Medora Elf Ride

freereanger and I went looking for elves today during a ride known locally as the Elf Ride. It goes through forests so deep that elves are rumored to live there.

We didn't find any elves, but we did find a fred:

And an OCP:

Lots of trees in which an elf might easily have been found:

And for once (twice, actually) freeranger comes in handy (don't ask):

And if the photos don't show, it's because I don't have the hang of it yet.

Ah, the sight of those two LeMonds just makes my heart beat fast.
Hate to see one belly up, though

Kentuckians are VERY MUCH into college sports. Note the Cardinal on the driveway, in the upper left corner of the pic where I'm working on the bike!

That one pic could be any road in New England. Are you sure you were still in Kentucky?

Looks to me like you're on somebody's driveway in St. Louis Missouri....
