    Quick solo morning roadie. Haven’t been on the road bike for a few weeks. Super weather for the second week of November. It’s really tough living in So Cal.

    Fun ride round L.A. parts... the buds and I all trained in from different directions, and met up at Union Station. $10 weekend price is hard to beat! First some coffee, then some fancy bikes, beer, riding around, stopping by Golden Saddle... back home!

    Sixteen miles over five hours! Pushing for the slow-record!

    Nobody rides the train

    Had to try and squeeze a ride in before wife had dr. appt at 11am. Chose to ride the road bike up PCH through HB into Sunset Beach. Dry to start then someone turned on the storm machine. As the front made landfall the winds had the rain coming down sideways. Made for quad pounding headwinds on 2 of the 3 directions I traveled.
    26 tough flat miles. Loved every character building moment.

    I realized I hadn't ridden the Defy outside of the garage for entirely too long, so today I went out and remedied that situation. Little tour of central OC. It seemed like there was a headwind every direction I went. :bang: I still had entirely too much fun.

    I did a quick shake-down ride on my roadie today. The geo on that thing had become completely foreign to me. I was wondering if something was wrong, perhaps way out of adjustment? It wasn't.

    For sitting untouched for at least a full year, it road remarkably well. It's very quiet, which I appreciated. I think I finished up with about 15 miles. Rode from home out to the Rose Bowl, did one lap and rode back. Of course, those miles were done in half the time as they would have been done on dirt. I hope to include one day a week on it just to mix things up.

    Roadie again today. Just Riding Around, as they say. Not looking for PRs, or elevation, or anything but enjoying the ride. Accomplished!! :thumbsup:

    First decent road ride this year. The Rock Store climb has been closed for about a year and was recently reopened to cyclists and Yerba Buena has been repaved. Thought I would go check them both out.

    Yesterday I rode from my office to the Riverside County Transportation Commission office at downtown Riverside to pick up a wet signature document. (6.69 miles round trip, probably 50’ of gain) The security wouldn’t let me take the bike upstairs to the third floor. Hell no I will not lock my bike outside; seriously!? My plan was to show off to the Commission and demonstrate there are a few crazies out there who are fulfilling the Commission’s goals to reduce VMT. They are after all our client, so I figured it would be good marketing. In the end I had to rely on my sweat and smell to prove I’m for real.

    And so you learned from this they really don't give a crap about ATP.:whistling:

    Come to think of it, I don't recall seeing any bike racks/lockers/amenities at AQMD the other day when justifying our AB2766 dollars. :facepalm::Roflmao:rolleyes:

    These guys had racks, but the commuter has bling (lights, pump, trunk bag with tools) and I’m not letting her exposed to society. I had to cross under the 215 and a 3-lane railroad without a grade separation to get there.

    Enjoying a really great day for roadie-ing - except for the wind :eek: - and the Surf City Marathon that got in the way.

    I did not stop in and indulge. Too early.:rolleyes:
