Morgan-Monroe forest ride

Monday, February 11th, 2008

My commute was really cold this morning, about 10 degrees upon departure. My warmer pants were dirty and I should have worn my pepperskins. My legs got really cold on this ride, and once again when I brought my bicycle inside at work, condensation froze on my frame and stem.

I managed to fit in a decent road ride over the weekend, riding up to Morgan-Monroe State Forest on Saturday. It was pretty warm, in the upper 40s, but 20mph winds gusting to 30-40 mph made it tough at times. I didn’t take a lot of photos, mostly concentrating on riding instead, but I did snap a few shots along the way. I went home via Cascades park, which I often forget exists. I want to go back there sometime with a good camera. I don’t normally go home that way because then I have to cut across town, and I prefer to keep my rides rural whenever possible. But this time I realized if I went home the usual way I’d face those winds head on for the last 5 miles of my ride. My ride was about 35 miles total.

Anyway, here are a few photos.

    At least your weather is better than here – 0 with the wind chill today. How many more days until spring?

    I’m going to have to try this self-portrait. This could become a meme: photos of yourself such as shadows, reflections in mirrors or storefront windows. You’ve got me thinking here.
