Sunday ride.............

I cheated.

Instead of riding the Surly, I hit the easy button and rode my Cannondale R500. I think it weighs less then 1/2 of what the loaded Surly does.

Here's a rough map of the route we did. It was right around 50 miles, all I can say is.........I slept real good last night.

Once we got over to Lancaster, the roads we took were really nice. The weather was overcast at 45 degrees with a damp chill in the air so I was fine as long as I kept moving. I think the next long ride-I will wear my booties, my feet were a little cold by the time we got back.

I didn't get the chance to take many photographs, I don't think it would have mattered much-the light was terrible anyways with it being so overcast.

This is a purple gorilla at a mini golf place here in York on old Rt 462. Looks like he's saying "You best step off before I hurt you"

I like riding down Rt 462, it was the main drag before Rt 30 went in back in the early 70's. All kinds of old barns, houses and cottage style motels. I'll take my camera on my next solo ride, I promise.

That's about it for now.....thanks for reading.

Cloudy days make for the best light for general photography. Too much sunshine means sharp shadows and high contrast.

Thanks for the tip.

It just seemed like such a grey dreary day for pictures.

That and I was at the back of the pack most of the time,so I didn't have time to shoot much.

Great map - I will have to try that software - I make maps for a living! And also I love your photomosaic banner - beautiful spot.

I'm discovering that it can be hard to balance photographing and exercising. Right now they battle it out and one wins - but I want to do both.
