Saturday, from Carroll, OH is the COP Fall HOOT ride, beginning at 8:00am from the high school. Distances of 30 and 72 miles. If it is the same route that Grand Poobah created, you will be amazed at how you can ride 72 miles around that area and have few steep climbs but a very good route. $5 for COP members, $10 for non members. I regret not posting this sooner.

...a couple of weeks ago he was doing the same in far different circumstances in France. Speaking of weather....
....there has been a tropical low spinning southwest of here and for 4 consecutive days, its been pushing moisture into the area and with it rain. Not area wide and not everywhere but every day cells like the above have dropped precip, canceling one hike and one ride. In fact...
.....I have seen more rainbows this week then all of my other visits combined. Kind of a weak one above but have seen a few double rainbows and many single ones.
Friday, my wife wanted to go for a hike so we visited Sabino Canyon, walking along the tram road until we hit a trail that took us higher to the Phoneline trail and a return with a modest 4 miles. Big hike Saturday though.
