    New Post Pictures from Your Ride Thread

    I couldn't find the old picture thread so I'm starting a new one. It will load faster anyway.

    Here's my contribution from today.

    I recently made a handlebar mount for my camera. Now with the bike-cam, I can take (and have taken) hundreds of photos during a single ride.

    Here are three of the pics I took on the commute to work the other morning along the Erie Canalway MUP.

    Here is a pic of my wife on Sunday's ride to the coast climbing Highway 84. She is riding her Orbea Orca with a new Quarq compact double power meter and new Sram Red gruppo.

    I thought it may have been the average power for the ride.

    Sure it was, why not? If the ride is around 20 min or less, no problem.

    Our club held the annual Wright Wride Sunday. My friends and I opted for the 50 mile route. The first 30 miles was quite hilly for this area. The Garmin saw quite a few 9%+ grades

    I took this one at the half way point on one of the hills.
    [IMG][/IMG]

    After the hills and lunch the last 20 miles was nice rollers. It's been a cool summer and it isn't often we see this much green in August. In fact it only got into the high 60's Sunday and many were wearing arm warmers and jackets....something we seldom do in August
    [IMG][/IMG]

    We stopped for a short break and this was our welcoming committee. After sniffing the bike tires and checking us out he continued into the beans to hunt

    I'd like to hear how the Quark works for her. Also how it interfaces with the 705. BTW, that bike is too clean. She needs to ride it more.

    The installation and setup of the Quarq is very simple. You pair the Quarq with the 705 and that is all there is to it. The 705 interfaces with Cycling Peaks by dragging and dropping history files from the 705 into her journal. It is very slick.

    As far as using power, she loves it. She is producing more power during her intervals. Much is due to knowing the target power, hitting it and holding it.
    ,
    Well, it is my job to keep the bike clean, and it is depicted after we picked it up from the shop after the installation of the Quarq and new gruppo - new cassette, chain, bar tape and crank and chain rings.

    Hi,

    Here's a photo from this evening's ride (race):



    Managed to win the last race of the series -- Masters 40+. I was in a two-man breakaway for the last 3 miles of the 24 mile race. We were working together pretty well and coming out of turn 4 I was on his wheel and decided to go.

    I was able to hold off the field. He got caught by the front of the field and finished 4th.
    Thanks.

    When you got to go ,you got to go. You did it right.

    Great job, Cleave! Good to see you at the Cool Breeze. Here is a shot at the start. I'm in the center of the pic.

    I haven't won many races lately but I had "glad to be alive" ride this morning.

    The great thing about riding in semi-rural Kentucky is that they are very welcoming of bikers like us. Here is a sign at the parking lot of a tavern/liquor store that I passed on today's ride.


    I would have hung around and knocked a few down but I wanted to get my ride in before it got too hot today. That, and I was afraid I might get beat up.

    I stopped at Granny's Restaurant, Tool Shed, and Cat House (just kidding about the cats, I didn't see any) and here is my ride, right next to some mean hardware for sale:

    Have you ever won one? We will let you go back as far as grade school and include all sports.

    I smoked some guy in the Walmart parking lot who was operating a motorized wheel chair. Of course, he didn't know we were racing, so maybe it wasn't all that impressive I guess.

    Here's a manipulated (can you tell?) shot of our little group drafting today. We did 50 miles, including a 3 mile climb for a total of 3300 feet of climbing. I don't like climbing.

    I'm sure this win will sucker you in for another 35 years! It's great to have a picture of the decisive move as well!

    By the way, BikeWNC, you may have been looking for the "post-a-pic" series of threads for pictures.

    It must have been buried because I never found it. Oh well, we needed something to get the pics flowing again. Coming into Fall soon, so there ought to be some dandies!
