    I rode my bike!!! Yep this morning. Started off predawn. It was light (enough) when I reached the dirt and super dense foggy. Did the usual climb and that put me just above the fog line so I was surrounded by a sea of white in all directions. I had forgotten how dirty fog riding makes a bike, though. :mad:

    My plan was to ride Wildwood this morning. The more I thought about it the more I wanted to get some easy miles in so I decided to do Sycamore Canyon instead. On my way to Sycamore Canyon I was thinking maybe I would start at Space Mountain and get some extra credit. Well the surface streets were backed up for several miles so I ended up heading to Wildwood after all. I'm glad I did. It's been a long time since I have ridden there. All of the trails were in great condition. Temps were nice with a strong ocean breeze towards the end of my ride. I may head back over there Thursday.

    I got out today 71 degrees at the start. Marine layer came in and the dew point dropped to 70. So it was cool yet damp.
    Happy trails

    Rode the Yeti at P12 today with my buddy Homer from work. Good dude. Need to get him out on some Saturday rides.
    I think we got in about 12 and a half miles, in an hour and a half. :thumbsup:

    Strawberry loop with a Gabrielino finish with the infamous @rossage. That guy kills it on his hardtail! I'm glad I finally got out of Simi Valley. What an epic day of riding. Marathon distance with 3,116' of climbing.

    The newly opened section of the Gabrielino is in the most rideable, best condition I have ever seen it.

    I go out and get wet before I fully put the suit on, and go out to wash the booties out when I am done. Some say the water gets a little warmer but I never noticed.
