    We did the 50 mile Transition Tri Loco Ride on Sunday and it was absolutely lovely. Great course, exceptionally well-marked and Feed Zone french toast muffins at each rest stop.

    I didn't work nearly as hard as the two tandem pilots.

    While many were commuting on the congested trails and roads on DC/VA/MD, I was riding on Skyline Drive, where I saw three groups of cyclists going in the other (generally downward) direction.

    Cooled off in this waterfall, but it was short-lived since it was about 1 mile into about 8 miles of brutality. I think there was a little descent in there somewhere, but it's mostly up from 211 to Skyland.

    Seems like it should be more. I guess it isn't.

    Storms ahead.

    Only 50-some miles because thunderstorms cropped up around Big Meadows. Had a car there anyway just in case, but was bummed to not get the mostly downhill to Route 33 and the resulting gran fondo. Still poached the descent back from Dickey's Ridge to Front Royal.

    Now need to get back and ride from Big Meadows to I-64.

    And a bike pic or two just for evidence that a bike was actually involved.

    I could show you my Strava link. I don't think cars can go that slowly.

    I really need to log off the internet and go for a ride.

    I went out on a dock next to the one the ship was at - (left) view of the sails; (right) sense of scale from people aboard the ship

    (left) view from the end of the adjacent dock; (right) a lady saw me about to take a selfie and offered to take this pic, but sadly she didn't angle it correctly and the top of the shot was cut by the roof of the gazebo-like structure (I appreciated the effort)

    Photo from my most recent ride. About 11 pm, nearly a Midnight Saddles ride.

    Note the bear spray in the water bottle cage. Might have some utility in the WashDC area, particularly with respect to cab drivers.
