The sobering story is the purpose of the ghost bikes. Ride safe all.

My white Paramount, and a very nicely-maintained ghost bike, sniffing each other's butts, on Old Creek Road near Morro Bay California last weekend. I can tell the victim was well-loved, and is undoubtedly missed.

Grief aside, we have had the most fantastic winter for riding I have seen in an entire lifetime of living in the Golden State. There has yet to be a single day this fall and winter when the riding conditions were not superb (and mostly warm). The smoke was a little bad at times during October, but it's been a great year to hit the hills during our so-called cool months. I have yet to wear even leg warmers all this year.
