I went on a 16 mile ride today and my neck actually felt better today. I felt like I wasn't getting enough power from my legs so I raised the seat just a tad and for whatever reason I felt better. I decided to take a new route and I went through this area where it had a nice creek and waterfall, I had to stop and take a picture of it. It was a nice, scenic route, with a bunch of farms, and most importantly very little traffic. It's funny when I ride by farms, horses rarely ever stare at me, when I try to get their attention, they don't care but cows do. I went by a farm and every single cow, around 20 of them stared at me.
