Fall ride photos

My wife and I took a nice fall ride today. The temps were in the mid 60s and it was beautiful. We rode to Clifton, VA!

We rode out to Occoquan Reservoir for a few photos, then into Clifton for breakfast, then back to Alexandria. A nice mix of freeway, backroad twisties and in town riding. She is doing amazingly for such a new rider.

That's fantastic, Jim!

It was a great day for a ride, at least until 3pm when the temp dropped like a bomb, at least out on Shepherdstown.

Let's hope she gets some more rides in before year end.

It was a great morning for a ride. Great to see a new rider enjoying the ride. Hope to see her at the New Year's Day ride. The three wheels could be handy for the winter.

Jim,

Looks like you had a great time!

Two weeks ago I was all set to drive from the bottom of Pennsylvania to the top and back again--figuring that there would be great fall colors somewhere along the way. Then I sprained my wrist the night before! Oh well. I may have to quick plan a trip from the top of North Carolina to the bottom and back…
