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

Jimmy F from Pomona, "The First Ride"

Jimmy F moved into the neighborhood about 18 months ago, and after many conversations, I convinced him to buy a bike.

He bought a Felt TK 4130.  Its a pretty legit track bike, with no water bottle bosses, no cable guides or brake mounts on the frame.  Hands down this bike is ready for the velodrome and has enough street credibility for any would be bike messenger or fixie fool.

Its been a busy week but Jimmy and I managed to get out early for a ride that took us around Ganesha Hills and Bonelli Park. Jimmy did great as we tackled a number of hills and 17 plus miles. 

Jimmy F mashing up Via Verde.  He's smiling but that hill was a beast.  

A quick breather and we're off.  We opted to cut across the dam and then head up San Dimas Ave to Foothill.

For Jimmy's first time, back on the saddle, he did great!  Keep riding.
