We had a great ride yesterday. I think it might be the first annual Lorenzo and Jerry A bday ride! What a beautiful day! We started of with 15 and then 3 others caught up with us after we started. We had Jerry A, Karl, Robin, Chuck, Frankie, Karen, Steve G., Lorenzo, Steve A.,Dave M.,Steve P, Charlie, Mark, Guest Phil, David L, Joyce Chang, Christine, and myself
I'm not sure how far out front most of the riders were or who was riding with who as Dave M, Dave L, and Lorenzo and I were at the back solving the world problems as we rode up to Tin Barn....I only hope you appreciate all of our extremely hard efforts to improve the world we live in! We all descended safely down Hauser with some of us stopping at the water stop at Ratna Ling with most of the group riding on with a group of about 7 of us at the back which was Frankie, Lorenzo, David M, Steve A, Robin, Karen, and myself. There was a mix up after the rest stop at King Ridge and Tin Barn. I asked for a regroup at Timber Cove Rd. and some thought it was going to be at Ft. Ross Store so the back group became the front group with the now back group waiting for the now front group back at the store! :-) I'm going to have to clarify the stops a little more on the next adventure. In the past we have stopped at the Ft. Ross Store but a different route and on a colder day at the coast. We had quite a wait at the top of Ft. Ross Rd. from the coast for the rest of the group and especially David L as he was waiting a bit longer at the store for us to come by as he didn't want to leave us behind. What a good guy! We returned the favor at the top of Ft. Ross Rd.
After most of the group showed up at the top of Ft. Ross Rd. I sent the ones who had to get back to get on their way and the rest of us who were going to lunch at Northwood lodge after the ride hung around waiting for Phil and David to get up the hill. Karl went back down to make sure they were coming and David M also went down the hill a ways to join them. We then made it back down into Cazadero where 11 of us went to a late lunch at Northwood and planned out some more adventures as Karl also has a Bday coming up. I think we had 4 or so who have never climbed up Ft. Ross Rd. from the coast and they did a great job. I think it was Bday boy Jerry A, Robin, Karen, and Chuck...oh yeah and Phil!
It was a great day for all and thanks of all of those that could make the ride and make it so enjoyable and I'm sorry so many couldn't make this beautiful ride I've attached some pics just in case some of you missed them earlier.
Here are some pics from the ride.
Enjoy the day,
