Last ride of the Year

Reconnected with my friend Bill today for a ride among the citrus and avocado groves of Camarillo, Santa Paula and Somis. Great views from the top of Balcom Canyon followed by a speedy and cold descent into the flat lands filled with orchards. The bike lanes were filled with dung-like piles of squashed mud from the farm equipment. Why don’t they clean these roads more frequently? Some sections forced me into the car lane but not before a quick glance behind to ensure I would not be a hood ornament. Overall a good ride as measured by my increased cadence and calming piece of mind.
