Tower Bridge?! Are you a West Sac commuter? My buddy's shop is about a quarter mile from there.

50 miles on the Tanglefoot Trail today. Plenty of sunshine, low 80's temp.

Out with the retired guys for a coffee ride. Nice view back to Diablo.

It's been hanging on a hook for about 20 years so it was time to give it some love and some exercise. A friend and I are entering the "1986-and-earlier" vintage category on our vintage Lobsters at the "Keyesville Classic Mountain Bike Stage Race" next weekend. Keyesville Classic Mountain Bike Stage Race New cables, brake pads, tubes, tires, and rim strips, some fresh grease, and a shakedown ride to make sure everything was working (including the rider.)

The bikes must be vintage but there is no vintage rider requirement so we shall see what the competition looks like: At the very least we'll give the youngsters something to shake their heads about!

That is awesome, looks in great shape!

Thanks you guys!

Closer photos would reveal that it definitely has some "patina."

I was working near Raley Field just for the morning and snapped this pic. Is your pal Brian or John from Edible Peddle? Great guys. I have bought bikes from both.

Brian. I know John, but barely. Come out to an SVDC ride if you're up for it. Brian can give you details.

Yesterday was nice enough to go check out one of the three bike co ops for some odds and ends, found one needed item and took in some neighborhoods along the way.

Today was warmer than yesterday so it was off to another bike co op within the sprawling U.B.C. campus grounds at the Western end of Vancouver, called the Endowment Lands where there is also Spirit Reach Park and the Spanish Banks which overlooks the North Shore mountains as well as the downtown core of Vancouver and Stanley Park. It was approximately 40 - 50 miles round trip. Managed to find some Suntour Power shifters and a Suntour front derailleur for the Centurion build.


Stopped for another cherry blossom tree shot before proceeding up a fairly steep street.







Looking out from the Endowment Lands after leaving the U.B.C. grounds.







Looking East along the road to Spanish Banks from U.B.C., Great section of road for a speedy decent.






A bit further down the road saw this Mercedes Benz 300SL Gullwing passing by. A nice and rather rare treat.






Vancouver from the Spanish Banks area





Closer to home in Burnaby along the Central Green Way bike route.

Beautiful cherry blossoms. Spring has certainly sprung in BC.

Here, not so much, at least not today. About an inch of snow overnight, so taking out the newly completed Rossin was put on hold. Took the Croll out instead and managed 37 miles with temps in the upper 30's. About an equal mix of smooth road, rough road, and gravel.

Along the Mississippi River channel.


On the bright side, I found a new toenail clipper on the road.

This isn't today because I haven't ridden....yet. Last 2 days I've done some fun riding. First ride to Portland all around for 28 miles. Great adventure except that it was very windy.

Yesterday I asked my friend, who has a brand spanking new Surly Wednesday, to show me about gravel riding. We met at Powell Butte Nature Park where we rode gravel and my first ever single track. Photos make it look tame, but there were more curvy rutted out areas along with mud. Never in my life have I done this. Overall it was fun. Her bike was MUCH funner to ride on this stuff.

Note the new wheels for my '78 Univega Gran Rally. H Plus Son TB14 black, Sapim Race spokes, brass nipples with original Sunshine high flange hub. Clement Strada LGG 28 wheels. Yummy. (I just built them up - got the good for my bday, so I'm bragging a little)

Very cool bikes and post.

Careful on the off road stuff. Next thing you know you'll be hanging on mtb forums.

@TimmyT and I rode the Eastern Pennsylvania Randonneurs club's "Lackawanna 200" brevet. Lots of hills (a little shy of 10,000 feet of climbing).

One highlight was passing under the Paulins Kill viaduct, built in 1911. At that time it was the largest reinforced concrete structure in the world. Pretty, too. Here's an old photo:

Another rather nice day so I went to one of my favorite rides around and near Stanley Park, took the Peschi out, finding myself on pretty well the only decent vintage road bike despite many cyclists in the park. So many trees were blossoming I had to take a few images.

Is this tower bridge a new thing? I left there in the early 80s, and don't remember it.

Oddly, I didn't feel like riding today. But it's Sunday and that's what I do. So I took the mountain bike for a spin around the neighborhood. The upside was that no helmet was required. Nor water.
