^ Sweet pix up there. That's some president's weekend trip!

We're getting new carpeting and paint in our office. What a flipping P-I-T-A. But on the bright side, I found a lot of old pix from previous bike tours. Gawd, it's been too long.

This is somewhere in South Dakota.

Very beautiful pictures, Pam, that is such wonderful country for riding trails it seems. Cyclist out there are very fortunate! Hopefully the drought will be broken soon, prayers and positive thoughts for rain and snow in the mountains.

I wore my Piet Mondrian-inspired La Vie Clare jersey for our Bike Forums ride through the Berkeley hills and came across this car at the top of Grizzly Peak Road. It was meant to be.

speaking of such, there is a bike tour in South Dakota in mid June. If I don't get into Ride the Rockies I might just look at that one.

Bill JUST FYI your prayers were answered in part - its been raining hard two days and more is predicted. Isn't an end to the drought but is helpful. Hopefully enough will fall to green up the hills...

Check out the photos of the surf we had down here over the weekend. Holy crap. I've been surfing since the 70s, and I've never seen it like this in the hood.

Blue sky and sunshine for a few hours today and then it is time to dig the bike up from the snow and go for a short ride - only the second this year. We haven't really seen the sun since last november here!





Greetings from the arctic circle,

That's an excellent 'The Walking Dead' vibe.
