October Country Ramble

I took a nice country ramble on my bike today, retracing a route I last rode two years ago, in the afternoon of the evening Sheryl had her heart attack.

What’s ironic is this spot is so remote, that two years ago I had the thought (premonition?) “I wonder if I have cell coverage out here, if I have a heart attack?”

Anyway, I didn’t, and Sheryl has recovered amazingly well, so on to today’s ride.

I rode just under 24 miles today, bringing my total for the month to 275. I thought earlier my last 300 mile month was in 2015, but now I think it was in July of 2014. In any case, it’s been a while, and I should make it again this October.

The first photo is a stand of red trees, a mile or so south of Shawnee, on 8th.

Next up is the Quivira Road bridge, where I took a number of shots, ending with a couple of shots looking back on the area.

The low water bridge over the creek at Quivira Road, east of 8th, had been rebuild since 2014. Some brush had been cleaned out as well.

It’s still very pretty area even after the cleanup.

The road was a bit muddier than anticipated, which didn’t present any real problems, though I had a first today: I spun my back tire! That’s an odd feeling in a car, and even stranger when you’re providing the power directly and feeling the spin. Wheee!
