    Love a mid ride coke. Bet there are some nice bay views around there.

    Saw this mama gator at the park on Tuesday's ride. She and three baby gators were out cooling themselves off in the high 90s heat. The babies were about two feet long. Two were on the other side of the bridge and one was next to mom, although you can't see it in this photo.

    While riding yesterday, i came across a small flag laying beside the road.
    I picked it up & stick it into the pepper spray holder and added a small parachute to my ride to celebrate Independence Day.

    Surprisingly, i received quite a few “toot toots” from vehicles going around me.

    @rola. I rode about 100-200 yards in VA and said hi as i passed through.

    There hasn't been any biking events here as I'm sure is the same everywhere, so we all jumped at the chance of an official organized charity ride - the organization enforcing and aware of social distancing of course. A little swag, a lunch at the end that could be eaten where ever we chose outside or taken home, etc.

    This is a ride to benefit a rowing club in the area, only the second year of this event. Last year they bought an Australian boat for the club and, well, that's about all I know about it as we were more interested in the event then the rowing club, I suppose.

    This event certainly shows the beauty of this area (upstate/northern NY) and the good roads that we have, even secondary roads in many cases. I sometimes forget this.

    The route was designed to pass by multiple farms, old and new, as well as along the shoreline; hence the "Barns and Boats" name. It also passed a few local wineries - one of them had a rest stop (I believe that in addition to water there was indeed wine), and a few of the farms had rest stops, which we didn't stop at.

    We also got kind of a unique bike keychain with the charity ride's name on it as part of the swag.

    There were three distances, my wife and I and some friends and acquaintances did the middle distance route. We started out with our group - the last pic here; I'm in back in black and my wife is in back far right.

    But due to the heat and the casualness of the ride participants my wife and I found ourselves a fair amount ahead of the others, even riding slowly, so we decided to just sneak away and ride at my wife's speed.

    Along the shore are various camps, cabins, and full houses owned by both natives and "Summer People" and one of our group took the photos of the classic cars shown here, all lined up. Not sure why and circumstances.

    iPhone doesn’t do it justice. One of the best ones I’ve seen.

    That’s sweet. Is that at home or out at the lake?

    That was at home on Wednesday morning. My strava feed was full of early morning cyclists and runners taking pics of that. It was maybe the best one I’ve ever seen.
