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 to Ice House Canyon (Geared)

After being sick and entirely off the bike for 6 days, I was chopping at the bit to get some type of ride in.  Saturday I watched the CX Worlds in Kentucky and it got me even more pumped for an epic ride.

With that said, I decided on a ride to Ice House Canyon.  It would be enough to keep me entertained until next weekend's ride.  I woke up early and headed to GMR.  I had a bit of doubt on whether I would make it, but getting this shot below, was what kept me motivated.  

Once I entered the village I just kept going.  I felt good and didn't want to stop.  Once at Ice House, I snapped the picture below and was surprised how good I felt.  I think I could have kept going but didn't refill at the Post Office and was pressed to time. 

New goal for 2013, at least 2 to 5 trips to the lifts.

Today was beautiful on GMR.  There were many great photo ops, but I chose to refrain from taking any of them.  I only wanted one photo.  The photo that kept me going.  Funny how stupid ideas/things can keep you motivated.
