Nobody likes a ride being cancelled on the sake of rain, but it sure seems like we are becoming less afraid of it. I would have braved it, but I was out of town for a wedding.
I was hoping to give you a photo journal of the Truckee River Bike Path, but things went a bit haywire trying to grab last minute things. To make things even worse, I had to stand next the the Tahoe Rim Trail without getting to bike it:
Sigh. I hope they decide to redo their vows every year so I have an excuse.
As for the rain, we’re Los Angeles Strong! A little bit of downpour and we’ll ride it. And take pictures as well:
Wet helipad. Even though I’ve never seen a chopper there.
Amazing descent from Newcomb’s today… until the skies opened up and almost washed me off the mountains. Holy hydroplane! #puckerfactor11 #rubbersidesideways #angelescrest #losangeles A photo posted by Jeff Thrasher (@thr_sh_r) on
If you can survive the ‘Crest with the wind and rain, you deserve a reward beverage after.
Doesn’t it seem like rain doesn’t phase us as much anymore? Family ride!!

Rain coming from everywhere!
One of the rides I mentioned this past week was the Gravel Grinder riding out of Pedaler’s Fork on Sunday. Needless to say, it looked like fun:
I’m going to take a semi-informed guess and say this is Chesebro Canyon. Or something very near.

Kind of an Indiana Jones moment.
Showering with friends is always fun! Lastly, the Tour de Laemmle took over the county yesterday, as riders touched both east and west boundaries. That means they rode a lot:
The riders are recuperating and loading up! #tourdelaemmle #bike #summer #bicycle #tour A photo posted by Tour de Laemmle (@tourdelaemmle) on
Climb Mt. Sac and everyone will take a knee to recover.
Who doesn’t like to see bikes ready to go?
