Part of the same train. He's blocking the road. Had to backtrack a mile to get around.


Finally! Tempe Town Lake.

2 months ago when the temps hit 50, everyone stayed in. Now it hits 50 and it's like summer with the bikers, walkers and runners everywhere. Minnesota, got to love it.

We woke up to 4" of fresh snow and we're still a month away from what would officially be the first day of winter.

Over on another BF, thread about Best Ever Picture - only one shot allowed. I think it ought to be about the bike, so I'll use this as a visual demo post to help me decide. Gotta be vintage.

I don't name my bikes, but a good pic deserves a title.

Is it possible we are not alone in the Universe

Some gravel bikes, too. I'm on the left.

We got pretty high! This is the view from the place the above pic was taken. All up from there.
