Morning ramble

This morning I spent quality time with the flagship of the fleet – the Novara Randonee. It's not the fastest bike on the road, but it will get you where you want to go – potholes be damned!


It felt good to get out and explore.

It was chilly and gray as I made my way through the Arcata Bottom.


It was quiet and peaceful. I wondered to myself why I don't take a ride like this every day.


I passed through Arcata's Windsong subdivision, which I recall writing about for the Arcata Union when the development was before the planning commission. Notice the narrow streets and off-street parking. Children could actually play in these streets and be safe.


Pathways run between the homes and only small fences are allowed. So these are the "backyards." It's an interesting concept, although it's probably not the place to live if you have a large dog.


I crossed over to the south end of Jackson Ranch Rd. and admired the wildlife as I made my way home.
