    ShHort SART Ride 9/18/11

    Ride cut short today, darn broken frame. Started out a nice ride with Gina and Aimee. Heading back to the coast we ran into Mark and Cindy at Edna Park. Cool, nice little train to the coast. Except that a mile or two down the road my frame popped at the chainstay.

    So we stop and say good bye as Gina and I head back. Before we do, Eric Anderson rolls up on an upright. What the heck ha ha! I saw him earlier, looks like EircAnderson, sounds like an EricAnderson but is it EricAnderson? Yes it was! We chat for a bit when I see Genaro go flying by a second time. Caught me by surprise so I didn't get an footage of the speedster.

    Heading back I figure I can roll slowly back on the bike. Every little pedal stroke separated the frame. So I scooted back like a skateboard and walked up every short incline. At Enda Park, only two miles away, I was worried about the frame collapsing and breaking my face. So Gina suggested that I call El Monarcha who once said, "if you are ever around here and need anything, I live a couple blocks off the trail, give me a call". Gina could have rode back for my truck but I was worried she'd get lost even after offers from Eric and his GPS service. Believe me, Gina will get lost ha ha! So she rode back on the trail while El Monarcha gave me ride to my truck. Yeah, Gina would have gotten lost!

    Nice to see you guys. The first time, I wasn't too sure it was you guys since I didn't think you guys normally ride that direction that early in the morning. The second time, I knew it was you guys.

    I rode out from North Fontana, down to Cherry, Baseline, Miliken, Main, Railoroad, Serfas, Green River to the SART. Nice downhill, averaged 20 MPH's even with the stops, but then took a good little headwind closer to the coast that slowed me down. The plan was to meet my wife in Garden Grove since she was running some errands. When I got to Garden Grove I was at 75 miles, she wasn't done so I rode another 5 and got picked up. Good ride, great weather!

    Nice ride! ...Yup, we usually start near the stadium (Orangewood), head inland about 10 am. Turn around Imperial or beyond then head back to the coast.

    I knew it was you the first time but for a split second, I thought you were Broken Rider because you were wearing his colors.

    Actually, this frame was an upgrade. If they take me back to original set up, still just as good. Next step up would be a Madone and Lord knows I wouldn't cry about that.

    He is the most feared of all the Leaky Fountain Boyz. He's currently at the top of the SoCal bike forums bike journal club with 7400+ miles.





    Pulling the group at 1:20 into the video. At 1:52, shot of the jersey and his colors.
