I love riding on dry dirt underneath blue skies and sun. However, if I’m completely honest, I might just love riding through rural Michigan in the heavy, damp fog even more.
Saturday brought the first snow storm of the year to central Michigan. Visibility was such that I didn’t feel all that safe braving the roads on my bike, so I headed down to my bike shop to pick up some new winter gloves for a potential ride on Sunday. I had heard that there was a group ride being organized at the Alma Grand Prix of Cyclocross race course, so I figured after I picked up my gloves I’d head over to the course with the Fuji X-T10 for some photo.
Due to some insane wind and rain, this week has not been the best for riding and shooting. However, I still managed to get a few shots that I dig in. No, they’re not pro-level shots, given that they were taken by someone not a pro, but they are shots I like.
During my Tuesday dirt road ride I rode past yet another dirt road barn/garage that appears to have gone up in flames. It’s always sad to see so much damage and property loss. The only good thing about the two incidents is–from what I can tell–there was no loss of human or livestock life, to the nearby homes.
