Sure.

Unless you want something different. Then, no.

We managed to get a 35 mile ride in this afternoon. A bit breezy, but not too bad. The autumn colors were terrific.

My girlfriend and I got in a nice ride today, enjoying a few alphabet hiways in Wisconsin. Here we are about halfway between Alma and Mondovi. She is on a mid-60s Bianchi, me on a Dave Anderson stainless.

I was out in CL on Sunday, but was busy helping my dad get the house and garden ready for winter. Not a bad day for a ride.
