PIX of New Rear ride

It sure was windy today, but otherwise a great day for a ride! Organizers couldn't have ordered better weather.

Here are some pix taken by hubby and I. Forgot the memory card so there aren't as many as we would have liked, but if everyone adds theirs... so, enjoy!

Ok, so I give up on trying to upload the pix. Here's the link to where they are posted:

Nice pics. Thanks for posting them.
What is all the stuff on your helmet?
Tail Light, Mirror, and What?

Yup, it's a helmet cam. It makes little 15-30 minute movies. It isn't great but it was definately CHEAP! $25 on Amazon...

Oh, I see! It's a light. We took one of those lights the climbers use and removed the headband to fasten it to my helmet with velcro. Hubby was tired of hearing me complain that I couldn't see my watch or my bike computer going to and from work in the dark. So... he put this "miners" light on my helmet.

Just call me Fred-erita!!!

You most likely would go faster with no helmet.

It was a beauty of a day here in N. Texas, glad you could enjoy it. Sadly, I had to work so all of my riding into and from work occurred in the dark. But the ride home was warm and traffic was low. Nice way to start the new year!!

Out around Blue Ridge is a great area to ride. I should have gone out but decided to wait out the morning clod and ride later in the day.

Looks like a nice ride. Thanks for the pics!
