Rode a couple of rail trails in western Wisconsin today, the Red Cedar and Chippewa trails. Nice day, not too warm.

A big sky shot crossing the Chippewa River


Small waterfall, picture stop


Very spring-like and green along the Red Cedar river

Great shots.

Gravel bikes only or road bikes as well?

This time or year, road bikes with 25's aren't a problem (as long as they are not soft tread tires; 4000s2's good, masters maybe not). The trail is very packed, and once on the Chippewa trail, that's paved with the typical root driven bumps. Ideal is maybe 28's for this time of year. I rode it with the Trek 760 last year a couple times on 25's

In November the Croll with 2.3's had all it could do in the soft conditions, but now it's a speedway by comparison.

Falls to Falls. Airfield Falls is in the northwest corner of the county,


and then there's another waterfall in the southwest corner. It doesn't have a name as far as I know; I've started calling it Oakmont Falls.


Today's ride was 51 miles on my 1994 Nishiki Sport XRS.

Working off the burgers and dogs ride last night. Did a quick 20 up to Limerick Nuclear Generating Station and back on the Proteus. That's the funky steam cloud in the background.

I was 6'6", but now that I hit my 50's that number is going down to now 6'5.5". If I live long enough I may be able to ride "normal" sized bikes.

Been riding Metro Boston, Downeast Division. We rode the tandem around Acadia's Park Loop Road and then a bunch on the carriage roads. 35.5 miles total. A delightful day even if it did involve some really really really steep hills.





Today I rode the Grandis up Cadillac and Sharon hiked the south ridge trail.



We met at the top for lunch. Sharon said the blue and blue was, ah, bluetiful.



After descending Cadillac (which didn't take long ) I rode the Park Loop Road.



Overlooking the Atlantic Ocean.



Lunch yesterday:

Nice @jimmuller, between Sharon, you and the two bikes you have a bluetiful thing there. The third picture really gives an idea of the elevation.

Love these shots, for sure.

Your Grandis is such a beautiful bike.
