The last bit of a excellent October Fall riding before the gloom and doom of Halloween!

 Well we got really lucky for October, it turned out to be a excellent "Indian Summer" kinda month which is just awesome. Oct. 2020 was cold and wet so we really got out and tried to get in as much riding as we can! I've got over 200 miles of rides for the month, been a while since I've seen that number of miles in a month! I know for a lot of you that's no biggie but for us it's a real feat! We are just recreational/utility riders, we can't afford to own a car anymore so we use a bicycle/trike and a home built utility trailer to get our food, necessities, etc. 

 It's been so nice mellow temps, lot's of sunshine but as usual it has ended right close to Halloween! :( From the sunny 70 F's to the cloudy and gray 40 F's in one day, SAD! :( 

We have 3 seasons here in Colorado Springs, Winter, Spring, Summer and "CONSTRUCTION", LOL! ;) At the moment there is construction going on at 4 of the major E/W or N/S urban/rail trails in our area so are rides are now a combo of trail, bike lanes, back streets and yes even sidewalks in some places (No one actually WALKS on the side walks on Academy Blvd. anyway!), so any ride you take this time of year is always a bit of a "changes of plans" ride! We got in rides on both Friday the 29th. and Saturday the 30th. so we ended the month on the recumbents, even had to put new front tires on Jo's trike as she's got in over 1200 miles so far, even with a couple of multi-day stays in the hospital for heart or diabetes problems!! :( I've passed 1500 miles for the year might make 1600 by the end of December but with winter coming in, we NEVER know! Here's a couple of photos from the last two rides, hope your getting in the miles and your area winter is mellow!

NOTE: Sadly we can no longer afford fast speed internet so there is not going to be anymore Relive or other video's on our Blog! :( Unless I can find a FREE source that has fast enough speed to upload them from the laptop to You Tube or Relive, sorry, it's just the way it has to be, thanks! BJ and Jo :)
