This was SUCH a fun day and ride!! Only my second Cyclone Coasters ride, the first being the Sears ride earlier in the year... I have to make more of these rides... Frank and company are just the best! The weather, the turn out of FANTASTIC Huffmans, and the seriously fine bicycle folk make this the preeminent southern California ride. What a GREAT time we had.
Thanks to Darcie and Nick, Amanda and Brant, and I'm sure others for making the journey from out of state, your company was enjoyed by all.
If you ever get the chance to ride in So. Cal, be sure to take it, it's an experience you will cherish for a long time. Despite the reputation, the So. Cal vintage bike community are friendly, fun and welcome bike folk from out of town.
Here are a few pix from both the Foothill Flyers ride on Saturday, and the Coasters ride on Sunday... Darcie, Amanda, Nick and I all took my '61 Rambler American convertible to lunch, then rode in the afternoon in beautiful Monrovia with Fordmike, Louisa, Brant, Marty and a truly nice group of folks.. such a nice, homey town ride! This weekend completely recharged my battery...
Awesome pics Justin! @Balloonatic, and thx for the tire pump and convertible ride!
Nick and I had such a great time riding and putting faces to all the CABErs, and the SoCal hospitality was kickin in high gear- big thanks to Mike @fordmike65 for doing a Monrovia ride, and a front tube repair- who knew there was such a thing as "Goat Heads"?? Strange how it was just us "out-of-towners" picking them out of our tires lol.
And the CC ride was truly something to behold, and thx Ty @firstname.lastname@example.org, all we can say is WOW. Also a big thanks to Frank @cyclonecoaster.com for everything- the cool shirts, and bringing us bikes for our last ride on the Balboa/Newport Beach to HB ride, you guys are great! @cyclingday@tripple3.
We're back in the frozen North now, but the pics will warm our hearts till Spring
