    I'll give you a pass if you reduce and recycle every plastic bottle from here on out :)

    When people care about end of life cycle recyclability, I guess.
    Steel (or aluminum bike) strip the tires, throw in the metal bin at the dump and it gets turned back into steel. Of course I'm...

    OP back here again. The bike I saw being at a Walmart in between two of the poorest cities in Massachusetts, was probably not disguised, or urban camp - but maybe it was. I remember that a friend of...
  4. Ever see an "unknowingly" vintage commuting bike?

    I went into Walmart the other day and in the lot chained to a pole was a dirty beat-up lugged frame Raleigh "10-speed" . What really caught my eye, were the bar end shifters at the end of the...

    I venture I did at least 30 miles, possibly much more, with a broken rear spoke - unknowingly. I was riding my old (Circa 1984) 32Lb touring bike complete with front and rear racks, on a gravel...

    My 1st day out after the worse cold I ever had and coughing for 2 weeks (actually 1st time this year period). Missed 3 days of work this week. I rode pretty slow and need 3 rest stops, but I did...

    I would just set a route as a series of different loops. So if after 80, 100, or 120, or 140 miles you have had enough, you can simply return home.

    But it sounds like you have a point to point...

    Long overdue update. I sold them both to a friend for what I paid for them. He put them in working condition and brought them to Maine on a group trip we were on. I believe I set the speed record...

    Yeah, you can ride from Mass into RI, over the Sakonnet River Bridge new bike path, over the narrow Mt Hope Bridge, into Bristol and pickup the bike path right into Providence. Then it's finding the...

    If you are going through on a weekday. With adequate notice, I could pick you up at the start on the Newport one and drop you off at the end of the Jamestown one on the mainland (in a bike friendly...

    You cannot bike from the Jamestown side, bikes are not allowed on the Jamestown-Verrazzano or Newport Bridges. You have to hitch or use the bus with racks - which don't run on Sundays. see...

    I was thinking I have only camped, but then it hit me, in New Zealand, I stayed only in Hostels. Not possible in the US, but there I could reach one every night. Since I was touring solo, it was...

    I should add riding into Newport is not recommended, there is basically no safe way to do it. I commute there every day (by car) and every so often I try to come up with a route that works for a...

    That's pretty good advice above. If you want to start and leave a car in SouthEast, Mass, you can do so at my house. I am in Dartmouth MA, and you can take a high speed ferry from New Bedford to MV...

    I don't really recall a bike boom per se, in 75-77, at age 15-17, I rode my Schwinn Continental (40 lbs for the large frame) on the back roads in the next town, logging 40 miles days with friends. ...

    I have the Rubel's maps for all of Mass.; there are some holes in it though, but overall pretty good. I first rode over the Sagamore bridge some 39 years ago, but yeah it's "interesting" to say...

    Wrapped up the "Cape Cod Solstice Tour" on a sunny beautiful weekend. We made it as far as one can to Race Point on a road/bike path.

    I have a hard time with my feet getting cold. I had to stop and use toe warmers. After moving them to the bottom of my foot at the coffee shop, I was toasty warm on the way home.
