Pictures of where you ride...

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Pictures of where you ride...

In the 8 months I've been on this forum, I have never seen a thread specifically for ride pics. Sticky?

Jackson Cr rd, outside of Bozeman.




Begin 12.5% grade:





9 mph.


Continue Grade



Still 9 mph.


Down.


You can see my tan line in the reflection of my glasses...is that bad?

Thanks for sharing your pictures! I've driven through Bozeman a couple of times but I don't remember too much. Montana is so big that you get kinda numb by the time you go from West to East.

I see you have just as much shoulder as I do. Oh well. I saw maybe 4 cars on the 10 mile stretch that I was taking pics of.

Montana is a big state for sure. If hills were made off breasts, Montana would be the films Porky's and the Revenge of the Nerds series all wrapped up into one huge funbag festival.

Im thinking about going long today and taking the camera...Will update later

Flat as a pancake Indiana.....
These pictures were taken last Winter. Looks the same now except for the corn is tall.




One of the many dogs out in the country trying to take a bite out of me.


Anyone need an Army Truck?


I live about 15 miles from Fairmount Indiana. James Dean grew up and was buried here.

Lovely pictures, Cypress! As with any other climb photos, though, the pictures don't do justice to the difficulty of the grade.

Tell me you weren't doing 9 mph up that 12.5% grade. And taking pictures at the same time. That would make me feel very puny indeed.

9 mph on 12.5% grade = 5940 ft/hr. Pretty close to Lance/Marco/Floyd speed.

To save my fragile ego, I'm going to assume it was less than 12.5% when you took that shot.

Cypress, how the heck did you capture the deer pic while riding? Is your camera mounted to the pick, your helmet, or your person? Great pics. Later.

I rode up that climb with one hand. My lower back felt it afterwards. I rode almost 10 miles with the camera around my neck, and just happened to have it ready when the deer spooked. It ran along side of me for a little bit helping me get the shot ready.

Great PICS ... love the countryside and the sky was beautiful that day! I've only been out West to Wyoming and Montana once back in the early 90's and loved every moment riding in the Tetons, Yellowstone, Beartooth pass (only part of it), and parts of the Black Hills.

wish i had some pics of the boulder creek loop that takes me up and over the santa cruz mtns down to the coast! some breathtaking shots uptop- this ride is usually a hammerfest so i try to keep the load as light as possible.

Record low is -47. When the snow flies, it sucks to live here unless you are a ski-bum. The winters are sunny though.

South Carolina Low Country:

Hilton Head Island to Beaufort, SC... Not my 'local' ride, but Mummsy lives there and I get to do nice rides on holidays....

Broad Creek on HHI taken from the Cross Island Expressway...


Calibogue Sound [Intracoastal Waterway] from the bridge leaving HHI...


The marshland on the road to Beaufort. Typical Lowcountry stuff...


Just past the town of Port Royal you go by the place where Marines are made. Oooh Rah!


Bridge No. 4? This one takes you to Lady's Island (as seen in the film 'The Big Chill')...


Another long bridge on the way home...

Cypress, I have two dear friends moving to Bozeman at the end of this month. They are a couple who are very experienced, strong riders, both road and moutain. Do you know of any groups/clubs that they can join. They are very nice people with excellent senses of humor - they would fit in anywhere! Thanks.
