Cycle Days Challenge: November 2020

The foliage was particularly vibrant this year but the colors are fading fast and the temperature is dropping from day to day. We have already had many nights with temperatures below freezing, and although the days warm up a bit there’s no denying that more cold riding is in the offing. But the change to winter conditions is gradual enough that the body is given a bit of time to adjust, or at least I like to think so.


I'm a US born ex-pat, having lived most of my adult life in Munich, Germany. Cycling and photography are my favorite things.

    Too easy! Despite the awesome colors in the November 3rd picture, it didn’t overcome my immediate appreciation of the Nov.1st black & white photo. That’s the one that wins the “Greg’s Favorite Suzanne Photo” award for November.

      Thanks, Greg, glad you liked it. That was one of those days where I was really enjoying the “bad” weather.

    Very colourful, autumn would the best time to cycle Europe I reckon.

      The weather is a bit unpredictable by the time the leaves are turning and the days short. I think spring and early summer are the most enjoyable for cycling.

    All great photos, especially the ones with lots of color, Nov 2 and 3, Nov 19 with the great reflections, and the 26th with the sun thru the fog and trees.
    Great work as you always do.

      Thanks, Rich! November was certainly a colorful month. December is looking quite monochrome.

    I particularly like Nov 10th. Something about that sky over that road going off into the distance.

      Roads going off in the distance have a special appeal, don’t they.

    Spectacular. And a good number of cycling days for you ;’-). My favorite (always a hard choice) is November 26 with the sun stars and the red stars from you bike light.

    I am recently having to kick myself out the door for a ride, and if there is rain, the kick is never quite swift enough! Short daylight hours are always a challenge for oom-pah-pah.

      Thanks, Nancy! I was really excited when I saw the sun rays through the trees and fog. I then had to position myself right to catch a sunburst.
      I agree, it’s hard to get out in this current weather. I have given myself permission to take a winter break. But then the sun came out and the roads were dry, so I got on my bike again. 🙂
