Sub-24 hour overnight - I rode from home and camped along Racoon Creek, Paulding County, North Georgia.

Racoon Creek is stocked with trout and the local trout fishing organization had made significant improvement to a trail along the creek. I've wanted to check it out and it was a really nice way to spend a weeknight.

The one's in your photo look like they are built for speed. Yep, always gotta stop.

These were some big'uns, and they weren't shy either. Most horses are nervous around bicycles but even with the loud i9 hubs these guys walked right up to the fence as soon as they saw me coming. They definitely weren't afraid and seemed to like apple pie flavored Lara bars.

This was a photo fail...

Honestly though, if I'm ever in your neck of the woods with my bike I may just have to have you show me around

Love the weather this time of year in Chicago. Warm enough to ride comfortably but too chilly still for big crowds clogging the lakefront. Just me, a few dog walkers and some people fishing. Perfect way to unwind at the end of a busy friday!

Not exactly Arenberg, but I did ride my bike on some cobbles for Roubaix weekend.

^^ thats a cool photo.


Today a couple dozen like minded cyclists and I did a North Georgia mixed surface ride.

Mud pits, fresh one inch aggregate on 15% grades, concrete barriers, stream crossings, abandoned forest service roads, a sustained mountain climb at mile 69 - 110 miles total and 11,000 ft climbing. This was the most climbing I've done in one day by a good margin.

Georgia wine country


The descent off Burnt Mountain. I hit 51+ MPH.


Didn't help at all.


One of the more bucolic moments...


Stretching the legs late in the ride on a relatively tame section of doubletrack on the perimeter of the Rich Mountain Wilderness.

I haven't been around in a while - but I take pics on almost all my commutes and/or weekend rides.
Here's a bunch of shots from morning/afternoon commuting from the last few weeks

You sir have a beautiful commute! You also obviously have an eye for photo composition. Nice!

This cat lives by the horse stables along one of my routes and comes over to hang out for a bit when I roll up.
