Friends and Re-Cycle Part 2

20070526
EVH and I ride from UCI down to the Newport - Costa Mesa Back Bay, break at Kean Coffee, and finish the Back Bay loop then return to UCI. Awesome ride for me, as it doesn't have the intensity of the previous day.

Oh, here's a map of the ride from earlier in the year:



Ride w/ EVH: UCI - Back Bay
Distance: 15 miles
Elapsed Time: 1h 30min
Pace: 6m 2sec miles
Avg. Speed: 9.9 mi/h
Max Speed: 29.9mph
Calories: 820




Again, a much less intense ride, more geared for EVH and my recovery than anything else.

We actually took over an hour break in the middle of the ride while at Kean. The perfect melding of iced turkish soy latte w/cardamom and snarky comments about the people coming into Kean. I was on the lookout for the deconstructed beach bum outfit. That might require some explanation. I was looking for the classic casual beach-wear ensemble of sandals, jeans or shorts, t-shirt, and sunglasses, but with every element being an expensive version of itself. $40 t-shirt, $50 shorts, $70 sandals, $100 sunglasses, etc.

The highlight was when I pointed out a very attractive woman who almost fit the bill.
1: Her olive top doesn't quite look pricey enough. But those definitely aren't $20 Target jeans.
2: Well, it's not a $20 ass.
1: You're right.
It's a very special kind of gal-pal who will girl-watch with you. You're the best, EVH.

Cadence vs. Heartrate:

Again, a much less intense ride than the day before. I'm barely breaking 100 beats per minute, which means I'm not working much. There's a spike just after the 35 minute mark which is the climb on Dover, just before we turn off to Kean. The spike at the 1 hour mark is a quick climb after we broke off of Irvine Ave to the Upper Newport Bay Regional Park. There was another spike around 1:20 which was a climb on the UCI campus which snuck up on me.

Good times!

    LOL. That made me chuckle. :-)

    I hate biking on anything besides perfectly flat ground. I think I'd enjoy bike riding more in Iowa or something like that. But I like Kean's.

  2. Let me tell you, it put a grin on my face for the rest of the week.

    And I swear the gal in the olive top of totally checking me out. EVH can attest to the fact that when she left, she very conspicuously did NOT glance in my direction, which I found so suspicious! </fantasy>
