Taking Advantage of an Indian Summer Day

This past Sunday afternoon, my wife and I took a break from working on our house.

We rolled out the bikes...
and went for a ride.

The pictures speak more eloquently of the loveliness of the day than my feeble pen...

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!!!

The Thing I Miss Most About Driving to Work

Were you to ask me why I commute to work, I could wax philosophically about the physical, mental, environmental, social and political benefits.

Were you to ask what I miss most about driving to work, my answer would consist of a single word - coffee.  I miss being able to sip on a cup of coffee on my way to work.

All that changed recently as my latest, online purchase arrived.  I am now the proud new owner of a Biologic Vacuum Flask

Now I can fill this mug with coffee...
slip it into my waterbottle cage...
and enjoy a hot cup of java as I merrily pedal along.

My commuting life is now whole!!

Objects of the Night

Lately I've been doing quite a bit of riding the dark.  I've already happened upon two good reasons for a high quality bike light...

An 8" diameter log...
An 8' long branch...

The Same - Yet Different

The below two pictures were taken... the same time
...from the same place
...of the same thing
...using the same camera

The only difference was they were taken 24 hours apart.  The lesson here - no matter how low the visibility is for you today - keep pedaling - there is a brighter tomorrow.
