^ That's beautiful! I'll bet it really rocks in the fall.
Blue Ridge Parkway, my coldest ride of the year, about 23 degrees here:
2009 Cervelo R3SL TdF Edition, Ultegra Di2
2011 Cervelo R5, DA Di2
No bike riding for an entire week! It was a family Disneyland trip with the grandkids.
The photos were only added to show proof of why I have not ridden for an entire week….honest
My oldest granddaughter somehow turned into Merida from the toon Brave.
Then she suffered a horrible archery accident back in the hotel room.
My youngest grandkid fit right into Toon Town
I home now, it will be in the mid to high 60’s, I can’t wait for my ride in a couple of hours.
Not the best camera work but a splendid view of the Blue Ridge Mountains from Friday's ride. I was much higher up than the picture depicts.

Ride your Ride!!
I'm sorry to hear about your granddaughter's tragic archery accident. I hope she makes a full recovery from her traumatic brain injury.
How much wind do you typically get? Very, very nice are but it all appears to be out in the open!! I bet wind could really make or break a ride??
Ride your Ride!!
This is a section is in Sloan Canyon in Nevada. The Las Vegas Loop will be a 115 mile loop that circles Las Vegas, NV. Most of it is paved. This section is obviously not, but its not too tough. Vegas has a ton of good riding. If you get here, bring a bike.
Also, I really enjoy this whole post. This page has grandkids, playing with cameras and seeing real people. Love the 50+ thread.
I think its disgusting and terrible how people treat Lance Armstrong, especially after winning 7 Tour de France Titles while on drugs!

The wind wasn't bad at all, got just a little bit of headwind from Tomales down to the water, but that was it Actually most of the riding is in the valleys with the occasional climb up to the ridge top, and then a nice fast decent I've ridden this area a few times and haven't had bad winds.
I saw this in my church's parking lot this morning:
Aperture Science and the friendly machine *** turrets. Funny stuff.
No riding for me today. I am getting sick of this sight, personally:
Not too windy out here but like everywhere we can get all types of weather. Yes we run the Central Oregon 500 at about the same time in june. It started as my 50th birthday week ride. Just me and mini mart support. The motto is ride, eat, sleep and repeat. The ride is a fund raiser for our local sports education foundation cycling program now and is on its second year of that. Last June we were hammered with rain and snow so we got that out of the way !! The fun part of the ride is that we have local volunteer guides to ride with the group each day.
Flippin great time.
PS: Just noticed that the fee for 5 days of cycling and road support is only $300(!) That is an great deal.

www.cycleoregon.com) says 895 - still not a bad price. After seeing all the pics you have been posting of your long distant rides, it sure is tempting! There is a lot of beautiful scenery out there to be seen!
We are looking at about 30 riders this year. Come Ride !!
This will be year 2 of running it as a organized ride. I did it for 3 years with mini mart support. Bend is great for riding road and Mt. I have another favorite ride that is a 100 mile road ride from home to East Lake at Newberry Crater just southeast of Bend. I meet my wife there with our camper. Switched out the Mt bike the next day and rode 50 miles home on single track. The picture is looking south from the rim trail open to hiking, and bikes.East lake view.jpg The trail follows the skyline rim from the peak at 8000'
