On Sunday I went for a scooter ride down some back roads not far from where I live. I was gone about 2 hours and I traveled about 30 miles. I took my time, stopped frequently, took a few photos, and explored a bit.
Here are two views of the East Fork of the Little Miami River, looking up and downstream:
This river follows the route and goes into the village of Batavia, my ultimate destination for this ride. My journey carried me into a broad valley where I traveled this back road:
This property appears to have an old church on it, a leftover from years ago. Though I was tempted to check it out, I decided not to trespass:
Here was a nice place to rest. There is a stream over this fence line and I could hear the sounds of a bubbling brook. It was nice:
I came to an area that only a few years ago was open farmland. Now it is a condo complex. Actually it was quite beautiful there and I enjoyed riding around and exploring. This is only one of about 3 lakes in the development:
Mama Goose got a little testy when I peeked through the reeds at her brood:
I rode into a local village and explored a bit, but I will save those photos for another day.
I headed back along the back road in the valley and up the ridge to my area of the county.
It was a nice, peaceful ride with few cars. I did see a few motorcycles, no scooters.
Exchanged the "biker wave" with all of them!
The Met performed well and really needed to blow out her carb and get on the back roads and so did I! We had a great time just scootin' along!
