Been seeing more and more of these along all the MUPs. I think of them as the Motorcycle Gang from Kiddie Garden. Probably HS age.

No ringing at all. Just the sound of water splashing. That would be really cool if they made them ring.

That amount of water probably damps out the ring. It reminds me of last winter when on a rainy morning I rang my bell when approaching an oncoming group of kids. The bell just went “clunk”. My apology was “my bell drowned”. We all got a laugh out of that. No problem this year, bell ringing loud and clear.

No more COVID-related closures, and I’m now feeling good enough, so I’m going for it. Doing a couple of days a week first, then I’ll bump it up more.

Been off the bikes for any decently long rides
because of sogginess
in Seattle's eastside foothills
associated with Ahead of Schedule for Wettest January on Record.

but thread title says whenever... and your pictures inspire me to remember.... what i want to do again in a better 2021. Or maybe I will camp.


and sometimes I just like to ride with a friend...... and follow the peanut gallery.

Great weekend day riding in the San Gabriel Mountains. It isn't often you can ride at near 8000 feet without snow and with only a windbreaker ... so we took advantage.
