✊ from @civil_bikes - Sunday's bike tour is deep in my heart! It was a new tour is compressed into a small area. Always so much to see and learn. History by bike is fun! We #keepitreal by talking about how education has served to erase the historical presence and fully capture the realities of black people and other marginalized people.

Stanley sure has been a sport about #santaclarita history! Around here 4th graders do the work he’s been doing as they learn more about where they live (he’s a little advanced, so he can handle it). Today we visited the Tesoro Adobe, the homestead of silent film star, Harry Carey, Sr. Part of the Rancho Tesoro del Valle. Reading the headstone, Stanley learned all about the colorful history of the ranch. Out here Western life and art are never two distinct things, and both have been inseparable since Western movies became big business in Hollywood. The other spot we visited was much older, and had to do with the real founding of the Los Angeles area during the California Mission system. The historical marker was all fenced in, unreachable, and pretty neglected. All the same, it documented how most of Santa Clarita was once a huge ranch itself, called Rancho San Francisco. The area was mostly inhabited by Native Americans, who were moved out (of course) and then the land was farmed, and grazed to feed and serve the people of the San Fernando Mission, found in the broad valley to the south. #flatstanley #flatstanleyinmypocket #socalhistory #ranchotesoro #tesorodelvalle #oldwest #silentfilm #californiasgold #historybybike #biketourism #bikesantaclarita #bikelife #skratchambassador #skratchlabs

Today was a fine day for a picnic, so Stan hopped into the jersey pocket and we headed east, to the Placerita Nature Center to visit the Oak of the Golden Dream. After a quick stop at Maria’s Deli for sandwiches, we picked up that other dentist, the one with the #smuddesmile, and spun our way uphill to our picnic stop. Tucked in the canyon is the oak where gold was found, clinging to the roots of onions (!) by a man who dreamt of gold while sleeping under the tree. It’s like a fairy tale, except the authenticated find did really happen! It happened 6 years before the discovery in NorCal would start the famous California Gold Rush and waves of immigration by many other dreamers. #flatstanley #placeritacanyon #placeritanaturecenter #oakofthegoldendream #santaclarita #bikesantaclarita #socalhistory #historybybike #mariasdeli #bikepicnic #biketourism #bikelife #bikefriends #flatstanleyinmypocket #skratchambassador #skratchlabs

Sunday is a #scvpedalingposse ride day! Today Flat Stanley tucked in and took a ride with us up #sanfrancisquitocanyon and over to #lakehughesroad overlooking #lakecastaic by way of the recently paved Dry Gulch. We made sure to show him the #californiahistoriclandmark plaque at the base of the climb that commemorates the breaking of the #stfrancisdam - one of the worst man-made disasters in U.S. history. We stopped at the top too, for the views, and to wait for our friends. Good ride day! #flatstanley #flatstanleyinmypocket #grouprides #socalcycling #cycling #bikesantaclarita #santaclaritavalley #angelesnationalforest #historybybike #skratchambassador #skratchlabs

#Back2back #biketours last night (more on that later) and a late morning afternoon ride with two academics from Isreal. Wow! Lots to talk over, the husband had studied at Howard University, my brother goes to synagogue, the wife said Atlanta was a "dream" to bike through!! Their home city is more dense, compact, lots of pedestrians, motor- vehicle traffic, and are without infrastructure to support safe cycling! 🤔 ATL, we got a good thing going!! Yep! ! We've new bikes!! Check em out!! www.civilbikes.com

On the east side of the Capitol lawn, there is a bit of light construction taking place, design of a pedestal. It will hold a statue of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. designed and created by artist Martin Dawe. #georgiastatecapitol #drking #commemorative #statue www.civilbikes.com

Civil Bikes and @Cordillera.Apothecary are joining forces to offer a new tour! We will take guests on a guided ride to meet plants that are living in the landscape. The plants are carefully selected to reflect both place- some natives, non-native and both self-seeded and none. You'll learn more about the horticulture and how to embrace them for personal use and healing.

Tours are eventful when travelling on a bicyle, having the opportunity to engage someone or be engaged, make it never a dull moment! ! As we rolled up to the Capital, we arrived to see construction workers taking a break on the shade of magnolia branches. The east side of the building, is under-going some renovation. The Monument to the Black Legislators who were expelled from serving is being moved and a bigger than life sized statue if Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. is in the process of being added. Fernando, the construction lead, came over and showed us the details of what the site will ultimately look like!! How exciting!! Have a look! www.civilbikes.com

A few weeks ago lead a tour, stopped at the Georgia State Capital. It's one of the stops on a current tour and the statue was down for the count, there was some repair happening in the area. I was thrown aback and experienced physic pain. That may be extreme but it was disturbing and took me a while to get back on my game. The group became occupied with other items hanging out in the landscape. The reality hit home hard, when some form of monument does not exist, we haven't a clue of the history. Markers, signs, commissioned art and the like are crucial. If they fail to be present, there isn't anything to remind us that something special, someone outstanding, or some price was paid. Hopefully the art work is up and all is back to the usual however the impression that memory is fleeting remains. How do we remember when markers are no longer? How to we preserve markers? What is my part in all of this? History is personal. It's our lifeline to better tomorrows. Seriously. www.civilbikes.com #CivilBikesChapbookProject Join us for a tour, www.civilbikes.com/events

#StoneMountain is a favorite of many, this outcropping of granite rock, over 280 million years has seen everything from pre-historic times, Indigenous American civilizations, European colonization of the region, newly freed enslaved, rise of KKK, and now these multiplicity of human expression, language, culture, color, identity. .. a space to #riseup www.civilbikes.com

Yes, I do stop at all historical markers, even if they are only written in Español or Catalan. This medieval Roman bridge in Gualta, a town surrounded by water bu both the Ter and the Daro Rivers, hosted my @cannondalepro bicycle today! This water saved the town when Napoleon and his French troops invaded the area in 1809. The town destroyed the bridge and Napoleon's troops were stopped and the town was not invaded. Could they not problem solve, but that is besides the point. The bridge is worn with cart tracks and I tried to leave a few of my own tracks, but good luck with these flawless @maviccycling wheels! The bridge was rebuilt following its town saving destruction. It was actually relatively difficult to navigate my @ridecannondale bike across its rugged terrain, but I'm no #Napoleon. I conquered this bridge, town, and ride! This bridge existed 1000 years before Napoleon and will continue to exist 1000 years after him! #GualtaBridge #CostaBrava #Gualta #napolean #historybybike #bikeadventures #wheninspain #roadslikethese #gironabybike #girlsandbikes #amtadventures #bikelife #exploringbybike #bikelove #historicalplace
