Spring Riding

Not too bad with the Sierra Nevada mountains in the background. And the sign below says, 'Don't mortgage your life!' Good advice for everyone and anyone.

Ride to Beas de Granada

Rode to Beas de Granada and then down the other side to the Valley and back to Granada. A good time was had by all! Well - since there was only me I guess that was pretty easy. Nice sun, nice scenery - good roads!

New(er) Bike

Ah, my new Cannondale Super Six. After a couple months of riding this I am can say I'm quite happy. Certainly does the job, and looks cool - modern, yet with some nice traditional lines. Thanks to some good friends and generous people out in Southern California!

California with Nealy 2009

In order to escape the last bit of February coldness, I hopped a plane for Southern California, to visit my friend Sean and his family, and do some riding in a warm climate. I was not disappointed. Though I was under military surveillance some of the time (the picture with the helicopter), I was able to find my way to some nice climbs along the pacific ocean (top pic).

I like Southern California. Probably one of my top choices in terms of North American living options. There's a bit of traffic, but when you're on the sailboat, looking at the coastline and snow-covered mountains, you quickly forget all about it. For exoticism, you have Mexico nearby, which is great for those needing to brush up on their Spanish. I hope to get back there soon.

Fall Retrospective

The riding out near Shelburne Falls, MA, is quite nice. No suburbia really, just nice quiet country roads and some good, short climbs. This bridge is over the Deerfield River, with two good climbs on either side. I used to ride here all the time when I was at school in the Valley. It was the very essence of freedom, and I don't mean freedom like a shopping cart! So here are some nice pictures to enjoy. If you want to ride here, head up South Shelburne Road!
