I was on here last week nosing around for a ride partner for a trip down south (I'm based in Los Angeles) and I was talking to a friend who doesn't ride about my trips to San Diego.

I said "Yeah, I cruise down the freeway to La Jola, then along the coast road through Pacific Beach. I always end up in Old Towne where I eat WAY more than is healthy for me at the Casa de Reyes, swear I'll never do that again and then wander my way back home"

The next day she came to me with some ideas she'd gotten from the internet about alternatives .... and I said "What part didn't you understand? I ride to Casa de Reyes, eat way more than is healthy for me, swear I'll never do it again and then I come home."

Sometimes, you just can't talk to non-riders.

Two weeks ago, I promised to take my 11 year old grandson, Chance on a group breakfast ride. The ride was rained out, but the skies were expected to clear afternoon. So we planned a early dinner ride. The rain didn't stop till 9P.

The group rescheduled the breakfast ride for this past Sunday, and Chance is eager. Yep, rained out again. This time the rain did stop before noon. We did a 3 hour ride to get burgers 30 miles away.

Isn't that why we say "Its not about the destination. Its the ride."?

Yep, have that happen to me too. When I need a small thing from the big box home store I take the bike. That, what should be, 30 mile trip often ends up being 100 or so. October is here which is the best month to ride in these parts. The weather has cooled off and this is normally our driest month. GREAT!
