    It's good to pretend:

    Work on the southeast side. Play on the southeast side.



    When things like this are part of the trail I just ride over them. When they are features are get scared.



    I never thought I'd be learning to jump at my age.

    45 miles on a multi use trail.

    I ran over a squirrel who darted out in front of me. Felt bad about that, I’m pretty sure he won’t survive being squished by 150 lbs of cyclist and bike.

    On a better note, in a month these trees will be golden and there’ll be a carpet of the leaves covering the trail.

    Ride to the woods then hill reps in the woods, on 650b x 38 road tyres and cantilever brakes, and ride home. With my current state of fitness I prefer struggling in the woods with nobody to observe me except a bunch of squirrels who all got out of my way.

    Finally, some blue skies. I know fire season is just starting, but I try not to think about it. Enjoy the light wind and the views on the pre-work spin and try not to think about the end of the world.

    For something completely different in a place completely different, I went for a little exploration 7 miles and change down the beach.

    Out east that way, Fire Island (which is really just a sand bar held together by dune grass and poison ivy) is about 1/3 of a mile wide. There is the Atlantic Ocean on one side and the Great South Bay on the other. Both are very much bodies of salt water.

    If you look from the bay side or the ocean side, you see nothing special...just sand and some low beach type vegetation...



    But if you follow the dune crossing, you come into this wonderland of the « Sunken Forest » which dips way down below the sea level which borders it just by a few yards. It is a magical place with 30-40 foot tall trees. You have to stay on the paths as it is very fragile but it is fascinating with many, many different types of trees that aren’t normal for a sandbar but somehow they found this fresh water/ protected place. There are even oaks and maples (those pictures aren’t even as good as these poor ones).



    It was a very grey day. But it was a very great day.

    A walk with my SO in a conservation property in the next town over. Pleasant eskers, hills and fine erratic. Just traces of color.

    There's something foreboding yet serene about a cloudy post-industrial shot like that. Can't quite describe it. Sorta like Ansel Adams, but with more concrete.

    Also, when did you learn to jump on your MTB? I tried when I was 33, and I'm downright shyte at it...
