I was originally going to put this in the "Where did you ride today" thread, but it would only allow 10 pictures and I didn't want to take up two posts in the sticky. So...
I just finished a ride from Big Rapids, MI to Reed City and back on the White Pine Trail. It was my first time riding this area and I had a lot of fun stopping to snap pictures along the way. Here they are:
These signs marked the trail. I cheated a bit as this was taken on my way home, but it seemed like a good opener.
A good portion of the trail ran parallel to the Muskegon River.
I barely saw any other people all day, so I could get away with blocking the whole trail for pictures like this.
My helmet made a good makeshift tripod.
Yup, it's fall. Does anybody remember the recent thread on riding through leaves? I had to be very careful on this section of trail. Luckily there were no spills the entire trip.
I arrived at Reed City and discovered that it was necessary to reduce my speed.
Why is there a picture outside a bank? Well, I planned this ride to get lunch in Reed City. About three quarters of the way there I realized that I forgot my wallet. Luckily I was able to withdraw from my account with only my smile as ID.
I love pizza pie almost as much as cycling, which made this a great day. Pompeii's gets a two thumbs up. As a mushroom munchin' guy, all places are judged on quality of fungi, among other things. Pompeii's mushrooms were NOT from a can. A+
I had to carry my steel steed over this section of trail because of maintenance.
Goofing around. As long as I was going slow and the heart rate was low, I thought I'd stop for a fun shot. This time I had to add my left glove to my helmet to get the right angle.
