IT AIN'T OVER YET...

I heard them though I could barely see them hidden in the trees. It was the gathering, an all too common sound of autumn. It sounded like a Hitchcock movie but this time the birds were gathering, not to wreak havoc, but to discuss their plans – plans for a trip south. They tweeted out, “Riding season is coming to an end.” And I yelled back… BUT IT AIN’T OVER YET…
Just to catch you up to speed … September has zipped by but…
I took a little ride to ‘The County’ via the long way ‘round.
  Attended yet another festival (Chili) in the City.
And met BMW Triumphant (only a blogger to blogger meet up could get me, suffering from my ‘man cold,’ out of my cave on such a windy day) for a little 200 km ride through the home place.
  IT AIN’T OVER YET!

    1. Weather that you could see was great ... what you might not be able to see were the unpredictable gusts of up to 60k per hour. Surprisingly it didn't seem cold.

  4. Get every riding moment you can.....I say that after having skipped some this summer.

    Having recently discovered the "Game of Thrones" HBO series, I say to you: "Winter is Coming". :)

    1. Oh no, you were sucked into the vortex of a series ... never fear, I'm going to ride on. This weekend, our Thanksgiving weekend is looking very, almost summerish, promising.

  5. Good for you, Karen! Carpe diem. The bike will be back in the shed way too soon. Glad you could meet with Ed. Another B-to-B meeting. We should give out badges ;-)

  6. Why is it I can clearly picture you shouting at the birds like that?

    I am glad you have had some sunny weather and were able to get out and meet with Mr. BMW himself.

    That bench/bridge photo is my favorite.

    1. Ha, ha ... you do know me Trobairitz! (Crazy woman who stand beside road, yelling at birds.) I was glad Ed had the chance to come back this way and take a tour - too bad we picked the windiest day of the fall, but happy that the sun was shining.

  7. Thanks for the fine tour, Karen. I had a good ride home on Sunday. It was overcast nearer to Toronto, but never as cold as it was on Friday.

    Must try the roads out your way again. There was some nice country there.

    1. The sun was beautiful, the wind a bit strong and the heated gear kept me perfectly comfortable. Can't imagine life without it!

  9. I do think everyone who lives where winter steals away our ability to ride was cheering along with you. We've had an unseasonably warm start to October, which makes my denial syndrome worse, but more believable (at least in my head) I fear the, "Reality Crash" I know is coming will be a bigger surprise than last year........

    I hope you get many more days in before it really is, "over."

  10. Don, all I can say is it has been a beautiful fall (so uncharacteristic, but I'm not complaining!) I know it's coming ... but did you have to say it out loud?
