Some gravel bikes, too. I'm on the left.

We got pretty high! This is the view from the place the above pic was taken. All up from there.

Some of those young freeriders or slopestylers could probably do it. I would just embarrass myself.

And from earlier in the week, it may be winter but I'm still getting plenty of smiles per miles.

Winter came a bit early this year but as long as the sun is shining life is good! Had a bit of fun putting this video to music last week during one of my rides along the river.

Mt Fuji with rain clouds seen across Suruga bay from the village of Heda on the west coast of Izu peninsula, about 45 km / 28 mi to the south of the mountain. I took this picture on my first Century ride of December, which completed 100 consecutive months of "Century a Month".

If all goes well, January will be month #101

Sky Harbor Airport

Rode to the airport just to get a shot of a 747. Always missed them before. Lighting not the best.




From the MUP across the river from the airport.

Its amazing how much that air traffic control tower in Phoenix looks like one at McCarren (Las Vegas). I think there are two at McCarren, a region-wide FAA tower, and a tower for the airport itself.
