New signage at GMR mile marker 7.

Monday, March 28, 2016

Karma. Fate. El Niño. Three is the word for tonight's ride. Three Monday's in a row with cloudy skies. Cool temperatures. Breezy winds. Three days in a row of riding GMR. Saturday to the shed. Sunday doing micro intervals. Monday pushing a hard gear up the hill. Three times more fun. Perhaps Helle's advice of stretching after each ride is helping.

Monday night ride. And the Angels said unto to me "go forth and ride your bicycle in the beauty of the hills. The air is full of moisture and you shall go fast as you have waited four long months." It was glorious and worth the wait. And it was fast.

Friday Happenings

Just when you think you know what might be happening on the road, life happens. A controlled burn near Tanbark. Los Angeles Unified School District Bus Training. Someone riding on the wrong side of the yellow line. Leading to heart pounding moments. Hightailing it squirrels and a slithering lizard. Lots happening on a busy Friday.
