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

Glendora Mountain Road to Mt. Baldy

My place a great staging area for GMR to Mt. Baldy Ride.

Go number 2 before you get caught up GMR with NO bathroom & NO Toilet Paper.

Christian can ride down Mt. Baldy Road without hands on handlebar.

Did it again, made good time.

No cramping.

Rode up GMR to Mt Baldy with new rider [To me], Gary of West Covina.

Sikad NG Bayan - Pedal for the Nation

Today we rode up GMR to Mt Baldy. We met up with some guys from a group called Sikad NG Bayan, who ride to rebuild! Their love for cycling has evolved into something more and building upon their individual talents and skills are working towards giving back and improving living conditions in the Philippines.

“Not everyone can draw up a plan or erect a structure from the ground up … Sikad NG Bayan, are among many Filipinos abroad who [have] the desire to give back to their motherland.”

Marshal Canyon - By Way of Cyclocross

After church today, I decided on a quick ride up Marshal Canyon to Cobal Canyon. It was a fast lonely ride. Clouds hung low and a cold breeze traveled down the canyon.

At 12 pm, few riders were left on the trail. I came across a number of people on horse back and speckles of hikers walking their dogs. I exited the trail at Mills and Baldy Road, then headed up Baldy Road to Padua. Heading back home, I was faced with a gnarly headwind.

Total Trip, about 16 miles.
