Ready to Say Goodbye

I’m selling Rossa, my Bianchi mountain bike. We’re trying to lessen the things we own and I think having three bicycle is too much. I can probably just keep Piplup, but I can’t bear to part with Sophie. However, Rossa is one that I don’t really ride often so I have put it up for sale. Hopefully she will find a good home!

Water on the Trail

“Wet Ride” Cedar Park, 2022

I went for a ride on the local hike & bike trail, but had to turn back just a little ways in because last night’s heavy rains had caused a bit of flooding. I started riding in the water, but decided it wasn’t a good idea and turned back. Oh well. It was actually kind of fun!

If you check the video, you can skip ahead to about 15:15 to see the flooded trail.

Oh GoPro

“Handlebar POV” Cedar Park, 2022

I went for a bicycle ride with Rossa this evening and, as usual, had my GoPro recording so I could make a YouTube video. I was stoked because there were so many birds singing on the ride, and there was a beautiful deer in the middle of the road as I a rode by. It was so cool!

But unfortunately, my GoPro had shut off long before and there was no footage. My first thought that it overheated, but it’s never done that after only 10 minutes of recording, and plus the settings I was using weren’t anything more demanding on the processor than normal. Also, in the times when it overheats, it will beep as a warning before shutting down. This time, I didn’t hear any beeps. I can only guess that the GoPro just glitched and shut off.

Anyways, extreme disappointment! But it was still nice to get out and ride. Two wheeled travel is the best. 😀

Long Ride with Rossa

Today I went on a long (for me) ride with Rossa, my Bianchi Alante bike. It was really windy, but still a lot of fun. Actually, the wind was good because I saw some people flying kites at the park which is always neat to see. Kites are so cool.

If you’d like to ride along with us, I made a video (as I do with most of my bicycle rides). Please take a look if you have time!
