What a great climb/descent. Sooo much fun coming down.

Fantastic image. How long does it take to climb up there? I've been to the Bay Area a million times, but never ridden a bike there.

An old crank can sometimes look presentable again, when going out for a spin.


Just a little soap and water and donít forget to brush your teeth well.

That's where a high school girl drove off on New Year's Eve a couple years ago. I don't know what the other one is near there. Personally, I think it's hideous and I don't think people should be allowed to build these things along the road out in the countryside.

Solo 40 miles today on the trail. With the snow covered mountains the last few days, no way am I going up there!

Silicone light ball sack was a Christmas gift from my 37 year old daughter, along with some bike t shirts and other bike swag. Cool when your kids understand your passion and hobbies.

Tonight's crescent moon. I happened to catch a plane flying by with the shutter speed at about 6 seconds, IIRC.

Officially, I don't think it IS permitted. I recall some kind of exception made in a very small number of cases long ago. I do like them, and that one (for Sarah ... you're right .. she drove over the side after a NYE party) in particular. But since it appears to be about 4 inches of reinforced concrete, it is probably a hazard.

I had a rare eastbound takeoff from LAX a few days ago, and was lucky enough to get a good photo of my cycling hood.

On the bottom there is the Palos Verdes Peninsula, with the beach cities of Torrance, Redondo Beach (with the larger marina), Hermosa Beach, Manhattan Beach, Venice, and Santa Monica.

Off in the distance under the clouds are the Santa Monica Mountains, with Malibu and Pt. Dume (the largish point in the distance). That is a south facing beach, which is why it is a summer surfing break.

You an even see Pt Mugu way on the upper left.

We clean up well after a good rainstorm.
