Spooky Day ...

It is pounding rain and blacker than the inside of a crow. A very spooky start to All Hallow's Eve day.

Last weekend was warm with drizzle, not this heavy rain, so I pulled out the Iron Horse and went riding. I love the mountain bike, it's big, safe and can take me places Ruby just can't.

Saturday was spent riding through our forest trails and along the roads to the was fantastic....Sunday the I.H. was loaded up on to the bike rack and we headed to Flat Rapids, just outside of Stewartville where I meet up with a couple of friends and we headed to the TCT that would take us to Renfrew. It was VERY windy and cool but that didn't stop us.

Here is some of 30K+ ride in pictures.

Had to do a little trail maintenance along the way.

We rode past swamps and marshes.

Across some pretty interesting bridges.

Some VERY interesting bridges.

and met up with some colourful characters.

Got a group hug while we were at Coco Jarry's

This one's a little too thin for me.

Don't look up,

and then, there he was, sitting alone at the end of the bar with a far away look in his eyes...

my kind of guy, an individual, with a great sense of humour, comfortable with the way he presents himself to the, if he only had a.......Brain!

What a fun Halloween day! We had record highs again and I feared that some kids might overheat in their costumes. Our swamps & marches look similar, though. Glad you were able to get out and about on your other trusty steed.
