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

BikeForums.net, OC Rebels, A titanium GT and a custom Seven

Lots of riders on the road today. As I approached the Base of GMR, a group of riders were heading up too. This group came from bikeforums.net and consisted of 8 - 15 people. I rode up with Victor, and Hans until about Fork plus 6. After that Victor dropped back and Hans picked up the pace. I caught up to Mr. Beans and together we rode to Mt. Baldy Village.

OC Rebels were out on the mountain too. Great riders and hopefully I can hook up with them and the people from bikeforums.net as well.

Meme, I came across a SWEEEET titanium GT road bike that is just up your alley. The guy was part of OC Rebels and owned a few titanium GT's. I snapped a picture for you.

There was also a woman from OC Rebels who has a custom titanium Seven that was completely tricked out.

Bikeforums.net had a support vehicle and I was able to refill one water bottle at the maintenance shed.

This is my fourth trip to Mt. Baldy and it gets easier every time. On the way down I had a scare with some tumbling rocks falling onto the road. One of these rocks was about the size of a soccer ball and it tumbled down in front of me while I cruised down the mountain at excess of 40 miles per hour. I missed it but it scared the $h!T out of me.

It was nice seeing both Annette and Matt at the maintenance shed and there were not many motorcyclist out this morning.
