44 miles, Ventura to Summerland, just south of Santa Barbara. Nice fall day, no big wind, no smoke, slight tailwind home. Good times!


Flare up of fire near Reagan Library (flat top building on top of the ridge) from 23 Freeway, driving out.

Channel Islands Bike Club, ready to roll.

Favorite photo spot along Pedaro Road.

All the more reason I need to get down to to So Cal! Thank you.

I pedalled furiously for 150 meters and my first McDonalds coffee.😁
Pit stopped for two hours then rode 125 meters then 300 meters to do various errands.🤔 Then I rushed home about two hundred meters away.🤗 This afternoon will be almost as arduous as the morning. I will just break the first kilometer wall.😀
Now excuse me,my second McDonalds coffee awaits.😉

47 miles, from Camarillo, down PCH to Malibu - Trancas turnaround, to beat incoming rain storm. Chilly, mid 50s and nice tailwind starting out, bigtime headwind heading home. Still, always a great ride, just missed 17 mph, 16.9 avg. Longest ride on my new Brooks Cambium C17. I think I prefer B17 leather, but still adjusting.


Clouds at Magu Rock.


2007 Roubaix, new Brooks C17.

2 miles of nuthin'. Just resting, basically, as recommended by you wise people. Gonna get back to it tomorrow bright and early. My quad pain is gone. I feel good. Planning on just doing about maybe 20 miles tomorrow, pre-traffic. Been playing around with this app called Ulysses. It's pretty cool for speed and some other things. Anyhow, gonna see how it does on a longer ride. Hopefully, increasing my protein intake and rest will have helped my quad pain situation going forward. I will find out soon enough.
