Hasbrouck Park:


"The Brickyard" with the Hudson River


Looking east, across the Hudson to the Ferncliff Forest fire tower in Rhinebeck

Kind of a two-fer this weekend - Saturday climbing Mt Diablo with Bikingshearer for a total of ~3000' of climbing and 40 miles, and Sunday a local organized metric with fellow BF'ers Markopolo, Lanceoldstrong, Midland, and Blankcrows.

Midway up Diablo, looking down:


The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly. You decide which is which, but the important thing is that we rocked the casbah in style today. From left to right - Pogliaghi, Tommasini, and Chesini:


Sucked into a pace-line behind a race team, we hung on for many miles and followed them into the lunch stop. What a ride that was - These folks knew what they were doing, and it was a real blast riding in the pocket at 20+ mph with negligible expenditure of energy:

Went on a little bimble around the neighborhood; it was a lovely bright, brisk and breezy November day.

Got to smile and wave at lots of pretty gals, a couple of them even waved back.


Like I told you, what I said...



Really nice three-story barn with an el and beautiful masonry work.



Beauty shot.



Somehow the bike doesn't look so old in this pic. I like this style of bank barn, with the doors set in.



Jealous.



Rolling hillls.

around the block

A spin around the block today, without hitting any dirt or gravel roads, and avoiding any creek crossings...


Haycock Mountain in the background.



Hardcore 1%er.



Came flying down that hill back there and went speeding through the bridge; I forgot you're supposed walk the bike across the bridge, I'm sorry.



Little crick in the holler.



Another bridge, this one's not as fancy, except for the yellow and black stripes.

I took advantage of the beautiful late fall day and just did my normal loop by the two little airports here in So Jersey. I was however suprised by seeing a bald eagle! I could not believe it, it must have only been about 50ft off the ground as it flew over a freshly plowed feild. sorry no pics. I did take this one though

I was on a group ride today with the theme of bringing your oldest bike. Mine was a 1937 Raleigh Sports Tourist:



That was the oldest one, but there was good representation from the 1940s and 1950s: a couple of Humbers, a Rudge, a MacLeans, and a '40s Schwinn Paramount (and that was the one bike that had a mechanical issue!). Group shot:



Must have been about 500 lbs of steel made up from 7 bikes.

That's a classic Humber crankset. The two Humbers also had the signature twin fork blades. Cool!

Hey, Slim. That's Frankenfield covered bridge in Bucks County. You're local.

Howdy neighbor! I love riding in Tinicum this time of year.

Took a nice 48 mile spin with Bikingshearer yesterday, in the Livermore Valley. Not too much to report, but it was a nice day to be out. I don't think it ever got warmer than 68 degrees or so..... Brrrrrrr. I hate winter.

When you get behind Rich, coasting at 20+mph is usually the result:


Sort of fall colors in the late sun of the Livermore hills:

Nothing against you BBM. In fact it would be pretty neat, simply because of the interesting locales and beautiful pictures you post. And also because of how many there are.
We need a "Where did bigbossman ride today?" thread.

"...I don't think it ever got warmer than 68 degrees or so..... Brrrrrrr. I hate winter." Winter? Are you trolling, sir? That sound you hear is the Midwestern C&V contingent attempting, however unsuccessfully, to stifle laughter and guffaws. I'm sure any of us in the Great Lakes region would be delighted to show you what a pleasure ride is like here in "winter". I realize the only ice you ever see is in your drinks, but here, winter is that season where all the water outdoors is in its solid state. That season when it hardly ever get warmer than 68 degrees is called summer.

Well.... if it's any consolation, it got down to the mid 40's last night....yeah, you heard me right - the mid 40's. Frickin' brutal..... now If you'll excuse me, I hafta go wrap my pipes so they don't freeze. And where did I put my mittens?

For the record, there's lots of snow and ice in the mountains ~3 hours east. We go there, play around in it for a while, and then come home where it's civilized.


P.S. I've caught two fish already...... this pond might be over-stocked.

Buffalo To Niagara Falls

Yesterday the weather was unusually mild for Western New York so I went out for 45 mile round-trip to Niagara Falls to take in the view. We have a bike path that hugs lake Erie and the Niagara River from downtown Buffalo right to the Falls. Getting there was the hardest part though because I had to battle the worst headwind coming in from Canada but all in all it was a good day. One funny thing that happened was when I asked another cyclist to take a pic of me by the falls he started to yell at me for abusing my paramount by taking it all the way up there and I just shrugged and told him the glass tomb was almost finished. Ended up having a few beers with our northern neighbors and headed back home. Gotta get a new saddle though...

From highway 191 to Grand View Point, near Moab, Utah. Razesa with Campy Record, circa 1982.

68 miles, 2300', 4 hrs, 4 min. 60 degrees, light south breeze. Excellent pavement, wide shoulders, negligible traffic.
