Again this past little while the cycling has been a mixed bag. Most of it is commuting into the shop here at Art Brulant, but, for variation, some of it not so. Trying to tack some extra riding onto a daily commute does work, but sometimes you want something different. Some routes just can’t be added on.
So this past week included some different territory. I enjoyed that. Must do more!
Your standard gravel route. Approximately 85-95% of my riding is on gravel. The rest, though paved, is still on back roads. Though I am not comfortable on some of the main roads (pup trailers on logging trucks – think ‘an uncontrolled puppy dog’s tail’), someday I should try some longer paved routes. It would be nice to compare average speeds on both.
Wild Blue Flag Iris and Cinnamon Fern. Finding these in a rather wet area the mosquitos were very friendly.
Canada Anemone. I really like the way these carpet the sides and ditches on a road.
I found these wooden sculptures on a bridge en route. They were just there. Great!
