NBW Chariho Ride

Lots of turf farms in the Chariho area.
Another bridge closed from the flood.

This bridge was completly underwater from the flood. The water line was as far up as where I took this picture from.

This ride had a lot of climbing for only 46 miles. My legs were shot after 26 miles and I had to tough it out for the last 20 miles. Maybe the heat had something to do with it too, but I don't think so.

Easy Loop

I pushed it last night so my legs were calling for a nice easy spin today. That's just what I gave them.

Thursday Night Ride

I found another member of our group on the way back. He was lost too.

This was the first of our Thursday night rides, which always seems to end with pizza.It was a 27 mile ride so I headed out early so I would get back before dark. I ended up missing an arrow in Warren and had to reroute my way back to the start. Luckily I know the area.We had a great time afterward eating and talking.

Additional Century Photo's

The fog covered the water at times in the morning.

There must have been 40 miles of ocean views.

This is a sandy road we had to ride on after the wooden bridge.

This was our first rest stop.

There were too many good photo's,so I added this extra post.

NBW South Shore Century

It took about 34 miles before the 8:00 riders starting catching up to us.

Porta john's are always a welcome sight.

Year round beach houses.

These are the bike paths in the state park we went through.

This is my favorite century and it was John's first time doing it. When we started at 6:30 it was cool out, so we wore jackets. Mine came off at the first rest stop, about 24 miles. it was a great ride and a couple of other rides were going on too, so the roads had a lot of bikers on them.

New Deck & Grill

I had the opportunity a few weeks ago to cash in some of my credit card points and got this amazing Weber Summit S-420 grill. Of course we needed a place to put it, so I built a small extension off of Barbara's screened in porch. Can't wait to try out the grill this week.

My last ride of the week before my first century Sunday. I'm really looking forward to it, it's one of my favorites.
