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

San Gabriel River Trail

This was the first time this year riding with Annette and funny enough, it wasn't on GMR. GMR is Annette's stomping ground and after a little coaxing she agreed to SGVT. From her house we headed out towards the base of Azusa Canyon. It was 9 am and still very cold. I was riding my fixed gear bike and going Sierra Madre was a challenge.

We entered SGVT from the base of Azusa Canyon and headed south to Santa Fe Dam. At the dam we stopped a short while, took a few pictures before starting up our trek to the 10 FWY.

At the 10 fwy we turned around. Somewhere between the 10 and Santa Fe Dam we stopped to help a fellow cyclist from DT Los Angeles. He flatted twice and had two failed attempts filling his tubes with a CO2. Annette had a mini pump to led and soon after the guy was back on both wheels.
