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

 Yesterday on the way to Montrose we had to take a slight detour.  The police had the bridge (Route 66) leading into Encanto Park blocked off.

Monroe Truck Trail

 I did something different today. I left the road bike at home and took my Rock Lobster Gravel bike out instead.  I met up with Gregory M, Melissa P, Jessica G, Ryan G, AJ and John K at the base of Monroe Truck Trail (MTT). From there we headed up to the top. I rode down GMR while they headed back down on the trail.  

I ran 43c Gravel Kings with a 11-34t cassette and 34/50t chainrings.  This setup was totally fine for the MTT.

Wednesday Night Shack and Back

 Wednesday Night Shack and Back is BACK! 5:30 pm Wednesday nights at the corner of GMR and Sierra Madre.

Two Wheel Tuesday

I had a lot of fun on last night's Two Wheel Tuesday (2WT) ride.  We met up at LaVerne Brewery at 6:30 pm and headed out around Bonelli.  Montgomery turned up the heat on both Cannon Ave and up to Padua Theater.  

I had a good talk with Scott D on the way back home.  It's always nice meeting other cycling enthusiast.

On the way home I got to meet CAMACHO for the first time.  Camacho is a STRAVA friend I've never met until last night.  

Demi H thanks for keeping this ride alive and well.
