Excellent turnout for today's ride: Shawna, Matt, David & Alex, Beth & Bob, me and my longtime friend and college roommate, Bob Murphy. We had great weather and a nice route too, the classic Elfin Forest Ride.
But maybe sunshine, gentle breezes, great scenery, and rolling hills wouldn't have been a proper introduction to California Cycling without adding a bit of time on a single speed? So that's why Bob M was fortunate to experience the joy of a disintegrating derailleur just before the longest climb of the day. Oh yeaah... no quitting on a VVV ride: a chain break tool, connecting link, derailleur removal, and voila: we were golden. Just a simple matter of finishing 20 miles in 42x28 gearing... now that's a memorable bike ride!
Next week it's again time for Group Choice... ACHD Ride Date: Tuesday April 3, 2012 Time: 9:00am
