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

Mike and I hit up the local trails.

CRAZY LEGS - It was a great turnout this evening. Jose Rigoberto Orellana got a well timed light and that was the last we saw of him until the second regroup. Two groups left at the same time, A's went long and B's turned on Glendora Ave. We regrouped at the old Cycle Associates business and together both groups headed home. I cut my ride short and turned on Fulton.

Encanto to Crystal Lake

Encanto to Crystal Lake (Okay I rode to Coldbrook Canyon). The temperature and tempo was great.

Coldbrook Canyon - Don't Drink the Water Notice

Coldbrook Canyon - Don't Drink the Water Notice. I know a lot of people stop here but the sign next to the water said, "Warning, avoid explosive diarrhea, DON DRINK THE WATER!"*
* Okay it didn't quite say that, but it did say don't drink the water.

Mild Montrose Ride

Whether it was a good idea or not, we decided on a "MILD" Montrose ride. Driving to Encanto I had my doubts about the air quality. It was dark and the roof of my car was sprinkled with ash from the fire off the 14 fwy. Needless to say, I made the drive to Encanto and met up with a few Bicycle Friends.

From there we rode into Pasadena to meet up with the 8 o'clock group.

The pace wasn't bad and there were the usual suspects. Mr. 69 year old made it another year and was announcing his new age of 70. There were the ALL Business folks, who don't talk and won't let you in, and then there was Mr. Self Appointed Ride Leader who would occasionally critique your riding style. "Do this, don't do that!" "Take up the full lane!" "Tempo, tempo!"

Then there was everyone else, the ones who just want ride and have a good time. Jose G made it out with John Khao. They both rode in from Claremont (Beasts I tell you!). Nathaniel Khoe and Tommy Oh met us along the way to Pasadena. Mike Khoe and Tai On met me at Encanto.

Overall the ride was fine, slower than the last time I did it. It was hot towards the end of the ride and the air quality wasn't great (I don't care what Mike's phone said).
