    Ride Report Slide Show

    Went on a great 38 mile ride near Crescent City, CA yesterday. Strong headwinds up, and wonderful tailwinds back.

    I'm fighting against photobucket to get a full screen slide show, let me know if this solution works well for you. You must eliminate any sidebars (favorites, etc.), and choose View/Full Screen in your browser before you click on the link below.

    What a sweet day for you two....cows and sea-shots and each other.

    Very nice. Looks just like Central Indiana except for everything but the cows.

    Great photos. We really enjoyed them.

    There is still snow on the ground here so watching your slide show sure makes us jealous!!

    Great scenery. I had to look on the map to find Crescent City. You are very northern California.

    It's stopped raining in Northern California?!?

    Thanks for the show. What a beautiful day in a beautiful place.

    Beautiful place! I spent a week of vacation there nearly thirty years ago. I'd like to go back, this time with a bike.
