Summer 2015 Photo Album

So how has your summer been so far? Mine has been great, and very busy. Here are some of the cycling highlights.
In May some friends of mine and I participated in the Five Boro Bike Tour in New York City. Approximately 30,000 cyclists participate in this annual ride which takes participants along a 40 mile course through all five boroughs on roads and freeways which are closed to auto traffic for the day.







New York City!

We made a couple side-trips on the way to New York City, including Pittsburgh, and the abandoned section of the Pennsylvania Turnpike near Breezewood, Pennsylvania.


Earlier this month some friends of mine took a 36-mile bike trip from Marine City, Michigan into Canada and down to Harsens Island, Michigan. Click here for the MapMyRide route.

Here we are on the ferry that transports cars, cyclists and even 18-wheelers across the St. Clair River from Michigan to Ontario, Canada.

Shepard Fairey, the artist famous for Barack Obama’s “Hope” poster created several new murals in Detroit this Summer.

Gross Ile Bridge
Critical Mass Detroit made a side-trip to the Dorais Velodrome on our July ride. The track had been abandoned for years but it is now being revitalized by area cyclist volunteers.

This is one of my favorite spots in Detroit. I like to stop here after group bike rides and before sunsets. This photo was taken right after I bought my 80’s Peugeot Monaco on Craig’s List. Right after I took this shot a young woman described the bike as “an 80’s power ballad, if a power ballad could be a bike. I think that was a compliment. I love the bike, and it has become my favorite.

You know that no photo album of mine would be complete without pics from my regular bike rides around Baltimore’s Inner Harbor. I still can’t get enough of Baltimore!

About kevinmckague

I left my former dead-end job in 2006 in order to become a truck driver. I wanted a career that was recession-proof, and that offered more opportunity for adventure. Now I travel the country with my bike in the passenger seat, and look for new places to visit whenever the opportunity presents itself.
