    Perhaps...or chourico and peppers...or pork in piri piri...mmm. This reminds me that I have to place a mailorder for some Gaspar's...just used my last pound for chourico and peppers for my son's school's b-day party last week.

    I'll be home in August...may have to check out the Roo Bar place if we head to Plymouth...

    Nope, but this is my last weekend in this office! There'll be a lot of riding and wrenching for me very soon to make up for lost time. Expect a fury of posts!

    ^ Hah! Thanks, CJL. I was feeling sorta youthful yesterday as my riding partner, Bob, is 65. But as I tried to keep up with him riding through the rough stuff (where's he's like a dang billy boat on two wheels), I was geezering.

    I could have used some of that warmth, as it was 46 at our start, but increasingly colder throughout the day.

    Took a nice ride yesterday... pancake breakfast up at the church, then rode downtown for the Main Street Art Fest.









    About 24 miles round trip on my Raleigh DL-1 3-speed.
    I stop for people / whose right of way I honor / but not for no one.

    Great ride report, Neal. I used to visit my childhood friend and his Portuguese wife in Fall River occasionally, when I was still in Boston. Lovely parts of MA down there.

    Happy Belated Birthday to you and John!
    A great way to celebrate it.

    You know, I read this, only scrolled up one post, and saw the candid of Doohickie.


    Then I went back a few more and saw MaggieMaggies. I think I connected the dots correctly

    You can just call me Maggie. That username was already taken, though

    Yeah, I saw the same thing. I was wondering if I should respond with some coy answer.

    We spent a great deal of time noodling around in Fall River/Freetown State Forest, where the best roads looked like this:


    But most of them looked like this:

    Neal[/QUOTE]

    that sounds like a great ride! I really miss the cycling up there. we used to ride along the coast to Plymouth and then back up inland. once in awhile we would go down to Carver to the BerryPatch for breakfast.

    the first MTB race (well the only one) I ever did was in Freetown state forest.

    Yes, the trail I was pointing to leads back to maggiemaggie.



    Getting back on topic, ...

    I rode to work again, today. I really enjoy the bike I built last summer - 8 speed Alfine IGH, Specialized Stumpjumper frame, Brooks sprung saddle, fat tires,... It's really fun (and comfortable) to ride, even if it is just to work and back. The only thing I want to change is to get a slightly more erect posture, so I'll replace the flat mountain bike bars it currently has with something that sweeps up and to the rear a bit.

    I took advantage of nice weather to ride to Sauvie Island again, this time with a proper camera:

    I got a nice 30ish mile ride in on my late 70's Woodrup today. Kingston to Stone Ridge to Ashokan to Lomontville to Hurley to Home.

    The destination of the ride is usually the Ashokan Reservoir, and today was no exception. According to Wikipedia, At full capacity, the reservoir can hold 122.9 billion gallons (465.2 million m³) of water, has a 255-square-mile (408 km²) drainage basin, and is over 180 feet (54.9 m) deep at its deepest point, making it (New York) city's deepest reservoir.

    "New York City turned to the Catskills for water in the early 20th century after discovering a group of speculators calling itself the Ramapo Water Company had bought up riparian rights to many water sources further south in Rockland, Orange and Ulster counties. The Catskills were more desirable as state-owned Forest Preserve land in the region could not, under the state constitution, be sold to any other party. A recent amendment to that section of the state constitution also allowed up to 3% of the total Forest Preserve land to be flooded for reservoirs.
    Residents of the area to be flooded did not take kindly to the idea, and fought eminent domain proceedings bitterly. They were aided by local lawyers familiar with the checkered history of Catskill land claims. It would be 1940 until the last were settled.

    Local opponents of the reservoir also cast doubt on its soundness, saying it could never hold enough water (it would be the largest reservoir in the world at the time), but when it was filled from 1912 to 1914, they were silenced. It covered several communities located in a valley where farming, logging, and quarrying prevailed. Approximately one thousand residents along with roads, homes, shops, farms, churches, and mills were either moved or abandoned, but most of them were torn down. Several of these communities were re-established in nearby locations. 12.45 miles (20 km) of a local railroad line (the Ulster and Delaware Railroad) was moved and cemeteries were relocated."

    Looking west towards the high peaks of the Catskills.


    One of the resident bald eagles at the nest. Mega digital zoom catches it pretty good.


    On the trail, looking at the high peaks and the bridge between the upper and lower basins.


    Back in Kingston, almost home. Kingston was the first capital of New York. It was burned by the British in 1777. The capital then moved a few miles down the road to Hurley, NY, and then eventually north to Albany. This is the only intersection in the United States with 18th century stone houses on all four corners, therefore officially named the "Oldest Street Corner in America"


    And some street art.
