Why I ride

Today, Tony and I climbed into one of the local canyons to Centerville. It's a fun climb, and the road actually turns into gravel and spits you out a few miles above the little "town" of Magalia.

Rather than take the gravel this time, we turned around where the pavement ends. I strapped a Sony point-n-shoot camera to my front rack, turned on the video recorder, and bombed the hill.

70 degree days, strong coffee for fuel, good health, sunshine on my skin, wind in my face and nice people around me. This is why I ride.

OK, I have a 3 year old and that little film made me feel like that age all over again.

Hey G! That was nice. Kinda puts me in a non-stressful world. Even makes me think back to some of my 20mile training runs in the hills around north A-town.
Good stuff!
