Today I met up with the Old Kranks at Gelson’s in Westlake Village. There were quite a number of cyclists there, Allen who I road with on the WAR ride a few weeks ago. I rode with four other guys. They were all older than me, Earl being 83! And then I met Stephen. He is from Massachusetts. It is amazing the people I am meeting.

We first did a warm up ride around Westlake Village and then we went back to Gelson’s and picked up Ben. We then rode all around Westlake Village. California is really a beautiful state. I am in awe when I ride my bike. We did have an uphill climb, two of them, but I made both of them at a pretty good speed. We then made our way back to Gelson’s. It was a beautiful ride. We rode a little over 34 miles.
