My main goal for today’s ride was to verify that those things in Arborus Nesticus were actually nests and not mistletoe, as some people have suggested after viewing my post yesterday. I thought the zoomed-in picture at the top of this page would settle the controversy once and for all, but I have to admit it doesn’t clearly show the leaf & stick construction. Oh well, I tried.
Since I was out in this cold and windy weather anyway, I figured I might as well continue my Hare-Brained Tree Quest. I should clarify one thing before I show my pictures. In the original Portland Heritage Tree Quest, the “Heritage” refers to the trees. In the MY Town Hare-Brained Tree Quest, the “Hare-Brained” refers to the quest. I didn’t want anybody to think the TREES were hare-brained.
Hi. My name is Greg and I ride my bike a lot. That is to say, I ride my bike almost every day. I go on long rides and short rides. Sunny rides, cloudy rides, and rainy rides. I like commuting, errand-running, day-tripping, overnighting, and touring on my bike. I ride on city streets, highways, gravel, single track, and snow with equal enthusiasm. Sometimes I ride fast and sometimes I ride slow. I try to keep my feet on the pedals at stop lights and I do not dismount when I hop up on a curb. I have a roadie bike, a mountain bike and a touring bike. I try to accept any challenge a bike ride can throw at me without complaint. But I don't like bugs.
