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

Mountain Unicycling at Romero Canyon Santa Barbara

This came over from UniGeezer the other day.  This guy is crazy.  I first met him two years ago at the Fargo Street Hill Climb.

"They say things happen in "3's". Well on Labor day Monday, I got my three! It was a 220 mile round trip to Santa Barbara, this time to Romero canyon.

#1 was a bad ankle sprain when I dropped to a slanted rock and had an inversion sprain.
#2 was a super painful calf injury when I dismounted off the back and my calf got skewered on the handle of my quick release collar, that somehow was partly open!
#3 happened when I finished the ride and got to my car. I wanted to pull it into a shady spot to change into some dry clothes. As I backed into a spot, I smacked into a frickin tree that was in my blind spot! Did about $700 damage. Other than all that, everything went great!"
