California Golde cycle touring video

I just watched this video and found it well done and humorous. Since we have a few CA riders here, I thought I’d share it here:

Oh, and when Greg returns from tour, or maybe while he is on tour, I dare him to try out the move shown at about 1.38.

    Spectacular archival footage! I’m utterly shocked you discovered this ancient film of the notorious Mad Marauders. Look carefully and you’ll recognize Kathleen, Jack, Janet, John, Sabrina, and Old Grumble-Face from our wild younger days. Nowadays we tend to keep more of our clothes on; for that, all are thankful.

      Oh yes, I was surprised to see that footage on vimeo, but I thought you’d enjoy reliving those rides. Boy, did the landscape look dry in the archival footage – sorry you endured all that rain last winter and spring, but the looks like it really needed it!

      Yes, I really liked the spirit of the video, even if it’s not a ride any, or many, of us would do.

    I just saw the video. What a hoot! I sure wish you hadn’t DARED me to surf on the top of my bike. That’s just plain cruel. Had you just SUGGESTED I should do it, I could ignore your suggestion and move on. A dare pretty much forces me to do it. At least you gave me the option to perform the feat after my tour. I’d hate to have to complete my tour with compound fractures and broken teeth.

    I didn’t realize we’d been filmed, Bill. In fact, I don’t remember that ride in Yosemite at all, but then that’s how it was in those daze…. Yeah, clothes not optional now.

    Thanks for the laugh, Em.

    Archival footage? Some hints of 2019 in there. Yosemite is a spectacular place alright.
