9 degrees early morning...will it warm up? 11:00am 47 degrees! Yikes, I'm outa here. Still no dry dirt to be had but my winter fall back ride is at a big park full of bike trails south of where I live. I drive past a whole buncha dirt trails to get to this area, but today's theme was: no riding on muddy dirt and No Vehicles. I'll be on concrete but it's just me, runners and other bikers. Heading to where I was going it didn't look like the dirt trails were really rideable unless you're on a Pugsley.

Speaking of No Vehicles: the only time you'll see these parking lots empty is Christmas. All other times they're packed.

There was a vintage Mustang parked next to me. Convertible, fast. Probably a great summer ride.

A large herd of deer appeared out of nowhere (deer have a habit of just appearing, no noise, no warning...suddenly they're there. Don't know if they knew where they were going but they were headed there pretty fast.

It's about a 10 mile loop. Absolutely bike path material but, as I say in the winter, any dry port (trail) in a storm. This loop just dried off in the last few days because of really high winds. Today was about 45 degrees and wonderful.

I love to photograph this parabolic mirror. First a roadie coming through then some Photoshop. (next set of pics).

The rest of the pics. My Burner is retired to the basement. I'm on my PUSHed townie, rocking the vee brakes and 3" Skareb. I'm liking the vee brakes for these kinds of rides, lots of easy-going modulation. They almost feel more familiar to me than discs.

Also a look back on the vehicle-less roads I rode.
