Out riding today for about 60mi - Temps in the low 60's...
Enjoyed a nice leisurely ride - Unwinding by winding up the bike is great...

Another fine April day for riding, so I rode the surrounding area and visited Gettysburg.

This is the monument to the 13th New York Independent Battery, consisting of four 3" Ordnance Rifles, located along Howard Ave.

Patented in 1861 and produced in 1862 by the Phoenix Iron Company in their foundry at Phoenixville, PA, these guns were popular in the Civil War for their accuracy with a range of up to one mile.

Out riding today - Enjoyed about 150 mile ride thru the countryside.

I saw this
Huge Old Sycamore Tree


And I also saw someone broke out their classic car
like this:
1963 Avanti by Studebaker

Forgot what a great looking car the Avanti was, only ever seen 3 despite many years of going to car shows.Stilla bit chilly here & sholder rotator cuff & elbow pains have prevented me from a long ride for the past few days

Sorry to hear about the shoulder - That can be painful...

The Avanti always makes me think of James Bond, although I don't think they ever used one in those movies...

Yes, it is!
I've been getting some windshield time lately also.
Nowhere to go but just glad to be going.
Enjoying the pics.

Well - Maybe this is why I associated the Avanti with James Bond...

Another great day for riding - I was spending the day twisting & turning, up the mountain and down into the valley - riding with my brother and my friend Matt.


We rode 200 miles today with one of our stops being at the now-closed East Broad Top Railroad.


On our way home, we stopped at Newville and stretched our legs at the old Laughlin Mill (circa 1763).

I was out riding today - 60 miles - But the rain got me before I got back home...

This is the Mud Run Bridge - It has an interesting history...
