The best rides are the ones you don’t want to end. And when they do come to an end, chances are it is because the sun is going down. This month’s Trail Mix takes a look at riders finishing really great rides.
That’s my friend (Matthew Jenks) and myself in profile riding the Chumash Trail in Simi Valley at sunset. My favorite evening ride! Matt’s wife, Julia, snapped this one during a quick pause as we raced down in the twilight glow of orange and purple.

Riding into the sunset (or away from it) after seven hours of riding trails, hills and the occasional downhill in and around my beautiful city of Burnaby, British Columbia, Canada, I finish off with a nice relaxing ride through a park called Deer Lake Park on my way home. I happen to catch the sun setting in the background, so it was a great photo opportunity! Oh, and I lost 7 pounds during that ride!
