Flint Hills Photography by Bike

In Blog by Eric Comments

Great Sunday ride today! This ride was a lesson in Flint Hills photography. I had to stop to take pictures because the wildflowers were so beautiful. It ended up being a little over 57 miles. My Adventure Monkey was full by mile 48. I tired myself out. I had been sick last week and not very active, so that probably …

A little fun in Photo Booth

In Blog by Eric Comments

Just one more reason to have a Mac. It’s just fun, not to mention I haven’t had a computer problem since my first Macintosh back in 1994 – That’s impressive.

Sick Day

I took another sick day from work today. I am still not feeling very well, and Mikey is still fighting a low fever, so I stayed home again.

My longest bike ride; 90 Road Miles

In Blog by Eric Comments

The day was here for the big ride. In fact it would be my longest bike ride to date at 90 miles. I was meeting a college buddy in Williamsburg, half-way between our towns. Both of us had gotten into cycling this year. I’ve always enjoyed cycling, but mainly singletrack riding on my mountain bike. This year I was turned …

My first big gravel grinder: 64 miles

In Blog by Eric Comments

Sitting on the couch that night, I knew I wanted to do a big gravel grinder the next day. I had a scheduled 90 mile ride coming up in a week. The longest I had done thus far was 46 miles. The family turned in for the evening. I sat in the yellow glow of the end table light. I …
