Spinner Saturday!!!!!

Welcome to the First Spinner Saturday on the Amazing Shrinking Man. Caloi Rider so far is also involved in this and I hope to get other blogging cyclists in this as well! My pics below are from my ride this morning, sorry about the gray skies but the truly look like November pictures with the trees standing out against the steel gray sky! OK, here are my stats for the week!
Mileage overall, 152 miles, with a 16,640 calorie burn for that. My average pace was 12-16 mph on a mountain bike converted to a commuter, basically! Shortest ride was today at 9 miles and the longest this week was 30 miles. Terrain, moderately hilly. Ride surface: Pavement primarily as there isn't much in the way of mountain bike accessible trails right around Lafayette. The pictures are of the overlook from Soldiers home road over the Wabash Valley and from the trail called the NW Greenbelt in West Lafayette, IN. Click the title of this post and follow an embedded link to Caloi's blog! It's called the Uphill Battle!

I have a short biking story about Saturday. It was a beautiful, sunny, and warm (warmer than usual for this time of year)day. My BF and I wanted to go see a movie. That's when the light bulb went off in my head. I suggested we ride our bikes to the movie theater. After about 10 minutes of talking it over, I got my wish. YAY! The ride was on neighborhood roads and eventually onto highway roads (a little scary). But the trees were putting on their brightest and most colorful "costumes" of the year. I loved it. Unfortunately, by the time the movie was over it was dark and we had to call for a car ride home (no lights on these bikes...yet! lol).

I love your pictures, thanks for sharing them.

Hi Stormcrowe, I think I'm back in the saddle and the migraines are over for now :)

That actually looks like a lovely ride considering some areas of heavy pollution. I'm so impressed with your stats! Keep it up :)
