It will be a quiet weekend on the BAM front. Not too many people ride when they are eating Turkey and watching football – which is what I’ll be doing. After an 8 mile run up Rocky Point off the 118 just East of Simi Valley here in the Los Angeles, California area. Running 8 miles up a steep hill = eating as much as I want with no guilt.
Hope everyone has a wonderful holiday weekend and good luck to anyone who is going to fight the throngs of humans at the malls on Black Friday.
