Thanks ...The roads can be crowded on weekends, but during the weekdays when I ride, it's pretty quiet.
In addition to the roads, there are also many miles of bike paths ( paved) and mountain bike trails (dirt).
Here's a few pics ....

Summit County Colorado is known mostly for skiing (my favorite !) , but bicycling isn't far behind. I'll be riding these same roads and trails on the Bike Friday this summer.

Thanks cpg and bhkyte for your comments and to everyone for tolerating my off-topic posts

Last fall, it frolicked on some very lovely rocks in Colorado:







Earlier that year it got a little close to the edge during a ride atop the Palisades Cliffs in Washington:




The little critter seems to be always trying to interbreed with larger, non-folding brethren:








Sometimes it completely covers itself in filth and collapses, in an apparent attempt at camouflage:




Approximately once every two years, colorful appendages sprout to carry beer and baggage, tires slicken to suit a paved environment, and the creature transforms into a true beast of burden for a few days:




And very rarely, a photographic image is captured of a half-crazed human trying to tame the wild beast in its natural habitat:




So, my ongoing folding 20er wilderness adventures continue, many more of which are documented in colorful (and ad-free!) detail here for your enjoyment.

From Gaviota to Camino Cielo is quite a climb! Something like 3,500 ft above Santa Barbara and with an amazing view.

Breath-taking in every way! I started from closer, thankfully. Rode the top span, only a few dozen meters of climbing -- like having a grand meal that's all dessert.

Today mostly-flat along Cupertino & Palo Alto & in to the Bay:

When you post, give it an URL (instead of uploading a file) and uncheck "Retrieve remote file"

If you have your photo stored on your computer, upload it as big as you like to a free online photo hoster like imageshack,us (the hoster usually gives you the option to make it smaller when you upload if you want). Something like 800 x 600 should be OK.

Once you have uploaded your pic the hoster shows you a page with a few internet addresses for your photo (usually it will show you variants for thumbnails and 'direct' full photo - you want 'direct'.) Copy the whole URL (in my pic above it was http://img716.imageshack.us/img716/1695/lunapic1365418713868471.jpg) and paste it into your post on the forum.

Then just add [img] directly before the address and [/img] directly after. It should look something like this:

[img]http://img621.imageshack.us/img621/1905/billswildestride12.jpg[/img].

That's it!
