Hello Fans, Friends and Family

Sunday, February 13th:  This weekend was spent in Palm Springs.  We took our 12 year old grandson, Ty, with us.  Ty and I met up with my brother-in-law, Bob, his son Mark, our friends Don, Erik and 2 of his friends.  Friends from our bike club, Mike, Richard and Linda also showed up.  We all did the 55 mile ride.  There were an estimated 10,000 riders for this event.  In the first picture we are getting ready for the ride.  The next picture is of the riders starting out on the ride.  The following picture is of my friend Mike.  He is the second rider wearing a SCOR jersey.  I then have 3 photos of my grandson, Ty, one front view and two from the rear.  On the 55 mile ride they had 3 rest stops.  There were a lot of riders at each rest stop to help refresh the riders.  We witnessed quite a few riders fixing flat tires and a few who had experienced accidents.  None of the riders in our group had any problems except for Don who had a mechanical problem at the start of the ride and was unable to continue.  The weather was great and the event was well organized.  Looking forward to doing it again next year.
