We have a buttload of rain coming for the next week and today was the last, mostly dry, day for sometime to come. It's been a while since I've been on the bike, and even longer since a solo, mind cleansing ride.

I opted for music and earbuds. I could hear all the auto traffic, even traffic on nearby roads, and carry on a conversation with others. I could hear myself singing. Not an altogether pleasant sound. Here's a hint. You don't have to blast them at full volume.

|My lunch break. Calapooia River.|
Found some sweet gravel to ride. Love me some gravel.
|Sweet sweet gravel!|
|Sadly only about a mile|
Very peaceful on the roads this time of year. Everything seems calm after the hustle of summer, and before the insanity of the holidays. I'll take it.
