“There is beauty in silence and there is silence in beauty and you can find both in a bicycle.” Mehmet Murat ildan
Something amazing happens when the leaves change, the air gets crisp and sweater weather feels so nice after a hot summer. Before we roll into bike winter, let's embrace autumn and post our pictures (and stories if you have them) on this thread. Happy riding!

Looks like a beautiful day! I really love DPRT.
I like your self portrait.
Thanks for generating this thread help to celebrate the Autumn bicycling experience.
Thanks! Fall is my favorite time of the year.
Taken after the Medaryville, IN Crane Cruise last week
Some of the 10,000 Sandhill Cranes that pass through Medaryville during their fall migration. The cranes return nightly to the Jasper-Pulaski Fish and Wildlife Refuge after feeding in area farm fields during the day. The Medaryville area is home to the largest concentration of Sandhills east of the Mississippi river. They're big birds, standing about 3 1/2 feet tall with a 7 ft wingspan.
Hardly quiet, as they come in they announce their arrival with very loud calls.
Check the" Loud rattle calls from huge flock" on that last link to get an idea of what the flock sounds like.
I love seeing and hearing cranes flying over my neighborhood in spring and fall.
Breathtaking photograph. Thanks for sharing.
