Today's Ride w/PICS - Water as a Mirror!

- i like to post pics from my rides, and although i've already posted a series on this particular ride, i was struck today by how the same ride can be somehow different on different days...

- so here are four shots i took after Nature literally forced me off my bike (making me think i should take up watercolors?) ... i thought i'd share [insert sounds of crickets, frogs, and a calling limpkin]:

first bend on a normal loop:



around the corner:



a bit further:

Nice pics. Nice photography.
Is that a hill in the 3rd pic or an overpass?

Yes, I know overpasses ARE hills in FL.

- it's a hill... and to simulate hills down here, we use 40mph headwinds... it's not as easy to ride down here as some folks may think... (no coasting, always pedaling)
