Setting Sun viewed from a bike.

View from a bike, setting sun. I have Eagle Point park all to myself again, as usual this time of year. Beautiful up here riding on Bluffs above the Mississippi River. 164 acres all to myself. I don't have to head home have a good lighting system on my bike. I still have the studs on my Treck XO2 CX bike, would like to put on some rubber tires and not make so much noise like the studs make on pavement but I do run into an occasional ice patch. There isn't going to be any significant thawing occurring in the 10 day forecast. That's OK as long as I can get outdoors and ride. Which I will. Really hope to do some serious bicycle riding out on the snowmobile trails this weekend.
Everybody at work is getting in "the biggest loser" contest, to see who can loose the most weight by Labor Day Weekend. 20 dollars apiece. I am in it, not to try to win, but would work out perfect for me, to lose some pounds. There is the Colesburg gravel race Labor Day weekend I would like to enter, and like any biker knows any weight loss really helps you power up hills. Besides this old carcass could stand to lose a few.
Thanks for stopping in, peace and happy and safe rides to you.

Your ride sounded so nice...peaceful too.

Yup, I hear you on the weight thingie....that's why I seriously started weight training. Gotta lose some body fat to ride faster.

Nice shots.

Get your work pals on bikes and they'll drop weight faster then the gym routine - plus have more fun.
