Rides

Sorry for the late notice, but a few of us are going riding early tomorrow morning. You local guys are welcome to join us if you like.

Here's the planned route:

http://www.mapmyride.com/routes/view/42687614/

You can see the route is 35 miles long there are three category 67 climbs on that route. It's a beautiful route with majestic ocean views and some really nice houses here and there.

The plan is to leave the EE shop tomorrow morning at around 5:30 a.m. and then ride before opening tomorrow at the usual 9:00 a.m.

If anyone wants to join in on the fun tomorrow morning, let me know.

I'll try to give you guys more notice before the next group ride.

It sure was fun. it was tough, but fun.

After most of the ride was done, with maybe 4 or 5 miles to the shop, we stopped for some drinks.



Han was ahead of us, you can see him wearing a white top by John's right shoulder:



We should do this more often. I'll try taking more pics as I build some strength to keep up with the guys.

It was a fun morning for sure. Thanks to John, Ho and Han!

I didn't get any photos of Han, I was too stunned by these sights:

These cell phone cameras are really handy.

I don't think I have even one pic of rides from my high school days. There were no cell phones back then and we never carried cameras either. The only pics I have are some racing pics that some others took.

I like this pic:


You can see the tremendous size difference between Aaron and me. Even our rear tires look different in size for some reason. It's probably the color of the tires and rims, but then again even the shadow cast by Aaron's rear wheel looks longer. It's weird.
