“Wilco Annex” Cedar Park, 2021

Today I had to pay the registration fee for my motorcycle and decided to ride my bicycle to the county tax office to take care of it. It was a nice feeling to use the bicycle instead of the car to get things done. Soon, though, the Texas heat will be upon us and any bicycling will involve lots of sweat, so trips like this will be less pleasant than it was today, but for now, I will enjoy the comfortable weather.

In related news, my motorcycle is now registered again. Yay!

Sunset and Beautiful Sky

“Sunset over Suburbia” Cedar Park, 2021

I glanced out the window and noticed the sun was making a late appearance after hiding behind an overcast sky all day. I started taking photos from my backyard, but thought I might get a better image from a wide-open area that’s not far from the house, so I hopped on my bike and headed over. I was not disappointed!

It seems like a long time since I’ve seen a nice sunset…

Here’s the short ride over to take the photo.

I hope you had a good day! またね~

New Bicycle Light for Riding after Dark

“Night Ride” Cedar Park, 2021

I’ve been enjoying evening rides lately, just cruising around in the cool night air, but my front light have a very weak beam, rated at something like 150 lumens. So I bought a new, more powerful light: the IPSXP 1000 Lumens Bike Light. I’m not sure it really puts out 1000 lumens, but it is a heck of a lot brighter than my old light (which I will keep as a backup). The extra power on the new light is great when traveling in places that don’t have street lamps, such as the bike path I went on tonight. Safer bike-riding is more fun!

“Night Ride” Cedar Park, 2021

On tonight’s ride, I explored some shopping areas that I haven’t looked at very closely just to see what kind of shops are there. Nothing really seemed to interesting, but it was fun to pass by the wine bar and burger bar and smell the delicious food. I also rode past a small pond and the frogs were out croaking away. It was really cool! I really like night riding and I am looking forward to the summer when it stays light later into the evening.

I hope you had a great day! またね~
