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

Knobby Tire Series at Bonelli Park

A few weeks ago I ran into Antonio, MTB extraordinaire. He handed me a flier for the Knobby Tire Series at Bonelli Park. This is a three race series at Bonelli Park, June 16, 23 and 30. I decide what the heck, I'll do it. It was a good course, technical and with lots of climbs. Racing my 26" rigid MTB kicks my butt every time. At one point, I was so tired, I lost control on the decent and crashed. The bumps really wear me out!

Hey that's me on the far right.


Antonio was a Beast. He took First!


Antonio and I before the race.



Antonio's bike of choice, a Cannondale 29er.


The Family came out to cheer me on.

Completely forgot about that, darn it. Good job picking up a placing.

See you there.

Antonio is an animal on the trails!
