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

Anaheim Hills to Newport - FIXED

Today Kevin and I rode to Newport.  We kept the pace lively with the help of two other guys and made it to Newport in no time.

It was a great day of riding.  Clear skies and not too hot.

This is us at the beach.  Kevin rode geared while I opted for to ride fixed gear.  

What a champ. Kevin, with the help of two other guys, kept the pace up.  We had a decent paceline all the way to Newport.  

The beach is in sight!  Clear blue skies!  Nice day to be at the beach.

Once we entered Newport we headed to the beach for a few photos, proof we made it!  Then it was off to the a liquor store up the way to buy, corn nuts, Gatorade and get some ice for our water bottles.

Kevin had plans to meet Tina down in Newport but it was early so I convinced him to ride back to Yorba Regional Park with me.

Kevin flatted on the way back to Yorba.  Something slashed right through his tire so we swapped out the tube and I patched the gash with some chewing gum.  MacGyver's got nothing on me! This repair got him back to the car, I bet Kevin doesn't even need to buy a new tire now!

Chainlink and a Paceline - There were four of us heading to the beach.  We all took turns pulling, which got us to Newport in record time.
