Just Rides — Photos Added

Western Flyer in southern Iroquois County

Winter wheat stubble in the background

Corn is catching up after a late planting

Party Bridge with bullet scar in the R of Vermilion — lots of good times happen here  😉

Along the North Fork/Vermilion River

Soybeans right and left

There are a very few hedge rows left

Corn plants give the Diamond Back a hug

Soybeans are rather indifferent towards DB

Grant Township does an excellent job of maintaining the roads — re-surfaced patches are as smooth as the original chip seal.

Heading north back to town

Can you spot my passenger?

Must have hopped on at the bean field — de-bicycled at Illinois Route 9

(He was approved by TSA for travel — no carry-ons and not considered a threat)

First ride share bicycles Ive seen in real life  — Urbana, IL near the University of Illinois

Veoride says they last 1 1/2 to 3 years

Urbana, Illinois — Diamond Back purchased here



Very much enjoy all the entries you all have provided -- great to see the everyday cycling venues. Being in eastern Illinois, scenery certainly isn't our forte, but oh well, the roads are normally quiet. Look forward to more and more entries from all of you, I do have a few over on BL -- in Bill's Day Rides, and one journal.

      Just added a photo of Red Headed Doll Babies — Suzanne has a great photo of them too.

        Looks like the Bavarian red headed doll babies can almost compete! I wouldn’t have thought to include the picture either if Janet hadn’t mentioned them!

      Thanks, Sockey is doing well, Ive lost track — have you seen him since he got refurbished?
      During the time you were in CO I believe.

      Not perfect, but way better than he was: http://cycle365.life/asbestos/
