44 miles this morning on the Gitane. Sunny, nice and cool at 65-75 degrees.

Sanford-Knight lot cemetery on Laten Knight Rd Cranston



This an ancillary branch of the family that started Fruit of the Loom in RI during the mid 19th century. These Knights were just rich farmers/landowners.

Pine grove



Town Hall Foster Center



I rode a little bit on dirt today.

Then back through Central Park



Before heading home down the West Side Highway and Brooklyn Bridge. Great weather for it, partly cloudy and in the 70s. i love having days off!

This was one of my last climbs of the day. Just rode on up into the light.... Lousy cell phone picture (not sure about the red blob). Typical of early fall climbs on bright days after work around here. Glad I had my wraparounds on.

Thumbs Thumbs Thumbs!!! When I first got into group riding and trying to race I remember Robert (Bob) Beal telling a bunch of us neophytes to always hook your thumbs around the bar or the brake hood. Somehow I seem to have managed to get in that habit most of the time.

Today I actually made time and forced myself to go out for a ride for the first time in weeks. After a brief 15-18 miler (no watch, computer, GPS) I was returning home. Going around the block to cool off I was reaching up to unzip my jersey.... and wouldn't you know I hit the only large rock (or maybe walnut) on the road! It was quite jarring but since my other hand was firmly wrapped around the brifter nothing awful happened.

Overall my short little ride was great!

^ Glad no mishap resulted! I'm also a bit rusty from many weeks off the bike. Too hot and too consumed with legal matters. But I'm going to venture out like you did tonight! There is a break in the heat, and I'm a "free man" again.

This is the best of advices.
If you hit even a ripple in the path, it is enough to throw you off.
Thumbs hooked around the bar is good practice, giving the rider control.


You always have to give up 'something else' to make time to ride for an hour.

The result is that you Feel so much better afterwards.
You breath better, your legs are stronger, your heart is stronger, you stand up straighter.
You appreciate your bike better, too.

We out ran a storm today 12 miles- full out; one monster climb and two crazy 40+mph descents. Hit the garage just as skies opened and the heavens let loose. Most fun I've had in years! Riding too fast for pictures but I'll post this one nabbed off the web for effect

No riding today or yesterday but the day before that we rode Acadia NP's park Loop Road, two laps, about 19mi each. The second is always harder!

Overlooking Otter Cliffs. Somewhere down there is an ocean.


The weather is starting to clear!


Both of us.

I rode all over the place, but retraced my route several times. Never far from home, but ended up with 50 miles for the day. The first time I did that fixed gear and my first 50 miler this year.



The bike isn't C&V; it's a 2009 model. But it's old school- chro-mo, quill stem, etc. The art is on a bridge that opened up this year. There's a motor bridge above, and slung underneath is a bike/pedestrian bridge.

Despite logging 4k miles thus far this year, I haven't contributed much to this thread (but read it at work almost daily). Here is photo from one of my favorite routes. I have posted from that route before, but decided today to do it on the other Trek. Triple crank, half step using friction shifters. Works out nicely in this case. Now if all those spokes would slice through crosswinds a little easier...

Looks like it is along the Mississippi, maybe Red Wing?

Say, should we fit in a c&v ride still this fall?

Great time of the year for a Saturday or Sunday group ride.

I'd be happy to host.

Saturdays are best, and great idea. Fall color, classy bikes, good company, what's not to like? How many locals do you think we could muster?

Yes, along the Mississippi. Went from my place through Prescott to near Red Wing. Then up O and a couple scenic roads to River Falls, then to Hudson and home.

It would be fun maybe to do a "pie run" from Prescott to Stockholm, but 35 might not be ideal for group riding.

I think we could pull a good dozen out of the woodwork.

I'll pm you this afternoon after our ride and toss some ideas around.

Lots of great ride reports and pics here!

Yesterday I rode Acadia's Park Loop Road twice, about 19 miles and 1200ft of climbing each loop, with a ride up Cadillac Mt. in between. My sweetie hiked up and snapped this pic as we were having lunch at the top.



More pics and a ride report will have to wait a few days.

Same, I drove up Cadillac Mountain in July and walked around the summit trail with my dog. Next time I'll take a bike.
