This morning's 10 mile, shake off the stiff legs, ride. Warm, muggy and quite breezy, it is supposed to drop 20 degrees tomorrow DOWN into the 60's for highs! :-O
1988 Bridgestone 550 Sport (those pedals have GOT to go, but I broke my pedal wrench trying to get the first one off...CURSE the mechanic who slacked on the grease!!!)

This was a lunch-time ride across a local college that's actually recognized as an arboretum. There's lots of paths that zig-zag through the trees, and college coeds mincing about.

Great spot to eat a sandwich before returning to the grind.

Been snapping some pics at my job lately

Drying out after a soaking rain ride to work last night: the Banjo Bros. Commuter bag kept my stuff bone dry


Got some new 2012 editions of glass:

Today I sold :


And as partial payment I accepted this in trade :



If I had slept in and had my wife handle the transaction I would have thought the bike didnt sell and instead SHRUNK.

Also, later I may smoke some chicken on the Big Green Egg in the background... Mmm...

Something different

Years in planning, three months execution from start-to-finish, I came home from the Seattle Bike Expo this afternoon to my new yard.

Before:



During:



After:



And yes - I specced the height of the retaining wall so that I could take pics of my bikes in front of it

Ha ha - actually, that was a nice touch but somewhat of accident; I took the pic after I'd downloaded the bikes and removed the car rack. The bikes were in the process of being cleaned since I subjected them to 5 hours driving time to/from the Expo and it pretty much rained the whole way on both legs.

warning: non drive side pic. our beater '84 Stumpy set up for family fun with kid seat and wald front basket. My son and I rode for about 5 hours around Los Gatos, Campbell, and San Jose proper on Saturday. Lots of riding, lots of stopping at parks.





with a stop at a Carl's Jr (first time for both of us though I had a salad )





He's only 2 years old (3 in July) but I'm starting to think about doing a short self supported tour with him soon. I think it's definitely doable with a trailer where he can sleep, though he's been known to sleep on the back on my xtracycle too.

so far he's good for 5-6 hours a day as long as we take stops here and there, which we'd be doing on tour anyway.

I think it's time for a weekend test run soon.

My dad took me on a 10 km camping trip as soon as I had my first proper bike, a 24 inch atb. It felt like I conquered a continent. Great memories.

A candid shot of me taken by BF member Yo Spiff on last night's pub crawl ride. The Raleigh in the foreground is my latest project. I turned a sport-tourer into a cruiser with big cruiser bars, a sprung Brooks B66 and a Sturmey-Archer 2-speed kick shift hub.
