Fall colors 2

Beautiful Indian Summer days we've had this week. Rode the mtb to work yesterday and it was fun. Lots of acorns and buckeyes on the roads makes for tricky descents. Just ask the guy that fell coming down the parkway from Ridge rd. I was going up and see alight coming down slowly and all of the sudden I see the light go horizontal. He was fine but walked the bike the rest of the way down. On my way home hit the local trail for my last 3 miles before heading home with lights blazing and some juice left in my legs. you can ride a trail hundreds of times during the day but hit it when is dark and it is a totally different experience. Great way to finish a 4:45hrs day.

NY city visit

A couple of weeks ago my wife and I took a short trip to Connecticut and drove and took the train down to NY city to visit the 911 Memorial, Rockefeller ctr. etc, etc, etc ...
We went to a Broadway show to watch "War Horse". We had watch the documentary of how it came to be a Broadway show and it was amazing. Our friend was able to find tickets at half the price thanks to a program through the NY city public schools. Great show.
We ate a couple of neighborhood places where we drank "mimosas" and had a great brunch. Walked the old neighborhood where my wife grew up and went to school. It brought a lot of memories.
Lots of people and I mean lots riding bikes all over the place and I'm not talking messengers only.
On our way back we went north west and made a one night stop to visit the NY side of the Falls. Not the same as the Canadian side, but amazing nevertheless.

Typical NY city sight. Broken bikes chained every where. I saw quite a few bikes with yellow tags on them for the city workers to remove and throw away.
