Post-a-pic

I ride a lot and take lots of pictures. Not all rides deserve a long narrative and not all pictures are interesting enough for posting here of BF50+. So, let's try this. I'm going to post one picture from today's ride. Minimal explanation. I'm not looking for comments. I invite each of you to post one picture from recent rides (OK, two if you just have to). It could be action, people around a pie, scenery, anything. Let's see if the thread goes for a while.

This was taken on the beautifully named "Dogbar Road" north of Auburn CA. It's steeper than it looks.

Here is a picture from Saturday. We were regrouping just outside of Hidden Valley,(where the Lake Sherwood Country Club is).

I'm on the right in the blue jersey.

This is a picture from what may prove to be my last ride of the season two weekends ago. I've been busy since and the weather is starting to get nasty. The couple of unseasonally warm days we had last week found me working. Arrrgh!

The Macdonald Campus of McGill University. These are the Faculty of Agriculture fields

This are one great looking group. I'm guessing rides are fun with 'em.

Yes, fun and fast! This is only part of the regular group! It's such a big club that there are always people to ride with. I've made some pretty good friends through the club.

This was taken a couple week ago. We delayed the ride for about an hour as it was too foggy to ride the roads.

A buddy and I drove a few hours North last week and rode with a couple internet friends.

Here's the sign every cyclist looks for:
