imageIt is always too early waking up for this ride.  Last night we hung out with Jimmy Mac and his wife Gale.  I love those two.  We went to our standard Italian restaurant, but it was closed on a Monday.  Go figure.

Anyway, I am a bit underslept and chilled.  I guess it has been super hot all fall here in Somis and the weather just broke.  It is a damp 45 now, which is California terms is -10 degrees.

I’m not exactly sure how far the ride is today.  80 something miles, but with tons of climbing. Long sustained climbs.  I’m not sure how I’m going to feel, so I’ll just play it by ear.  There are over 1000 people riding, so there is always someone wanting to go my speed.

Okay, this is a super way to spend a Tuesday, riding the canyons of the Santa Monica Mountains.  I can’t really think of anything else I’d rather be doing, which I don’t take for granted.

Jimmy Mac has a tiki room in his house in Somis. It is super cool.

Jimmy Mac and Sue out riding yesterday at sunset. We got a little wet, but it felt pretty good.

    1000 people show up for a ride on a TUESDAY? Amazing. Jimmy Mac’s one of the nicest guys in the biz. I hope SoCal’s flood season’s not too severe this year as I’ll be out there in about 5 weeks. I hope to avoid the other 3 SoCal seasons (fire, earthquake and riot) as well!

    Jimmy! I used to work with JMac back in the Husky days. Pink shirts and keyboard necktie. Always smiling and rockin the latest new wave music. Never a bad word to say about anyone. Great influence, great memories.
