Show "Bicycle"

On the camping trip, we returned to a spot we visited last year. There's a 5 mile downhill MTB trail there, that I was SMITTEN with last year. I convinced the wife I could ride it slooooowly 1-armed and not kill myself. It was tricky, especially getting over a downed tree. But I did it, and it was amazing again. Very smooth and flowy, relatively easy but if you don't ride the brakes you can be doing 25 mph easy, which I did NOT do, of course. "No getting hurt allowed."

Be careful, you don't want to hurt your only good arm! 😮 😁

That trail looks fun! I need to bring our bikes on the next Oregon trip we do as a family!

Today I decided to ride the chunky stuff on my gravel bike!

It has been hot and very humid all week, so I've limited myself to short jaunts around the neighborhood during light rain showers when the temp is bearable. I was planning a longer outing tomorrow, but the forecast calls for (drum roll) hot, humid, and T-storms. :(

Temps are hitting the 90's here, so I've been riding in the early evening. It's okay, golden hour is best for photo ops! :D

Other than a few brief forays in light rain and sessions on the indoor bike, I didn't do much riding over the past 7 days. When it wasn't raining, it's been hot and incredibly humid. Not a good combination for outdoor activities, at least for this old goat.
