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 Leisurely Ride Around Town

The weather was warm and nice as Meme and I headed from my house through Thompson Creek Trail. Not much bicycle traffic on the way to Mt. Baldy Road, just a few joggers and people walking their dogs. At the top of Mills, the park and ride was packed with cars. A good day to hike Claremont Wilderness Trail. From Mt. Baldy Road we headed down Padua to Arrow Hwy and through the Claremont Colleges.

“Life is either a great adventure or nothing.”

As we entered the Colleges, we met up with two students getting ready for an epic ride to San Diego. They were from the colleges and soon to be graduated. I could tell by their enthusiasm they were excited on many levels. Nice, their next stage of life is literally starting with a voyage!

We rode through the colleges, and completed a lap around Bonelli Park. I tackled Cannon Drive and met up with Meme on the other side of Puddingstone Drive.

After Bonelli we decided to conclude our ride and headed home.
