An absolutely stunning day! I rode 70 miles, lazily, taking a lot of long breaks, just to watch the day go by.

November to March is perfect, almost every day. That was my first longish ride in over a month, so was more special. Let me know when you're coming down.

I had the day off today, so in between getting my hair cut and some christmas errands I was able to get a 33 mile ride in on the Cinellli.

It was warm at about 48 degrees and foggy with some drizzle.



confluence of two streams





I haven't ridden the Cinelli in a few months, man it rides nice! I need to treat it to a new pair of tires.

I got a flat about 10 miles in out in Scituate and picked out a big chunk of glass. I was glad I wasn't on the De Rosa I would have wrecked my tubular for sure. A cop stopped and asked me if I was ok while I was fixing the flat which I thought was pretty cool.

It's been kind of rainy over the last week or so, but it was a beautiful day today so I left work early to put in about 30 miles on my drop-bar mtb.

Beautiful December day in Tennesse today. I took advantage of an unseasonably warm day and cranked in a bit over 32 miles on the old Fuji. That may not seem like a lot for some of you, but my previous longest ride was 21 miles. I've only been road biking for about 4 months now and my conditioning has really improved. I'm down 30 lbs since then and am feeling great and really prowd of myself. This loop was something I'd been pushing myself toward since I started. Here is the ride from my cell.

R88, nicely done!

Well, this isn't the Pacific coast nor even Tennessee, but it's what I've got. I did get to ride yesterday over lunch, about 45 minutes on the Blackstone Bikeway. Cold, windy, cloudy. Nice. A few pics. First some ducks and atmosphere:



And this little guy, an eastern ribbon snake. I've seen larger ones in about the same place. He was probably wondering what happened to the sun:



Today I got in about 35 miles, closer to home.

mainstreetexile thanks so much for posting these beautiful pics of OB and Sunset Cliffs. I lived on Sunset Cliffs Blvd. just a few blocks north of your vantage point for a couple of years way back when.

I took the new ride out for its shakedown spin. 36 km. I had high expectations for the ride quality, but those expectations were exceeded.

I did one of my common day-off rides into the city, in this case a 30 miler on my rehabbed Raleigh DL-1. Stopped at the bake shop



for a small snack



A quick stop at the downtown Christmas tree



On the way back, noticed the new food park is open





And by then, it was lunch time.

I'm actually getting through the holiday season reasonably flat (weight wise). Riding just enough to exercise off all those holiday treats.

Nothing to see, just taking the 79 KIA roadbike that I've been refurbishing for a friend out on a road test to the LBS for a couple spokes for my FELT....always need some little bit here or there, only broke ONE spoke....but when ONE breaks....(this one had corrosion IN the nipple....weird!) Saw a FIBERFIX, string emergency spoke there....anyone ever try one of those? Crazy!

Is that the park at the end of that rails to trails path (felix...?) that starts in Mansaquan? I was on that this summer when the family was vacationing in Lavalette. Surprisingly cool area (the spur up to the area with the athletic fields was the highlight).

When I was at the park, I met a very very cool older gentleman who was a volunteer at the railroad museum there. He had a custom serrotta and something else in the back of his honda fit sized car. He went on to tell me he picked up a european racing bike when he was in europe for the war. He also mentioned his 1938 paramount track bike. The next day he was leading a group ride with the... new jersey wheelmen maybe? Anyone know who I'm talking about? I've been trying to reconnect with him, but the internet is only so useful for things like this.

If I'm back down there next summer, which is pretty unlikely considering the state of the rental houses, I'll be sure to hang out with that guy, seems like a true C&V nut- just as C&V himself as his rides.
