Maple Valley to Newcastle via the low traffic route.

^^^^ Out the back road, past the outdoor building material storage.

Smooth pavement - soooo nice..

Equestrians for the horse trails. Gooood.

Kayak ‘grabs’ on one of the numerous Cedar River crossings

Nice picnic table along the trail

Local Fire Station

They say you have to win the jersey to wear it. Not a former Swiss National Champion, guess 10 years National Ski Patroller counts as a win.

Home again.

The horses need to move up two spots. :p

Great set of photos, but I am rather biased.

A quick 28 miles on the R600 to Randall's Island with a stop at a mural dedicated to Mother Theresa on the way back.

Best cure for doomscrolling is go hide out on the bike. 52 miles, 4600 ft climbing on a gorgeous day. Got about 10 miles of gravel, mostly new to me roads.


https://cimg2.ibsrv.net/gimg/bikefor...0186bfeb2.jpeg
Rode by this once, didn’t stop because I had a front loader behind me who had let me pass. Road didn’t go where I thought it would so turned around and came back (after a 1 mile steep descent)

Morven - old estate owned by UVA and used as a conference center and I suspect schmoozing wealthy donors. Gate was open, so I snuck in and checked it out.

Picnic spot - Green Mountain Rd

Jmpierce 11-04-20 04:05 PM

Madison County Trails with a group of old retired farts. 27 miles, 13.4 average speed with a 14 mph wind and rolling hills. The others would have been much faster if they didn't have to stop all the time waiting for me.

26 miles up north in a rare afterwork November ride. Getting dark at 4:45pm these days. 70 degrees in Chicago (woot!)

Most of the boats are gone from Wilmette harbor.

Some sailboats up on blocks.

If you squint a bit, it kinda looks like a Dahon

Ha, yeah I looked at the pic and thought “I don’t remember any black helicopters flying around”. I think he was going for the San Pellegrino.

I've often been envious of the scenery posted from other places. But someone pointed out I have a lot to be grateful for here in New York. Here is my ride on Tuesday. Roads are lightly trafficked and very scenic. Drivers are considerate.

In the background you see the Catskill Mountains in the distance in many pictures. In one or two, you see the Shawangunk Ridge which our house is on.

Today I rode out into the Dairy country of western Marin and Sonoma counties. Our 6 month dry season has usually ended by now, but no rain so far. The hills are very dry. Evidently so is this Flamingo.

This old spring box dried up a few years ago and has been repurposed.

Upgraded the RD on the covid clunker Messa GSX yesterday hard to believe I'm still under $20 out of pocket on this rescue bike. Internet has been down last day or so a bit of delay.

On the back roads trails around Fairplay there are supposed to be several stashes of gold worth several hundred thousand so I keep looking every time I ride. So far found ones small nugget and one tiny dollar coin.

I just find empty beer cans and old masks.

The number one thing I found the most of when I used to ride along I-15 between CA/NV state line to Mountain Pass was disposable dirty diapers. :(

My old British bike group instructed us all to do solo rides today in the spirit of social distancing and to seek unpaved surfaces. I was on my ‘82 Holdsworth Special with 650b x 38mm wheels:

I got up early and decided my busy day allowed me enough time to ride to Hodges and back, and 14 miles beats no miles any day! I got a pic of the Mercian in front of the long-gone People’s Bank and a view of Dixie Drive.

No pics today. I did 30 hilly miles in fantastic weather. Then rode over to pick up a good deal on a small GB handlebar bag. Stopped on the way home for some celebratory steaks and Lambrusco. Damn fine day today.

rccardr 11-07-20 08:34 PM

Amen, bro. Have had amazing weather this week, four killer days in a row.
Got 136 miles in for the week and another gorgeous day predicted for tomorrow.
