Each January 1, I like to take a ride, weather permitting. Weather permitted.

I try to start out each new year with a ride. This year the first ride was on the vintage bike.
A nice 342 mile ride for lunch today.

44 degrees and foggy...but we show up on New Years regardless.

Chilly temperatures kept the size of the contingent for our annual Death Valley ride down to about a dozen hardy souls. Low 30s leaving Las Vegas but warming nicely to 50 degrees as we approached sea level. No better way to start a New Year than a ride with friends. Furnace Creek, Death Valley 01-01-13.jpg
Just as a contrast to the preceding pic! From this week...

North River Road near Cherohala Skyway in the morning and the Blue Ridge Parkway that evening
Good mix of gravel and asphalt
Rode down to the Lake Gaston/Kerr Lake area near the Virginia-North Carolina state line today. Tugboat Dan was built in 1937 and spent some of her years in service on Kerr Lake. She was retired in 1992. The /5 has another 14 years to go to match the 55 years Dan was in operation.

Sometimes the road looks more like a riverbed...
