This is my default ride. I have several options to lengthen the ride if my legs and the weather cooperate. I won’t be listing every ride on the site, but will post special rides in the future.

The lure of the open path

This is where I belong. the open road, the open bike path, the open whatever. Wanderlust keeps calling and it’s getting harder to say no.

Animals From My Travels

One of my favorite things about bike trails are the animals I see along the way. Here are some from my last few trips.

Bike Ride: Wander to Buena Vista

While visiting the KOA I decided to take Mr. Ed on an adventure. While looking at the map for potential routes I spotted a destination that I could not resist; The Buena Vista Landfill. A garbage dump with an alleged beautiful view? I had to go.

Well the name wasn’t all that appropriate but I did see some sights and was just a few seconds too slow to get a picture of an eagle.

When it looks like a car? As human powered vehicles evolve there will have to be many redefinitions of existing laws.
