This blog recounts rides, pictures of bikes that I notice (and have time to snap a picture of), and occasionally comments about cycling. It is focuses on the Northeast US but I have also ridden in Washington state, Colorado, New Mexico, Wisconsin, Virginia, California, and four of Canada's Maritime provinces.
I was out of the house at 5AM on Saturday. Sunrise was at 5:40 and I was well equipped with a good headlight, a flashing red light on my seat bag, and a reflector vest. The bike trail was littered with bunnies at that hour. I made it to the Maple Street bridge (in Carlisle) by 6AM and was back home after 33 miles by 7:15AM.
The Arlington Great Meadows at 5:30:
