Riding at Dusk

When I got off of work tonight I got home and had some stuff to do around the house and made dinner and then I was off to ride. Tonight was a planned light ride with nothing to hard. I've pushed it the past couple of mornings and I just wanted to take it easy. I also had a pretty good sized supper and if I had gone all out I probably would have had some stomach problems. I was surprised though that I finished my planned loop fairly fast even though I wasn't trying to. I did take the camera with me and here are some pics:

This was the first of about 20 deer I saw tonight. At one point I had 2 of them running down the trail right next to me. It was cool to feel like I was racing the deer.

Picked up some new fox reflex gloves from the shop. They are pretty nice but I need to break in the thumb a bit. My thumbs must be long the rest of the fingers fit perfect but the thumbs are tight. It did get better as the ride went on.

Dusk. Still one of my favorite times to ride.

Not sure what tomorrow is going to bring as far as ride time goes. I'm going to play it by ear. See how I feel. Got some stuff to get done after work.

harp you're amazing. I don't know how you get it all done. From reading all the cycling blogs I do I've come up with this... if there is a lot to do give it to an American.
