Riding New England

This area, just off Cape Cod is such a wonderfull place to outdoor activities. Bicycle riding in particular. On a whim I can ride country roads

Or I can ride down to one of the many waterfront areas like the Whaling District of New Bedford.

Now that the fine spring and summer weather has finally arrived, biking is so much more interesting. Don't get me wrong, is always fun. Sometimes in a sick postman kind of way. You know, the rain, sleet snow kind of thing. But summer time? ahhhh, that is the absolute best.

Commuting to work daily gets me to the office early enough for a shower and some clean clothes. I also have an iron and board in the locker room. I arrive at work in various degrees of stink, but by the time I get to my desk, I'm usually the neatest, cleanest guy on the block.

There are days when I also go for a ride at lunch time. One of the spots is an abandoned asylum.

Just followed the link from Bikeforums and thought I'd say hello.

Love the photos. You're doing a great job for the local tourism authorities.

Wish I lived there. Orange County has concrete scenery compared to the natural beauty you got there. My commute is straight roads with apartments and houses the whole way.
