Always good for a laugh. This one is Sunday the 22nd. San Dimas to Claremont.

Laugh? The thing is laugh with or at.

Its the greater population. Mostly for fun. I have gone to two of them, both in the Los Angeles area. Then I stopped going, not that much fun for me.

But if I live in San Dimas, then maybe its less of an effort to join in on the fun. That means stopping over at the booths along the way and joining in on conversations when I tell them why my expensive helmet really won't make me go faster.

I'd have to agree somewhat with the Cat. It appears that these things are being brought to different regions of the city in an effort to get people to get outside and on their bikes. That's basically the first step in showing many of them that you can have some fun getting out on your bike on a nice sunny day. It's propaganda, but I think it's good propaganda. Although, I don't think you'd ever find me an one... I support the idea 100%

I had a really good time. Had to go up a few allys to avoid “walk your bike” zones. Shot up Mountain ave. to Baldy Mountain Restaurant for a Guacamole Burger and a nice frothy beer. Great, wind in your face, downhill return. Rode thru Claremont College, Harvey Mudd University, and right up the side of a mountain. Awesome. Home by 1.

Unicycles

Didn’t see any of those mythical beasts...perhaps because it was Sunday.
