Pics of where I ride
 
This thread will be of where I ride and at different times where I am riding at certain points.

Nothing like having a camera with you while on the bike. It gives a few moments of rest and helps others see the beauty that I get to take in while riding.

I will start the pics in the next thread.

Awesome idea, Mac!

RoaringMad Mac 04-30-2009 10:01 AM

Parts of my normal Ride.
 
Where the water tower is in one of these pics is my normal route. This tower is about only 2 miles from my house.

Of course my House which some of you have seen.

onetiredkris 04-30-2009 11:34 AM

yeah mac you live in a beautiful area. beautiful and hilly! i bet it makes for some killer riding, i bet the air quality alone is amazing.

BigFiveFive 04-30-2009 01:13 PM

Nice crib yo!

RoaringMad Mac 04-30-2009 01:38 PM

Yeah, the air quality is much better out there. We are about 20 miles northeast of Birmingham where it gets really hilly.

On the week-ends I want to find more places to ride with more scenery to show you guys.

Thanks for the compliments on my house I will take more pics when I get some more stuff done in the backyard.

Hopefully by the time Rick and Fed come for matts show I will have the patio built with the fire pit for sitting around at night by the pool to drink some beer by.

LOL, that one picture of my house was actually taken a week or so ago so Lisa could design something for the front yard. A flower bed of sorts up close to the walk and down by the rocks. Those freaking rocks are a bitch to mow and weed all the time. We want to do some sort of landscaping to help get rid of most of the hard mowing in the front yard. I don't mind grass but that hill my friends is no picnic to mow. That is why I throw it in as a day of cardio.

jwood819 04-30-2009 09:06 PM

Wow mac, that is a beautiful house in a great area, I am jealous. If you dont mind me asking, what do you do for a living? Feel free to ignore this question if not appropriate.

RoaringMad Mac 04-30-2009 10:26 PM

No big deal.

I am a collection Manager for our Family business. I also do the accounts payable for our business. We are a buying group in the Office product business.

Before this I was a Police Officer for about 15 years.

naug44 05-01-2009 05:58 AM

Those are some nice shots. I am with Fed as far as being jealous. Being from CT, don’t see much open land like that. Way to much traffic around here to try and ride safely. Looking foreword to seeing some more pics.

RoaringMad Mac 05-01-2009 08:04 AM

I'll have some up when I get to work.

RoaringMad Mac 05-01-2009 09:42 AM

Honeysuclkle Ride.
 
This pics are along the same route I ride every morning just more pics of some of the hills. They don't look so challenging from here. but believe me they are.

I made friends finally with this dog that I took pictures of.

Don't let traffic try to hold you down if you really want to ride, I've gone on rides threw Downtown LA straight threw Hollywood (koreatown you really have to be on your toes haha) and ending up at Santa Monica Beach seeing some real HELL traffic on the way. The key is really to ride in the street with the cars, first of all because its illegal to ride on the sidewalk , second of all if your obstructing traffic everyone can see you real well. They will probably honk and yell some -ish while driving by but its all gravy.

RoaringMad Mac 05-01-2009 12:43 PM

yeah, actually riding in traffic is safer than riding on the sidewalk. Good call Kris.

BigFiveFive 05-01-2009 09:31 PM

That dogs got some beef, american bulldog?

This is true mac. I ride the road at all times. With traffic.... In PA its a share the road policy...

Good story here. I was scootin through town one day and this guy yells from this car "Move over asshole!" he in turn gets the red light as I creep up on him I yell at the top of my lungs in his ear through the car window ''NO!" and scoot before he reailzed what happened. Scared the shit outa him... LOL funny Bikers 1 Cars 0 LOL
