On the out leg I battled some personal function issues and on the return we battled some heavy downpours, so you can't call it a blessed ride, I guess. It was one heck of a great way to spend the first half of a Sunday. I've been feeling pretty good on the bike, gaining fitness and confidence. Good stuff. And thanks to Mr. Crowell for the company.
Blueridge along a closed bridge. It did the job today as the rain bike.
Google auto-awesome-ing the other side of the bridge
Heavy clouds on our return along Utica Pike, just at the end of very heavy rain.
A well-earned post-ride salute, just before the street was busy with police cars visiting a cop car/drunk guy accident.
As a tag-on, I saw a few nice avians today:
Little Blue Heron **a first for me
Red-tailed Hawk- leering from an electric wire. Didn't flinch.
Lots of LBJs
LOTS of Mourning Doves
Wild Turkeys- in somebody's yard
