Along the road

With winter now here, I present my hand protection from the wind.

A pair of Pearl Izumi and a pair of jersey garden gloves.

My other car is a Bianchi.

My Bianchi Cortina. Jan has one also.

While going to and from work, I try to take in the sights offered by the changing scenery.

Safety requires that I always try to watch the road 20 or 30 yards down the way.  Of course, it is easier during the day.

Catalpa early in the a.m.

Lately, the Moon and Venus have been seen together in the southeast horizon before dawn.  If I were out in the country the Milky Way would be fabulous.

Flags at Jordan Valley Park

Contrails in a cold afternoon sky

I got caught behind a bus at a red light by Central High School.  The fumes came near doing me in and reminded me that students could possibly do something other that take the bus.

Between busses

Markings on the street

It looks like Springfield will soon be tearing up the bike lanes on Trafficway east of National.

Our son asked me if I was going to keep riding next week in the cold.  I just looked at him.  He laughed, knowing the answer.

Stay happy,


About rlhoover

A perspective on life and cycling in the Ozarks. I started serious cycling in 2008, after seeing my wife be on the bike for a few years. We have biked many places and hope to continue. I am no where near being a real good cyclist, but I have fun trying to improve. Who am I kidding? Me? Improve??
