Whether you prefer the tranquil or the frenetic, make the best of your choice this weekend. A little thirty five mile ride today left me feeling like I had done twice the distance, so I think I will start with a dash of the first, before ending with a flourish of the second at the Dana Point Grand Prix on Sunday.

You have heard of the "road less travelled", well I call this the "roadless pedaled". Dang that's good; I'll have to use it for the name of a ride.

That is about the most basic bridge you will ever see, but somehow, the simple geometry of its parts works in this instance. But maybe it is just the tranquilo speaking.
