March Challenge

Raleigh on 4000N

Snow still present with rapid melting today as strong south winds bring in warmer air

Cycling along to the tune of . . . . .

Bicycle, Bicycle, Bicycle

I want to ride my bicycle, bicycle, bicycle
I want to ride my bicycle
I want to ride my bike
I want to ride my bicycle
I want to ride it where I like

Photos from later in the day 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.

    Oh, I know those brown fields from my spring starts on the bike tours. I know you are hanging out for the equinox and some warmer weather. SO did March come in like a lamb or a lion?

    I remember my mom playing California Dreamin’ (plus John Denver, the Bee Gees and a couple others) when we made cookies when I was a kid. I had never really listened to the lyrics until just now though. Very good! Thanks!

      Thanks! March is lamb-like for now at least — being the Midwest, well the Midwest is the Midwest — so who knows.
      More than ready for warmer and green.
      Hope things are cooling down for you and Australia, more ways than one!

    Queen and The Mamas and the Papas . . . I love it!

    “California Dreamin'” is such a sweet and innocent song. I sure am glad those lyrics to the right of the video aren’t the actual lyrics.

      Yikes! I didnt look over there — No idea where that came from or why.
      New version posted!

      At least I found the Queen Bicycle Race video that isnt R rated. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Yeah for you! Great choice of song “All the leaves are brown, and the sky is grey…” I guessed the song before I saw your answer. Chalk up one point for Hopkins & I. Cheers & happy pedaling.

    I actually thought of both of those songs for a ride along Rich โ€” great minds I guess. At this point I have no ideas about music for a bike ride. I may sit back this month and enjoy everyone elseโ€™s choices ;โ€™-)

    I’m impressed! I do not bicycle when there is snow anywhere near me, if I can help it. Like your photo.
