    This is just an excuse to say that on June 15 with full sleeves, a warm shirt and knees covered my hands got cold enough to be reluctant operating the shifters. Was really nice, though.

    that makes 9 days...the woods have been really special the last few days...cleaned the hardest climb, but biffed the easiest descent

    I rarely bring a phone on a ride for pictures, but yesterday I did so. Drove up to Lake Geneva, WI for a spin. These pictures don't show it but there was actually far too much traffic on the roads and fewer options where I was than I expected. But it was a good ride and I'm going to be doing it again.

    The good news is that after a few crazy years I'm finally back to semi-regular riding and am on track to exceed last year's mileage easily and should get back to the level of a few years ago, hopefully more.

    Cold Springs creek crossing on Mountain Dr (washed away during mudflow/flood couple of years ago) is getting a new bridge, started construction last week. All the boulders in the first pic on the creek bank were placed there after the mudflow as the creek bed was scoured clean down to bedrock. This is really great as Mtn Dr. will be again be rideable in its entirety without a rather long detour, downside is probably an increase in auto traffic in the area. The crane is brand spanking new, just arrived on site today, not even dust on it yet. Government contract....might as well get new equipment for the job. Crane cab is pretty cool looking, aero anyone? My bike next to it in full view pic for scale(in shadow at bottom), that's as big as they could get in there on the tight and curvy road.

    RideWGPS doesn’t always connect roads the way you’d like.

    Hey Pete - the lady who owns Westenclock is very nice if you run out of water. Honey Dog Farm is a great operation and nice people too. Their land is nearly the whole valley from Pumpkin Hill Road down south to 23. James Agee lived on Rodman Rd. across from the wetlands. Someone bought it in December and is fixing it up. The reason the section of Wolf Hill Road where it intersects Rodman Road and then Rodman Road down to the bridge are still gravel is because Mrs. Hansen owns most of the property in that area and won't let the town pave it. She's great.

    Nice pond!

    Up the Old Croton Aquaduct to Tarrytown and then over the Tappan Zee Bridge and down 9W in Jersey over the GWB.

    Crumpton even with 650's was not the right bike for the OCA. It was pretty but not as quick as I would have liked due to my fear of doing something untoward to the bike given how overgrown the OCA has gotten hiding all of those little rocks and holes. Next time it will be roads up to there.

    Happy that I had the time to do the 50 plus miles and I do love the Crumpton. It is such a pleasure to ride.

    Even though, in the city, the traffic is back....which is crazy....from now on bike paths in city and roads in country. Like it always was.
