Sunday ride video and some pics

Another 42 miles! Ran into a few forum members along the way. Nice day and didn't feel too bad after 72 yesterday.

We, too, had no choice but to enjoy this awesome high pressure system we've been experiencing as of late.

78? Hmmm somebody said but it did dip down every now and then. Must have been 70 in some areas. Sun came and went, then came again, then went again etc.

Nice pics and video.

I am so jealous. It's 25 here with a foot of snow on the ground.

All I see is my basement walls as I toil away on my trainer.

I've got to move to sunny Cali.

Ouch! It's just so hard to imagine that living her in California. We miss all the coss country skiing and sleds but I'd rather ride my bike!

I am just curious. How far do you have to ride to be able to get 1,000 feet of climbing in? I don't imagine Indiana having lots of elevation gain.

I'm not sure if there is 1000 feet of elevation anywhere in the entire state LOL.

Seriously however, there are some hilly sections down towards southern Indiana. I should know, I drive up and down them every month when I go visit my son, but I've never ridden them. I'm more of a flat earth type; the flatter my ride the happier I am.

Well Indy, you don't know what fun is until you go downhill for over 8 miles without pedaling like you can here (Glendora, California) on Glendora Mountain Road. Then there is over 12 miles, more if you go past the cutoff, when coming down from Crystl Lake. 12 miles without having to pedal once. Granted, it's a b--ch getting up these, but it is all good once you hit the top.

Looks nice and sounds exciting, but I'll stick to my tabletop flat rides
