It doesn’t take long to see someone riding for their local Temecula Farmer’s … Continue reading

We came really close to our mileage goal for the week. I’ve averaged our miles out for the year and we need to average around 58 miles a week. This week we drove 61.4 miles. I’m hoping that the nicer weather will get us on the bike more and out of the car. We did … Continue reading

I’ve been seeing more and more people on bikes in old town. Bike parking that rarely has one bike in it now have two regularly. I hope people, especially … Continue reading
