Nice ride report thread you have here! I don't hang out in this section much, and I just found this, and read the whole thing. Great reports, and you seem to photograph the interesting stuff, stuff that captures the essence of the ride that gives your reports flavor. I also like that you post up the routes you take so maybe someday we can find these places you visit.
