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 and then a Family Bike Ride

On Monday, I woke up early and headed to GMR Fixed. It was a quick ride and on the way up I only saw a handful of people.  Skateboarders and a few cyclist were out.  It was a quiet ride, just me, GMR and my Surly Steamroller.  More than ever I am enjoying my fixie.  Its so simple and comfortable.  Riding it any distance is completely rewarding. I road to East Fork and in great time.  I was home by 8:30 am. 

Once I got home, I changed, packed some food and headed to Griffith Park in Claremont with the family.  It was a beautiful day, and the kids played for a few hours while Jamie and I relaxed, listened to music and read.
