Yes, but it’s also true that the coldest days of winter are ahead of us.

Took this old girl out for a 30k ride along the lake to end out 2021. Gloomy days of winter.

South Mountain Park

Rode to South Mountain Park yesterday.


Mostly pavement. Then up this trail. Hike a bike the last couple hundred yards.


Parked in the saddle and walked to see a place called "The Cafe" in a secluded pocket.


Seating available. Good luck getting service.

Last Friday it was over 60 deg F when I rode up to Rocheport on the Katy. Missouri River and I-70 Bridge in the background.

Well short of spectacular,
a small ruralish road
that tips up and down
twists left and right
with green, tended fields
makes a soothing ride.
Wish it was more than a few passing miles along my way on wheels
