Nice fall riding went to Pike National Forest and some riding on the back roads and trails on the Schwinn Mesa GSX. It is really starting to seem like Fall most of the leaves are off the aspens and there was a bit of ice on the beaver ponds.



They finally got the wood bridge across the beaver ponds done so you actually get to the bike trails.

Thanks Jeff! It was such a beautiful morning; reminded me not to take for granted the wonderful area that I live in, with so many great rides within easy reach. I always worry that the camera cannot accurately capture all the glory, but it ain't half bad!

That pic is worthy of framing and hanging for display!

Also many others on this thread should be displayed but this one is really appealing to me.

Nicely done.

Riding to work this morning on my Basso I unfortunately caught the topside of a sagging fence with arm. Blinded by the early sun I was able to move my head out of the way and instead let my arm take the hit.

I'm alright just a torn jersey and sore arm.

Yesterday was a perfect fall day. I wandered around Seattle and ended up at Yesler swamp by UW. Noisy at the stadium but peaceful a mile away.

A cool, breezy day here in Maryland, so I choose the C&O Canal. Back to layers - tights, full gloves, vest, long sleeves and a light jacket.
Leaves starting to fall and hiding tree roots, so full attention is required. Spooky abandoned house behind me, I had never noticed it before.

I enjoyed a day of wrenching and then riding with a friend in wonderful 60's temps here in north Texas.

The Bears were playing Green Bay today, so I rode 72 miles north.


Checked out a trail that starts 35 miles from my house. Pretty much the edge of civilization. Was hoping it would be paved, but mostly crushed limestone. Had to rely on my old motocross skills - 700x23 tires...



Came across a nice stand of pines. Probably the remnants of a tree farm.



There were some great views of rolling prairie. Looks like fall "color" might be brown this year.



Seasons are changing! It was a crisp 45 degrees when I left. Warmed up to about 60. There was a delicious slice of high pressure keeping things sunny and clear. Bike needs a bath.

Well it happens every year, but always manages to surprise. Went from late summer to fall in a span of 24 hours. Yesterday set out (on bikes) to watch UVA football with my kiddo. Warm and sunny, we even put on sunscreen. Started raining about kickoff and chilly by time we got back home, well before the game ended. Went from low 80s to low/mid 60s with blustery winds today. I dressed appropriately and had a real nice ride with lots of climbing. Were still a couple of weeks away from good fall colors though Id guess.



Top of the last hard climb of the day. Blue Ridge stretching away for miles to the north.

Very nice fall weather for the Rockies today about 60 and clear. Took a nice easy ride up to Alma and back on some of the back roads and bike trail. Took the Mesa GSX which is great for easy riding.


Some is really snow on the ground in places so it really fall.


Some Ice still on the water from the cold nights lately.


It makes me sad to see this fairly nice mid 80's Scott MTB just sitting out a couple feet from the side walk in Alma. Despite the look it is actually nearly complete original except for seat and post and would actually be fairly easy to restore.

Todays fine autumn weather graced a 42-mile loop, mostly through Queens and many of the areas where I grew up and then lived later, after college.



Sunnyside Rail Yards


Bocce court in Forest Park


Fort Totten

As I approached Fort Totten, a rush of memories came to me. In 1980 a friend and I formed a club with a group of B- riders. We met here at Fort Totten along with the Kissena Cycle Club, which we were loosely associated with. One of our members was Old Bill, so named to distinguish him from our other, younger Bill. He was in his later 50s. I was only 24 or 25 but even then I thought: wow, if I can keep riding until Im old like him, that will be cool. I realized today that Im living the dream!


Throngs Neck Bridge between Queens and The Bronx


It wouldnt be complete with a visit to my childhood friend.

I was 7 or 8 when the Worlds Fair happened. we lived nearby I have memories of the area from before the structures were built, along with the construction of Shea Stadium.

@northbend may have one.



Only downside for me is that the ride never ends at Doofers and the ride&climb home is for the sober.


Eddy said, “Don’t buy upgrades, Ride up grades.” So I geared it with 48/34 chainrings to get me up the last 2.5km of every ride. Does the top to bottom shot show the grade on this 1st bit of the hill???
