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

A Ride to Rialto and Back

Demi’s Sunday Ride

I wasn’t sure where and with who I was going to ride with this morning. I assumed I was going solo today but Demi sent a group text the night before and I decided to join him for a ride out to Rialto. Overall it was a chill ride, talking pace. Talking pace rides are important. It gives you time to talk to your friends and learn a little something about them. Talking pace also gives your legs a break.

Choking Hazard

I started Bud’s feeling fine then after the first laps I got caught in a coughing frenzy. I am not sure what happened but I could not stop and the group quickly pulled away from me. I pulled over to drink some water and continued hacking away. I called the ride short and headed home trying to clear what ever got caught in my throat. This morning I still feel like something is still in my throat. I must have ate some bug and it got stuck in my air passage.

Los Perrones

Let’s Go Perrones!

Richard O kept begging me to join this group again. He said he’d buy me a coffee in Newport but sadly he never did. Dude what’s up with that? Either way the ride was fast and legit. Oscar, Juan, Mario and I finished together and we traded off pulls for most of the ride. I managed an average speed of 22.8+ mph for the out and back ride.

Thirsty Thursday

Back at it!

Last night I joined the Thirsty Thursday ride. I used to do the ride regularly but stopped because, at the time, I’d get dropped A LOT. Over time this ride got so fast as more and more riders joined in on the hustle. I am a little healthier and faster these days so I decided to rejoin the group. Yep its fast. I have to give a shout out to Warren because he did a great job keeping us together and the pace steady until Cienega. On Mountain Ave, Jason P turned up the pace and it was sayonara. On the way back Jake (I think that’s his name) and I traded off pulls to Euro Cafe. We managed to pick up a few riders who were left in Jason Paez’s wake. Thirsty Thursday was awesome.

Bud's Ride

Go short or go long, it’s all good.

Bud’s ride has two options. Go long and head up and over Via Verde to San Dimas Ave. Go short and cut through Raging Waters Drive across the dam.
