Lemond Chambery/Cannondale R-900/Trek 8000 MTB/Burley Duet tandem
Another 42 miles on SART with Gina and Aimee. After our short warm up of 7 miles to Imperial we saw LewisAClark roll by, chance for another pic. As we rolled into the beach stop some dudes asked if I was Mr. Beanz. Yup, that is me ha ha! Turns out I met one of the dudes before. These guys introduced themselves as Gene and Oliver (Pyrenees1 on the forums). Nice guys , we had some laughs but they left rather quickly, after a group shot of course.
Soon after rolled up The Legend Greg with some bad news. Bad bob broke his shoulder on a tour in Italy. I'm thinking the Giro but not quite sure as I didn't have a chance to watch it this year ha ha! Hopefully he heals quickly cause the recorder misses him ha ha! Some bike talk with Greg then he rolled back with us to our stop, then continued on alone.
At the coast I also had a chance to chat with a new bud Rick. He said hello a couple times over the last few weeks but this was the first chance I had to chat with the dude. He's not much into the net stuff but pretty cool fella. If ya see him, say hi! He sure looks happy to be on the bike!
Mr Beanz!! I think you know Uglybob from the love forums, and I used to hang out there too. In fact, I may have met you in 2006 at the Tour of Palm Springs. In any event, I moved from AZ to Ca, and bob is coming out next weekend (21st) and we're going to do his annual birthday ride on some old bikes down the SART. The plan is to start at Yorba Regional Park, cruise to the beach, ride around a little, eat, then come home. Any interest in joing us? I havent ridden the SART since the 80's when I grew up here. I cant wait. Also, from checking out your blog, I see Jimmy in one of your pics; I just met him a couple weeks ago at a Rebel Riders ride. I cant wait to get to know some fellow riders here.
