    Ojai valley trail is awesome. I take it you started from Fosters park?

    Matt scour the web for a used Trailcraft Pineridge 24. Trust me it will make a night and day difference in the kiddos riding experience. Just don’t do like I did and buy a brand new one for the kids tenth birthday and watch them outgrow it in a year.

    Road the Big T loop this morn to beat the heat! Very few cars on Big Tujunga canyon road -- just five -- and only one car passed me on the way back down the ACH. My short gearing definitely held me back on the descent, spun out nearly the whole way back down!

    I was gonna add a Zwift roadie comment here, but decided it wasn't worth it. Never mind. Go back to your usually scheduled programming. Nothing to see here.

    The middle child and I really wanted a beach day, but there’s absolutely no parking allowed soo....we parked on Main St, in Ventura and did an out n back from there to Rincon. We brought backpacks with suits, towels, etc and stopped at Mondos for a swim and sun, then finished it all off with tacos at the Taco Shack. Pretty decent day I must say:inlove:

    Cool! We used to feed the squirrels that live in the rocks at Morro Bay. If you sat still, they would climb up on your lap and eat their treat.

    Haha, we used to do similar, they can be overly brave tho! I’m always afraid those things will bite!

    Snapper Jacks, or the place on the Pier? We were there on Sunday, and the West Main bike path parking lot west of the Fairgrounds was open. Glad you guys got out. I love cruising up there.

    Taco Shack on the Pier! They have great tacos! Snapper Jacks is ok, IMO they’re overpriced for what you get.
    Once Mc Connells ice cream shop is open again you have to take your girls there, that is if you haven’t already!

    Agreed. I could live on the Early California grilled shrimp tacos. Thanks for the tip re: McConnells. Have not partaken, but we throw down on ice cream.

    Analogy: Jumping out of perfectly good airplanes. On purpose.

    Analogy: Voluntarily crewing a boat designed to sink. That, as a bonus, is a huge target for everyone else.

    I needed to wake up my legs after a full week off the bike so I did a full circle around the San Raphael Hills (Montrose/La Canada/Pasadena/Eagle Rock/Glendale).

    I guess I'll post it here, since I was 1) on my road bike, 2) on the road (except for maybe 100 yards of dirt) and 3) and I didn't do enough dirt percentage-wise to legitimize putting it in the Gravel Bike thread.

    Fun times, because I was on one of my bikes for a few hours.

    Kinda' just got through the day, hanging out, washing the mud off from Saturday's ride, reading the Sunday paper, watching videos. Finally got out and about. And what do I do it on... another frickin' single speed. It's like I just don't learn. This was better though, really!

    Slow and meandering ride into Yucaipa. I had planned on riding trails to Calimesa then up to Crafton, but was NOT feeling it this morning. Third day in a row with just nothing :-/ Settled for a put-put road ride. It was still nice, temps were great, streets were empty, but just nothing in the tank.

    99% roadie ride on the cruzadoro. Left at 8:30, but really not hot when I finished at 10:00. Streets were empty of cars. Hardly any bikes, either, but a lot of walkers out and about.
