Sundays ride!

Well I broke down and did that "Road thing" I did about 31 miles. I had a great time and found a new loop starting from home. I will most likely be doing more of this loop! Found a sweet old motor home (For sale even) along with looking out onto the beautiful mountain view. Only downside was I was out longer than I realized and finished in dark.... with no headlight. Luckily I had my tail lights still on the bike.

Very nice. I should visit Colorado someday. It looks like a heck of a place to ride.

It's a fun pace no doubt. There are many rides to do.

It's in the fields, in the mtns, in the hills (as seen by my other post) but where I live and in the cities it's gone. We are actually in bad need of snow in Colorado. The ski resorts are currently well below average.

Nice pics (like usual)!

If I could ask, why do you have your handlebars pointed down like that? It would seem to me that if you ride on the hoods that would be a bit incomfortable.

That's where it is most comfortable for me. And they are actually level on the top/bottom it just looks more dramatic in the pics, that being said I find the bars to narrow.. someday I will upgrade that.
