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

Ventura, Lake Casitas, Gibraltar Road - What Epic Looks Like

It was a very long epic day. We rolled at 7:30 am from Ventura. We were making great time then Gibraltar Road happened. It was hot, we had mechanical issues and got off course a few times. By 117 miles, we made it back to the cars.

Notes: Parked at Lowes in Ventura. Visited Lake Casitas. Rode up Gibraltar Road. Remember to take enough water for climb.

GMR: Shack and Back

This ride pushed me into the over 300 miles per week club. Thanks Chris for joining me and it was nice to see so many Bicycle Friends on the road today. On the way back home we saw Gregory heading into the mountains

It’s a hot one today so stay hydrated out there.

Two Wheel Tuesday (2WT)

Some fast folks showed up to 2WT today and pretty much dominated all the hills.  Cannon Ave., Live Oak  and Padua were all but lost to the fasted of the bunch but it was fun chasing them.  Thanks for everyone who showed up for the pain.










Crystal Lake to Mt Baldy

Monday we set out to ride up to Crystal Lake and then back home.  Once we got up to the Crystal Lake Cafe Attila was pushing us to ride up to Hwy 39 and then to Dawson's Saddle.  After Dawson's Saddle, he wanted to head to La Cañada and ultimately complete the Circle of Doom route.  I didn't have it in me but made to the call to my wife to let her know my ride it going to be longer than usual.  Fortunately/Unfortunately, I wasn't able to get a hold of my wife, so Warren and I decided to head home.  Warren wanted to ride back home via East Fork to Mt Baldy.  It was a hard ride and a ton of climbing but we did it.  It was a hard day, but with Warren's encouragement, I was able to complete the ride.
