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

Week 17 Mileage

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

Have you seen the new bike bridge over the Santa Gertrudis Creek? Really loving this bridge already. We often ride to Harveston and now we have a much safer route! No more trying to merge through two lanes of traffic just to make a left turn into Harveston. You can access this bridge directly from … Continue reading

Week 3 Mileage

Driving, driving, and more driving! This week was a mess. Monday and Tuesday were normal for us, but Tuesday night my wife got sick…which meant riding all three of my kids in our cargo bike to school was out. It’s not impossible…it’s just difficult. I opted to drive that morning. I did pick my daughter … Continue reading
