    Ride the other Day (Pics)

    Pics from the ride the other day. One of a few places in the country without sand and with mountains if you can call them that.







    Fun going down, mostly impossible to go up

    Wow, that is what I call barren. What was the temperature like during that ride?

    Here's one for a comparison I took a couple of weeks ago. Mainly a photo of my new bike, but its in the Shenandoah Valley a few miles out in the boonies, next to a trout stream.

    I spent a few weeks on a project (for Etisalat) in Dubai (even took a trip over to Abu Dabi) some years ago. It was a rather "chilly" 100F (combined with about 95% humidity) in September.
