    Smile Post your one day ride photo.....

    I thought it would be great if we could see your one day ride photo.
    The rule, well not rule but suggestion is to post just one photo of a ride you took TODAY, not a photo of a ride you took last week or two months ago.

    I'll get it started:

    I live in Bozeman, Montana and today we had a little thaw, so it looked good to head out for a ride. I headed up highway 86 and made the hot coco turn at Bridger Ski Bowl after watching the crowd slip slide down the hill. My photo was taken this morning just before leaving with the Bridger Mountain range in the background and the temperature at a sunny, balmy 22 degrees F. The forecast is for more snow tomorrow...yikes!

    Cheers!

    Great Kiddo, Bowzer pic.....
    The bike is so clean because it has been hanging out in the garage most of the winter.
    I've had "Remy" since it's birth in 2,000 and he now has 92K on the meter.

    moved thread here since it seems more photo oriented.

    And again Welcome BigskyRider! Indeed a very clean bike, I don't think either of mine have been that clean EVER! Ha Ha!

    RocketMan and the LT do some dirt!!

    After spending 6 hours listening to the drone of a bunch of suits during the New Employee Orientation for my new job I really needed to clear my head and when I stepped outside it was 71 Degrees! Oh Yeah! Time for a ride! Since the HQ was near 66 that heads straight west toward Blue Ridge the choice of destinations was obvious.
    A quick buzz down 66 got me to one of my favorite roads, namely Old Route 55. After wondering around for a bit I came across a road I hadnt explored so I hung a quick left of 55 and after around a 100 feet of pavement I found myself looking a steep uphill grave road that disappeared around a sharp righthander. After debating for moment if I wanted to tackle a twisty gavel road on the Autobasu (Highway Pig) I figured what the f the GPS SAID it went thru so at least I wouldnt have to worry about wrestling the beast in one-lane gravel turn-a-round (or so I hoped!) I headed up the road. Good choice as it turned out.

    Most of these were tough to shoot since I was shooting into a setting sun under a clear sky....

    The Road



    A nice rock wall around an old cemetery..



    At the far end of the road was a nice old house circa 1860



    I wound up near another favorite road that goes thru another small town called Aldie where there is a nice little lake with a ÔÇ£Swan CrossingÔÇØ sign across the road..



    An old tree stub by the lake



    And with the recent and decent amount of rain of late the old stone damn finally has water flowing over it.



    And finally for all yous that are still stranded in snow..

    This Buds for you..



    Spring is finally coming to DC Yeah!!!!!

    Today's ride

    A ride out to the desert, testing out a route for an upcoming club ride. Tons of people were out enjoying the fresh crop of desert wildflowers. Took the long way home. 240 miles. Hot in the desert (85) dropping to 60*F at the top of the mountain (more or less Julien) and back to 72 just before hitting home.

    And the wild flowers were worth it.

    Been a while (last summer) but that looks like the parking lot at Red Rocks IIRC.

    You are so lucky to live there.
    I used to post here, but now I don't.

    There is another break in the weather here, so it was time to get Rita out for a little exercise. It hasn't snowed for almost a week, so the side roads (they are never plowed) had cleared enough to get to the main roads and the roads outside town have only a few icy and/or slushy spots. It was in the low 40s, beautifully sunny, and the wind was still below 20 mph. I set off for lunch at a little western town 60 miles away.

    About halfway there the wind started to come up, which made me think that perhaps 41 degrees is a little chilly - so I turned around. I had hoped to post something more picturesque than a snow fence, but here's where I went today:

    Magilla and Linda are visiting the Big Bend for the first time. Today we explored the road to Fort Davis and the McDonald Observatory . . .
