I spend a lot of time in the 41, but I return here every so-often. It gets pretty boring over here...

19 mile fitness ride, hit a few more uphill's than normal so it wore out my "arthritic knees" a little sooner than normal!

I can only last for about 3 minutes before the stink gets to me.

Phone forgot I took this until I killed the battery today, then it woke up:


The significant lady's restaurant was able to get on the list for the G40 art conference. This piece is by a really cool brazillian guy named Lelo.

I participated in the New York City Ride of Silence this past Wednesday.

A unique ride with a somber purpose, and somber in practice.

Checked out the completed portion of the Saucon Rail Trail, from outside Center Valley to Hellertown, PA on a truly beautiful May afternoon. How thoughtful that the temporary northern terminus is only two blocks from a Rita's Water Ice!


(See - it really was a railroad once!)



We only did about 11 miles, but it's only the second time My Faire Spouse has joined me this year, so that's a good thing. (It's a mixed marriage - one Trek, one Cannondale.)

A few more from the day.

Sometimes I'd really enjoy a flat trail through a bunch of green stuff in the shade. That looks like a fine way to spend the day. Some of the trails around here can be just plain scarey.

its a shame so many of them have been set aside.

I took Pugsly the Peugeot for the cushy tires and because he was looking lonely in the garage.
This is just outside Riverton headed toward Peters Hill.


All these trails are well marked. This was the junction to take a detour to Marshall's Hut.


There was also a couple historic cemetery's I walked around, I like this stuff.


Headed toward the hut.


Hello! A quick snack.



It's a nice quiet place with a nice view.


One of the many historic farming property's along the way.


Still trying
