TQ 10 wheels
Oh and there were also lotsa butterflies, real pretty ones
SR 16 down the Capay Valley along Cache Creek
Yikes. Those first two pix look COLD!
This is near the top of the long climb from Panguitch to Cedar Breaks in Utah. The aspens at the top are beautiful!
From today, at the recently opened Big Four Bridge:
A rare occurrence on my road bike, but when I travel with my daughter it is way easier to get on the bike rack than my recumbotruck:
First ride of the year - had to detour around this spot!
Here in Cincinnati, a road / train bridge was converted to a pedestrian and bike bridge. It gets a lot of use.
Removed RR tracks on the left, walkway in the middle, and two lane road bridge converted to walking and biking on the right:
FS: Shimano DA 7900 brake calipers, DA 7900 Crankset 50/34 175mm and BB
Here is the Indiana side:
In fairness to the Hoosiers, I don't think they gave it the same budgetary priority.
When their side is complete, we'll have easy access to an extensive network of trails in Southern Indiana. It will be MUP heaven.
Portland "Cross Crusade"
VERY cold. It got so cold my camera quit working a mile later. We hit a white out with winds blowing 30 mph. Only about 100-150 of the 1500 made it up and over that day. The rest were either bussed from the top or they turned back around and were bused from Estes to Granby. A few were sent to the hospital.
Ride your Ride!!
Sorry ... gotta share this one of my little niece. I think she likes the bell.
While we are somewhat on the topic of bridges..... one of my favorites is the old Seven Mile Bridge that currently is opened for bikes and feet from Knight's Key to Pigeon Key in the Florida Keys. It's only a 2 mile ride, a slight detour from the Florida Keys Overseas Heritage Trail ending at Pigeon Key.. a great museum. The bridge has the Atlantic on one side and the Gulf on the other. Quite a sight
Speaking of bridges... A rare Google Maps photo actually showing people, taken my my friend Alan. This is an abandoned bridge, north of Princeton, NJ. That's me in the blue jacket, followed by Mike, a former 55+ state road racing champion, followed by my friend Bill, who is one of the top 50+ climbers in the state.
"It could be anything. Scrap booking, high-stakes poker, or the Santa Fe lifestyle. Just pick a dead-end and chill out 'till you die."
cycling is like baseball ~ it doesn't take much to make it interesting
Hmm. Bridges. (additional joke: They are all in Madison County!)
Next time I ride out that way I'll have to turn down Otis Redding Drive and go by the Big O Ranch where he lived and is buried. His wife still lives there.
Speaking of bridges, here's a couple of views from one I crossed on a dirt road yesterday.

The more you ride your bike, the less your ass will hurt.
