Indoor Biking, anyone?

It's officially 'winter' here in NY. We had 5 inches of snow last week! Unfortunately, between the mess from the snow and the fact that it is dark outside before I get out of work, I would normally be done mountain biking for the season. BUT... I've just discovered a wonderful new toy!

I've made my bike into a transformer! The "trainer" I got attaches to the back wheel and basically converts my regular outdoor mountain bike into an indoor stationary bike.

It's working out pretty well so far. The fact that I can actually *exercise* while sitting in front of the tv at night makes it much easier to get my winter workouts in. Cheers to indoor biking! ;)

Here's a shot of the cords that attach the little computer to my bike so I can measure time and distance. I just thought this was a neat perspective!

Gothic Spire

I love this spire.

I used to drive by it every day on the way to work. It just rises right up over the trees, and it looks particularly impressive on cloudy days.

A Cardinal at the park

I chased him around quite a bit before I got this shot!

It's a male cardinal I saw at Crandall Park.

Sunset over the airport

I was fortunate to have my camera with me when I saw this beautiful sunset!

Mallard ducks

Some mallard ducks. The ones with the green heads are the males, and the brown ones are the females.

We saw these while sneaking in what will probably be our last mountain biking expedition of the year on Sunday.

A few flowers from late summer:

a blue morning glory (one of my favorites!)

a colorful zinnia

and finally, some anemone, not to be confused with the sea creature ;)
