SART 6/14/14

56.5 miles on SART. We had planned 60 but some stupid girl in the parking lot wasted our time as we suited up for the ride. We are just about ready to leave when Gina says she hears somebody screaming. So we listen for a bit then we see this girl running down the corridor of the little strip mall where we started on Imperial (lot behind In-N-Out near the river). She runs our way screaming her head off so Gina asks if she's OK. She is screaming hysterical but Gina finally calms her down. I thought she might have gotten robbed while working one of the small shops. But turns out she is having a fight with her boyfriend. He then walks up mumbling something but Gina is worried that maybe he was beating her. So I asked her if he had hit her and she said no. So he tries to walk up and I tell him get away, go stand over there away from us. Girl finally calms down enough to ask for a phone to call her mother, this girl is about 21. Sure, I give her my phone but all of a sudden, she can't remember anybody's pone number. So she changes her mind and asks if Gina could just walk her to her car, if she can just sit there for a minute, she will be OK. She had just ditched her car in the middle of a drive lane in the small strip mall. So all this takes about 20 minutes, the time time the dude is just standing off in the distance saying, "I didn't touch her!".

So Gina walks her to her car then she begins to leave so we mount our bikes. Just as we are getting to ride off, the stupid girl drives right  up to the dude, rolls down her window about 6 inches and starts yelling at the guy. WTF! So he starts shouting back then she drives up 5 feet slams on her brakes, starts shouting more, then repeats the cycle. Gina says it looks like he is bothering her again. Are you serious? She was clear and free to leave in her car, she chose to sit there and play games, quit wasting my time! Stupid girl!

So we left after our scheduled time which included Green River. So now pressed for time we turned around at Gypsum Cyn in order to meet Mark and Gail at the scheduled time. Once there Ron and Dixie rolled up on their tandem. They joined us for a short section of the trail then headed off on their own. We continued to the coast with Mark and Gail. Of course we hit the presidential detour which of course was not properly marked at the end of the detour so we got in a couple extra miles looking for a way to cross the riverbed. How much can you really expect from this president though ha ha!

At Edna Park we ran into Rick. Hadn't seen him much lately. Turns out he had some of the evil C and has been doing treatments. Hate to hear that but we wish him a complete recovery!

First few seconds crack me up! Gina points something out on the road so I watched over and over and over again. I could not see what she was pointing out so I asked her. She said she was giving a peace sign to the recorder. Oh OK ha ha! Funny cause a few seconds later Jose looks back like WTF did I miss something?! Ha ha ha ha!

After the ride, Mark and Gail treated Gina and I to a burger. Of course they offered more at the burger cafe joint near Gypsum but we are cheeseburger special type people. I had never eaten there before but they were darn good. Fries were good too and reasonable prices for the combo. Thanks Mark and Gail! :-)

                                                                  Happy Jose?!

                                                   Mark and Gail riding with us today!

                                                                         Hi Mark!

                                  Gina wears my BA jersey for me at times. This 2XL is like
                        6 sizes too small for me so I have to beg her to wear it just so I can see it!
