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.
Fall is coming faster, especially out of town. In town the leaves are still mostly green but out of town it is past peak. I took a long ride out of town this morning to check out the leaves.
It was an early morning ride - I was out of the house by 5:30 - and I looked for the Leonid meteor shower. I stopped in dark spots a few times and looked towards Leo but didn't see anything.
The ride was cold but not too cold. I was well dressed for the coldest parts of the day but was never too warm - I never broke a sweat.
I was amused when crossing Rte 2 at 126. There was a large group of riders waiting for their light, most of them patiently. Suddenly have of them took off, blowing off the red light. One of the patient riders yelled out, "DUDE!", clearly exasperated at his fellow riders' respect for the law. The light changed in a couple of seconds and they all made it across, as far as I could see.
