This past weekend two of my fellow club members and I did a two night three day tour in southwest Ohio. This ride is one of my yearly adventures as I prepare for a cross country in 2017. This ws the first time I have invited others to join me. It was a great experience and learning curve. Below are several pictures that helps explain my travels.
On what is suppose to be the night where the moon will be closests to earth, we planned our first club night ride in several years. I had forgot how much fun is was. Riding at night down a dark country road it changes your perspective on touring. The air temps were cool, no wind to speak of silence of only hearing the whirl of your bike. Of course a few bats flew over and many insects when riding along a farmers field. We are hoping that this ride will the first of many more to come. I do need to buy me a better light thou.
FYI.. I enhanced the moon in the picture a little, but I think you get the message?

Our local bicycle club has an annual 50 mile ride route going out to a unique resturamt located in the country. This past Saturday we did this event for 2013. The weather looked a little discouraging to begin with, but it held up through most of the afternoon. Attached are several pictures that depict our weekend adventure.
My son Chad and I went to the Cyclo-Cross World Championship in Louisville, Ky on February 2nd. We had a chance to have a picture taken with the Women’s European Cyclo-Cross 2012 champion Helen Wyman. Helen is from Great Britain and cycles for the KONA/FSA Factory Team. She was very gracious to take the time for a snapshot.
