Saturday I had to go to Sacramento. It is always nice to get a ride in along the way. At the last minute, my old roomate from college, Eric V. and I put together a ride. We met at the parking lot of the foresthill loop just above Auburn, CA. As usual, always good to see " Das Voosen" but what a surprise when he rolled the bike out of the back of his truck! It was from when we were roomates! The Klein! I remember the day that Eric got those spinergy wheels for it! I was soooo in bike envy! Eric tells me, that now, people smirk at him with the wheels. He has kept this bike as his back up bike and states " I just cant sell it. I could probably get $500.00 on ebay for it, and I have put so much more into it" Well, I would never sell it at this point. It still looks great in my opinion.
While Holly and the doggie went for a run, Eric and I banged out the Foresthill loop.It was fast and fun. Warm but shady in the cover of the trees. I told Eric he needed to keep the bike and tell anyone who asks that he actually was the stunt coordinator for Pacific Blue
Eric acted like he had never heard of Pacific Blue... C'mon Eric, come clean. You know thats why you bought the wheels braaaa!
If that first link was not enough... here's more!
