    Chasing Cloud Shadows

    On one of my recent rides
    http://www.mapmyride.com/routes/view/116154927
    I had a following wind on the way back. The road was straight and flat and I noticed that although it was one of those beautiful days when the sky is in motion and all seems right with the world, I always seemed to be in the shadow of a cloud overhead. Then I realized that I and the cloud were traveling South at approximately the same speed (18 mph). I speeded up a bit and started to reach the forward edge of the shadow. Slacked off and that edge moved ahead somewhat. Never experienced that before.

    "The bicycle, in the hands of a novice, is as alert and acute as a spirit-level in the detecting of delicate and vanishing shades of difference in these matters. It notices a rise where your untrained eye would not observe that one existed; it notices any decline which water will run down." -Mark Twain, "Taming the Bicycle"

    Nice... that's one of those interesting and novel things that can happen when you go out. I wish there were clouds around here right now...

    to old age and infirmity. You first.

    Lovely pictures.

    You should have put the effort to chasing down a rainbow. I hear there's a lot of money in it.
