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

Glendora Mountain Road, No Cars Allowed

GMR is closed to motorized traffic from July 2 thru July 5. I decided to take advantage of this as GMR is a much different place when all the cars and motorcycles are gone.

I set out by 6 am from my house and was at the maintenance shed by 7:30. There were very few riders out and the day was heating up quickly. I'm glad I left early.

I did manage to ride a few miles with Mark. He caught me somewhere around Newman's and it was a nice temporary distraction. He's a Triathlete and is training for an upcoming Ironman. Good luck!

Overall, the ride was quiet. It was very nice to be up in the mountains alone. By 8:30, I was dropping into Mt Baldy Village and by 9:15 I was home.

What a great start of the day.
