    Lovely sunny day with 20mph NW winds. I saw a coyote! Very cool. One of my favorite animals.









    New section of the Harlem Valley Rail Trail is coming along nicely. It will give access to some of the best wetlands in the area. #birdwatchingwhilecycling

    I'm always a sucker for the turtle pics. Especially the snappers. If it keeps raining like this we should have them on our lawn in a year or so.

    Got on the bike for an afternoon ride and about 5 miles out my rear derailleur cable snapped at the shifter. A bit of teeth gnashing ensued. Then I noticed I stopped near some goats. The goats came over (probably heard (hah!) my teeth gnashing and thought food maybe) and we had a nice chat. Rode home in one gear.

    Goats are great.

    Washed and repaired my bike this morning. Spun the rear wheel and felt like a bunch of rocks. Switched to the backups with Panarama GravelSkis on them. Different ride. More stable in junk but not so fleet in winds.

    Flickr under repair. So is my rear wheel.

    One of the snow bikes flew south for the summer.

    So, hopped on and went for an hour and a half spin.

    On the flat sand is quite a bit different from the hilly icy snow.

    And, the bike setup is different than the road bikes. So muscles screamed that I didnít know I had.

    So, the next thing to fly south are some tools so I can adjust it a smidge.

    Yesterday's road therapy. Ballston Lake to Lake Desolation to Batchellerville to Fish House to Barkersville to Charlton to home. 83 miles. Mind tangles eased.

    It is black fly season.

    I think this is a wild hydrangea. Woods were full of them on the ridge by Desolation.
