My Training Team GMR Thurs Reunion Ride Pix

My BigBear training team reunited for another GMR ride. 42 miles of fun to the village. We did a nice group ride type thang. Everything was cool till I gave Grrly some of my Gatorade powder and a piece of my Clif Bar. Never again! We gave her a one minute headstart on the return figuring we'd catch her on the downhill. Maybe even the short climbs. Heck no! She vanished! I held back taking a pic for about 30 seconds as JustMe floated away too. Next thing I know I see him flying up a climb. Holy shmoly, I think the whole team was on EPO. Only reason I caught back up to JustMe was that he pulled over and waited right before the last descent. Other than getting smoked, it was a nice team ride to the village.


JustMe and his finger pointing tour guide tactics

This is about where I get dropped

You'd think they'd wait for The Mayor!

5 bucks says I beat the Mayor to the village by 2 miles!

Same here! Add me to the 2 mile bet! Just lemme cool off first!

JustMe at the village. Experimental day with the CB thingy!

3 Big mistakes today! First, taking a pic of my big dopey face. Second, sharing my Clif Bar with Grrly. Third, giving her some of my special Gatorade powder mix!

Don't try this at home! These pics were taken on the fly descending at 30 mph around the switchbacks by a real professional!....... Had to, he wouldn't slow down!

Nice pics. Wish I could have gone. I would have drafted the whole time and took off towards the top and then talked trash.

Looks like a great day.

Were you on singles? I don't remember seeing a tandem. I didn't see many riders, a group of 3 girls, another 2 girls going up that I remember. We we near the village or the shack area? Hmm, maybe 3 guys but I can't seem to recall what they looked like.


Jetwave, I think I look a little tight in JustMe's picture. I was worried as I had to step up onto the edge of the bank which was pretty unstable ground. That and I was worried that he might try to push me over the mtn side!

You guys are the best, It's funny I ride the SART everyday to work. I have done GMR a couple times a month for the last 5 years and have never hooked up with you. Maybe soon....John

Happy reunion ride! I've never done a reunion ride.

My last reunion anything was my 30 year high school reunion. That was almost 10 years ago and there was no ride!

It's GMR, well overlooking the Azusa offroad rec area and hwy 39.

Sorry Fixer. You need to work your way into my clique,then you too will be invited!

Heck, if I knew you was interested, I would have invited you. But so far, JuzMe and Grrly are the only ones that will ride with me. The rest won't return my pm's or email! We did have a cool nice lil ride!
