December 20th, 2009
It was a little colder today, low 70s I think. I had at least four sets of plans fall through and I slept in until 8:00am so I decided to go ride by myself ands see who I might run into on PCH; its Sunday everyone is on PCH. I figured that I would get at least 50 miles in and at most get 80 miles in. Felt good enough either way, but ended up with 60 miles of riding in 3 1/2 hours.
As I was about to enter Bolsa Chica I saw the California Pools and Spas team going south, so I turned around and chased up to them. It took me almost to Beach Blvd to catch them. Dan Reback was there like I suspected. One of the best guys I know. As we cruised south bound we passed a tattooed cyclist with a miss-matched kit, and I had an elitist thought. That is until Ashley came up next to me and scared the shit out of me. We tagged on the back of the Cal Pools group until Newport so we could meet up with Erik and 2 lady friends.
These four took me all the way home, giving my ride a yin and yang; 30 miles north all alone, and 30 miles home among good friends. Weights tomorrow.
