Bikes and Beers

This past Saturday I headed down to San Diego for the 2nd annual Bikes and Beers. I decided to park near Balboa Park and ride down to the Quartyard, which served as the start, finish and everything in between for Bikes and Beers. John Anderson welcoming everyone and getting us excited for our ride around … Continue reading

Biking State Street

We spent some time this summer in Santa Barbara. Here are a few people we saw on bikes, scooters and skateboards. Enjoy!

Bike to Work Day

Back in May the City of Temecula hosted their first ever Bike to Work Day. Well over twenty people participated in the ride. I was excited to see a bike to work ride in Temecula and happily participated. Some participants rode bikes that were loaned from The Bike Shop Temecula.¬†Those loaner bikes have sparked some … Continue reading

Biking Around Temecula

Once again Downtown Temecula was alive with bikes this Saturday. Many of the local cycling clubs ride through Downtown Temecula on their way to the gorgeous hills west of Temecula, but all bikes that I see Downtown are the sporty racing type. It doesn’t take long to see someone riding for their local Temecula Farmer’s … Continue reading

Temecula Farmers Market

We made our way to Downtown Temecula this morning for the farmers market and immediately noticed how many people we saw riding bikes. It really is a great way to see Downtown Temecula. Give it a try sometime. We spent about 15 minutes walking around the farmers market and these were some of the people … Continue reading

Under Five Thousand Miles

This year I set a goal for our family to drive less than 3,000 miles in 2012. While we didn’t quite make our goal, we did come close. If you consider that public transit is horrible and family biking is almost nonexistent it’s pretty amazing that we didn’t rack up 10,000 + miles. For 2013 … Continue reading
