Known to locals as GMR..........Glendora Mountain Road. Connects to GRR........Glendora Ridge Road..... 21 mile climb to Baldy Village will give you just shy of 5,000 ft. The return has some short climbs that will make sure you get all 5,000 ft out of the round trip.

My Dad drove a 54 Ford pickup. I rode in the back on benches he made on a 200 mile trip a couple times. Also hauled a couple calves to my grandparents farm. Hed replaced the seat cover with some thick green canvas from army surplus. Great memories!!!

After I retired I started a series of Photographs called "My Life Behind Bars" . Meaning, my life enjoying retirement behind the handle bars of Both my Bicycle and Motorcycle. So most of the pics of bicycle are of a outdoor scene with my the handle bars of either my motorcycle or bicycle in the shot.

While trying to pick up some VeloViewer tiles I happened to ride past Toho Studios in Tokyo. A bronze statue commemorates the "Godzilla" movies made here in the 1950s and 60s while a big mural depicts "Shichinin no Samurai" (Seven Samurai, 1954), one of the most famous Akira Kurosawa movies which in 1960 was remade as a Western as "The Magnificent Seven".

Swifty with his holiday scarf at the Southwest corner of the Frog Bridge in Willimantic, Connecticut. The Frog Bridge commemorates the Frog Fight (or Fright) of 1754.
