Left - my Citizen Tokyo.
Right - the girlfriend's Citizen Miami.

After a week so far, I'm loving it, although her Miami suits my 6'0 195 lb frame a bit better. I just love the style and compactness of the 16".

I refer to them as "big" or "larger" wheeled bikes because that's what they are. ;)

I believe that is the southern most island of the Hebrides? I can imagine it must be beautiful and peaceful there. I bet it was a bit on the cool side. Love to see more photos.

Hebrides Geography: Outer is North, Inner is South, * I took a ferry From Ardrossan and went from one Island to another of that Group,
Arran, Kintyre & Islay,

then landed again in Oban .. Oban is the Ferry terminal to go Northwest to the outer Hebrides ..

*all relative to London of course ..

Great place, my first time on that island, though I did see Castlebay from the deck on a prior Uist-Oban ferry voyage.
I'm sure I will return some other year and extend the journey up through the Uist's then on to Harris and Lewis.
I was really lucky with the weather - I wore a tee shirt and a wind-shell during the days.

It will take me couple weeks to go through the images, post process and write some thing up ; then I will post a travel blog post of the journey.

I'm looking forward to that Donald. Its good that you had nice weather. Nothing worst than peddling through rain and cold. I hope that you get an opportunity to continue and finish the journey.

Not really in the wild but a pic taken of my Mu Uno folded-up with just rear & front Knog Blinder 1 lights lighting up the scene. Taken on my iPhone.

Park bike repair stand. You really are prepared.

I'm surprised they allow riders to bring their bikes on the bus like that. Usually they want them folded or placed on an appropriate, provided, rack.

Nah, it's not the bus, it's the L (train).

Still Pedaling 05-30-14 08:06 AM

We have a light rail transit system, and they insist that the bikes are placed on provided bike racks in each car, or folded down.

Now that makes sense. You had me worried. I thought you were prone to disaster while on your rides :bike2: :)

I think it was John Lennon who said something like "Life happens while you're making plans for something else" - or words to that effect.

It has been over six months since I've been able to ride my bike. My wife has been receiving treatment for breast cancer, her mother has dementia and we have been on hand to look after grandchildren too. Another one was born today (Sat 31st May) - a boy named Albie. How did I get to be a granddad to four youngsters - I don't remember getting old! My work schedule has been very erratic too so my Xootr Swift has been left idle since November - until today!

Only a short 17 miles around local lanes in warm sunshine but my legs and nether regions certainly feel like it was a much longer ride!. Took a few photo's just to prove I did it.

First let me say that I wish your wife well. I hope she fully recovers from this horrible disease.

I don't remember getting old either. Time just flew by. I wish I had my youthful legs back though. I start off good, but it doesn't take long before I run out of gas. At least I can ride longer and farther than I could a year ago.
