Aww ... well, Santa Maria's OK, I guess. If you like sunshine, warm weather, and empty roads dotted with oaks and an occasional winery. lol

Spent some quality time just over the hills in Roger Ramjet country. Enjoyed it, especially when coming into the sun at your home town.

Good to have some more company at the table.

Hi Manny and Rosemary, those are sweet looking bikes y'all have. They look very well maintained and loved, just the way a bike should be treated!. Your C'Dale ST is very nice, I've been exclusively ob 'Dales since '91. Its great that you have decided to post here in the 50+, looking forward to your ride reports.

Bill

Welcome to the forums.




Side note: When you shared that your wife's name was Rosemary, suddenly the song Love Grows(Where My Rosemary Goes) popped into my head.

Welcome to the friendliest group in BikeForums! Anyone who rides 1980s (or older) bikes is a friend of mine.

Santa Maria is indeed a great area -- I have passed through a few times, but I have never spent as much time there as I would like to.
