Nice, Quiet Morning Rides

A few days ago, I decided I wanted to get up and go for a bike ride this morning, before things warmed up too much. I just got back a short bit ago after riding around the reservoir (in fact, breakfast is still cooking!). I took the camera because it was just going to be a leisurely ride, and…well, I like taking photographs. This route is one of my favorites; it’s about 25 miles round-trip from home around the Cherry Creek reservoir, and mostly in very bicycle-friendly areas.

With a target start-time of 7am, we were out the door just before 7:40, and enjoyed a quiet approach to the trail.

It was a perfect morning for a ride, as it was a little overcast and stayed cool the entire time. Lauren crushed it on all the uphills, thanks to her versatile gearing.

As we got to the reservoir, we found that there was an organized bike ride going on (later determined to be something called the Goose Chase), so we went the opposite direction from what I usually go around the reservoir, and it was a refreshing change of pace.

 

To the west it was beautiful and blue.

And to the east, it was beautiful and gray.

And what kind of ride report would be complete without a shot of me totally killing it on my fixed-gear CX bike?

’til next time folks, go have some fun out there!
