Flathead Lake bike ride

My friend and I rode up the west side of Flathead Lake in Montana on Saturday. I used my old French Stella bike that I used to ride back and forth from Missoula to Flathead all of those years ago. It still works like it used to although modern bikes are a lot easier to ride distance on. Feast your eyeballs on this picture of me as you won't see a lot of pics of me on bicyclelog. Gosh, I really should ride more.. Just look at that road!

Here's a picture of my cycling friend Salvatore. He did most of the work while I sat on his wheel as we rode into a strong head wind. Thank you for the nice pulls Sammy!

The view of Flathead Lake from our destination was pretty nice to say the very least.

It looks like it was the perfect day for a beautiful ride. I'm glad you got to do that. I'm feasting, all right... but it's not at the road. ;)

It does look like the perfect day but that head wind and the debris on the shoulder made it kind of a brutal little ride. There was a lot of traffic too even though the pics don't show it.

I guess the reward of this ride was the finish.

It does look like a great day for a ride. The view is spectacular (and I'm not just talking about the lake. You and Sammy look pretty amazing too.)

Thank you Vixey! Sammy is much better looking than I am.. :)
