No idea why I decided to carry it up there but I am sure I lost a kilo or two doing it..
What happened to your pedals? Are they a quick release type?

How did I miss this post until now? I'm a sucker for churches and graveyards so the next time I revisit Scotland I'll need to check this church out.

Badmother can confirm this, but if I'm not mistaken, based on the little red clip that you can see at the hole where the pedals go, he appears to have Wellgo QRD pedals. See the file pic below for reference:

Rocky Mountain Wildness

Having a fantastic summer riding trails in the mountains of Colorado! Just crossed the 10,000 mile mark with my customized 2008 Jetstream XP. Below are a few pics and links to three new write-ups I've posted recently. Enjoy!

Len-a-whee!: Getting high (>12,000 ft) for the first time of the season in Colorado.











Copper Highness: Rollin' all of the Colorado Trail between Copper Mountain, Searle Pass, Kokomo Pass, Camp Hale, Tennessee Pass, and Wurts Ditch Road.









Up Among the Clouds: Got so high, I touched the sky! Monarch Crest to Starvation Creek with some interesting weather thrown in just for fun.

SHE has got quick release pedals yes, and love them!! Especially like on this trip when we used the bikes as a luggagetrolley quite a lot. If you want to wheel the bike innside buildings and trough areas that are crowded with peopel you do not want pedals that rip peopels ancles and scratch doorframes.

In that case I have some pictures for you from the most beautiful graveyard I have ever visited. Just hope the pictures are describing it like it really was (is)..

Wonderful time yes, but hot (I am not really used to this type of heat) and then there is the hare that was slayed by a motorbike just 20 mtrs in front of us..

Great place, Il`l go again. Plenty pix but no time to post them plus my internetconnection is still giving problems so being on the net is really a lot of work..

Dare I ask what the temperature was? A few years ago I was in Dunkeld Scotland speaking to an elderly woman when she paused mid-sentence and apologized for being out of sorts and seeming flustered. She said that the heat was getting to her... it was 20ºC (68ºF). I had to chuckle to myself because I had left home a few days prior where the temps were 36ºC during the day and nights didn't get below 23ºC.

Cool pix, smallwheeler. Where were these taken? Also, that's one smooth BF... when was it made? (I'm so glad that "Friday" was chosen for the name instead of "Monday".)

visiting my mom in the foothills of the smokey's, bass.

yeah... if the name was Bike Monday you would have said, "that's one smooth BM" and i would say, "yeah, i had a blast with my BM today." and some guy would start a thread saying, "How can i improve the performance of my BM?" or, "What can i do to make my BM lighter and faster?" and invariably, some wiseass will answer, "have you considered adding more fiber to you diet?" etc...


its a mid-ninties model. i'm considering upgrades.

I knew you wouldn't disappoint.


I figured it was either a 90s or a "clydesdale" model.

You know, us fragile elderly women.. Maybe she had her own pesonal "heatwawes" to deal with on top of the 20*C?
We had somewhere between 30*C and 35*C. That is enough for me. After a night of rain I was hoping for a cooler temp but we only got hot and humid...
(Now where the f... did you find that small o you used for the *C??)

...
When a guy my age says "elderly", "ancient" is implied.
This woman was decades beyond Dr Moreau experiments (men of paws).

Wow, I didn't think it got that hot in Denmark.

My 1972 Raleigh Twenty on a recent vacation in Hilton Head Island SC. It's a great bike friendly vacation spot with bike trails all over the island.

A few from my first loaded trip on my new to me Speed TR. I just went a few miles up a local cycle path http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tarka_Trail and camped one night and then came back the next day. A short trip but I just wanted to see how the bike handled with panniers on and I was very pleased. It handled the load pretty well.

There are several benches of this style along the path.


A signpost that was funded by The Royal Bank of Scotland as part of a millennium project. RBS had to be bailed out in the credit crunch.


A very pretty river valley and old bridge that you can't really see in the photo because the health and safety barrier is in the way.


Looking back up the river Torridge inland.


Looking down to the estuary.
