My wife says that keeping track of how many miles I ride does not make much sense, and therefore, it must be a male thing.
She is probably correct.
Anyway, we rode out to Danforth Cemetery this morning. The day started with clouds and what looked like rain in the distance.
Some select trees are beginning to turn color.
We had the roads pretty much to ourselves. South of Division, I saw a few things worth sharing.
We look for indigo buntings along these fields. This morning, all we saw was this hawk and a few buzzards.
The growing season is fast ending and the local farmers are cutting and baling hay.
I told Jan to keep going while I got these pictures. I would catch up with her on down the road.
About this time the sky started to break up and the clouds started dispersing.
Green fields because of recent rains after a long, dry, summer are a welcome sight.
After we got home, we decided to ride over to Bass Pro and look for Jan a warm cold-weather undershirt. We will be helping with Springbike’s Metric Century next Saturday and she wants to be prepared.
Back to mileage, the ride this morning put me past 2310 (from 2009) up to 2322, the most I have ever done.
Here’e to continuing on.
