Finally, today we started riding, our group is 21 strong, including 5 lads from across the pond, the U.K. & Scotland, as well as 5 galant ladies. It s a great group and today’s ride gave us a chance to get our feet wet together. Manhattan Beach to Riverside wasn’t the most scenic, especially for the Brits. They had enough of a challenge riding on the right side of the road. We did finish through a gorgeous section of Riverside, classic old California, orange groves, and beautiful old homes. Tomorrow we start to take on the desert, next stop downtown Indio.
