Finally made it up to Ride Glorieta Baldy on Monday.We decided to park in the LifeWay Glorieta Baptist Center The recommended route is up a fireroad climb up 63A for 12 miles then descending on single track coming out at the Baptist Center.Total of about 21 miles
Since we only had a few hours we decided to ascend on single track and come back down single track when we needed to.I had never been to the Glorieta Baptist Center before. Let me tell you it is Mammoth it is like its own city. It is crazy how much money religions have. I wonder if Jesus has vacationed there.
We had a great ride. It is really nice up there.Real woodsy feel. I can't wait to go back and do the whole thing.
What is in your audio player? I have Neil Young at the Royal Festival Hall in London,2/27/71 in my player currently. A guy at work hooked me with it. I had a few tracks from it but never the complete show. Before Neil plays "Old Man" he talks about how he had just wrote the song a couple months ago and how it is about a man and his wife who he had bought a ranch from and the man and his wife had stayed on to take care of the cattle.
Some pictures of the Oil fires in England.
Here are some pictures from the ride Monday.
