LA but one from Canyon Lakes and others from San Diego.

    If any of you are looking for routes to do I have several I can send ya or you can come join us on July 30th. Warning, my group is very mixed - alot of "newbies" who are strong but not fast. I'm helping them train for the Cool Breeze Century.

    If I don't have to work that day, I think I can make it, as well. Does anyone else want to carpool, bikepool, or trainpool to the event from north coastal San Diego County? (I live in Encinitas and work in the Carlsbad Airport Centre business park, immediately west of McClellan-Palomar Airport.)

    The wifey and I are planning either a motorcycle trip or flying out to visit our son and his better-half in Camarillo. He has an extra bike and we are planning to ride from the gates of Pt. Magu to Redondo Beach (PCH) where the ladies will meet us at Naja's (Bier Joint on the International Boardwalk.) This is tentatively planned for sometime in August.

    When plans solidify I'll post an update. Perhaps some 50 plusers might want to join in.

    Hopefully my diet has progressed enough by then to allow me to cheat and enjoy an after-ride rewarding brew at Naja's.

    Did this thought die out or are we really going to do a forum ride?

    That date works for me--esp. if it's afternoon. I have a club ride Saturday morning. OTOH, if we're meeting AND riding, and if the speedies among you will wait for me, morning would be OK, too.

    I'm in but know nothing about San Clemente. I assume we are going for some sort of ride and maybe lunch? I can google just about anyplace. Let me know the time and how far you want to ride. I amgetting faster but a nice slow ride wouldnt bother me a bit.

    Chuck5.2...my email if you want to use that route to get this organized is yorbalisa@aol.com

    July 29th!

    I'm not riding due to surgery so I will drive the SAG Wagon if everyone wants to ride.

    I really woud like to get together. I think it would be a real HOOT! (as I used to say in Texas).

    Here is a link showing all Resteraunts in the area. Mexican is fine with me, actually I'm game for anything!!!!
    Given the heat wave we are having the hotter the food for me the better. Eating Indian or Thai in SE Asia was always a sure bet to cooling off with some brewski's.

    So, guys step up and help choose a place or I'll be left to make a decision. Then no complaints. (I'm not familiar with the resttraunts in that area.)

    I may have to take a pass after all. My father (82) was hospitalized today with another in a series of heart problems, and I don't have much other information, but it's serious. My folks live in Florida, and I need to be able to travel suddenly. I'm also leaving tomorrow for a business trip of two days, so I won't be back here until Thursday, although I may have internet access on my trip. I will definately let you know one way or the other by Friday if I can make it.

    If you need a suggestion, how about meeting at Christianitos in San Clemente? There's a Carl's Jr. right off the freeway. From there you can ride through the state park all the way to Las Pulgas (about 11 miles), then through Camp Pendelton to Oceanside (about 9 miles). Round trip to Oceanside is about 40 miles. It's hot, so I suggest riding early, say 7:00? This should be a no-drop ride, not a race!

    Only downside - not possible for fthomas to drive "sag wagon" along this route, but it sounds like he does want to pick the place to eat!
