those F'in bikes are always breaking down or someone is kicking the S*it out of them to get them to start..

All kidding aside Todd can fill us all in on what the breakdown was and what it took to fix it. I heard it might be a stuck starter or something like that. He was towed back by Mark and they were HAULING !!

I didn't say a word about flats on the trip. Everyone knows what happens when you start talking about something. However, I was able to give my tubes to my buddies!

Here is a few more from the trip...

VIVA Mexico!

Signing the book at Coco's Corner

BAJA 1000 Route Arrows

Todd and "One Peso" - he invented the helecopter



Todd being towed for a total of 300 miles

Hey Paul (Just Paul),
Is that guy - One Peso - the same guy we bumped into back in April? Remember that bum? He said he was a co-founder of Cisco Systems.

SF - La Gloria - SF

Took a quick trip to from SF to La Gloria. Started at 11 and found it surprisingly warm, "snow" notwithstanding. Gas in Hollister, and down 25. I had some ambition to try old Hernandez Road but a late start and the thought of a (possible) freezing soggy trip home prevailed against and I hung a right onto La Gloria.

The road was in very good shape, recently graded, and with the exception of a few surprise mud patches already quite dry. Dropping down into the Salinas valley was a bit more exciting. For some reason, the road has about a 20-degree rake towards the gutter. I guess that is better than the opposite direction, but it made pretty much every right hand corner wildly off camber. Throw in some leftover snow, mud, and Bridgestone tires and it was an interesting trip down.

Perhaps I'll try running it uphill next time and combine it with some Clear Creek stuff. And an earlier start.

When you pop out on 25 from Gloria, head south five or so miles and turn left on San Benito Lateral.

About a half mile down take a right on Old Hernandez. Don't let the fun just stop there..

If you found la gloria to be that "exciting", you probably don't want to be going into clear creek alone.
