Finally, the best part of the day.

The only thing better than going to Acadia once a year is going twice!
Nice pictures. Would that last one be Mainely Meat by chance?
The South Ridge Trail is a good one and a nice side trip is the West Face Trail (very steep) down to Bubble Pond.

Acadia twice, yes!
Mainely Meat, in Town Hill, yes!
West Face Trail? Never done that one. Did do the gorge between Cadillac and Champlain a few years ago. Also steep! Around here everything is steep.

Bummer! It would have been great to do a ride together. So sorry, Top. Next time we'll keep you informed (until we forget).

My wife and I did a casual ride from Craggy Gardens to Mt. Mitchell near Asheville, NC. The Blue Ridge Parkway is truly amazing. I cant wait to ride more of it.

Here is a picture of our CV bikes enjoying one of the many views.

Great weather this morning here in CT. I got out pretty early on my Miyata touring bike. Very pleasant ride, even if the only picture I took came out a bit blurry.

Rode a few times this week, but this was the most fun. My son is hell-bent on skidding now, every time he has to stop. We had a great 8 mile ride through woods by his school.

Today (Sunday 9/20), I rode 23.75 miles along the James River here in Richmond, VA. I stayed away from downtown with the UCI Bike Races in town and numerous roads are closed.

But anyway, I rode from my house down to the river, and just kept following along Riverside Dr. I rode to Forest Hill Park's entrance and stopped at a kiosk just before the entrance, and took a photo. Behind the kiosk is a MTB trail and links up with Buttermilk Trail (a very nasty, gnarly, "black diamond" type of MTB trail). All in all, I did the 23.75 mi ride in 1:34 for a 15.3 mph pace.

Do you remember the restaurant in Pinole that was decorated in Hercules Dynamite stuff? I can't remember the name. I have an old kerosene ship's lantern that came from there.

The weather was beautiful today and just had to get a ride in. Took one of my usual routes on the Saddle River Trail and points off of it. Used my recently acquired Marin Eldridge Grade.

Yesterday. Independence Grove from the Des Plaines River Trail. Not Acadia, but pretty anyway! At the left further ahead on the trail were a Leopard Appaloosa and Chestnut out for a ride with their respective gentlemen. Slowed down and didn't ring the bells to pass. You can just see them to the left up ahead in the photo. Not sure why the photo uploads small, but click on it to see larger.

Today I just rode to and from work. 32 miles on the Bianchi. Dang, that's a nice bike that I don't ride often enough.

It's a bit chilly here in the northeast now. Temps about 51 when I started out this morning. Not much different when I arrived home.
