A backyard ride.

[ Sunday - July 3, 2011 ]

As anybody who lives in a metropolitan area is aware, it can suck pretty hard when it comes to population density.  Not only that, it's extremely hard to get away from one another.  Still, there is an occasional silver lining.  In this case it's the benefit of living close to the foothills of the San Bernadino mountains.  It's just a short hop to reach some nice canyon roads.  I also get a pleasant surprise for this day.  The park has open the San Gabriel Canyon Road (HWY 39) just that much further into the mountains.  I ride to the very top gate and then descended back down.  Despite the massive over crowding of people trying to picnic around the 4th of July holiday, it was still a pleasant short ride.  The law enforcement was out in force.  At one point, towards the very bottom and end of the ride, I had a park ranger tailing me hoping to catch me speeding.  Sorry, you don't get to take my money for today.  I was only about 2-3 miles over the speed limit.
