Roads and trails

Monday, August 18th, 2008

Friday night I did another mixed terrain ride. I took some familiar roads and a familiar trail and combined them for a new and fun route. View the route on bikely. I had fun entering this into Bikely, as it spends quite some time off the roads Google recognizes. I had to draw parts of the route in satellite view.

The Long Haul Trucker continues to impress me. This is the same trail I rode on a few days prior, but I rode a little faster this time and somehow the nearly-slick tires have good traction on the trail surface. The bike handles with confidence. Here are a few photos from my ride. I shot on film and cross processed (they’re shot on slide film, but processed in print chemicals). The image quality isn’t too good, as CVS did the processing and scanning, and they suck. I used my Yashica Lynx 5000 camera (an old rangefinder) to take these.
