Solo Junction ride up the Easy Side. Saw a few regulars.
Poppies and lupines are still going strong on the South and there were lots of fans taking in the excitement.
Wildlife Encounter: deer near the Kiosk.
Roadkill Report: an opossum in an advanced state of putrification... too smelly even for vultures.
I think I've had my current tires on the Klein for three years - that's amazing even given my reduced mileage after the patella fracture; but I noticed a gash in the tread today, so I resolved to replace them after this ride. That's the last batch of my favorite tires, Vittoria EVO somethings with the file tread pattern. One of the reasons I like them so much was that tread pattern looks so much like the classic tubular tire pattern. See Product Review at the end of this post.

|I talked to this guy for a while; his name's Bob. He heard my bike speaker playing Bob Dylan, and we agreed that Blood on the Tracks was one of the best albums of all time.|
|I like taking pictures of people taking pictures of people.|
|Vittoria Open Corsa - you will be missed, maybe.|
