I was fortunate to get out on my bike at all today as the predicted stormy weather has not quite hit us yet. It is coming though. They say. When we get the powerful winds and lots of rain, the trees will get denuded of their colorful leaves. Today I got to see the last of them.

My bike “decorated” by the yellow leaves above and below.

Red for my red bike…

Just an easy ride around today. I was a little overdressed as it was much warmer than I thought it would be. Quickly removed my helmet liner, pulled back the overlap of my mittens, Unzipped the pit zips on my jacket, and pulled the zippers on my jerseys down a bit to let in some air. It is hard to know ahead of time how to dress for the day!

    Looks like you have some great fall colors Nancy. Yeah, this time of year I always struggle with how to dress for a ride. I almost always end up being too hot or too cold.

    That red tree almost blinded me with its brilliance.

    Great red and yellow decoration! It’s taking me a while, too, to figure out how to dress for the cooler weather. I haven’t been dressing warmly enough. I don’t even know if I can dress warmly enough. We are in the upper 40’s now, brrrrr!

    I am so happy to have taken the ride to get this gorgeous color ;’-). Now the wind and rain sets in and I try to get out if there is a lull. That means very short riding in dull surroundings but at least getting out. Thank you all for taking a peek at these colors with me, and for your comments. Who knows when I will get out of this deluge for longer riding and more interesting times!!!
