Sugar Shack, Huntington Beach by wildwes49

Wednesday, 16 August 2011:  Started today’s ride from Norwalk, CA and in just over a mile I started hearing a noise with each rotation of my wheel.  My first thought was that I had a broken spoke.  I have never broke a spoke before, and when I checked them I found that I still did not have a broken spoke.  I then rotated my wheel and found that a 2 in nail was sticking in my rear tire.  I removed the nail, repaired the flat and continued on my ride until I met with four of my cycling friends at the cross-over bridge for their usual ride to the Pacific Coast and down the coast to Huntington Beach.  The morning was cool but had too much marine layer which limited the view of the coast line.  We had breakfast at the Sugar Shack and then cycled back to our starting points along the same route.  You can view the details of todays ride by clicking on the link below:
