    100% so! I don't even mind the cars, as they're going pretty slow around me on these downtown errands.

    Today's errands revolved around riding over to get beer and Mexican food!

    I road my bike today and I liked it :oops:
    Mt Gleason from Acton. For not being a fan of road riding, this was a fantastic route with beautiful canyon roads and minimal cars:thumbsup: In fact the top section is closed to vehicles, win-win!

    During our ride yesterday my buddy Tony said he was doing a century this morning for recovery. WTF? For recovery? After a major bonk I was not sure I wanted to do 100 miles. Of course I set my alarm for 4:30am just in case and when I woke up I decided why not? Simi Valley to Santa Clarita and back. Our initial plans were to go up to Bear Divide off Sand Canyon but realized that was much more than a century and by the time we got to Santa Clarita it was already 95°! At that point we changed the route and headed towards home. We were both glad we decided to cut it "short". It was a nice recovery spin.

    I'll say it again...Cool Breeze Century. There are few better. And it starts in Ventura, just down the road a piece from you. :thumbsup: August 17th.

    I got some motivation to get back on my Road bike. If my Strava stats change and my mileage drastically increases you see why.

    Took the cruisers to the beach, and did about 20 miles on the Marvin Braude trail from Will Rogers to Marina del Rey with my lady. Ate tacos, dodged weirdos, and talked life. Nice little day.

    Rode the commuter to Target for 196 diapers (yay bungee chords)! Then rode said commuter to Bed, Bath, & Beyond for a sound machine to try and gimmick some sleep for ourselves. 15 miles of urban happy.

    In first year or so of parenting my wife and I referred to the Target run as a Tarcation. It seemed like the only way to get out of the house without cashing in a hall pass.

    Dropped Truck off at dealer for oil change and rode commuter bike home. On way home, I encountered a roadie on a carbon Felt with matching kit trying to patch a tube. I stopped to help out and counted six patches on said tube already.:eek: He didn’t have a spare tube, and it turns out his pump is broken, and my tubes are 26x1.5, so no help there. He barely spoke English but knew enough to express appreciation when I flagged down some roadies riding in opposite direction who were gracious enough to offer a spare tube gratis while citing karma and reciprocation when they were offered a few dollars for the gear. Back to the amigo...he was using a paint can opener to pry his tire off the rim, :confused: but at least his kit matched his rig! We both commented on at least half a dozen pendejos who just rode past us without asking if we needed help or offering SAG during our ordeal.:rolleyes: I left him with a plastic tire lever and a handshake. Yay hooligans!

    1 lap around Central Park today with my two girls. Forgot to take pictures, and no STRAVA, so I can’t prove anything. 90 degrees. 5 miles? 80’ of climbing? No blackouts tonight, so we got that going for us.

    Which is nice.
