Fall is definitely here. The days are shorter, the nights are cooler. That doesn't mean, however, that my cycling season is over. By adding an extra layer or two and maybe tracking down the full length gloves, fall biking can be some of the best of the year. I especially love the golden light and long shadows which seem to dominate the September landscape. I got in about 50 miles yesterday. To get the most of the fall experience, I started at 7:00 am, before the mercury had climbed above 34 degrees. The sun was only out for a few minutes but it was beautiful, pure autumn light. Within a couple of minutes of me taking this picture, the clouds took over and it became cloudy and blustery.
