Tough one, BBM. No lasting damage it sounds like.

Big ride today, 70 miles solo from Moab up to the Neck at Island in the Sky.

Likely the last time out on the Gazelle AA, as it is going to a fellow BF member sometime next week.

Also note the jersey, which was a heads-up from the 'Amazing Deals' thread of a few days ago: Wool blend, good quality, excellent fit, $50 delivered (you have to dig back in the threads to find the extra discount code).

Wow, Jan. You consistently have the most amazing rides. Always look forward to your posts.

( PS- I am not referring to the deal on the Jersey!)

Yesterday I hooked up with Bikingshearer, a couple of Nor Cal BF members, and our very own Collin_2424 to do my first big ride since getting the aforementioned knee stitched up.

It was a perfect day to cycle - blue skies, warm temps, light breezes.

We took off from my house and made a run to the top of Calaveras, where stage 4 of the TOC went through a couple of weeks prior. It is beautiful country and there isn't much traffic to speak of. Mostly rollers with some easy (?) climbs, it is a nice 60 mile ride with about 3500' of climbing all told.

I didn't have a stellar day in the saddle, and was more than used up when we finally finished the 60 mile out-n-back. However, it was a great day to ride, with outstanding company. We had a very a good time, and along the way we schooled young Collin in the ways of lecherous old men, showing him a glimpse of what he has to look forward to in his advanced years.

I'll let it go at that, as you kind of had to be there.

A sweet little Austin Healy we came across in Sunol:


A piece of Calaveras Road:


Collin over my shoulder, riding a nice Somec he scored off of CL for chump change:

Glad you're not too damaged. And +1 for managing to save the Pogliaghi.
Good to read you can be back on a bike so soon.

That's some beautiful country you have in Moab! Great pics!!

Is that a Sebring Kit? A friend had a 100-4 back in the 70's and let me drive it out to Stinson Beach for the day. It had a collapsible
front window that a cop told me I needed to put back up. What a sweet machine.

My wife and I went there yesterday for a mixted terrain easy 20. My main goal was to test this new acquisition that proved comfortable enough with padded undershorts but somewhat slippery:



Mixted terrain was fun, ranging from packed dirt and grass and this:



to perfectly paved straights, where one can do this:



plenty of urban wildlife around. Close to 90 degrees, major water consumption, but tons of fun

Took a ~70 mile trip on the Tiara with a friend from my house in Woodbury, MN out to Scandia, MN and back. Left at 6:00a, back before 10:00a....what a morning.

Weather: GORGEOUS!!! 57 degree at the start up to 64 at the end, no wind, clear bluebird skies. One couldn't possibly ask for better weather to ride in.

Ride stats: 69.2 miles on the GPS, 3:40 ride time (3:54 clock), 18.9mph average, max speed 30.2mph, 2214 feet elevation gain.

Route: https://www.mapmyride.com/ride/united...27527737934176

The Tiara performed admirably...

Caught the Bolinas 4th of July parade last year. Kind of an old school Haight Ashbury meets Burning Man (family style).

Got my final Illinois ride in on Sunday. Did the "Ride the Drive" ride on Chicago's Lakeshore Drive. There were about 20,000 riders out there....

Took a couple of pics.





Better picture, with no chubby old fart ruining the view.

Are you still in town? I'll take you out for a beer in the not-so-tourist part of Chicago.

Had a hellish day at work and I couldn't wait to come home and jump on my bike. I rode from Kingston, over the Rhinecliff Bridge, over into Dutchess County, ending up at Burger Hill in Rhinebeck. It was so relaxing to just listen to the crickets and the birds...I practically fell asleep at the top.

What bike is that, YoKev?

Took the Merckx out in the late afternoon heat. Had to ride clear to 6500' for some cooler air.

Heh-heh. I was out there a couple of summers ago for my daughter's wedding up in Napa and had to show my adult children all the places I'd lived in the area--up on the mesa in Bolinas, Inverness, Lagunitas--and was amused and delighted to see that the state still can't manage to keep a road sign up at the turnoff into Bolinas off Highway 1.

That's my Woodrup Giro. It's a nice ride

I was just out in your neck of the woods a few weeks ago. I've got pictures posted a few pages back. It was great to be in such an "active" town, and the scenery took my breath away.

Yep, did the MOAB brand trails, Porcupine, Dead Horse Point, Sovereign Trails, Slick Rock, Monitor & Merrimac, and a couple of others that are escaping me.

Porcupine Rim gave the biggest thrill and giggle factor, but I really loved the Sovereign trails.

I will definitely look you up when I come back out

73 degrees + light-moderate wind + low traffic = bliss.

It has been two to three weeks since my last ride, but I finally got a bit of a break in the weather and life. This was a simple 27 mile out and back ride, but it really reminded me of how much I missed the cornfields of Illinois during my stint in Georgia. With farmhouses, fields as far as the eye can see,virtually no hills, and small town churches, what isn't there to love? Of course, this may be partially due to the farmboy in me.








Excuse the darkness of the last picture. I'm not sure what setting I had the camera in.

While this may not seem as scenic as some of those shown, I look forward to getting out to see more. BTW, Jan's pictures show an entirely different perspective of Utah than what I had in my mind. Beautiful.

^^nice cornfields! I like to ride through them as well. This is from Monday:



And, I got out on a cruise with my '51 Rudge tonight. That's the Hudson River in the background.

On this rainy Sunday, I went out for my weekly americano and muffin. Mmmmm, the coffee place is right beside the best Mexican restaurant in town



Saddled back up, and rode over to the point to watch the Hudson for a few minutes.





And then, I found some turtle eggs!



Then home, just in time to miss the next deluge.
