We rode last Sunday to San Bernadino. I rode the Merlin single speed. The group I ride with don't get it (the single speed thing). Anyway, I rode from where most of the others did, so it was an extra 12 km (7.5 miles) to the trailhead.
There was a moment on the ride when I was completely alone. It was nice. Just me and my most simple (and favorite) bike.
In San Bernadino I took a few photos, but nothing outstanding. My favorite is the one posted above.
On the return trip, Jacques crashed hard on the downhill. He mangled is left shoulder pretty good. Today I got word that he had surgery in Caracas and had a pin put in his shoulder. That's nuts!
