    It's cherry blossom time in DC, so I did my yearly cherry blossom ride.
    Hit the major blossom viewing areas - Tidal Basin, Hains Point, Capitol Hill, National Arboretum, Takoma Park, Sligo Creek, Forest Glen and Kenwood (the last one is the best)

    Got a flat tire in the last mile, so I walked back. Will fix the tire later this week.

    I took this yesterday coming back home and it is one of my favourite weeping Cherry Blossoms. It's not in the most ideal garden, but I think it's spectacular in it's own right.

    I was off work today so I decided to do a test run for commuting. I know going to work on your day off is crazy. Somehow I turned a 9 mi round trip into 19 mi. I bonked way too far from home. I guess low carbs and cycling don't mix. I will get the balance with some practice.

    Great shots. Yes sadly rain and wind shortens the season.

    Great pics as always. Now if you had ridden your hybrid there instead of walking, you could have posted them here!

    It was originally scheduled for two weeks ago...the day is snowed. Postponed at the last minute and rescheduled.
    If the government shutdown had happened, it would have been canceled altogether.
    I could see some of the big kites from the other side of the river
    Looked like there were several hundred kites in the air at any given time.
    The multi-color one with two tails in the picture was about 12 feet across. I watched them launch it and after 10 minutes it had climbed really high.

    I finally got around to installing super-low climbing gears on my Sirrus, so I figured I needed to test it properly

    First it took me up to this hilarious sign in the middle of a climb:



    Next it took me past a roadie

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gXh-oO75xYc


    Then it took me up a hill I've never climbed before with a maximum grade of 17%

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5UoYR4Awhfk

    Then it took me up and down a few more hills and past one of my favorite signs:

    Then it took me up and down a few more hills and up the final sufferfest of a climb on this ride:

    You are right, that's why I posted them in foo. I was so jealous of the people riding the course.

    Funtastic. It's a great feeling when the package arrives from ebay or "Ireland"

    Absolutely wonderful. Going by what I see on bikeforms, the US has many beautiful cities.

    Did you also put reflective tape on the side of the crank arms? That way the cars behind you get some flashes from them.
