Another Ride Under a Beautiful Blue Sky!

Sunshine and 85 degrees, another fun ride this early afternoon. My neck is getting sunburnt. I stopped by the place I purchased the bike from over a year ago and made a service appointment for the bike this coming Friday morning. Service intervals are much shorter for these bikes than a car, of course, and the brake pads may need replacement already since they only last for around 1500 miles and the bike has 1400+ miles on it now. I was a bad biker yesterday and today because I didn’t wear a helmet! It’s risky but life is inherently risky just getting out of bed each day. What did life throw at you today?

Lenka Grayscales

On today’s ride, I took 21 photos, let’s begin with these three. The Lenka application is strictly for the iPhone platform and shots only in grayscale, or black and white if you prefer. I rarely use it but its photos tune up very well in the high dynamic range app on the MacBook. It was 80F with the tiniest breeze, perfect!

Flowers Along The Path

Today’s ride was eighteen miles long with plenty of wind and a small wind chill factor but it was worth it with pure sunshine pouring down on the valley. I had to stop and capture the beautiful flowering trees, the other flowers are located around the base of the fountain at Tivoli Village.

The wind makes my eyes get very wet and they drain down my face but it’s worth every mile for the enjoyment of the experience! I have an appointment next Wednesday with the Pedego shop where I purchased the bike in November of 2021 for a tune-up.

The brakes need adjustment and I’m wondering if the brake pads are ready to be changed at 1,350 miles. These pads are super tiny and don’t last as long as a car’s disc brakes do.

Biking Photos From Yesterday

Good Wednesday morning. I have several more photos from yesterday to share today which will see a high of 63 degrees. That’s about five degrees warmer than yesterday. Happy Hump Day!

Using Up The Old Stuff

Certain photos seem to fall through the cracks so to say and are left hiding in desktop folders, here are three of them. I would love to have one of my 20-mile bike rides today since it’s sunny but the wind has really picked up once again and it’s in the 40s too. Damn… Think 110F degrees!
