2018 Bianchi Infinito Celeste

I got my first new bike in 6 years, and she’s a beauty if I do say so myself! Presenting my 2018 Bianchi Infinito Celeste, a modern road bike that is built more towards comfort than speed, though she’s still plenty fast. She rides like a dream and I expect to ride many thousands of … Read more

Bike at the River

Spring is already 1/3 complete, but given we had snow the last two Saturdays, this post is actually pretty timely and not late at all. Today marked a number of cycling milestones.

600 Miles in Two Months

Sunset on the Smoky Hill River

This post marks big milestone in my cycling “career.” I just finished riding every day in November. I guess you could call it an unoffical “30 Days of Cycling.” No particular reason, but once I had reached 20 or so days in a row I decided to try and complete the cycle. (sorry) It wasn’t … Read more

Racing the Storm

Stormy Bike Ride

It was so hot and miserable today, and windy to boot, that I had mostly decided to pass on riding my bike. Then a storm blew in, and while it was still hot, the cloud cover and greatly reduced wind induced me to take off. I’m glad I did! Besides the natural joy of riding, … Read more

Sunset on the Meadowlark Trail in July

Meadowlark Trail

Home has come to mean riding the Meadowlark Trail as much as anything, and after a week’s absence it was great to be reunited with this scenic former railroad line south of Lindsborg. Riding in the beautiful golden light of sunset made it all the better.

Scenes from a Bike, Circa October 2015

Scenes from a Bike

I took a late afternoon ride down the Meadowlark Trail today. The lighting was great and I got a few pictures along the way, including some sunset shots at the west edge of Lindsborg, at the corner of Highway 4 and Burma Road.
