Been off the bikes for any decently long rides
because of sogginess
in Seattle's eastside foothills
associated with Ahead of Schedule for Wettest January on Record.

but thread title says whenever... and your pictures inspire me to remember.... what i want to do again in a better 2021. Or maybe I will camp.


and sometimes I just like to ride with a friend...... and follow the peanut gallery.

Great weekend day riding in the San Gabriel Mountains. It isn't often you can ride at near 8000 feet without snow and with only a windbreaker ... so we took advantage.

Orange Bike Day
This is from Sunday in Ventura California. Before these hurricane force winds started yesterday. It was eighty degrees , and this is January? Warm even for here! Just waiting for the wind to die down so I can get back out there and ride one of these.

I was at my wife's doctors appointment and coming out and getting ready to ride I though this was interesting how all these buildings on the side of the mountain are connected. its a nice ride with a lot of climbing. the second pic is the top of the tram. a great ride with a fantastic view and really high up. all hospitals and medical school and children's hospitals.

Silly

This sign predates the subdivision and house. It used to face a fenced dirt lot.


Maybe it predates the trail. Because it seems to be saying riding on the MUT is trespassing. Skunk Creek Trail is between the sign and the fence. The river/creek bed is fenced off.


There are similar signs along the fence in the background. Which makes more sense.

Well, I have not been riding except little hops to check-out winter maintenance & upgrades & acquisitions.

But I still enjoy my bikes. These are new builds for me.
