On the way home, we stopped again at Mayer State Park. Both Jamison and I took some pictures.
November was wet and cold, but I kept riding to work and taking pictures on the way.
I didn’t hit 2,000 miles, but I got within 22 miles of it. I don’t think there’s much doubt whether I’ll reach it.
|Distance||Time / Bike|
|253 miles||Biked in November 20131|
|1,978 miles||Biked in 20132|
|1,813 miles||Biked on Sage3|
I’m thankful for the love of pets, friends, family, and God. May the latter three always be as obvious as the first.
Dragging my feet on the road to Dixie, I stopped at Mayer State Park to snap a few pictures. This one captured the mood perfectly.
Today’s airport experience in PDX was downright nice: the TSA was scanning boarding passes at the far end of the line and sending a large portion through the “PRE” line. Those of us lucky enough to be selected went through security pre-9/11 style: coats, shoes, and belts stayed on and computers remained packed. As another passenger said, “It’s like were not the enemy today.”
I hope your day was filled with nice surprises, too.
Another beautiful day in Hillsboro!
I took a bike ride,1 exploring the Rock Creek area north of Highway 26. On the way back, I traveled the same trails as last week. I aimed the camera in the opposite direction to capture the sun peering between the trees, and then went crazy2 with Google+’s photo editor to make it look a little like water color. I hope you like it.
How was your day?
21 degrees this morning and I’m staying warm.
60 42 miles to 2,000 miles on the bike this year. I should easily ride that before the end of November, with another month yet to go in the year.
Today was another chilly, sub-freezing morning, though the picture I snapped on the way to work could pass for early spring.1
I dressed for bicycling in the cold: rain pants over long pants, rain jacket over long sleeved T-shirt and long sleeved pullover, Gore-Tex helmet liner, headband over nose and mouth, full-finger gloves, and sunglasses. Amazingly, I did not overheat. Instead, my feet got cold. If this weather continues, I think I’ll try a couple of pairs of socks.
