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

Bonelli Park with many Bicycle Friends

It was a cool overcast morning as I headed out to the Via Verde Park and Ride to meet with fellow cyclist. Instead of riding my bike to the Park and Ride, I opted to drive. The P&R is not far but on a single speed mountain bike the trek there would take to long. At a gear ratio of 34 X 19 (46.5 gear inches) is not the best ratio for flat terrain and would result in me "spinning out" to easily.

I got to the P&R about 5 minutes past 7:00 am with Alan, Mark and Carl ready to go. Alan and Mark brought two friends, Rony and Glen. Shortly after, Peter arrived and after a tire check, we were off. As we headed out Memo and Marco showed up.

On the trail, Alan busted a chain and while we fixed it, Memo and Marco caught up with us.

Memo and Marco showed up for our ride. Thanks guys for coming, I had a lot of fun.

Murky Water in Vietnam, anyone need to refill their water bottles? Vietnam is a part of Bonelli that's over grown and lots of tree cover. Its located next to the Motor home park.
