Adventurous ride yesterday.
We soon enter a quiet canyon after leaving Leavenworth

Pavement ends and the road pitches upward. The climbing was not for the faint of heart

It took us hours of solid effort to reach the summit of Chumstick Mountain

But the long descent off of the Mtn was worth it

We reach pavement a few miles from the town of Cashmere where beer n grub awaits us.

After a late lunch we close the loop and ride back to the car in Leavenworth. A fine, full day of riding.

So was leavin' worth the effort? It sure looks like it!

My ride today was a peaceful commute in and a race against the devil on the way home. Made it back with thunder cracking the sky all around, slightly wet but safe.

Quick post-work ride to get a taste of a recent fit adjustment on one of the bikes - went from 110 to 120 stem length. First impressions are good! Very good!

Took my Peugeot out to our lake place after work on Thursday. Canadian wildfires just north of us had everything cast in a slightly hazy, orangey glow around here this week, which you may have noticed a bit in [MENTION=114373]northbend[/MENTION]'s photos above.

Walking Horse overpass on the way to Heart o' the Hills:


Little River Rd, just before it becomes a serious downhill gravel grind:



In the middle of the Elwha River Bridge (on Hwy 101):



Shadow Mountain Gas & Grocery where I was hoping to get a Coke, a candy bar, (anything!) before the last few miles to the lake - I was bonking. 28 miles and 2700+ ft of climbing, and I forgot to to eat something before I headed out. Their sign says they close at 8pm, I was there at 7:05. It was a ghost town.



At our lake place, very orangey pre-sunset. Quite otherworldy.

Now that is how it's done!

A photographic tour de force through some truly epic scenery. I'm afraid I'm a bit envious... you live year-round in a beautiful place that people from my hometown can only visit on vacation.
Bravo!

Only if the operator knows what he's doing.

Or does it have an "auto-compose" mode?

A ride today that included a bunch of short steep western Wisconsin hills, followed by crossing the new bridge over the St Croix river. Lots of people checking out the bridge. It offers really nice views of Stillwater, including the old bridge that will be turned into a pedestrian/cycle bridge at some point. The old bridge is closed for now, getting a few repairs after its 86 years of service to motorists (the cyclists will be easier on it, I think).

[MENTION=114373]northbend[/MENTION], fantastic photos, and looks to have been an awesome ride. Glad the sidewall held up.

[MENTION=299098]Vonruden[/MENTION], must have been a strong spork! In a pinch, I've used the end of a quick release as a tire lever. The thin, smooth Mavic 501 levers are ideal for this (not so much the older, knobby Campagnolo levers). Love seeing your Ebisu.

[MENTION=280039]Lascauxcaveman[/MENTION], beautiful shots, too!

Thanks Gaucho! I heard the skewer trick from another forum member today as well, never thought of it. Luckily I had one tire lever and a loose tire. I really need to swap for a pair of schwalbe Marathons or something harder for my rain bike, seems like I get a flat every time I ride in wet conditions. Just love changing tires in the rain on the side of the road.

Went with one of my best friends from high school for a ride on our new (used) bicycles. She's going to UC Davis next year and really wanted a bike, so I got her an old 3-speed and took her for a ride around most all of Weaverville! It was very fun, and I felt like these are the type of rides to live for (especially when trying to inspire another biker!).

After lunch, I rode down to the James River here in Richmond, Virginia, and can't believe how low the water is! Good Lord, do we need rain!!

14.85 miles in 59:20 and had a nice relaxing ride....

The map layout from MapMyRide:



My C&V '85 Fuji along the James River at the Z-dam. Look close (if you can) in the background of the photo, and you'll see people on inner tubes and rafts, floating on the river!



I stopped along the Huguenot Bridge on the way back, looking downstream along the river. I was trying to snap a photo of two people in kayaks, and as luck would have it, they are right behind the upper guard rail of the bridge. Oh well...



Lastly, I held on tight to my smartphone, and leaned over the bridge to take a photo of how low the water is! Normally the river is 3 - 4 feet deep by the bridge, not 8 - 10" deep!!!

I took the Grandis out for about 47 miles of exploring today. Went straight at a stoplight where I would normally turn, found a nice bridge, a nice hill, and an interesting historical artifact.





Stopped in Concord Center on the return, then just had to take a pic of this foot/bicycle bridge over the commuter train tracks in Belmont.

Rode with Bob Freeman and his friend Bruce up to the Paradise Vistor's Center. About 5,000 feet of climbing with lots of beautiful views even though there was a lot of smoke in the air.

I've been catching up on neglected chores around the house. I have been getting out in the evenings though for short and easy spins on the Snoqualmie Valley Trail. The smoke from the B.C. fires is really impacting the air quality around here but it sure does make for some pretty evenings

^^^ What a beautiful image!
[MENTION=114373]northbend[/MENTION], what do you use as a stand?

Here are a few shots taken on my commute yesterday...

The ground-fog looked quite dramatic, but the lighting was difficult.



Normally I enjoy such a challenge, but I was on my way to work, so time was an issue.


This Fuji Royale Sturmey-Archer conversion is a delightful cruiser.

This was all I had time for. I'll get some detailed shots with better lighting in the future.
