Googled Alpine,CA. I bet this is "prime time" for riding down there.

Thanks for the pics OFG, the ground is still covered in snow here. Have not been on a bike in almost 2 weeks.
Looks like a nice ride!

Luckily it is going to be up in the 60's next week, unfortunately my scenery still does not rival yours.

I have a 4yr old and 1 1/2yr old to chase around the house, that keeps me pretty warm. Seeing pics of friends on sunny rides are nice too!

Lookin' good OFG. I really like the architecture of that area and the aesthetic of the natural features. Thanks for posting those pics.

It's hit and miss, actually. The weather here is erratic. We get it all but, as noted before, it can snow 6" one night with temps in the teens, and be 70 degrees with clear skies and dry ground by 4:00pm the next day. I'm not making this up.

The average ride out here has about 600 feet of gain every 10 miles. So, it presents a challenge, but it sure is nice to have so much selection. Especially, with such great views!

Short jaunt out on the Gazelle A-Frame after far too many months without riding it. Finally got the Nuovo Record brakes & levers dialed in, the old brake pads scuffed up a tad to improve the braking a smidge, and actually rather enjoyed the ride. Which of course causes a bit of a quandary since I have been collecting up parts to rebuild it with my Cyclone bits. Perhaps I can find room for one more bike around here somewhere. Snapped a few photos of the bike before/after the ride, but none on the road since it was rather windy and while the weather is rather warm I didn't ride past anything of any real interest.

Very nice looking trails,OFG.

Is that all hard packed dirt? Some of the trail looks pretty soft.

Beautiful spell of weather the last two weeks in California. I recently replaced a broken Campagnolo rear axle on my 1988 Bianchi Super Leggera. Cleaned and repacked the hub, then took a test ride of about 35 miles, ending near the main quadrangle of Stanford University.


Italian bike meets Spanish Mission style arcades of the inner quad.


Italian bike near Italian mosaic tile work of Memorial Church (by Maurizio Camerino).


Bianchi and the Burghers of Calais (Rodin sculpture garden).


One day after this ride to Stanford, I flew out to the East Coast for a short visit.
Here is what I found bicycles looking like on the main quadrangle of Yale's Old Campus in New Haven, CT.


I've lived in the midwest, the east coast, and the west coast. Enjoyed them all, but it's great to be back in California!

I rode to work and back. It was Valentine's Day, so traffic in the evening on the way home was light. I really enjoy my bike rides home so much more than driving.

The bike is running like a top and the lights are great. Pretty soon, I'll be able to forego the lights, as we are over the hump and headed towards daylight savings time and summer.

If it's one of mine, let me know and I can send you a larger version.
I still haven't really figured out the the bikeforums picture system. I use the board's attachment system, and my pictures always show up as little thumbnails that need to be clicked to be viewed.

Rode my after work 10-mile Downtown loop. Downtown is pretty at night--I managed to get two photos before the battery died. I'll remember to charge it next time.

I don't know if this is a classic or even vintage, but my Schwinn 974 (1991, I think) was just the thing to bomb around the hills on today, Since I just got it sort of together last night.

Rest stop at one of the springs in Eureka Springs AR.

I planned on attempting a century today, but I had a couple of problems along the way. I managed to make it a 53 mile ride, heading north towards Arlington. I should have given the Rossin a shake down run before taking it on a full ride.. It was a beautiful day here, but cool(upper 30s-low 40s)



Stopped at the local airport on my way home, and saw this cool old plane.

Finally took my winter project out before the blizzard we're supposed to get tomorrow(2/20). The weather was in the 40's the past two weeks so the roads were totally clear so I felt safe about taking it out and not having to do much cleaning afterwards. It wasn't a big ride since I'm just getting over a cold and it was about 20 degrees with a decent breeze. I don't have much for winter riding gear so I just layered up and it was a bit brisk to say the least. lol. This is a first for a lot of things with this ride. First decent C&V build, riding with friction shifters and tubulars. It's a '73 Raleigh Comp. I thought I was going to have a "Christmas Story" scene drinking from my stainless water bottle and get my lip stuck to it. Well I'll quite yapping so here's a few photos.

We set records for snowfall in the month of February, then we broke a record high one day this week. 2 feet of snow to nothing in less than a week.

We have another 12" or so inches of snow headed our way over the next two days.

Rode today though.

Outdoors instead of the Greg Lemond spinner at the Y!!!

23 miles.

For BBQ.
