Magical Malibu Bicycle Bliss Tour – 2017

Tomorrow marks a week since I rode my bicycle into Malibu.

When a very dear cycling friend invited me to accompany her on a road trip to Malibu, CA that culminated in a 60 mile bicycle ride along the Pacific Coast Highway, of course, I enthusiastically accepted the invitation.
 

On Monday, October 2nd, we rode the Magical Malibu Bicycle Bliss Tour: 60 Miles for 60 Years in celebration of my friend’s 60th birthday which was earlier this year (August). For my part, I also rode in celebration of the lives of my sweet younger Sister (Trina) and my beloved Grampa (Earl) who would have celebrated their birthdays on October 2nd had they not been taken so soon. They have been gone for many years now, but I still feel the sad ache in my soul because I dearly miss them. They were good and kind people. They are part of me and that will never change.

 

Over the years I’ve found it helps if I do something significant and¬† physically challenging to celebrate their lives. This ride was the perfect thing to do this year. Here are a few pictures from our time in Malibu:

This is me just after we finished the 60 miles. Beams of love and thanksgiving shooting into and out of my chest. I am SEW thankful.

 

Last but not least…the video below shows highlights of about 17 of our miles riding into Malibu (shortened into one and a half minutes).¬† It’s my first attempt at using a trial offer of some new video editing software (thus the watermark…trial offer). I suspect I will end up purchasing the software as it seems much more intuitive than others I’ve tried. I still have a lot to learn but was pleased to be able to put something together without having to spend weeks learning how to use the product.
