Ride a bike, share your experience and love. When I go biking, I repeat a mantra of the day's sensations: bright sun, blue sky, warm breeze, blue jay's call, ice melting and so on. This helps me transcend the traffic, ignore the clamorings of work, leave all the mind theaters behind and focus on nature instead. I still must abide by the rules of the road, of biking, of gravity. But I am mentally far away from civilization. The world is breaking someone else's heart. ~Diane Ackerman

Accomplishment of the year - 100 miles

Since I started riding I have had many great accomplishments.  The first was actually riding, then it was Marshal Canyon, then Potato, then Baldy, etc.  Well Saturday, I realized another goal of riding 100 miles. 

Thanks Jose, Oscar and Rommel for the company.  It was a great trip. 

We headed out from Fairplax and Puddingstone Drive at about 6:30 am.  We rode through the streets of Orange County until we were able to hop on Santa Ana River Trail. From SART, it was a speedy ride into Newport.

At Newport we rested for about 30 minutes.  I adjusted my headset and we ate at some beach diner. 

From Newport we rode up Pacific Coast Highway to Seal Beach to catch San Gabriel Valley Trail.  From SGVT is was a long 50 miles back to the cars. 

SGVT was well paved and we took it all the way to Sierra Madre.  There were a few hills on Sierra Madre and at the tail end of 100 miles ever the smallest ant hills can hurt.  We managed and at this point I started to get a second wind.  I challenged both Jose and Oscar to sprints on Route 66, San Dimas Canyon and Bonita.

Here is a lis of 10 things sex and cycling have in common:

1. If feels good to change positions once in a while, it will make a long ride more comfortable.

2. Good legs help Everyone knows good legs can go a long way in improving your ride!

3. Chains, velcro, lycra, rubber, leather, and chamois... may improve intensity of your ride.

4. Falling off is embarrassing. But it happens to everyone!

5. You have to keep pumping to get anywhere, but it will be worth the effort.

6. A little lube helps keep things running smoothly. Parts start to break if they get too dry!

7. You never really forget how.. It's just like riding a bike!

8. Most people spend more time talking about it than actually doing it, which is a bit sad if you ask me.

9. You can do it alone, but it's more fun with your friends. The more the better!

10. With practice you can ride for hours without getting off. So make sure you ride everyday!
