The fall colors have been so beautiful here in Minnesota that I took my camera along on my rides the last couple of mornings. Here are a few shots of my last two daily rides:

Presque Isle Bay, Erie PA. The ship in the back ground is the Brig Niagra, from the War of 1812.

The route to my new home takes me through a small park located in a marina, where I sometimes stop for a quick sip of water and to chill out from all the afternoon traffic.

An action shot from Saturday's century with AHultin. Plenty of climbing and lots of 8-10 % climbs along the way.

In action!

"Plenty of Climbing" is right. You and AHultin are gluttons for punishment and tough as nails in my eyes.

I just got a job in downtown Minneapolis. While riding there to check out the office, I snapped this photo in Loring Park.

From my ride on 10/14
Cloudy and overcast, but perfect temps. Wind was blowing 20mph though and gusting to 30! I was riding with my nephew though which is always fun! This is SE Indiana.




I was trying to get the hawk that was flying in the middle left of the pic. Yep, that tiny black dot. The IPhone isn't cutting it in the photography dept, but its all I have right now.

You totally could have pulled off a funny story about not seeing some BMX guy's left over ramp.

A point and shoot little Canon PowerShot A1100 IS for the photos and a FLip recorder for the videos.

This is my daily ride as of right now. I have a new bike on it;s way for next season. Just a few more OT shifts and I will be ordering. The Madone has been a great bike but I got the urge for another.
