Angela, the owner's daughter, took a lot of photos during the day. Below are a few to get the feel of the day to compliment Don's words, but you can view all of the photos here. Enjoy!
Thanks to everyone who came out to meet Bob; we hope you all had a great time.
Bob didn't travel with his bike so Velo Pasadena kindly provided him with one.
Here he's doing a few last minute adjustments before he's off with the group.
Don looks like he's all set to get out and enjoy a ride on a gorgeous Sunday morning!
There were about 150 people who joined Bob and Don on the ride.
Bob's all set to go!
Here's the front of the ride as they got going just a little ways from the shop.
I just love this shot. Looks like a pro peloton coming down the road.
Check it out. Everyone following the rules of the road
and stopping at the red light! Safety first!
Everyone seems to be having a good time.
According to Don, Hrach (store owner) moved around the group
often making sure everyone was riding comfortably and having a good time.
The ladies were out in full force for the ride, too. But...where's Bob?
There he is - with a bunch of new riding buddies.
And there he is again in a different part of the group.
And...with even more people. Looks like Hrach wasn't the only
one doing some meeting and greeting during the ride.
Bob, Tori and Hrach look like they are ready for some BBQ after the 20-miler!
Bob signed autographs and chatted with folks that were on the ride and some that just stopped by. In all, about 300 people were hanging out at Velo Pasadena throughout the day.
Hrach and Bob reminisced over "the old days"
