There is plenty of color in this next set taken along the paths I ride. On today’s ride, I did 12 miles which included a stop at the shop where I purchased my Pedego Element bike in late 2021.
The bracket that holds the phone mount wasn’t hanging onto the handlebar, after about thirty minutes of trying different gaskets under the bracket, we managed to make the damn thing stay put. I grabbed several photos today which will be uploaded tomorrow morning.
I skipped putting sunscreen on today and man did my legs and arms brown up! The funny thing though is that my tans are always top-notch farmers tans!
On today’s bike ride I didn’t take many photos so here are all of them in one post. The water in the detention basin is what is left from several days ago when we had a serious downpour. The bike path runs along the basin for maybe one-quarter mile before I turn right and head for Tivoli Village.
The photo of a construction zone is actually the backside of Tivoli Village which was apparently left for a later date and time. My eBike has some seriously fat tires! Today’s ride was twelve miles, the standard distance on most rides since I generally ride the same trail each ride. How is/was your day?

Pedestrian bridge, I’ve seen small city trucks cross this bridge!
All of the grayscale photos were shot on the iPhone using the Lenka grayscale application, the other photos were shot using the new Sony A7C camera which was wrapped in a thick dish towel to protect that expensive body and 28-60mm lens.
Taking the bike ride today was very much a spur-of-the-moment decision since it wasn’t yet 90 degrees, it was a very nice ride.
The only bummer was that when I was crossing over the road on the pedestrian bridge, there was what looked like a middle-aged man passed out on the bridge as the very busy road below flowed with its usual heavy traffic and noise.
This is a great place to live but Las Vegas of course has its unfortunate citizens like any other larger city in this country. So sad… There are 15 photos in this set, more than my usual number.
And a darn fast ride it was! It was fun too, I just never ride that fast, along the way I came upon an older gent on an electric trike. I had a hard time catching up with him and his cute cat in the bag on the front. We had a quick chat then I took off and was so surprised to see him pulling up behind me again, twice! It was so darn nice this morning that I couldn’t resist a ride, at some point, it will be much too hot.
Soon the valley will be back to over 100 degrees each day, bring it on! The downside of this is that it means the end of my bike rides until autumn unless I ride at the crack of dawn which isn’t very likely…
