River Trail 25 mile ride

I finally got the picture from my son’s mobile phone, so here I am at Pio Pico State Park where the last Mexican Governor of California lived just down the road from Los Angeles. This means the building I’m standing in front of was the Governor’s mansion back in the 1800’s! After a ride on the Metro train, we rode 12 miles up the Rio Hondo River trail and another 10 miles down the San Gabriel River trail plus 3 miles to and from our house. We were pretty tired and sore, but it was a great ride!

My bike chain came loose twice during the trip and the rear brake still will not release from time to time. I still need some minor adjustments, but I think my bike is fixed enough to ride!

Bike Ride

I am planning on doing a bike ride with some friends in a week so I need to get the bike fixed. One reason I don’t want to go to a bike shop is because all the things I want to do I would like to learn how to do myself. I will see if I can do one or two things a day on the bike to break up the other chores I need to finish.


This was my dad’s old bike which I brought home after I moved him. The bike has been sitting, but now since my old bike ran away, I would like to get this bike into running condition.

My to do list:
*Raise handle bars
*Tighten seat
*Align front brakes
*Align rear brakes
*New handle bar tape
*Check shifting.
