Greenriver...10/02

Figured we'd go big on Sunday since we didn't ride on Saturday. Greenriver to the coast and 59 miles. Aimee, El Monarcha, and Gina all in for the ride. I had to check out the newly paved section near Greenriver. Yeah it's newly paved ha ha!

We did limit our stops so that we (Gina and I) could get to the chicken and ribs place we so like after a good ride. Nice lunch special but we have to be there by 4 pm. We made it with one minute to spare. We usually start our rides late so we figured we'd cut it close.

So all went fine, from the Leaky Fountain to Greenriver and back. But near the 22 Gina began to fade. Gina and Aimee had been switching places off and on so when I saw Aimee behind me, I had no idea Gina had fallen back. The plan was to re water at Edna Park and we were about a mile away. So I waved the other two on then fell back for Gina. She was struggling a bit but after a short break and a Clif Bar she actually recovered pretty well on the final windy section to the coast. Bob and Greg showed up at Edna right after we did for a friendly hello.

At the coast some dude from Germany walked up and introduced himself as Mat, riding a fixie. Made a few nice comments about El Monarcha's bike then headed off after a few short words. He is a lurker on the forums too!

Nice long ride so I'm pretty sure she earned her lunch special today ha ha! So after the ride we headed to the joint. $5.50 for some tasty ribs (pork or beef), chicken (breast and drum stick), rice, coleslaw and a roll? I'm good! No, I don't get free lunch for advertising, just that it's a pretty darn good deal. We'll have to go there after a GMR ride sometime. Citrus and Huntington Dr (or is it Rt 66 at that point?). Either way, across from Azusa Pacific. Small place, looks like and old Wendy's building(?) but tasty and cheap. Oh, and refills on the fountain drinks are only 25 cents.

More pics in my blog if interested.

OK, I suck with google maps so I used a jpeg:

Just east of the Citrus/Alosta Blvd intersection (about one-two miles north of the 210 fwy) right across form Azusa Pacific college.

994 E. ALosta Azusa Ca 91702...right next door to Acapulco restaurant

210 fwy, exit Citrus, north for about 1 mile to Alosta, right on Alosta to Chicken and Ribs...just past McDonalds and next to Alcapulco restaurant.

The red X


click image for larger image, heck, click it twice.

Ya know, I can never remember this place after a GMR ride with friends that want to go eat lunch after the ride. We usually go to the Hat (Grand and 66 right down the street) where a sandwich alone is $6, more than the price of the rib meal.

Never eaten there. Never known anything about golf so I never hang around golf facilities. I didn't even know there was a place to eat there.

The greenriver? I ate it. If I had known I could have gotten something to eat at the golf course.....

Green River Golf course is public and there's a cafeteria type restaurant open for breakfast and lunch. They close at 4 pm. I heard of riders going there from H.B. to Green River for something to eat and moving on. You pass the entrance to the club as you ride just before the park. Instead of making a sharp left, just go right.

Ah! You know, we never eat on rides. We eat breakfast but can't really eat on a ride. We rarley get down a Cliff Bar on a 42 miler and not hungry till afer the ride.

If I am not doing 100 miles, I won't eat anything other than an energy type bar on a ride.
