{this moment}

A Friday ritual. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember. - Amanda Soule

  1. It looks like they left their book out in the middle of nowhere.

  2. Kathy - I assume you meant "bike" not "book." ;) And, it is kind of out in the middle of nowhere. It's my bike and I went for a long ride last weekend. About 33 miles round trip!

  4. I am amazed at how flat it is! Is it all dirt or is there pavement? Is there a road for cars nearby? Do you see other people?

  5. It's finally become cool enough to ride again in my neck of the woods. Our bikes look very similar if I'm correct in thinking yours is white? My Canondale has the same shape and handlebars, and it's much lighter than my Specialized Hard Rock. Love these trails, love these days, happy riding!

  6. Staci - I did it again on Labor Day with a girlfriend and we went 41 miles. This weekend, we hope to make it 50!

    Nan - Yep, it's pretty flat, although we can feel the incline here and there as we ride. No major hills (or mountains!), though. The bike trail starts out with pavement and then once we get out of the city it changes to crushed limestone. It's built on an old railroad track. There are roads nearby, but not too close which is nice. No exhaust to smell and it feels like you're out in the middle of nowhere. When I rode a couple of weeks ago (when this photo was taken), I only saw a couple of people. When I went out with my friend on Labor Day, we saw quite a few cyclists. Maybe a couple of dozen. Lots more in town, though.

    Bellezza - Isn't it great that it's cooled off enough to really get out and go for long rides?! I've been on my bike so much this month. I'm trying to ride 10-15 after work every day. Sunday, I plan to ride 50! My Marin Kentwood is actually a light silver. Sure wish we lived closer so we could ride together! Have fun. Be safe!
