Last Ride of 2013

John and I rode back to back days to the shed. There were a few more people on the road today versus yesterday. Two horse trailers passed us by and several trucks laden with off-road bikes raced up the mountain. Out the saddle for more of the ride to give the knee a straighter downward stroke was my goal. A moment at mile marker 8.9 where the road is repaved -- the slowing of the sense of time to enjoy the moment of not being at the bottom and not being at the top and wanting the moment to last forever where the road is smooth. The average speed was faster overall than the day before. A day off from riding. Enjoy the New Year.

Winding down

2013 is rapidly coming to an end. Got out and rode with Bill and John today. Shed and back. The weather is perfect Rose Parade weather cool in the mornings around the mid 40s with the highs in the 70s. Starting later in the morning means warm sun and fewer clothes.

SCVelo Incycle Toy Ride

The SCVelo bike club stuffed back packs and pull carts full of toys and rode them to the Sheriff's station in San Dimas. 30 children's bicycles were also donated to families in need. I love the white bear stuffed in John's (Chaffee Autobody) backpack.
