Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

The Saddleback Mountains were my stomping grounds then, but I took a couple of "vacations" at the Marine Corps Special Services facility on Big Bear Mountain. At one point, I attracted some attention, and got invited to Mammoth, where I did one of the first Kamikaze Downhill events. Then it was on to the Rosarito to Ensenada ride, where I learned just exactly how much fun a mass bike ride could be.

Gawd, I miss those days. But the base isn't there any more. (I think it got destroyed by aliens in the "Independence Day" movie.") - But no, that didn't actually happen, did it? No, it got frozen in stasis by the battle between the Orange County developers and the EPA - who are trying to clean-up a contaminated water table.

Oops, sorry... here's a photo from today's ride:



The road is empty as far as we can see... right?

The new/old river crossing between Stillwater, Minnesota and Houlton, Wisconsin. 100 year old lift bridge converted to bike/pedestrian use.
Although there are plenty of pedestrians, I think I was about the only one on a bicycle.
