    Goats. Rent a ruminant was hired to clear some brambles under Interstate 5 on my commute. Kinda smells like a barnyard now.

    WHAT?!?!? How can that be legal?? I have never heard of such a thing and in fact I feel like that's a disaster waiting to happen!

    My vacation "commute" route

    My usual commute is pretty boring, mainly on surburban streets. However, I'm taking a week off this week and "commuting" daily on the Neuse River Trail, a new multi-use path that extends from Falls Lake dam around Raleigh to Clayton, NC. The trail is well paved and very scenic with numerous bridges and boardwalks over the river and nearby wetlands. I've ridden on the trail every day so far this week, but unfortunately it wouldn't work for my regular commute to work because it would increase the distance from about 30 to 60 miles.

    It doesn't snow all that often here. I just switch over to knobby MTB tires and I'm fine. Fresh snow is easy to ride in if it's not too deep. The day after the snow is usually the problem because they pretty much don't plow anything but the highways, so things can get icy. That usually only lasts one day, though. I can get through that day just fine on knobby MTB tires as long as I'm careful.

    Tarwheel, your commute is beautiful and all, and I'mma let you finish, but that bike is one of the most beautiful things ever seen of all time...OF ALL TIME!!

    P.s. What is that saddlebag rail I'm seeing? Sorry if you've been asked this already, but I like it!

    Beautiful shot! Might I inquire as to what photographic technological devilry you used to acquire such beautiful wide angles?

    I love this bike! It's a Ritchey Breakaway Cross. I picked up the frame used and built it up with a Soma steel fork. The bag is an Acorn Med-Large saddlebag, and I'm attaching it to the bike with a Carradice Bagman quick-release rack with the underside supports removed. The Bagman makes it very simple and quick to install or remove the saddlebag, which is nice for commuting.

    Thanks so much to both of you for answering my questions!
    @cccorlew, I bought a cheapo Canon Powershot A2300 for under $100 for ride pics, but when compared with the shots you've taken, it's obvious I got what I paid for. I would love to take the 40D on rides with me, but the weight/fear of breaking it are just too great. Kudos!
    @tarwheel, now that I think about it, you've already told me about the bike once before, lol...so many gorgeous bikes on this site; it's hard keeping up with them all. Thanks for letting me know about the Bagman...I might try to DIY something similar, or see if there are any cheap alternatives out there...truth be told, I love the aesthetics of how your bag is set up...it's simple, but you can upsize bags to hold pretty much anything you'd need! I already have racks on all of my bikes, but figured perhaps when I get done changing out some parts on the 2013 Racer, I might just set up something in a vein similar to yours.
    Ride what you like, how you like.

    A camera that doesn't suck is nice, but mostly I try to shoot a lot (really a lot) and then throw most of them away. Really. The garbbage can is your friend.

    This is a Fuji Finepix (kind of cheap, about $100 on eBay)

    Absolutely! I've got coworkers with no SLR/DSLR experience taking DSLR-quality shots with their iPhone 5/5s. When upgrade time comes around, I'll be getting one...in the meantime I just swiped my Accounting Mgr's iPhone 4, which is in surprisingly good shape! Definitely takes better photos than my old Rugby Smart.
