Reno has had great fall weather. Seventy+ degree F temps and sunny. It looks like Friday a change is coming. Forecast drops us to 50-55 with rain. We really need the rain so lets hope so.

Time to put the fenders on!

Have you had your taste of winter yet?

here in Boston. Shoe covers, gloves, and the odd wind vest.

Weekend daytime rides though have been magical - 50s and very windy. Just the thing for wool jerseys and a light pair of long fingered gloves.

But it won't be long until the balaclavas, neoprene booties, windblock jackets, and Lobster gloves start making their appearance. Maybe we'll get lucky and hold 'em off until the New Year.

Don't you just love cycling in the winter?

Cincinnati/Northern KY area.

Two weeks ago, I rode the 70 miles to a friend's farm in Maysville, Ky ...75-80 degrees and sunny.

Yesterday, same ride. Started a 38 degrees, finished early afternoon at 50 degrees.

Fall is here, winter is around the corner. I usually put the bike away after a Halloween club ride. I'll get the bug again around Christmas.

Great fall colors up your way...Lon Norder

Had two great days of mountain biking at Tahoe over the weekend. The mountain/road bikers were out in force! Here's a pick from Hope Valley/highway 88.

Minnesota's fall has been a real stinker. We had hot and humid weather until early September, and since then the temperatures have dropped off of a cliff. The last couple of weeks have seen temperatures hardly crawl into the 40's with no end in sight. That's nearly 20 degrees below average! Yes, we even got a dumping of 5+ inches of snow just north of the Twin Cities yesterday.

On top of all that, we've broken all-time records for the wettest summer/fall seasons ever. This leads to crappy fall color displays as well. Most of the leaves will soon be on the ground before we really get a chance to notice any color changes. Personally, my biking has dropped off of a cliff too (usually fall is the best MTB riding).

Oh well, time to gear up for the X-C ski season (running - ugh!).
