    It’s Bike to Work week people! @Runs with Scissors and @Voodoo Tom are leading the charge, as usual. I’m cheating and using the Metrolink for part of my route since free rides all week when boarding with a bike, and I don’t have to ride through the Aqua Mansa Industrial Park. 1B408CD2-E14C-4CCF-9EF5-4AD15FA14C32.jpeg

    That was neither a road century or a mountain bike ride.

    I rode neither my mountain bike, nor a century, but also did a quick spin around town. Stopped by a cool redwood to stage a photo op. Couple miles o' fun:

    Mtb is in the shop so Road the bike today, cruisin' around OC was fun. was a light rain when I was about to leave and head down to a friends house. Thought for a second about canceling and hanging around the house but thankfully it was a fleeting thought.
    Sunday morning are pretty much the best time as most people sleep in or are doing whatever.
    Was a good ride with a good friend. Much as I enjoyed it I started to get a little bored with pavement near the end.
    31 mil and 1460 ft. a good fun ride.

    Road ride from Yorba Linda Park to get breakfast in Newport Beach with a group of Floopers and Fenix Bikes gurus. Dusted off the '90 Bianchi for me (pictured far left). Amazing the BB has never been replaced/rebuilt. I have to wonder if there's any grease left??? Vince just had slick tires on his MTB. He would take turns "pulling" the crew at 20+mph down the path. No road bike needed. Breakfast was at Eat Chow. I had the Gringo Burrito. The ride back was a bit slower.:sleep:

    I was initially going to ride local fire roads but did not feel like climbing after yesterday's epic. I decided to hop onto my road bike and ended up running into my buddy Tony who was doing a recovery ride as well. We ended up heading over into Westlake and back. Very nice easy spin.
