After a couple of rainy days, got out with spouse Friday for a 14 mile ride from home. This is on Lake Road, near White River. A lot of gravel pit 'lakes' in the area.

Just random shots, all kinda close to home.



Found a new wall in the neighborhood. I like.

The River widened itself in the Winter flooding. Should have taken better pics.

A Friday PM commute hour, 2 lane near Issaquah, WA.

Just a lone rider (besides me) on the PDX waterfront at 7 in the morning on a weekday. Just bizarre. Oh, and just so it is clear, cycling is permitted during our lockdown, as long as the 6-foot rule is observed.

On a favorite route north of Grand Junction, Colorado, a local bicycle enthusiast created an oasis on his ranch some 22 years ago with a bench, a freeze-resistant water fountain, shade trees and a geocache. He keeps it maintained, and it's always welcome. The water is really good, too. Neat guy!
