Last weekend was a great ride to the Scottish games with Liam and Cody on their own bikes and Roz towing Elzy. Jesse and I were on the Xtra of course.
I’d like to invite Liam’s and Jesse’s buddies (and parents) to do TdW with us this year. If you did a ride to fairhaven park with us, doing the 24mi circuit won’t be much harder, there’s really only one hill, and that’s the overpass over the train tracks. Good cause, good picnic opportunity, and lots of participants so you won’t feel like a car target. And – it’s not a race.
Lemme know if you’d like to come and we can travel as a pack.

Here’s an attempt at making a very wide desktop background: 2560×1024. There are obviously better photos I could have chosen, but this one was recent. I think I need to figure out how to turn my bicycle into a tripod. I could certainly lose the shake, even on a 28mm lens.
Feel free to tease me about this photo. You can even do that on twitter now: @jed_reynolds or @bitratchet.
I was biking up Aldrich on my way to work when I viewed this. I expect more good things from this commute path.
I did a b+w version of this but adding a little bit of color back in made it just the thing. If you’d like to see a b+w version, lemme know.
