Where Are You Riding this Weekend? - Aug 25 & 26

Genaro's slipping; Thursday already and he hasn't produced this week's installment yet?!?! Wake up Marine!!

Riding with the Rebels on GMR Saturday. Taking it easy, but definitely riding to the skilifts.

Y vosotros todos?

Hmmm... might cut the GMR ride short to inquire about a vasectomy before they close. Sorry man.

Looking like a Sunday morning ride for me. Meeting a friend at Encanto Park in Duarte to ride up to Dawson Saddle with a stop at the Crystal Lake Cafe on the way down. Should be about 74 miles and over 8k' feet of climbing. Third week in a row I've tried this. First time, I knew I couldn't make it, so I just went to Crystal Lake. Last week, I made it to Islip Saddle (where 2 and 39 meet) but I did not have enough fluid to go for Dawson. Third time's the charm this weekend.

Chris, just tilt the nose of your saddle up slightly and keep riding. You won't have to worry about going under the knife!

Tip of the day: Make sure they double check the anesthetic before they start. An electric shock to the sack will have you clawing the ceiling tiles while screaming like a little girl.

I think I'm riding from my house in Fontanta down to Corono, Green River / Sart to PCH and back to Yorba Linda where I will meet my wife and kids for my daughters Karate tournament.

Hmm... thanks. Paying child-support and wasting my weekends watching a bunch of soccermoms shriek at each other suddenly seems more bearable.

Edit: Straight-n-stalwart, Genaro. (Haha--ate-up smiley-emoticon is saluting with left-hand...haha)

31 mile loop in the area where I live. Pretty much got soaked this morning in the heavy mist.

This Moose Lodge has always intrigued me.

I lived next door for a while. I might still be a Moose at a different chapter.

My wife told me that my club had ridden past the house about 1 1/2 hours before i got home so I rode north and found them north of Las Pulgas.

Really cool ride. Encanto Park to Dawson Saddle with a stop at the Crystal Lake Cafe on the way back. 74.4 miles and 8740 feet of climbing. The weather was perfect.

Did anyone ride (or successfully poach) the Coronado Bridge ride? I'm curious to hear about crossing that span on a bike.

Rule # 427 of the velominati:

No matter how far you zip up your jersey, a bee WILL eventually find it's way through and sting you!

Other then that, I actually did better on this ride then I thought I would, considering how crappy I've been performing lately (outta shape -- my lungs aren't keeping up with my legs)!

Saturday I rode from San Clemente to Oceanside (through the Base) and back on the road bike. Decided to do the Coast in order to avoid heat instead got rained on (well drizzled) the whole time. It was gloriously cool! Tons of riders and groups out there - I assume training for Amtrak.

Sunday, decided to ride Telegraph, from Carbon Canyon. Got a late start but it was still cool and overcast. As I was getting on my mlountain bike, the friend I rode with Saturday rode by - happy coincidence! She was adding on Raptor and the South Ridge climb to the Telegraph ride. I stayed at 4 Corners and chatted with others until she climbed back and then we finished down Telegraph together.

Weather was perfect all weekend. I am so looking forward to Fall when its like that all the time!
