Going Places...

I'm starting to take some pictures from my rides. Maybe everyone can pitch in and share their pictures as well.

Here are a few pictures I have.

Late night spin around Downtown,






Santiago Canyon ride,



This is Craig in front of me,



The scenery was nice in the canyon but I just didn't have the energy to pull out the phone to take pictures. Next time I will take more pictures. Also I noticed it's much easier to stop and take pics when riding alone. Group rides are difficult to stop.

The Colorado Bridge,









Arroyo Seco,



Damn bike keeps getting in the way of the pictures... sorry about that. hehehe.


Keep riding...

Sweet. I used to ride my bike across the Colorado Street bridge every morning to go to school, and probably jumped that stone wall (or one just like it) to go play in the Arroyo. Those pics bring back memories.

Went for a quick spin down to the beach the other day around PV:



then, back up the hill on Via del Monte. Twisty way up with beautiful view of the "Queens Necklace":

I was surprised to see people fishing in the LA river.

79 miles to Solana Beach from the Angels Stadium in Anaheim,

Heading down to Huntington Beach on the Santa Ana river,



Alex the giant on the right, 6'5" tall... that was the tallest saddle I ever saw in person.



Somewhere along the coast next to the train tracks,





San Onofre,







Encinitas,







Solana Beach Amtrak Station,



This was my longest ride so far. We took the train back from Solana but Craig and another guy pushed on to San Diego Amtrak station. They logged 103 miles.

I thought it was going to be mostly flat but there were lots of "rolling hills" along the coast which made the ride interesting. For the most part a safe riding trip.

It was great seeing our coast up close.

And we keep riding,

My fuel for this ride:

ham and egg sandwich
2 bananas
3 bottles of gatorade
1 bottle of water
1 powerbar
1/2 peanut butter sandwich
1 power gel thingy
and a few cigarettes

According to my Garmin I burned about 6000 calories.

Our group took close to 7 hours. We made several stops and a flat tire which took too long to fix. 5-6 hours would've been possible. It was not a race so I guess it didn't really matter how fast we got there as long as we were able to absorb the scenery.

I had a couple hours to kill while Andy had his soccer practice in La Canada so I decided to ride.

Overlooking Pasadena... on Lida Street past the Art Center near Chevy Chase Drive. This was my first time up on these hills. I was dying.




The Rose Bowl and the Brookside Golf Course. The bowl loop is nice to mindlessly pedal and work on technique since there are no stop signs or signals, otherwise it will bore you to death. The loops is about 3 miles long.

Yesterday, I had a couple hours of daylight so decided to venture out to Griffith Park. I kind of got lost once in the park and ended up just following a few riders. I ended up on Mt. Hollywood Drive and decided to follow the road. So the climb began...

I got tired and wanted to capture some of the scenery... overlooking Mt Sinai Memorial and hazy Burbank.



Looking West, Hollywood is probably somewhere beyond those hills.



Back to climbing and climbing... and finally at the top of Mt. Hollywood Drive, and that dome structure would be Griffith Observatory,



The view was nice even w/ the hazy weather. It added a nice color to the sunset. This 36 mile ride took me 3 hours. It was a fun road with many switchbacks and there were many sections where it was gravel, dirt, and cracked asphalt. I kind of enjoyed the rough ride. My little piece of Paris-Roubaix action. My Vittoria SC's performed great on the uneven road.

Haven't been able to ride since Thanksgiving due to a pinched nerve on my neck. Finally started to feel better last month and got back on the bike. This past weekend ended up in Anaheim for Maggie's volleyball tournament and decided to go for a ride after dropping her off.

It was a long ride for me but fun to revisit Santiago Canyon.





Beautiful cool day...





Lake Irvine,



Quick break on the side of the road to check out the scenery and rest.



Towards the end of Santiago Canyon before the 241 toll road,

Nice.

At least one of us is riding.

I'm starting to get shot out and thinking about getting back on the bike again.

I'm up for a ride this Saturday. Nothing Armageddon though, because I haven't been riding a lot lately. How about something like the PV loop?

Sorry, but I can't make this Sunday. The CaPRC centerfire match is this Sunday. I'm shot out, but I plan to shoot that match and then not touch a gun again until the next match at the end of May.

Emily has swim practice Saturday morning from 6:30 to 9. That's a 2 1/2 hour window for me. I think we can do the PV loop sans major climbs in 2 hours. .
