No EASY ride from Oldsmar to The Pier...LOTS of busy roads between. Pinellas is trying to become more bike friendly, but connections between paths and lanes are weak at best. The North/South Pinellas trail is pretty good, but just getting to it his a trek! We get out on our C & V as often as we can. If I'm riding solo, I often take my 2000 Felt, but when out with my son, I take the Vintage iron, either my 79 LeTour or 88 Bridgestone, JUST to make it fair, since he is on the 86 Team Fuji. Can't have him whining about me being faster JUST because I'm on a newer bike! ;-)
If you get over here again, give me a shout out, a joint C & V ride would be fun! There is always the Bayshore ride over in Tampa, but often so crowded with walkers, joggers, and dogs, it would NOT be fun to ride on. Just love it when dog owners with LONG leashes block entire trails and scowl at you for DARING to try to get past them!
pizza: roasted red peppers, mushrooms and blue cheese.
^ Well done! Nice carmelization on those peppers and shrooms.
Here's some French titanium goodness I cleaned up this weekend. Everything pictured weighs less than 14 ounces and dates to 1977.
Hate it when gears go bad! No rest for the wicked!
she has her own helmet now, but over the weekend my 1.5 year old daughter took her very first bike ride. it was on the back of my stump jumper.
i think she enjoyed it
quick pic riding around town...
Cold cold ride, but got to work in one piece.
Ignore my reflection :)
It is a lovely day today in Toronto
Ah, the difference a week makes. Two photos, same spot, one major difference. One week ago:
Yep, it's that wonderful whitewater. It was a little high last week, bankfull today. I need to run this river after a good rain. There's some 2-3 foot standing waves downstream from the bridge, and a nice chain of rapids above it. Not a huge technical challenge, but a blast to run. Once it warms up a bit more, it's off to the James to dial in my roll again.

A cool sundial in Eastern Washington.
