    Thanks Brent. There are tons of abandon mills in New England. Most of them died out in the 1950s and 1960s. A lot of manufacturing went down south at this time, and later went overseas. The heyday for mills in New England was 19th century and early 20th.

    As for that building, maybe a dairy farm? Livestock on the bottom floor, storage up top. I didn't get close enough to get a good look. I just thought it looked visually stimulating. It does have those two rusted silos attached and this area is very rural. Zoning is nonexistent here. It could be a lot of things. There was a pale colored house right next to that shell that I cut out of the shot. I assumed it was the owner's house. I thought if you lived there how do you keep your kids from exploring that dangerous old building?

    Rode up to my hometown to see my mother before she moves 7 hours away. I thought it would be cool to take some pics of the kestrel at the dam since I don't have any of it after finally getting it on the road.

    Saturday San Francisco Randonneurs Populaire part 2:

    First stop at Point Reyes Station (34 mile point). Got a receipt (and Bear Claw pastry) at the Bovine Bakery:


    Second stop at Nicasio (44 miles). Answering name of ballfield was an information control question for the trip.


    Street Fair going on in San Anselmo today (55 mile point). The route sheet led right to a street blocked off for booths, face painting, carnival rides, and rock climbing. Walked bike about 6 blocks and happy to get going again on other side!


    My 1997 Ron Cooper back again at Bicycle Odyssey in Sausalito (66 mile point):


    The owner is a long term Ron Cooper fan, and sold Ron's bikes for years in Bay area. Several frames are hanging in store:


    Back at Marin side of Golden Gate Bridge (69 miles):

    Bridge and boaters at entrance to San Francisco Bay


    Back at Crissy Field for a final picnic and pack up at end of ride (73 miles, 115K):

    Wow. Lotta' nice bikes and ride pics today!

    We managed our usual 32mi run in familiar territory. Today started cool enough and ended in the lower 90's with dew points in the upper 60's, very oppressive. Our humble pictorial offering, of a requisite stop of course:

    I rode the Chelan Century on Saturday in perfect weather conditions.

    This year I brought the Merckx.

    I rode the entire day with a very fast ride partner. He's a Cannonball and S2S veteran.


    I ran into an acquaintance I met in Chelan a few years ago when I saw him riding a beautiful old Appel. I posted a photo of that bike in the "Spotted in the wild' thread a while ago. He was riding another old bike this year - check it out:

    On the last leg of the ride we climb over the beautiful Navarre Canyon. Legs a bit wobbly after hours of fast riding we ease back a bit. It was a perfect way to finish off the day. A long climb up, fast descent down to the lake and a short ride back to our starting point where a cold beer awaited us.

    I will add to this week's wealth of California Photos. Apparently DMNHCA and I did similar rides but in opposite directions.
    I started my day with a 15-mile ride from my home in Lagunitas to the Larkspur ferry terminal. My bike snuggled up with an older Gary Fisher Mtn. bike on the ferry and was joined by a Cannondale of significantly fewer years.




    The ferry terminal in San Francisco is also home of San Francisco's Saturday Farmer's Market.








    I made my way through downtown and out to Golden Gate Park, reliving old memories from 35 years ago when I used to commute by bicycle along this same route on my old Schwinn Hollywood.

    Hall of Flowers




    In one of the Parks many small meadows I came across the "Bicycle Music Festival!" The performer in the background is amplified by electricity produced by the line of pedalers on the left. In a few hours they were going to break down the whole affair and pedal it across town for another concert in the evening.




    The next unusual demonstration of pedal power was provided by the pedal-boaters on Stow Lake.




    Did you know that San Francisco has windmills?




    The Palace of the Legion of Honor.




    After my tour of the city i headed back across the Golden Gate Bridge, and pedaled home.



    57 miles ridden, all on pavement.
    1 boat ride.
    2,300' of climbing.

    Indeed a nice collection of pics, all.

    I have no pics to offer today, just a bit of smug self-satisfaction. I rode my commute on the '73 Raleigh Gran Sport, 13 miles from train station to work, 14 miles back to the station (a slightly different route home). Today was predicted to be hot and humid, dew points near 70 for the ride home. In fact the temp was about 80 when I boarded the train at 8:10AM and about 90 and very humid for the ride home. You could say today's ride required commitment. I actually left work early to catch an earlier train than normal and to avoid possible t-storms, but that meant higher temps. About half an hour before I left the office I crammed as much ice as I could into my water bottle, filled it with cold water, and stuck it in the office kitchen freezer. It stayed cold most of the ride, was still cool when I reached the station. Small victories!

    I've been reading a book titled Cycling - Philosophy For Everyone, a series of essays and stories by different people. It's heavy going sometimes, will never be made into a major motion picture, but it is generally engaging. Right now I'm wading through a particular essay titled Bicycling and the Simple Life by Russell Arben Fox. He argues that reverting to a simpler life (i.e. going more natural, or even "off the grid") is not always so simple. It sometimes requires complex decisions and indeed sacrifices. There is a win if you do it right, but it doesn't come free and isn't always obvious. Of course his claim in this context is that more cycling for transportation is one key way to go simpler. It does require decisions and commitment.

    Today's commute was a real-life example. I saved 60 miles of driving today, saved no money when you count the cost of parking and train ticket, did my body good with all the exercise, and gave myself permission to be insufferably smug!
