New Cassette and Chain

The old chain had been popping and my favorite gear looked a bit shark finned. Replaced both on Saturday at Incycle. It was easy to stay and watch the Mountain Bike US Cup Women's Race recorded from the previous weekend.
I have been setting personal bests this month. April 13th I improved 6 seconds over my top 2014 time. Wednesday April 15th I improved 12 seconds (18 seconds total). Tonight April 22nd with the new cassette and chain and deliciously cloudy cool weather, I improved another 33 seconds (51 seconds total). Smiling.

Saturday Ride

Kim and Mike trekked 60 miles to ride on Glendora Mountain Road on their way to Baldy Village. Kim zipped past us as Joan, Matt and I stopped by the Experimental Forest Sign on Glendora Ridge Road at mile marker 2.45. Matt and Joan headed back home, while I pursued my quest for miles and altitude. The Reward Climb challenged my determination as it always does. I would ride past Mike in his mini cooper stopped in the shade of the mountain. He would zoom to the next point then wait for Kim to ride by. As a veteran SAG Support, Mike knew the best turn outs. I was three minutes behind Kim. and Mike and I played a tag relay up the Reward Climb.
Last Sunday, Shane avoided the glass in the road on his second trip up past the ranger station on GMR.

Elliptigo rider on GMR. This guy is working towards riding to Baldy.

Off Road Parking

One enterprising or lucky mustang driver managed to stay close to the road without drifting down the canyon. Kudos.
