That's how I "Cruise"

Tuesday had 2 rides. I took a bike a good friend of mine had recently given me, the bikes name is Smoke and so it shall remain that name. Did a few quick repair items on it and to the trails I went. The first ride was just a work lunch ride. I did the path in Castle Rock. Came across a sweet looking bull snake, but the guy slithered away when I took the camera out.

The after work ride was one of those rides that just... Well it was awesome, the path wasn't epic in any way but the evening was just great. The trail was in great shape, the bike was working great, the weather was perfect and the wildlife was out. I am glad I went where I did. Made for a great way to put and end to the day before heading home

You lucky dude. People are suppose to die before they get into paradise. Looks like you got an early pass. Those 220D cars never quit, huh? Looks like a 68 or 69 vintage.

Thanks! I love that car. I do 300 - 600 miles a week with it! While it is the same body as the 68/69 it is a '71 model.

Great pictures! And I'm sure you had tire levers, patch kit, pump/CO2 in your jersey.

Great pics, thanks! You see a lone bull I see a herd of around 75 cows and calves on a ride a few weeks ago. I'd rather see the bull!
