Westfork Ranch, Dallas, Georgia.

Horses are usually nervous around bikes but even with loud i9 hubs these guys swaggered up to the fence as soon as they saw me coming. I guess when you are that big you don't have much to fear.



This was a photo fail...

^ Nice! What is in that sandwich?

We did a century out to the wildflowers yesterday ... it was awesome! Glad we took the bikes too ... the crowds were crazy.



Taking a rest at an antique shop.


The colors were everywhere

Did a ride on the C and O Canal into DC to check out the Cherry Blossoms. Great way to avoid the traffic jams.

Wife and I were on our normal Withlacoochee ride and saw this in Inverness. They later passed us as we headed north back to Gulf Junction. Got to be a couple of BF members in the group!

I think the one in red (3rd from right) was on one of the trails I was riding out of Inverness 2 weeks ago.

I did a little North Georgia mixed-surface group ride yesterday - 110 miles with 11,000 ft climbing.

This was one of the more bucolic moments

Taking a breather on some tame doubletrack toward the end of the ride after three miles of mud, creek crossings and fresh gravel on 15% grades.

It took me just over nine hours.

Third place took 7+ hours.
