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

SoCal Cross Fever #3, Hansen Dam (Juniors)

The Kids were out in full force today at Hansen Dam. It was the third SoCal Cross Fever Race and it was a joy to see all the kids out racing. These kids were tough, jumping over barriers, sprinting up hills and descending down steep hills. The leader was a good five to eight minutes ahead of the kid in second place. There were all ages from very little, 8 years old to high school kids. Boys and girls alike battled it out at Hansen Dam.

According to the MC, the Juniors is the fasted growing category. Is there a future Tour De France winner in the field?

This little guy was so cute lugging his bike over the barriers. He looked to be 7 to 8, and was a real trooper. I think I'll have to sign up Adam in a few years!
