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

70 Miles - Santiago Canyon

It was a Personal Record Day for me.  I rode 70 miles and I feel great!  Michael and I set out early, 6:30 am from Anahiem Hills (Yorba Park) and headed to Santiago Canyon.  From there we rode to Irvine then to Laguna Niguel.  At Laguna we stopped and rested for a little while before heading to SART.  From SART, we headed back to Anahiem Hills.

It was a great ride, the weather was cool and on SART we ran into Mr. Beanz and Gina.  

My day started at 4 am.  That's when my alarm went off, kindly telling me to get my a$$ out bed and start preparing for my EPIC ride.  Above is a picture of the moon at a very early 5:45 am.  5:45 am, that's when I arrived at Michael's house. 

Santiago Canyon proved to be a scenic ride, with rolling hills, cattle, horses, and large ranch homes.  

The halfway point, Laguna Niguel.  Michael and I stopped for a food and bathroom break.  

We met up with a pack of riders who pulled us thru Newport to SART. 

A flock of seagulls on SART.  Something spooked them and watch out for gifts from above!

Mr. Beanz and Gina!  We ran into them on SART.  We chatted and I snapped a picture of the famous Mr. Beanz.  Gina and Beanz are two great people and larger than life personalities.  I was hoping to see them on SART.
