Just thinking after reading some of the "back in the day" statements in EU's thread.
I first rode the SART back in 1992. I knew nada about riding or bikes. I bought a big heavy Huffy MTB at Target ($150) started at Yorba Park, rode to HB, across to Balboa, eat a piece of pizza then rode back. 60 miles on a Huffy!
Continued for a month or two then bought a Miyata hybrid. Ahhh much better! I rode about 10 times a month including around home off and on for a year or two but still playing ball so never dedicated my hobby time to cycling alone.
At the end of 95, I bought a Trek Roadie and that was all she wrote. So I've been on SART since 96 religiously. Maybe 2 or 3 weekends a year at most without my dose of SART unless I was doing GMR rides.
Gina, she's been doing the hybrid thing since 94'ish. Roadie in 97'ish, then fairly consistent till donating a kidney to her son in 2001. Some riding but nothing to long or strenuous for about a year then it was back on the road.
A little off and on for a couple of years but since 2005, she's been there just about everyweekend.
I was told by another poster that he was the original SART Mayor cause he had been riding the trail much longer than I.
What's your story?
My thoughts? MOVE OVUH SUCKUH CAUSE YOU'VE BEEN UNSEATED!!!!!
