Blue Sky

It was extremely foggy last night, leading me to expect I could score an out-the-garage-door photo of the driveway and court wrapped in thick, impenetrable grayness this morning. Surprisingly, however, the fog burned off as soon as the sun came up, so I missed my shot. Oh, well. Clear blue sky was better for biking.

Something Like Four Pictures and Four Short Videos About Today’s Minnesota Weather

I’m not going to subject you to Storm Chaser Greg’s irritating voice and insane weather hysterics today. No doubt, that guy’s schtick is wearing thin on everybody by now. I ignored the warning signs and went for a bike ride. If I didn’t have such a sturdy bike and such a tough-guy spirit, that could’ve … Continue reading "Something Like Four Pictures and Four Short Videos About Today’s Minnesota Weather"

A Gray Sky Makes Everything Else Look Gray Too

It’s true, gray begets gray. After three consecutive days of dark gray skies here in MY Town, EVERYTHING is starting to appear gray to me. At this point, I’m even hallucinating in gray. Nevertheless, I was compelled to go for a bike ride in the grayness again today. But, of course, I had to tune … Continue reading "A Gray Sky Makes Everything Else Look Gray Too"

A City For All Seasons (All of Them Terribly, Terribly Hazardous)

I looked out the window and it seemed much brighter than it should have at 7:00 a.m. this time of year. Thank you Central Standard Time. It also looked pretty nice out there but, as everybody knows, looks can be deceiving. In order to get an official weather statement, I turned the TV on and … Continue reading "A City For All Seasons (All of Them Terribly, Terribly Hazardous)"

From Dangerously Boring to Frighteningly Windy

At the end of yesterday’s post, I hinted at the change in weather that was taking place over the course of my bike ride. I hope the suspense wasn’t too unbearable, but it probably was. After all, I have been called “Cycle365’s Master of Suspense” and “The Alfred Hitchcock of the Cycling World” by lots … Continue reading "From Dangerously Boring to Frighteningly Windy"

Uncooperative Minnesota Weather

I can’t believe it’s already November 5th. Correction: I CAN believe the date. What I meant to say is “I can’t believe it’s already five days into the November Weather Challenge and Storm Chaser Greg has yet to make an appearance. This challenge seems to have been tailor-made for his over-the-top weather reporting. I guess … Continue reading "Uncooperative Minnesota Weather"

Using Cycle365 In An Unauthorized And Somewhat Sneaky Way

That’s right, folks, this post is deceitful in every way. The underhandedness began when I checked the “Challenge of the Month” box. Yes, it does show me riding my bike decorated with a really cute dog and a predatory bird. But it’s a picture taken long before the “October Decorate Your Bike Challenge” began. In … Continue reading "Using Cycle365 In An Unauthorized And Somewhat Sneaky Way"

Sad: Ending a Fun Bike Tour. Happy: Special Dispensation from The Feeshko to Continue On. And a Surprisingly Happy Ear Worm

I know I’ve been largely absent from my own monthly challenge and, again, that’s because I’ve been preoccupied with my bike tour in Idaho. But I check in on this site once in a while and I appreciate the participation. I cannot believe there is still a German gal who continues to post something happy … Continue reading "Sad: Ending a Fun Bike Tour. Happy: Special Dispensation from The Feeshko to Continue On.

Happiness Is Being In The Snake River Canyon. Sadness Is Having To Leave It.

It was real easy to get down into the canyon — like, 40 mile per hour easy — and it was easy to ride in the canyon. Maybe that’s why I’m so happy. But possibly the happiest part was the 10 mile, 2,000 foot climb out of the canyon on a road that I can … Continue reading "Happiness Is Being In The Snake River Canyon.

Food Related Pictures From Our Road Trip

The Feeshko and I took our time driving out to Spokane, WA for her niece’s wedding, dividing the 1500-mile drive into four days and three nights. The first night was spent in Bismarck, the capitol city of North Dakota. You might recognize the capitol building pictured in the featured photo. Once I wrote extensively about … Continue reading "Food Related Pictures From Our Road Trip"

“Cyclist’s Favourite Treats, And Where To Find Them In Lednar’s Town”

OK, I shamelessly copied and pasted Greg’s last post title with a few alterations but doing something as easy as you can appeals to me. I rode my bike up to Kalamunda’s Sunday Growers Market yesterday hoping to get some fresh Blue Mana Crabbs but they’re not in season so I ended up going into … Continue reading "“Cyclist’s Favourite Treats, And Where To Find Them In Lednar’s Town”"

You Just Never Know Who You Might Run Into

Friday was scheduled to be my last day at my son’s house, so I decided before I left to take one more ride on the local rail trail before heading home. Just north of Millerton, NY, I see a couple of touring cyclists approaching me, riding some sort of interesting looking small-wheeled bikes. They look … Continue reading "You Just Never Know Who You Might Run Into"
