Old Mine Rd. in Worthington State Forest in western New Jersey. Believe it or not, I managed to thread my bike and body through the tangle of limbs and branches.

A lovely road on the way to the Snake River in WA state. The smooth pavement made both the decline and the climb from the bottom an awesome ride.

If that road has a name, I'd sure like to know. Enticing picture! Thanks for posting.

That's Almota Rd south of Colfax on the way to Boyer Park on the Snake River. Here's a link to the ride from Colfax (approximately 41 miles out and back)

The Palouse has some great riding in beautiful country. A bunch of us will be getting together on July 13th for a 59 mile mixed pavement/gravel ride (most will be on our vintage rides. The Trail of the Coeur d'Alenes will follow on Sunday for a mellow ride along Lake Coeur d'Alene and the Coeur d'Alene River.

A recent Dale Grimshaw art work in London, his works are always amazing, I've photographed 4 or 5 of his across London, but this is his biggest. Its one of over 1000 street art images I've photographed over the last year.

A friend and I did 68 miles fixed gear today.

This building in Rockmart, Georgia was restored by someone who recognized its unique beauty and didn't want it to go to waste. He bought the building, restored it and really isn't sure what he wants to do with it. Right now he lets people do weddings and other social events but said he is open to ideas. He did the whole thing with his own money just because he didn't want to see such a beautiful structure disappear.
