The only long ride was Bicycle Idaho. Here are some pictures you can view while waiting for the video.

Bike rides in 2005

Not quite so many trips this year, what the wedding and all. But here's a short one to see some vintage aircraft at a local airport.

Bike rides in 2004

This is a record of some rides this year. The first invitational was Sunday, April 25, but it was put on by the club I belong to, so I had to work the parking lot that day. But I did get out early to take a few personal items to my wife Cynthia, who was working as a Red Cross volunteer in Utica, which was hit by the Tuesday (April 19) tornado.

I had taken some photos there last year, during the Starved Rock club's annual Pumpkin Pie ride of October 5, 2003. I printed out those shots and took some new ones from as close as I could get to the same locations.

Bike rides in 2003

Here are some photos I took on various bike rides last year. I carry the camera when the ride will be leisurely, and when I think of it. I photograph what interests me at the time, and wonder later why I took most of the shots. I was able to remember the motivation for those posted here.
