Not much color but the big bluestem grass looked nice here. A windy but very enjoyable ride on my 1000 yesterday.

My friend invited me on a 40 mile bike ride - a social ride. We met at a park in N. Portland, rode up Williams to Ainsworth, then west to Willamette Blvd to the St. John's bridge (this is the bridge that the "Shell-No" protestors hung from a couple of months ago to try to stop the ship going to the arctic. This saved us from having to go through the busy, industrial part of Hwy 30 closer to Portland). Once onto Hwy 30 we headed west a few miles to get to the bridge onto Sauvie's Island, where the locals either love cyclists or hate them. This island is a very popular spot for cyclists but the island is designed for auto traffic. Lots of farms, beaches, a nude beach, oak forests and wintering spots for migratory birds (tundra swans). We did the 15 mile loop around the island which is very flat, and stopped at a popular pumpkin patch/country store farm, rode our bikes out to and around the patch. All in all it was a nice ride and I'd do it again with friends. I was not on a classic/vintage bike but there was one in the group.

Not much fall color in the high desert, but this is on a century ride in southern Nevada called the "Park to Park Pedal". This is at a place called Miller Point in Cathedral Gorge State Park.

My wife and I rode Saturday on roads and Sunday on a rail trail.

Who ever heard of U pick pizza?



Kyserike is one of the hamlets in the Town of Marbletown, NY.



This didn't come out so well since I took it from the bike in motion. There is a light at the end of the tunnel formed by the trees.



Here is my wife, ahead of me. It was nearly sunset.

Only rode a few blocks today because the sun was hiding most of the day and rain was intermittent. Here is the fall color off my front porch.

This part of North Carolina doesn't have fall.

We have two seasons, with a transition weekend between them:
1-Hot
2-Not so hot.

Once in a while, we get a day or three of winter.
It snows, widespread panic and chaos ensues.
We're out of school for a week while it melts in the shady spots.
Then it's not so hot again.

Here's a shot of part of my bike commute... a local road going up the Illinois River bluffs, called Singing Woods road.

How does that work? Appleton being associated as close to Door County... I guess everything north of Port Washington or Campbellsport is "up north" to me.
