From there, it was smooth riding to Pioneer Park in El Monte where we regrouped to catch our breath and much needed shade. After hydrating we headed out to Peck Rd. park for more air, shade and water. We cruised through a calm El Monte neighborhood in route to the San Gabriel River path where we headed South back to Legg Lake. 2 hours, 15 minutes and approximately 500 burned calories later we made it back to home base to enjoy some ice cream from the neighborhood paletero. A great reward for a great ride.
We also kicked off our walk/job/run club and the whopping group of 2 completed 1.25 miles around the lake with a whopping smile. We hope to grow our group of 2 by 2 by next month. Will it be you?
Thanks again to all our supporters, riders, newbies, and of course friends of BikeSGV. The next ride is Sunday, September 23rd. We'll see you then!
