My Quick Trip to New Jersey

Last weekend I flew back to the tri-state area for a quick trip to fix some minor computer problems for a client. I was able to stay in New Jersey and enjoy some of the local area rides.

I was invited to the Asian indoor Cycling championships as a special guest.

Rosarito Ensenada 50 Mile Fun Ride

So we took a trip to Mexico for the semi-annual 50 mile Rosarito to Ensenada Bike Ride.


The giant Mexican Flag at the end of the ride (Finish Line Fiesta)

This was a nicely organized ride that takes place approximately 30 miles south of the San Diego/Mexico border in Rosarito.

It was a fairly well organized ride and the tips we received from the veterans were very useful. It was somewhat intimidating to say the least when we pulled up to the starting line only to see 6,000 riders ahead of us. Basically since this is a fun ride and not a race, there is a wide spread in rider experience. The first 20 miles is a hazard course -- you need to be constantly vigilant of all of the people weaving in and out. Around the 25 mile point, there is "El Tigre" that starts to thin out the pack as you go ascend 800 feet on a nice 7% grade. Andrea (the wifey) and I both made it up without walking, which was our primary objective. What they fail to mention are the 2 climbs after this one that are no walk in the park either. We finished the course in three hours and fifteen minutes.

Soccer Humor

Here is some soccer humor. Since it's World Cup 2006 time, this is always a good one to show.

Real Madrid vs. L.A. Galaxy - Part III - It's Political

I thought you "Association Football" types would like to see some of the
shots I took from the Real Madrid / LA Galaxy game.

I was five rows away from Real's bench. Totally killer. Zidane is the
real deal. He made a lot of Galaxy players look pretty silly.

PS - I was in Madrid in '94 when they first called up Raul to the first
team (at 17).
