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 16 Mileage

This week’s theme is bike parking and car (not where you should be) parking. On Saturday I headed for the farmers market in Old Town Temecula. 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

Final Voyage

This past week was a fun bike week. We spent some time at Hurkey Creek near Idyllwild. What a beautiful place! Was very cold when we woke up. It warmed up quickly and we hit the trail. We also did a little cargo biking this week. I had our Madsen up for sale and had … Continue reading

30 Days of Biking Day 2

April is 30 Days of Biking month. Go ride a bike! Truck…we don’t need no stinking truck! We made a quick run to The Bike Shop today to pick up a new roof rack. Found a lonely piece of firewood on the way back and grabbed a couple gallons of milk. Cargo haul! We also … Continue reading

Week 7 Mileage

Have you seen the price of gas edging up these past few weeks? A couple cents a day it seems. Too rich for my blood. Couldn’t help taking a picture this morning on our way back from the grocery store. I’m guessing very few people buy the premium grade.  Total car miles for the week: … Continue reading

Week 5 Mileage

This week was an amazing week for biking in Temecula. We held our first ever bike train at Ysabel Barnett Elementary. It was a huge first ride! I counted a total of 124 bikes at school after the ride! Many parents and volunteers rode as well as Temecula Mayor Chuck Washington. Lots of smiles were … Continue reading

Home Depot By Bike

5 people, 1 car, 1 bike, two different directions. This morning we had to get our children to their gymnastics class on one end of town, while I had a bike meeting with the City of Temecula on the other end of town. I usually ride the kids to their class, but given that I … Continue reading
