    I have lights. But I'm one of those geezers with crappy night vision who just barely manages to see cyclists at night when I'm driving, so my perspective on the risks of night riding may be different than other peoples'. As for off-road night riding, there are no cars to contend with, but I always worry about nocturnal giant anteaters. They can be very mean.

    Cool and foggy this morning... perfect for a ride. I would have done some serious posing at the coffee shop but I forgot my wallet (Sorry, George!) Then I tested out the legs on some small hills and they seem to be ok after my double metric on Friday. Looking forward to Solvang next week!!!

    They're not so bad, Dan. I used to wrestle them when I was in college.

    The kids are at the grandparents so I was able to get Sonia back on the bike for a short ride to Starbucks and back. Hmmm, now that she's done a short ride she wants to ride again!

    Good times!

    That's great John! Now, did she really enjoy the riding part or was it the few quiet moments posing at Starbucks?

    I got up extra early this morning and rode into work in heavy fog......and yes, I did spend 45 minutes at Starbucks on the way...

    Work. I was going to commute to my desk this morning, but seeing as I decided to work from my desk at home, the walk to Vivian from the couch was twice as far as the walk to my desk.
    If you notice this notice then you will notice that this notice is not worth noticing.

    It was both! The ride to Starbucks was somewhat uphill most of the way, so the return ride was faster and easier which I think helped out, too. But sitting outside Starbucks and posing without having to rush back was probably the best part!

    I just did 45 miles from Sherman Oaks to Griffith Park and around, Dodgers Stadium and back. I forget how much of panacea riding is. I feel so much better having ridden and it was so nice out there.

    However, Fern Dell is NOT open. I couldn't get up to the observatory. I could have hopped the fence, but I do not want a $200 ticket.

    It was open yesterday! I rode up Ferndell Park at around 4pm, gate was wide open with traffic going both directions all the way to the top, and rode down the Vermont side.

    Okay, then...it's YOUR fault. They don't want you posing up there, so they locked the gate today!

    Did 21 miles yesterday afternoon on the road bike, then did another 31 this morning on the fixed gear bike (same trail, SART San Bernardino/Riverside portion, just went further the second time). Feels good to be out riding again.

    I just went for a short swim and I nearly threw up.

    crappppppppppppppppppppp, todays bike ride took a little more out of me than I thought. I did 500m tops and i was COOKED, I was going to do more but they closed the pool down early cause the lifeguard didn't show.

    No big, I'll be at Santa Monica college tomorrow at 5:30 am. TIME TO TRAIN!!

    Seriously ... does anyone know of someone who needs a network engineer or a network security engineer? This may be my reason to move back to So Cal. I just don't care about work anymore, and that's bad ...
    I'm in it to finish it.
