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

Long Beach and Back

Riding with Friends

Yesterday Ricardo, Carl and I headed to Long Beach. Ricardo and I met Carl off SGVT and Ramona Blvd. From Eurocafe in Claremont it takes about 45 minutes to Encanto Park then another 30 minutes to Ramona Blvd/SGVT. While on the river trails we kept a consistent pace around 22 mph. This was Carl's first time doing this loop so we wanted to make sure everyone stayed together. Rio Hondo Trail and LA River Trail had more of a transient population than both SGVT and SART. Some areas on Rio Hondo and LA River Trail are worst than others but overall they are not bad. SART a few years back was horrible.

From LB we headed to Seal Beach for a snack at Crema. The Creme Cafe is a good place to refuel before heading home.
