1st ILLUSTRATED ride report.KG 361

went out for 35 miles this morning taking my new Nikon Cool Pix 4300 along. Here are a few shots of the ride. This is Limekiln road, my favorite passage to many routes.
Down we go!KG 361

Down Mt Airy drive. Had to tuck the camerea away; a nice little s turn awaits!
There really is a dam here.KG 361

The creek is really high now. Usually there is a bout a 6ft drop at this dam. Almost nothing now.
Ski area over there.KG 361

Starting down across the ski area.KG 361

Great singletrack here, I'm told. (Haven't checked it out, yet.)
Another great reason to live in this area.KG 361

Horses! What makes this area good for cycling, also makes it good for horseback riding. Lots of horse farms and stables around here.No more pics! Out of memory.
Very pretty and green. It looks like it has been really wet...rwbadley

in your area. Where are you? I like to see that water flowing at the dam. Looks like alot of trees are under six feet of water.

Horses are overated in my book. They're like really really expensive dogs, or cheap kids (I guess) either way, they can be a pain in the heiney. ;-))
Very wet!KG 361

Just outside of Harrisburg, PA. it's been raining here since, well, I can't remember. Forever, I think! Almost forgot one of my favorite roads, McCormack drive. This road will make you feel like a pro! (Nice'n flat-one of the few around here.) Notice the creek, again.

Yep it was, wasn't it? Any chance we'll see you at the RBR ride on June 29th? Where are you at?

I used to live in Middletown and I would ride down in that area. We'd be happy to have you come on the RBR ride, if you don't mind riding with a bunch of "old guys". =)
Nice looking roads you have thereTower

They look really smooth.......or is that just an illusion?
Some are great.KG 361

Others really s&*k. Depends if they are bringing the sewer/water out to those areas. If they are, after the digging, you've got nice, smooth, blacktop!
Nice report...JL

I guess the June 29 ride will head out Limekiln road? Unless some unforseen circumstances crop up, looks like I'll be out to Harrisburg.

Nice report with the new camera. Looks like you need a bigger memory card and/or use a smaller resolution to fit more pix.

Happy riding.

John
Nice report...KG 361

Combination of the 2. Small memory card and I will choose a lower res on the next series. It does make for nice photos, though. Glad to hear you'll be able to make it on June 29.
Man, we have been on all those roads. Good riding! nm.MB1
