Inaugural M.O.M Run
1st Anniversary Run
|The first ride of 2005, and
the Inaugural run of M.O.M. (Men On Metamucil). Joanne made these shirts
for us (Tab's says "Just along for the ride") so we all wore

there were a lot more bikes. I think we counted about 30 total.

of bikes. Beautiful day to be out on the bike. Here we are, getting

the skull just in front of his leg.
|Coming out of the foothills and into the valley.||Took this picture on my way back from the Eureka
trip. You can see how brown it is in July compared to March.
|Great view of the Sutter Buttes. This was the first long ride for 2005, and it was perfect the whole day.|
