Autumn hasn't been that much to look at here; it was too dry and hot in September, and too wet in October, for much fall color.

That said, I found a corner where the oaks and maples both managed some brilliance. It's not a mountainside, but it's a roadside of fall!

Sounds like your urban canyons are interfering with the GPS signal, right? The easy prescription would be to fall back to a traditional wired or wireless speedometer/cyclocomputer. But if you're as gadget-happy as I get sometimes, maybe it's time to add a speed sensor!
