Brick Ride. Arroyo Loops. Sundowners.

19.2 miles, 1:01:43 moving time, 666 ft elevation, 14 strava trophies.

Since the equinox passed, we’re on the short side of the sun. There’s a mental phenomena called sundowners, where old people get weird once the sun goes down. That’s me. Wikipedia says, “Sundowning is a psychological phenomenon associated with increased confusion and restlessness in patients with some form of dementia”

We rode a friendly loop around the bowl, then south along the Arroyo and Grand to SoPas. Right on Mission, Back onto Arroyo and back. It’s a beautiful scenic route. Old oaks trees shade the calm curves. Sunset in the Arroyo.

South Pasadena. SoPas. My home town. The is the end of Grand at Trader Joes, turning onto Mission. That’s our water tower up on the hill. I live up and over that hill, about a 1.5 miles from my house.
