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

The Bicycle Family Rides to Downtown Claremont

Last weekend, I took the family on our first epic ride. We rode four miles to downtown Claremont for lunch and back. The kids did great, obeying all the rules of the road. We weaved thru the older homes between Foothill and Bonita, to our final destination, Downtown Claremont. Along the way, Jamie admired some of the homes and even did a walk thru one "Open House".

Our goal was to eat at Saca's but sure enough they were closed on Sunday. What restaurant CLOSES on a Sunday? We ended up eating at a pizza place in the heart of downtown Claremont. The food was okay.

Obey all the rules of the road. "Stay on your right hand side!"

Smile for the camera!

Adam absolutely loves his bike. He was the big brother and in his Thomas the Train backpack held Natalie's bottle, diapers and wipes. He also had our bike lock stashed in there too!

Natalie takes a snooze while mommy looks at an open house.

It was a great ride 8 mile ride. The kids did great and on the way home we stopped off at 21 Choices for some well earned frozen yogurt.
