Fall bike rides in Ohio

Fall is one of my favorite seasons in Ohio, but it doesn't last long.  When we do get a gorgeous day, we take advantage by doing what we call a "leaf ride".  Enjoy...

Wow! That red bush is.....ON FIRE!

Its my favorite season too.

Is that a llama? There were two of those being lead around by some guy on the Lake Placid bike course on race day. Totally random but it was a nice pick up on that horrible climb.

I love fall leaves, looks like a beautiful ride. I was so sad to hear about all the animals that were set free from the reserve and lost their lives there in Ohio. Hope you and your family are safe!

I love, love, love fall runs/rides! I just wish the pretty leaves stayed around a bit longer.

There are a few alpaca farms along some of my routes, but I've never seen them as close to the fence as the llama - jealous! :)

I do love spring and fall rides here

Beth said...

Beautiful!

Kim said...

so gorgeous! makes me almost want to go for a ride... almost ;)

Molly said...

so pretty! I took some photos of the outside of my house, I feel like if we get one really windy, rainy day, the leaves will be gone & fall will be over!

Aimee said...

Those pictures are so beautiful!

Ms. Duffy said...

That looks so nice! I can't wait for real fall... we've just had a lot of rain and few actual changing leaves cause it's been so freakishly warm here. Love the llama hanging out right by the fence, too!

Caroline said...

it is still in the high 90s...booo hoo

Matthew Smith said...

You're right about fall...it doesn't last long. Jenn and I took a "leaf tour" a couple weeks ago. It was awesome! I'm glad you got to go!

Christi said...

What a great leaf ride! You certainly do have some great view to look at during the fall.

Caratunk Girl said...

Awesome! I love leaf rides!!! BUT I haven't been on my bike since July. Is that bad?

Steve said...

Leaf ride looks awesome. :)

Ben said...

This really looks nice. Makes me miss ohio. in NC our animals are not nearly so exotic.

Chris said...

Awesome!! Those roads look nice and flat too, I'll order some of them up for around here!! I do love riding in the fall, the only bummer is the season that comes next!

Jason said...

I'm not reading the comments but how many reference Napolean Dynomite and Tina?

And I'm just slightly jealous of the pics you, Kevin and Matty have been posting of all the fall colors. If you ever want pics of sh*t brown and bright green let me know b/c that is what we have.

Looks like a sweet ride!

Heidi Austin, PT, DPT said...

beautiful... i miss those fall rides for sure. we don't have those down here ;( and the alpaca ride i used to do up in pennsyvlania too...

Ironman By Thirty said...

Love the pictures! Those red bushes (burning bushes???) are my favorite.

Glad you got out to get a leaf ride in before the weather turned to crap (or at least it did here)

Sara said...

Beautiful! Love the pictures! I definitely need to do some bike riding in your part of OH!

Carolina John said...

That is beautiful country to ride through. I love getting out on leaf rides, October is certainly my favorite time to get out there and get those slow enjoyable miles in.

Figured you'd have snow there by now (-:

Alisa said...

So glad you're able to get out there and take advantage of the short fall season. It's that way here too. We usually get a few days where the leaves are pretty and the sun is out and then we all hibernate for the 10 months of rain. =)

nuttin wrong wit dat!

maggie said...

Absolutely gorgeous scenery! It must be wonderful to bike off the beaten path. And that's not even counting the llamas!!
