Hello. Just came back from a great ride today on San Gabriel River. My average speed was 16 miles per hour. Allot of riders and runners out today. Beautiful weather, I canít blame them. I ride an old Peugeot P6 Carbolite bike and she rides and looks nice. I had a chance to ride a modern bike from a person I met on the trail. Very nice man and Iím sorry that I forgot your name. The bike was ALL Carbon fiber (Crank, seat stem, etc.) and the frame name was GIANT. Very nice. Especially going uphill. Light, tight, and efficient. At least ten pounds lighter than my bike. But I still love my bike. For my needs itís cruising on level ground. Plus being a cheap ******* doesnít help. Going up hill on my bike is a pain without a granny gear, especially up north by the dam area. But I guess Iím just a sucker for nostalgia. One thing to be aware of is if you ever ride the San Gabriel River there is a bridge you have to cross that links you to another trail that leads to Seal Beach. In that bridge are two beehives. How do I know? I had the good fortune to be stung on my head. One bee jumped on board and crawled between the vents of my helmet. That happened three weeks ago. On my way back today I was stung again just under my left eyelid. 3 millimeters to be exact. The little guy got between me and my sunglasses and decided to sting me. He danced around with his little feet and AAAAAAAAAAAAAAaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!! Creepy!! First time I locked up my rear brakes and my rear pitched around. Luckily Iím not allergic to bee stings. As I am writing this I have not swelled up to badly. I guess this is a poor manís Botox. Maybe I could charge people for bee Botox treatment to cross the bridge and I could bang on the trestle. Just be careful crossing that bridge. Does the City take care of bee issues?
