Back in the US, sir!

After a fun-filled, food-filled, friend-filled trip to Bangalore, where I did no blog writing (but did a fair amount of riding), I'm back to the rather surreal peace and beauty of So Cal. I suddenly saw my regular ride through new eyes, and thought I'd post some pictures.

Here, the San Gabriel mountains either beckon or threaten from the San Gabriel River Trail (SGRT). Today they threatened, since it was to be my first sustained climb in nearly two months.

A short way up, I stopped to watch the 4WD crazies churning the mud in the dried reservoir bed.

And this is the top of the ride, about 1,000m up. Shortly after this, is the sustained 14km descent, always a good time.


  1. Surreal, Minkey! I wouldn't have thought you photo-shopped them if I didn't see such surreal beauty in VT myself. You're biddy lucky to be riding there, I say! :)

  2. Between great scenery and good company, I think I prefer the good company! When are you coming to visit? :)

  3. Hehe.. Thanks. I would prefer good company too! Visit? I don't know! I wish I could do that though. Lets see how it goes. :)
