Despite the weather, the hardy TDF fans showed up for the fun filled festival.


This year we stayed till the very end before riding back over the GG Bridge.

New Things

I've started a new job as a coordinator for Safe Routes to Schools, moved to a new apartment, and I have a new bike.


The bike classes are filling in and that makes me happy. Our crew sweated out a hot one today at Kent MS where I saw Gandhi, or at least his head.

I've been riding, mostly to the office.

Tennessee Valley

Over Alto Hill and into the cool quiet fog.

I rode to Tennessee Valley where I saw a bobcat, quail, and deer.
On the return trip I saw a large fox in Alto Bowl.
