Colors....


Off Airline Hwy near Aikey's....
Water over the road at Black Hawk Park....
Sweet....
I went into the park anyway....
Baby Rhea and I went for a ride after lunch....
She was excited....
Rolling along....
It didn't take long....
I went out for a ride on the Surly this morning. Mid 50's and sunny. There is still water over the East Lake Trail so I rode the dike to Greenbrier and took Airline to Cedar Falls. Once passed the Rollerdrome I headed out to Big Woods Lake via the back roads. I went around the east side then through the sand where the north end of the trail used to be. I was hoping they would replace it yet this year but it doesn't look like they will. It's about 300 yards of sand to the old parking lot and trail head. It's not bad if it hasn't rained in a couple of days and it was an easy trip today. It's torn up this year so that they can put in a "high end" campground for motor homes complete with electricity, water, sewer, and cable hookups. I liked it better when it was woods along the bike path. Must be some demand for $40 a night camping. Hmmmm..... From there I headed out to Black Hawk and rode through the park with NO automobile traffic. It was nice and quiet out here this morning. I rode out there awhile then rode back around the west side of Big Woods and into Cedar Falls. Went to lunch at Toad's with Judy, Jackal, Moo, and Baby Rhea, then came home and took Rhea for a ride in the Burley behind the Surly. She lasted about 5 minutes before falling asleep. :) We got in a bit of gravel grinding and bike path riding. The trailer pulls pretty easy....
I hope everyone is having a great weekend!
Ride safe.
Peace out, yo!

Gotta love a gal that's not afraid of helmet hair!

That pic of her asleep reminds me of my Izabel when she used to ride in the trailer. Thanks! That's a great shot.

My kids did the same thing; 10 minutes down the road and lights out.
If only there was a way to pull the Burley in the house! It would have been so much easier to get them to go down for a nap that way! :^)
Looks like you had a good ride; it was a great day here for one too.
