Todays Ride With Pics

Went out on a solo run today had a distance of 115km in mind, almost got it, did 114.2. Did a lot of climbing by my clubs standards especially for this time of year. I am completely spent but in a good way not bonked just spent. Took along the camera which I comitted myself to doing more of this year. Anyway here's a few shot's. Nothing real nice as everything is still dull and gray. No real big long climbs like mountains but one rolling section after another, was happy with my 25km/h avg.
Here's one of my favorite little decents with nice swooping bends.

A picture of the cockpit just because I see so many pics like this

A view from the top of what locals call the ridges

Looking at the next set of ridges

Needed to get some more water

A tough little climb, these abrupt rises can hurt this early in the year

Another view shot coming out of the ridges

Looks like a great ride and I appreciate the pix! I've been thinking that I need to start memorializing my rides with digi-pix and post them as well. Thanks for sharing and inspiring me!

Nice Pix, which way did you go, I know you live in Oshawa, I figured you probably headed North, toward Port Perry. I didn't ride today because the wind was something else here in Toronto, gusting to 80km/h, was a good day to be a clyde if you had to walk anywhere, I saw some of the skinny people hanging onto bus stop poles for dear life to keep from blowing away.....

I see you have a lot of sand on the edges of the roads. That is what was sandblasting me a few weeks ago outside when the trucks when past me. Today we are in a blizzard warning, yes southwest Iowa is in a blizzard warning. Must be that damn global warming.

I recognize those roads - my current training ones as well. Not Port Perry way - but instead looks like heading along Columbus Rd to Enniskillen. Great pics.

The number one reason I bought a bike rack when living in Toronto - so I could drive out and hit some nice roads for cycling.
