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

GMR to Mt Baldy (Didn't make it to the lifts this time)

Its been a busy work week and by Friday I was exhausted. I officially stopped working and logged off my computer Friday at 10 pm. I was beat and with so much more work at hand, I pondered forgoing my weekend ride. I had no commitments with meeting other riders and decided on a lone ride up GMR. I needed the quiet calm to refuel my exhausted soul.

Beep, Beep, Beep, my alarm went off at 5:00 am. "Ugh, do I really want to ride?"

6:30 am, I'm up, fueled and heading to GMR. I'm not going to push it today. Just a nice ride up the mountain.

Somewhere before the first saddle of GMR, I met Kroy. He came up behind me at a decent clip. We got to talking and it turns out he lives fairly close. We ended up riding together the whole way home.

Hey Kroy, lets ride again, send me an email.

On GRR we met Mike. He told us a funny story about riding to the Ski Lifts and some others about the places and races he's seen.

7 am and the Street Luge guys are ready to make it up the mountain.
