Key Largo, eh? Always wanted to visit there, and wondered what it's like. Post up some other pix if you got 'em!

Wildflowers along the bike path this AM. I've missed my commute!

Playing around with the camera today. Set for a slow shutter speed and hoped for the best. It came out better than I expected!

Sometimes its not what happens on the bike that tells the story. I did the Wildflower Century last weekend, and it was a tad wet. This is the lunch stop, which featured a very popular "Heated Room". As we were sitting around munching on some quite delicious food, one of the volunteers came through and reported that the road was dry the rest of the way in.



While not nearly as glamorous as biker 395's ride to work, this is a shot along my commute, showing the San Francisco skyline from across the bay in Alameda.

^ Nice!

It wasn't really so glamorous on the way home last evening. I had a 15 MPH headwind and this to boot:

Yep. Commuted to and from work Thursday and Friday and did a short 30 mile 1700 footer on Sunday.

I was a little sore Sunday afternoon, so I decided to drive today. I really, really, really don't want to relapse.

My photo of the week.... as in, it's been a week and I still don't have a replacement. Ordered one from the LBS, which supposedly arrived this morning.

Made it home just as the first rain drops began to fall. I'm glad to report from inside where it's warm and dry we missed the big storm with lots of wind and rain. Oddly however, the sun is shining now even as it continues to rain.

Biggest frog I've ever seen. Note Roubaix in background!

He's probably headed to the Great Calavaras County Frog Jumping Contest, I understand Mark Twain was there once.

Mother's day ride: My bike in front of Tumble Falls, just off Route 29 and north of Bulls Island near the Delaware River in NJ. There's a little water coming over the falls of you look closely. Have to have a downpour to for it to look like a real waterfall. This is the start of a short, but steep (12%) climb.

Nice shot, it reminds me of the Frank Lloyd Wright home, Falling Water, with the stone "staircase effect". Looks like a prime ridng area from your picture.
