A few pics from Tuesday

My buddy and I went out for a ride, not sure on total mileage but with the heavy winds it was a well earned version. I had a blast and saw many great classic cars and other sights along the way. Once again I took the old Schwinn. Rode many trails I did not know but am glad to know now!









And my buddy looking to get out of the picture.... still got it!
