I don't have any pics, and I'm probably GLAD I don't but went out for 20 on the Touring Series Thursday night and the *&%#$^*& NDS crank arm loosened again about 6 miles from home. Forgot the cell phone and the wife was busy anyway so I walked up hills and coasted down. Shifted down to the 50/13 so that I could get as much oomph out of it for the half crank I got out of it on the DS when starting.
Took a tad longer than I was planning for that 6 miles :notamused:
What The Raleigh and I did today. Must rideblog it tomorrow...
Watched some racing at the Velodrome.

The organizer I talked to (hey, everyone likes The Raleigh) said if it hadn't been a race day, I could have run The Raleigh around the track. Uh... not sure about that. But I'm going to take the wee boy there next Friday to watch the big races, as he's decided he's going to do the Tour when he's grown-up. Guess we'd better start that blood-doping now...
And, let's see... I rode in a dress for the first time. No really. I felt like such a girly-girl dork. Lay in the grass and worked on using the manual settings for my camera, which I've just "discovered." This one makes me look a bit like I'm dying, but I look like I'm going to die happy.

Picture of my bench yesterday morning after finishing a quick rehab to a Roadmaster Cape Cod 3spd.
My dog doing her normal Bad Dog stuff yesterday, caught with my phone.
Stopped by the body shop to check on my Bronco yesterday afternoon, I had to give the manager a ear full since it's been there 7 weeks and it is looked like this for 4 weeks now with no change.
I drove 450km's each way to pickup this very rare Ricardo Pinnacle "my dream cycle"
This is a half hour after picking it up to camp along the Murray river for a night, needs a bit of work but its worth it I'm a very patriotic South Aussie and its made in South Aussie. :D
@Gelnnfordx4: I your dog looks like a lot of fun, good looking hound you have there! And your Bronco! Hats off to you sir
Hauling home a plant stand this morning that someone foolishly decided to throw away. I mean, at least take it over to the local thrift and donate it lol

So one day the Atlantic Ocean decided it needed to express itself by drawing a picture of a tree....
Here's a recent shot of my kids after taking them on our weekly grocery shopping routine. We stopped at a playground for a break on the way home. We load up the trailer with our groceries, and on this trip I think we had about five or six full bags in the trailer, as well as stuffed panniers. I keep a styrofoam cooler in the trailer for frozen items, it works very well and allows us to take our time getting home. The five year old rides the Burly trailercycle behind her mom, and the six year old rides the slightly modified Bike Friday tandem with me:
^ The cutest little cyclists! I love the one on the right inspecting the tandem. She's thinking, "I wonder if I should change these bars. Hmm."
The Trek 510 patiently waiting it's trip to the Seattle area for a C&V ride tomorrow.
My bike shed this morning:
20T cog and new chain installed. (Let the Tweedery begin!)
I tweaked the derailleur hanger on my Gios yesterday, so I disassembled the bike and took the frame into the LBS for service this morning. The components will get a cleaning, and the frame, once returned, will get touched-up and waxed before getting back on the road this weekend.
