Saturday's 36 mile club ride out of Moorpark, CA, Autumn in SoCal, almost 90° at the end. Pumpkins at Underwood Family Farm, a look at the Simi Valley Bike Trail, and my old Peugeot. Nice ride even if it is too hot for Autumn.

Picked up this Cannondale for $40. Paint is in rough shape. I Gave it a thief resitant drippy spray job to see how it rode. The answer is: amazing! Ill be taking it all apart and giving it a proper paint job sometime this winter.

Not really "classic bike" pictures, but we certainly have been enjoying the fall colors here.

just ignore the low speed on the 'puter....

Great photos, especially that last one.
What is the metal box next to your fork?

The aluminum box is the home made dynamo headlight. Nothing too fancy, but it does use a supercap and a boost converter to provide a fairly bright standlight with a 10 minute run time. Very nice to have.

Here's a shot showing the side view.....




this is what's inside.....
The green thing is the supercapacitor where the energy for the standlight is stored. It's fifty times the size that I've seen in commercial dynamo lights with a standlight.
The standlight is enabled with a magnetic reed switch. This permits implementation of a switch without providing a path for water ingress. Fun stuff!



This is the sort of thing you get when you've got a bike nerd who bike commutes and is an electrical engineer.

Managed to get in a pleasant evening ride yesterday and took a few photos. Thought they might be good enough to share...

first, a photo of harvest season. Not only are corn (on the left) and beans (on the right) are being harvested, but wind energy is also being harvested (in the background). The wind turbines are sited in fields, bringing in some extra cash to the farmers that own the land.




by coincidence, it's also the time for the harvest moon.



I could lie to you and tell you that this train was hauling grain.... but it was hauling containerized goods. Probably stuff that came into the ports at Long Beach or L.A. a few days ago, and was headed to Chicago or beyond. Considering that I only had one shot at getting the exposure right, I thought it turned out okay.




Steve in Peoria, having fun with bikes and cameras

Lovely! Definitely doesn't look like the photo was taken in Peoria.
Might have been Starved Rock or something like that, though.

It seems like we skipped the best part of autumn in New England -- at least on the CT coast. Nor'easter tomorrow. A few weeks of dry mid-60s weather sure would be nice.

A ride last weekend:











@Buellster - nice C'dale!!

Highway 33 north of Ojai, CA. 3000' climb in 16 miles, fun downhill going back down. Not much fall color yet, but still seeing fire damage from almost a year ago.

Got the old Raleigh out on a library run this morning, and found this scarecrow along White Oak Ave. This is about as autumn as LA gets.

nice photos! Cool bike too... love the black lugs on the purple (lavender? I can never tell) tubes!

The fall colors seem to be peaking here in central Illinois. I went out for a ride this morning, hitting the tree covered hills along the Illinois river bluffs. Just beautiful, and possibly short lived. We are expecting winds of 20 to 40mph this afternoon, and I don't expect a lot of the leaves to survive!
Just got back from the ride and photos are being edited at this time. I must have seen a few dozen other folks on the same roads taking pics of the leaves.
