    Took my bike on an 8 mile spin along Glade Creek in southern WV yesterday. Hard to believe people kayak this stream. X-T1 + Tokina 17mm/3.5

    Looks a great place to scoot around......seems very quiet, not many people there. Like the tones in these shots.

    Thanks Pete. It is a very peaceful spot, and is very remote. However, the campground at the mouth of the creek is very popular in good weather. I've been on the trail and never encountered a soul, but Saturday I saw two other bikers and 10 hikers. It was still peaceful, and the sound of the rushing water is very nice.

    Thanks Bart. I built my bike from parts I sourced from different vendors. I could have bought a turn-key one, but I wanted the experience of knowing how a bike works inside and out. I knew very little about bike mechanics when I started the project. It's amazing just how many pieces go into the making of a bike, and how they have to fit in certain ways. I learned a lot in the process.
