I cannot  believe I have forgotten to post these pictures from my Saturday ride.  Guess that what happens when you have a tax deadline at work and are busy wrapping up projects for clients.

Well Saturday was a beautiful day and there is a Windmill Farm about 22 miles from our house.  I have always wanted to ride to them but just never put it together until Saturday.

Over The Hill & Through The Valley
There is a flatter option which would have included more traffic flow until I got outside of East Aurora or a hillier option which is basically no traffic so that is the way I went.  I believe I rode flat ground on the way to the windmills for about 10-20 minutes max.  They were not brutal hills, but a hill is a hill is a hill.

Getting Closer
You can see the windmills from the road I live on but once you drop down off the hills the windmills disappear until you get with 5 miles.

Green Energy
When I arrived I pulled into the companies parking lot, took some photos, ate some energy, and enjoyed the scenery.  I really need a good camera instead of using my cell phone camera because there were some awesome valley views from my perch atop Windmill Alley!

Great ride back home and I have even done some commuting again this week.  Fall is definitely in the air but I love this time of year!

Have a great day and go ride your bike (or run) (or swim) (or hike) (or play with your kids)!!!!

I forget things too, but I'm old. :-)

Good biking fun, pick a destination and ride away.
