I rode the Tanglefoot Trail in N. MS on Friday, and then the Natchez Trace in TN on Saturday.

The 23rd annual Tour de Bronx was yesterday under sunny skies and comfortable temperatures. A fun time had by thousands with hills and strong winds to contend with. 50 miles of enjoyment with friends and cyclists of all types. I chatted with a few very knowledgable C&V riders while waiting at the start and also at the break spots.

Cyclocross season is upon us, so most of my riding now is around 1 1/2 mile laps. Our team is supporting a Junior Squad of 30 young riders this year. Watching all those youngsters on the course is a real high point of my day at the races!

From yesterday's ride:



Not being able to see the rocks and roots under the layer of leaves keeps things interesting. Especially some of the steeper descents with similar cover... Good fun letting the bike move around under the hands and feet at speed.



Not quite passable by bike, pretty view off the side though:

Not today, but most recently on Monday and yesterday my bro-in-law and I did some miles on the C&O Canal Towpath from Williamsport MD almost to Hancock MD. Beautiful fall colors but mighty cool in the mornings.

Rain let up this morning so I got out for another ride out on the Middle Fork Road.
The Middle fork road is now paved by NBend, on Flickr

This forest service road was closed all summer during the mid-week for a paving project, due to be finished next year.

It is still a work in progress.

This becoming one of my favorite local roads. It follows the Middle Fork of the Snoqualmie River from just outside North Bend into the Mountains.

There are no houses or other developments out here…just campgrounds, hiking trails, and fishing holes so traffic is minimal and the pavement is sublime.

I turned around at the trailhead to the Middle Fork Trail and was back home by noon to resume working on my house. It was a nice little morning ride

@northbend, those are some of the most beautiful pictures in a while, IMHO. You are lucky to have such a nice area to ride in, and the pavement is head and shoulders above what NW Florida has to offer. Nice bike, too.

Just got back from a nice 17.30 mile ride before I have to get back to my school bus for the afternoon runs....

Below are some photos that I took along the way.

Thanks Bill, I do appreciate where I live and try to express it with photos when I ride.

This time of the year though I think Florida weather would be a nice alternative!

[MENTION=114373]northbend[/MENTION] Our weather has been abnormally warm the last couple of falls and winters, this one is keeping it up. We had a brief Fall, starting last Friday, but its been highs in the high 70s -mid 80s since Wednesday. No rain for the entire month of October so far, and none is forecast either. I'm taking advantage of every minute of this gift.

Got out in the rain for a couple-plus hours. I love riding in the rain, as long as I don't fall of course. And I'm glad to have recently added a titanium bike so frame rust isn't a concern in foul weather.



There's a neat mini steam train that runs through a miniature world in the woods of Tilden Park in the east bay hills. Cheap and fun for kids. And dogs can ride free!



A couple wildlife shots. You may have to look closely to see the wild turkeys in the first pick. They started to scamper off when I stopped. I think they sense Thanksgiving is coming.

Nice pics from Pennsylvania!

We didn't go north exactly and we didn't go south exactly. Sort of northwest. We did our usual run, 49.75 miles from Waltham to Carlisle, the one in Massachusetts, not the one in Pennsylvania. Arrived about 11:30, departed about 15 minutes later, ate lunch in Concord Center.

Lots of goings-on in Carlisle though. Lots of color and bikes.



The bike I'm standing in front of and studying is a new Co-Motion tandem which rolled in about 5 minutes after we did. The couple riding it, with whom we conversed of a few minutes, had just picked it up yesterday and this was its maiden voyage. It had one of them newfangled Rollhoff (or Roll off or Rholoff orRohloff or however it is spelt) drive trains with rubber belts instead of chains, no front shifting, and 14 speeds inside the rear hub via planetary gears. And wicked big tires, like 48-622. I told them our vintage tandem had (nyah!) 15 speeds!

It wouldn't be a great ride without a picnic.

Drove into Mid-MO for a ride I have been wanting to do. Started from McKittrick on the Katy Trail, rode east to MO-94 and then to Massas Creek Road. I had found the road as part of another ride on RideWithGPS and thought it might make an interesting ride up to Jonesboro, a small town to the north. I was hoping to catch some good fall colors also

It is an interesing ride for which my gravel grinder Lejeune is not the best choice. Road surface varied from soft sand to large rocks. I managed to go about half way and decided discretion was the better part of pushing on. My Lejeune was dancing on the rocks and even with me trying to not use a death grip, my arms and upper body were taking a beating. While there was some color, not anything near max potential.

I think this one might call for an MTB, or something with suspension up front. Definitely tires bigger than 32mm even though I was running them pretty soft.

We've had rain something like 25 out of the last 30 days, so it was nice to have better weather to take in the last of the autumn leaves. Rode up a newly graded and soon to be paved greenway in the city and along the Seawall:
