A perfect day for a ride.

It reached the mid 50's in Rhode Island yesterday. I managed to get in 50 miles in the late afternoon.
I took some photos of typical R.I. scenery. It was still warm after dark, compared to how it has been.
Last night I was convinced that spring is here to stay. This morning the forecast is for 5" of snow tonight.
I am still in denial about that. I don't think I can handle it!!

LOL Same deal here in central PA. Yesterday was low 50s and bright sunshine and today it was half raining and half snowing when I left for work (in my car ). The forecast for the next week is in the 40s and rain just about every day.

I did get to pick up my son from daycare on my bike (with trailercycle) and we went on a short ride. I can't wait until the weather is consistantly nicer.

I don't know if I can handle it!! Forecasts call for possibly a foot of snow, and I thought I would be able to pull my bike out

It's a bike path. Made from an old railroad track. All over the USA they are being converted.

Here are some photos from a track that is still dirt but will eventually be paved. I though you might like to see the old train trestle that the trail goes over. Look close at the picture from the bottom up, you can see Pete waving behind the screen.

Why not? I'd be interested.

The bridge pictures are from the middle of last summer, it does NOT look like that now.

Actually it looks like autumn with the leaves turning red. It's still in the 40s here but to me that is perfect riding weather after the long super-snowy winter.

Late March in Austin is wonderful...78 degrees, blue clear sky. The only appropriate word for the weather that we have had over the last 5 days is Heaven...

No, no ride for the roses for me. I have a road bike but I only use it for cardio workouts. I like to stick to the mtn bike side of things. It really has been nice down here the past week or so. Highs between 78-83 and lows between 50-55. I have been wearing shorts 24hours a day. This really is a great town, too bad all the movie stars and mtv crap all want to be here.
