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

Beach Century

Yesterday Demi, Otto, Warren, Mike and I met up at Euro Cafe and headed down to the beach.  The weather was perfect for a beach century, cool in the morning and sunny by the time we were heading home.  This was the first time in YEARS riding with Mike M so it was a real treat.  He said he isn't riding much but I heard he is doing a lot of secret training these days.  Mike rode strong and 100 miles ain't easy. I think he is secret training.

I joked around saying I am going steady with Warren.  Warren is a diesel engine and kept such a great pace to and from the beach.  He is such a steady even paced rider, it makes these long rides seem easy.  No surges, just an even fast steady pace.  

We saw a number of riders out today, Alvin and his crew, Chad, and Mike Y.

On the way back, Demi's rear cassette was making weird noises so we stopped at Local Bike Stand.
