Riding With the Southern California Tandems

Happy times for us in SoCal because we have found a new tandem club to ride with.  Sad times for us, and for the club as a popular couple, Melinda and John Hansen, is moving to Colorado, and today is their farewell ride.

There is a large turnout of 8 tandems (one more joins us at our rest stop) and at least the same amount of half bikes.

Much of the spirited ride to Long Beach is on the PCH, at traffic lights, we gather and I get the opportunity to  snap some pictures of the group.






Our mid-ride rest stop is at Polly’s Gourmet Coffee in Long Beach.


We share a cinnamon bun, knowing that Jonathan Gerber has a surprise waiting for us at the end of the ride.

We roll out of Long Beach, on the return to Bob Henry Park in Newport Beach.



What a fun celebration, pizza and libations are waiting for us! We eat, drink and wish John and Melinda well.
