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

Thanksgiving and Post Thanksgiving Ride Report

My Thanksgiving ride was nice and easy.  I drove, yes drove, to Glendora Mountain Road and Sierra Madre. Parked and rode up to the maintenance shed.  I left early and didn't see any riders until I made it to the top of Monroe Truck Trail. 

Heading down, and below the first saddle, was when I saw more and more riders heading up.  It was nice, John P was heading up so I turned around and spoke with him for a while.

At the bottom of GMR, I loaded up my car and headed home for an early Thanksgiving feast with the family.

Saturday, I decided to tackle GMR to the maintenance shed again.  This time I flatted at MM 10.49.  Actually my rear tire blew out, since this was the second rear blow out in two days, I decided to turn around and head home.  The first blow out was at home while my bike sat unattended.  Something wasn't right, so I decided not to chance it. 

Well, I feel like I have more riding in my legs but this extended weekend is coming to a close.  I guess its "Roller Time" until next weekend.

(In case anyone cares, these were track bike adventures! So do I sell the Cervelo Soloist?)
