    My hybrid took me on an 18mi roundtrip ride to Cherry Creek State Park. The admission is free for cyclists . I went there with my brother. He rode his Specialized MTB with knobby tires (but not so knobby that they slowed him down).

    I took a bunch of pictures with my iPhone and merged them together with Photobucket's Photomerge automated script. It's really quite cool!

    I saw this on a bench that we were sitting on:



    Our bikes. His bike has a rack on it, with a crate attached to it with my backpack in it and our helmets. Oh and I forgot to get the drivetrain side of the bikes. Oops

    This one is roughly 2 miles from the Missouri River. The water levels are normally no where near this high.



    This one is roughly 1.5 miles from home. This creek is usually close to bottom, maybe 2-3 feet of water. Now it is running close to 8-10 feet of crest! From top to bottom is I would guess 20-25 feet. All of this thanks to the dam releases north of us in South Dakota. Hopefully doesn't affect College World Series as me and the wife have 2 tickets to championship game #2 6 rows behind homeplate. Nice thing got the longest ride in since buying the bike, close to 9 miles averaging 12.8 miles per hour. Thats with a little walk up a 20-25 degree hill going home too. The cardio is starting to return thank god! My recovery time is starting to really diminish once I get back home.

    To the 45 mile marker on the C&O Canal tow path, which is about 51 miles from my home, so roundtrip over 100 miles! On a mountain bike, 83 of the miles off-road (unpaved). I didn't realize I was only 15 miles from West Virginia. Someday maybe I can make it to Harper's Ferry for the double metric. Someday when I've forgotten how hard today's ride was. In my head were the words of 65er, "Each of my bikes do the big C at some point." (paraphrased, can't recall the exact words). This ride was inspired by jimbojonez who routinely makes long rides on unpaved bike trails.

    I went for a ride from federal way to gig harbor, about 54 miles. It was a great day for a ride but there were way too many hills.

    No charge, and a pretty nice bike path too. Poorly marked in a couple places but it made for a real nice ride.

    I can now say all of my bikes have gone 100+ miles. The Cannondale has been neglected, I've been riding the MTB everywhere for the last couple of weeks. So I took it out for a variation of the Waterford Double Cross, so named because it crosses both the Potomac River and a mountain range twice. I did not ride the section between White's Ferry and the W&OD rail trail, 4.6 miles along side Route 15 "HEAVY TRAFFIC - Use Gravel Shoulder!".

    The mountain range is a small one and the first crossing follows an old railroad line which goes through at a point of least resistance, Clark's Gap. The second crossing on Furnace Mountain road is steeper, winding, and unpaved "(CAUTION: Loose Gravel Road, Watch for Dogs!)", but only about 2 1/2 miles long. The climb was a lot shorter than the descent, you get on Furnace Mountain Road at a higher elevation than where you leave it. The downhill was scary fun, the highlight of the ride.

    I crossed the Potomac at Key Bridge in Georgetown.


    I saw another one of these guys, this one on the W&OD near Herndon.


    You can see for miles on long straight sections of the W&OD.


    The Taylorstown General Store has gone out of business.


    The second river crossing at Point of Rocks.




    Kayakers on the canal.


    Another one of these guys.


    The canal and towpath.


    Geese feeding in rapids above Great Falls.


    Total distance 116 miles. Elapsed time including stops 8:34.

    Thanks. I never rode over 100 miles before this year. Now I've done it three times. BikeForums is responsible.

    68 km on a road loop as far as Shanghai's only 'mountain', Sheshan. Route here.

    Riding time was 2 hours 37 minutes (total time was a little more than 3 hours), for an average speed on the bike of 26km/h.

    Killa Mom, haha, love it! The bike will be there when you get back. I hope your husband's condition improves.

    Nice ride. Good pace especially for city riding!

    Thanks. Yeah, I was doing occasional long rides (up to 90 miles) many many years ago before I became a messenger. After that happened I figured I saw enough pavement during the week and restricted my recreational riding to mountain biking. I haven't been mountain biking in years though...

    I know how you feel. That's why my poor road bike sits under a cover for weeks on end. Sunday is my only rest day and I ususally have domestic duties then. Maybe a few early early Sunday morning rides are in order over summer.

    My hybrid took me on a 26mi r/t ride via the Highline Canal trail, Cherry Creek trail, and the South Platte River trail. We stopped in Confluence park. There were SO many people out there.

    Saturday I rode about 34 miles round-trip on a portion of the Westchester (NY) North County Trailway, a rail-to-trail paved path. I disturbed many birds, some bullfrogs, and at least two deer. I enjoyed a leisurely lunch at a restaurant near the top of the trail with family and friends. There's a beautiful view from the bridge at Croton Reservoir part-way up, and you ride on a fairly level path with canyons or tall hills on either side of you for a big portion of it. There's only a mile or two on-road. Going northbound it seems like it's mostly uphill, so next time I'm going to try parking near Pleasantville and taking Metro North to Brewster, NY, then biking southbound on the trail.

    @qmsdc15: Thanks, he's home and on the mend. The mountain isn't looking much smaller but grandson rode the bike around the block the other day. I'm sure it was happy to get out of the driveway. Everyone who sees it is amazed that it looks so tall and is an XS. I guess we're just not used to "real" bikes.

    @everyone: I enjoy viewing the pix here and fantasizing about actually riding my new bike somewhere!

    Do you guys enjoy the timelapse videos I have been doing? I haven't gotten around to actually recording until Sunday. I will edit the video and have it ready tomorrow (Tues June 5). But if you guys don't really like the videos, I will stop. I need to know. Thanks
