    Wow! Thanks everyone for joining me on this Monday morning ride to the beach. I was excited to see such a big turn out. We had a dozen Bobies take on a fast paced ride from the Big A to Newport Beach.

    Weather was great, although we hit a fog bank when we got to Huntington Beach (is it actually summer or did winter roll in this morning?). Luckily our route had us go north on Dover as the NB Police closed down the south bound PCH at Dover (Not sure what the issue was).

    Kean Coffee will have to wait for another trip as the line was out the door. We did get to stop for some chocolate croissants at C'est Si Bon before heading back for a hammerfest up the SART back to Anaheim.

    Great to meet some new folks (Barry, Colen, Linda). Great to ride with my hammerfest crew as well! Riley, hope you got some cups on the ride! I was spit out like a left over rocket booster on the side of the road when you zipped by me...LOL!
