Not even remotely bike related, but it was a good day anyhow!
My bike is cooler than me.
Having a flat tire as part of the total cycling experience is highly overrated. Knowing how to fix one quickly is not.

Life is is too short to care what others think of your bike.
Tonight I was experimenting with HOK Marine Blue as touch-up paint for Gios Blue:
Said good-bye to this little lady on Saturday:
Hayes Carll with Ponderosa on the river tonight. This was the first time I'd seen Ponderosa. They sounded great. Great guitar and organ tones.
Hayes Carll was good, but obviously road worn. Didn't matter, though. His songs are great and his band was killer.
My LBS owner rode along with me.
This is my real C&V project as it sits today... Needs time and lots of money, neither of which I have currently. Maybe when I'm done grad school I can dive into this, for now bikes are cheaper and require much less space to work on.

took this right after my basic try to get used to the heat ride today.
here are some pics from the route I do a lot. A thirty mile loop with as much elevation drop and gain as I can find. rode the three speed today cause "training" for a century in a couple weeks.
I'm cheating a bit, but here is a pic of my Somec hanging from a tree
I love these photo threads. Keep them coming. This is what feeds C&V. And, it means I have something interesting to review, and don't have to read drew threads.
I vote that the tablet is a lost portion of the Epic of Gilgamesh. In which case, I'm tremendously excited. But, having read a lot about the Babylonians, I suspect it's a shopping list or an inventory.
Didn't take this one today, but uploaded it from the camera today. Does that count? Raleigh Sports.

And one more from the same ride: the wee Boy with a bat-house and some daisies at Soos Creek.
