I had my old camera with me and got to do one of my favorite things to do while riding a bike — taking pictures! These pictures below are all taken on the climb up Smyer Road or from the top of the mountain at the Baptist Church.

Tough game tonight, the bats are going to start connecting soon for the Mets! Flat ride, lots of traffic, boring and dangerous. Old railroad and mining structures
