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

Pomona to Chantry Flats

Today we rode from Pomona to Chantry Flats. I initially planned to ride from Pomona to GMR to Mt Baldy, but after speaking with our group we decided on Chantry Flats. I have to admit, I was a little hesitant to go on this ride. Pomona to Chantry Flats sounds far!

It turned out to be a great ride. There is a bit of climbing but not as epic as a Baldy ride. For me the ride was fast getting to Santa Anita Ave. Once we entered the National Forest, Chantry Flats is only about two miles in.

The last time I was at Chantry Flats was on a Hay Delivery when I worked at my local feed store.

I was getting tired climbing up to Chantry Flats. I must have asked five people how much further until the pack station. None of them ever told me. Most just looked at me and laughed. WTF, No really I wanted to know!

It was overcast 100% of the way up. This was the best panorama shot I could get while climbing up the mountain.

This is where Santa Anita turns into Chantry Flats Road. See at the top (About 2.5 miles away).

On the way home the Montrose Group was heading in the opposite direction.
