Those are gorgeous pictures!

ha ha. Images not working for me. Will try the link option. Morning commute, 80 metres from work and I puncture. Timing is everything.

Damn, Mr. Y. Gooey, you take some damn fine bike ride photos.


#5264

Thanks! Though I really just think the PNW is super photogenic.


#5265

I took a lot of really bad photos in the PNW, and your best are definitely way better than my best

First snow commute of the year. Merino wool baselayers and fake gore-tex bombshelter did well.

I don’t want to, but I know eventually I’ll have to ditch the fenders.

The ridge was pretty today.

Roads were pretty solid.

Felt like crap, but kept climbing for the fun descent. Also had to appreciate the new signs.

Shite, pretty bike!

Autumn around here is pretty nice, give it a week and then most of the ground will be frozen solid and we’ll have hella grip every where.

What’s your fake gore-tex bombshelter of choice?

What should have been a nice climb, but was sabotaged by Avid brakes. Ride over already.
Downstairs putting on some Shimano SLX brakes now. Avids going in the bin where they belong.

First truly fall-feeling ride this fall. four and change hours east-south-east of Richmond VA, looping out past the airport and coming back through battlefield. actually a bit chilly and damp at the start.
-bought a 6 pack of super cheap stretch poly buff/neck gaiters recently, they are pretty great for transitional weather. Also they come in fun colors, so hello added accessorizing!
-got my first real puncture since setting up my wheels with tubeless tires. Didn’t even notice the initial puncture, just saw a bit of tire milk on my shoes. An hour later, cornering hard, I must have knocked loose the scab, because the puncture blew air (and sealant) for about three revolutions, and then sealed itself. In the back of my mind, I’d sort of been assuming that road tubeless wouldn’t be able to seal quickly enough to stop this kind of puncture from flatting - something about high pressure, low volume, and the spread of sealant through a lot of circumference seemed like it would handle a real hole poorly, but I was wrong. Tire only dropped about 20psi through all of this, which is pretty impressive.

those gloves are incredible.

Went on a short overnight camping trip across the river to a state park in Indiana. Went exploring this abandoned amusement park from the early 20th Century that is located in the state park. Very cool and the fall scenery was beautiful. I have more pictures but for some reason they didn’t upload into my google photos so right now all you get is this slightly blurry and slightly mushy picture of my SO and I.

I organised a Grinduro on sunday. Started early on this stage to catch some video of the good riders passing me, actaully, all the riders except a couple in truth!
It was a blast. https://instagram.fsea1-1.fna.fbcdn.net/t50.2886-16/23583698_2104427306251132_3906494062491860992_n.mp4
