    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

    No helmet-thrashing in this iteration, I hope. :whistling:

    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.

Decided to ride my road bike at the beach and just enjoy my Monday with some nice weather. Rode from Hermosa beach to Pacific Palisades and back Venice and Santa Monica where crowded with scooters and bikes. 43miles wont complain it was a beautiful day not be at work!!:thumbsup:

    I was a roadie today.

    I set up my Defy with the Mavic Ksyrium Allroad Pro Disc wheels and paired up some 28mm Hutchinson Fusion tubeless road tires with them. Ho Lee Sh!t!!!! What a difference!!!!

    Started at GMR/Sierra Madre and did one of my favorite rides, just to see how the setup would compare. I beat my PR on the infamous GMR "Gate to Shack" segment by 4 minutes (I was shooting for under an hour. Got it). I smoked almost all my previous times on the various climbs. Most of this had to do with the wheelset, I'm sure, since they're substantially lighter than the stock Giant PR-2 wheelset. But the tires, at 80 psi, tubeless....all I can say is, WOW!!! Stuck like glue; even with the wind today I was blazing on the curves. So, yeah, I think I like this.

    I'll never go back. 48/6,200.
