An early morning tour of Reno...(12 posts)

Thought I would pop the digicam into my pocket and snap a few shots of my favorite mixed road/off road loop.

This first shot is of an old schoolhouse located in a regional park at the base of Windy Hill.

I hope you enjoy the ride as much as I did!

And up the road a bit, we meet the singletrack trailhead.

Uh-oh, it looks like it has been sold. Another one bites the dust?

Take the high road?, or the low road?

The low road is tough enough....

A wave of McMansions appears to be washing over the area. This is not quite as pretty as it once was.

The nice thing is, at least it looks a little better when you get down amongst the development.

Sorry about the first image being chopped, the computer is off it's feed today...

I'll leave you with this pretty little hillclimb.

Have a great weekend!

What? No Hot August Nights Cars?cory

For the hundreds of you who DON'T live in Reno, this is the weekend of Hot August Nights, a nostalgia/car festival. There are about 5,000 custom/restored/vintage cars in town. I'm taking the singlespeed and ride down through the concours d'elegance at lunch, watch them all flinch when I wobble by....
Good stuff, where are the trees???MB1

Been there a few times and it sure looks the same.

What kind of bike are you riding?

sweet! That's my ride RW... I do loop from the Mt. Rose power substation to back behind ballardini ranch (two laps) about 4 mornings a week (at 5 a.m.) There's a piece of single track that heads down toward Ridgeview where you can see the city lights and the sun rise that's nirvana. Well except this morning when I ate crap there, but ya' know.

You've inspired me to not forget the digital next time.
