Oh my. My new favorite thread. I'll try not to bomb it too hard....

Let's jump right in with a "post tour pic". Taken about 2 hours after we rolled in to Cannon Beach OR from Bar Harbor Maine. You can see about 1300 more pics taken on the trip here http://keithreed.smugmug.com/Other/2...7411110_HcSG9C



Here's one taken a bit closer to home that I like. The little guy was celebrating his 8th birthday by riding 20 miles with his "friends" Awesome morning.


And a couple more just for some diversity...
This one taken from a rolling bicycle (in Oklahoma)


A little cyclocross fun. One of my better attempts at picture taking as he was rolling about 20MPH when he went by.


What the heck,,,one more since this is a motorcycle forum. Taken from the tour collection...
Somewhere in the Badlands

I don't usually take a camera on my rides unless it's a group ride or something I haven't done before or don't expect to do often. I have had a couple good ones this year, though. I'll post a select pic and link to a slideshow of the album on Photobucket rather than bog down the whole thread.

Black Canyon Trail - North of Phoenix, AZ. A friend and I did the north ~30 miles of the trail. The slowest smooth trail I have ever ridden.



South Mountain - Mormon - National - Corona Loma trails.



AZ Trail - Flagstaff Section. It was raining and cold in mid-July!



Sedona - The guys on the Flagstaff ride organize an annual ride every year to various places. Utah and Colorado have been popular, but this year was a late trip to Sedona.



AZ Trail - Picketpost Trailhead near Superior, AZ. Cat claw on the trail made it look like my cat used my legs as a scratching post.

We only covered about 10 miles today, part of the Mt. Vernon Trail, and then off to Four Mile Run.





50 and cloudy, but a nice ride for us.

Gats ride

These pics are from a short few days ride.
Location:- Gatineau Hills, Quebec, Canada.
Bike- the only one I had then.
Scope- slower paced touring; when on my motorcycle I keep on going, and going, and going...
the more I go the faster I want to go. On a bike, time slows down:






enjoying a perfect fire road:



nice trail around a lake:



talk about wrong choice- this fella was trying to dig a hole in the wrong spot... felt sorry for her, hopefully she decided to try somewhere else:





more riding:



back to civilisation:

The wife and I took a ride on the C&O Canal trail to Harper's Ferry, WV for lunch today. It was pretty warm, but the trees keep us in the shade, and there was a light breeze off the Potomac, so it was pretty pleasant.

The only issue was that it rained yesterday to the trail was pretty muddy, making for a messy ride. We brought extra shirts, but we did not bag them, so they were muddy before we got to lunch!









One art shot:



Fun, no issues, and we will be doing it again, better prepared!

Wife and I did a fun ride on an Ireland vacation a few weeks back. We rode over the Gap of Dunloe near Killarney.

First you ferry up a series of lakes with rented bikes in the canal boat:






Start of the ride


Near the top



The way down


Then a refreshing pint at Kate Kearney's cottage at the bottom.

A fun, highly recommended tour if you are in that area.

at Alpenrose Velodrome in Portland OR.

Privately owned by the Alpenrose Dairy but open to the public, definitely worth a visit to ride or watch the races if you are in Portland, the banking is 43 degrees ....FWIW was riding a Soma Rush fixed gear there which has become my main bike, got hooked on riding fixed about 10 years ago...

Went for a couple of hours yesterday and it was WINDY! I got a decent picture at the ARC, which is like a museum of sorts. One day I have to go in there and check it out, but everytime I go by it's closed or I don't feel like walking in. It looks like an ark, but it's spelled ARC, (like the part of a circle) so I don't know what they're getting at. It could just be that the Koreans misspelled "ark". Anyway, here's the bike and the ARC ark.
