    Professional development conference today in Riverside, so talked my co-worker into riding the dangerous streets and less-dangerous SART to the Convention Center. Great morning in, 16 miles downhill in an hour and 10 minutes. Ran the gauntlet on city streets and lived to tell the tale! Warm & humid, but slightly overcast 17 miles uphill back home in an hour and a half. Stuck to the SART and the Orange Blossom Trail and minimized roads. Muuuuuuch nicer! I love being able to commute by bike!!! Surprised I didn't run into @Sidewalk out there as this is his normal commute.

    orange line to work on Friday, quick 1/2 hour to work in the cool AM and all downhill on the way back to the truck. Its the valley it does not seem downhill in your gas guzzler but when you are breaking wind and gaining elevation you can tell. When you can hold the big 53 X 11 in the back on the way home you know it is .
    Happy safe valley bike lanes

    I have ridden this bike lane a few times flat and windy. Then I jump up the Rubidoux just to climb something. It is cool, long and straight, see a black dot up ahead, make the corner see a couple bikes up ahead, pass, see a black dot up ahead.......

    I beg to differ. While on SART, Surgarloaf Mountain is the goal.

    I had a nice little road ride yesterday. Had a collision with a honeybee on a fast downhill section, he got me right under the left eye. Was able to teach classes last night, but this morning I woke up with a nice shiner:Roflmao (maybe it was the inversions:whistling:) thankfully I don’t teach at all today.
    Life is good:D

    Sorry about your misfortune Sara. Don't let the word out or some of the ladies will take up riding hoping bees will sting their lips ;)

    Kind of a big group today, about 25, we did a nice Ojai loop. Honestly I found myself getting a little bored at times, kind of missing the dirt since my bike was gone for a while. But it’s always nice to be outside playing with friends:thumbsup:
    Finished off the ride with a pre migraine aura that thankfully didn’t go any further than pre:eek:

    OMG, auras are a sign of hell to come. Gotta stay extra hydrated and with extra electrolytes in this Santana wind dryness.

    Not full on! It started with the blurred vision then the brain ache.
    Sometimes breath work can stave it off! Deepen and slow down the breath

    Interesting. I have not heard of that approach.
    Sounds like you have what I call a "functional migraine". Sorry to hear that, just the same.
