Took a break from my recent frenetic ebaying today to ride out to Great Falls along the Potomac. I rode this bike (cheesy cell phone pic):
This is a nice forty mile jaunt from my home, at least the way I go. It finally cleared up today, the past few days have been misty and threatening, which tends to keep me closer to home on the bike. The miles just roll off the Fuji America and with 25c tires, the pace is fairly brisk.
I've been pretty happy with the 25c Pasela Panaracers on this bike. They are even fairly serviceable off road so long as things don't get too ugly.
This is Wide Water, an area of the C&O canal just downstream of Great Falls:
It never ceases to amaze me that there are scenes like this just outside (and sometimes inside) the Washington DC Beltway.
