Stop by a winery and have a few taste for me. I was in Napa last spring and rented a bike and road a lare abount of the napa wine country with my 2 best friends. we road and tasted and road and tasted some more. This was very fun. I only wish I had of had my bike instead of the rental. Have fun.

One of the few time I won't feel jealous.

I won an all expenses paid trip to Indy for the 500. Just my wife and me, 150.00 suite tickets, (no teenagers allowed), and 500,000 of our closest friends and neighbors.

There's a real good chance I won't even miss my bike.

The first 100 miles (easy) of the route.
I'm looking forward to it!

Doing the Fresno, Mendota, Hollister, Los Banos, Fresno loop again, if I can make time. Right at 250 miles. Not a whole lot of good scenery, but then I don't want to go the mountains direction, as snow level dropped to 4000 feet. Snow, bad.

I'll be there too. What events are you riding in? I'm doing the time trial on Saturday and the century on Sunday. This is my first time at GWBR, so I'm looking forward to new scenery.

Oh, you'll love riding in that area!

We don't actually do any of the organized rides. There's a group of about 20 of us that meet every year and do our standard rides each day.

Anywhere from 40-80 miles each day with some decent climbing.

Where are you coming from?

Lakewood, which is near the LA/OC border. Wife and I are staying in Cambria.
No kidding?? My husband is from Lakewood!!rideslikeagirl
May 22, 2002 7:59 AM
All of the people we are meeting are from OC.

Most of them ride with Velocity. Many others aren't part of a club.

Long shot - have you heard of The Scotsmen?

Did you grow up in the area? I come from a Long Beach family. My dad and most of his brothers and sisters went to Millikan. His youngest brother graduated Lakewood High in '80. He's a Long Beach PD homicide detective and lives on the LB/Lakewood border. My mom went to Poly.

I've lived in Lakewood most of my life. Graduated Lakewood High in '76. Whats your Uncle's name? We are in the same business, different agencies.

May 22, 2002 12:12 PM
Brian McMahon. He lived in the Long Beach District and should have gone to Millikan but went to Lakewood to play baseball for Coach Herbolt (sp?).

Don't know Brian. Herbold was a great coach. I used to attend his baseball camp every summer when I was young. He just retired after 20+ years at, I believe, Cal State Dominguez.

It probably was CSUDH. My uncle ended up playing there on a baseball scholarship after Lakewood.

We lived in North Long Beach until I was ten. We lived near Atlantic and Market (Mountain View), and I went to Jane Addams Elementary. We were in the Jordan district.

Sorry, but I have'nt. I just got back from a 40 miler along PCH. What a beautiful day!! I'm not in a club yet, but I rode last weekend with Lightning Velo and they were a pretty nice group. If you see a 43 yr old guy on a green Calfee Tetra Pro or a red Calfee Tetra Tri TT bike, that would probably be me.

Does your wife ride?

Let me know if you'd like to hook up and meet the gang. They really are a great bunch - it's too bad we don't live closer to them.

We usually have a large camping spot across from the auditorium.
