Shot of my 8 year old daughter and I riding around the neighborhood.
Once school is out we'll be riding together in the morning before I go to work.
This fall we plan to ride the 2-day, 148 mile Bike Around the Bay ride.
The other day we celebrated our silver wedding anniversary. After the photo (below) we got into real cycling garb and rode 80 miles. Lovely weather. Not hot like 25 years ago.
Note: She's not pedalling. She's just there to look pretty. [and yes I have her full permission to say that].
Very nice picture! Congratulations on your silver anniversary!
How tall are you?
I think that head tube is a little longer than my top tube. :)
Ragbrai 2007. We will be there this year
From this morning's Coffee shop loop, on the the Eaton Trail on a bluff overlooking the San Joaquin River. That is our Suntour-equipped 1992 Burley Rock 'N Roll.
Ritterview, those outfits place you in the LGBRC, no? My company, SugarCRM, is the primary sponsor.
Club of the Year!).
Mrs. Ritterview isn't yet a member, but I think she looks quite fetching in the kit. When we get a more race-worthy tandem we'll be doing our time trials, etc. under the Sugar CRM/LGBRC banner.
One of the tandem-specific benefits of joining a large club with a full men's/women's kit selection is it the optimum way of achieving a coordinated tandem team appearance. Otherwise, it is difficult to find cycling clothing that matches for both sexes. Even if you can find jersey and bibs/shorts that match, you won't find vest, jacket, arm warmers, etc. With a team kit, the problem is definitively and optimally solved.
I'm still waiting for my SugarCRM arm warmers. I'm envious!!
Here's mine... Me, oldest daughter 7, and youngest daughter 5.
This was taken 6/15/09 just outside of Waynesburg, PA:
And beautiful she is.
Where is the Eaton trail? I am in Roseville and am always looking for nice rides outside my normal routes.
Kahuna1 and Kahuni2!
Lewis S. Eaton Trail is a nice, wide trail along the San Joaquin River. I wouldn't say, however, it is worth a pilgrimage from Roseville, as it is only 6 miles or so. It is how I get to work in the morning. If you are in Fresno, the ride I posted at Motion Based is a nice 12 mile loop, that could be extended to the North and East along Friant, or to the South and West through the park and along Audubon. If you wanted some more hills and distance, a ride to Humphrey Station might be nice.
Georgia Tandem Rally
More to come... ;)
We finally got a photo of us out riding during an epic day in the Alps. Of course, my stoker couldn't resist the temptation to clown around:
I posted a brief description of this ride on another thread, here.
We got this tandem about 3 weeks ago and are loving it.
