Roadies, 05-25-2014

Dan (left) left Los Angeles on Friday headed for Boston by July 1st.  Retro Bob (right) out for a kick-ass morning ride.  I had the pleasure of riding from Palm Springs with Dan to the Worsley-Indian intersection and riding back to Palm Springs with Retro Bob.  Bob was riding a beautiful classic Eddy Merckx bicycle. Being that it is the day before Memorial Day, this ride, like all of my rides, is dedicated to those who lost their lives in service to our country.
Today's ride: 30 miles, Indian - Worsley Loop, .
