Hello all, well I've been bad about keeping up with the blog, sorry! I've been doing a lot of YouTube videos as I've gotten a couple of older GoPro Camera's that I'm now using instead of my old CamPark 4K Ultra camera! The first on I bought a used GoPro 3 White version and then a friend gave me an orgianal GoPro, which I called the GoPro ZERO, LOL. The GP 3 is in very good shape and is easy to use, well except of the wi-fi remote, which I'm still figuring out how to use it!
The GP Zero, came with a "attachment", rear viewing screen and an "attachment" extra battery. Sadly, the GP ZERO, has quit working, it's stuck on photo mode and won't stop taking photo's till the battery or the 16G card is full so I'm trashing it. :( Got lucky the "attachment" rear view screen and battery pack works on the GP3!!!! :) Bad news, is that the GP 0 had a extra deep rear door on it's waterproof clear plastic case to fit both the camera and either of the attachments, it won't fit on the new GP3 waterproof clear plastic case so for now I can't use either, RATS! :(
Our YouTube Channel is the same name as our Blog: Out and About on the Recumbents, so pls. check it out to see the rides we've done in last couple of weeks, thanks!
Now for the ride we did today, We got up a 6am and were out the apartment door by 7am, walked to the storage unit and got the trikes and headed out on the bike lane on Cascade St. by 7:35am. It was actually a bit chilly, which felt great! We've had 90 F+ temps for the last few days! We headed over to pick up the Pikes Peak Greenway off of Polk St. and then north up to the trail junction with, the Cottonwood Creek Trail. We rode the CCT to Academy Blvd. and then took the sidewalk up over to Starbuck's. Since it was to early for our usual "brown bag lunch", we just at a protein bar (homemade), and drank a very large and cold unsweet green iced tea! :) We back tracked on the CCT to the PPGreenway, heading south over to the Fontanero St. Trail Head/parking area to see if they got the detour set up for the PP Greenway on the WEST side of monument valley park yet, yep, it's blocked off. The are taking out a dozen telephone poles and digging underground utilities and then will widen the current dirt/gravel trail and we HOPE lay concrete, that will hook up to Monument Valley Park/Lake Stanley, then we hope they will lay more concrete to the bridge so the whole west side trail through Monument Valley would be concrete!!!! :)
Here is some photos crossing several of the bridges along PP Greenway north and the Cottonwood Creek Trail:
