I started cycling 15 years ago for the exercise.
Motto: Slow and steady is the way to go.
I now spend a lot of time on the trail as a volunteer.
I like to travel as well, normally by car but for the long distances I will fly.
The wind blew all the leaves into a row in front of the house, our maples are almost bare. The neighbors tree across the drive is still green, I was told that the maples that are still green are Norway maple.
Late afternoon we had enough rain to flood the ball diamond, the temp was a pleasant 15.
