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

Riding with Bicycle Friends and a Solo trip to Mt. Baldy

Picture: Byran and Carl gearing up for a long ride.

Today it will be Fork plus 4 for Byran, Carl, Annette and Matt. We met at 7:15 am and soon after started up GMR. It was particularly busy with Motorcycles, Street Luge Riders and Car Clubs. I'm not sure who is more reckless the Motorcyclist or Street Luge Riders.

Again Carl makes it to the Maintenance Shed, in a few months he'll be ready for a Mt. Baldy Ride.

This is Byran at Fork plus 4. He did really well and took the lead from East Fork to this point.

Watch out! Street Luge Riders and Motorcyclist coming really close together. These guys are insane! I wonder who made it down the mountain first?

I made it to Mt. Baldy today. Unlike last week, I felt stronger and did get leg cramps.

Mile Marker 12.00. I made it!
