BQ un-meeting

Rolled out of Portland Friday morning from Velocult


Vista House on the mighty Columbia


Bridge of the Gods into Washington


We ran into this guy: he's been on the road since 2011, over 50k miles



The ride begins


Get off the paved roads, you see some stuff. A big family crossing at a natural intersection. Wish I had the video on, there were about a dozen in this gang.

More great pics! djk, that's a great shot.

gugie, that looks like a great ride. Lots of luggage, I see. Was that a multi-day trip? Not everyone was carrying though. Looks like lots of C&V-ish bikes too.

We partook in a 35 mile ride through the Bronx on Saturday which was organized by an employee at a fine local craft beer establishment. It was her birthday and she wanted to spend it riding and hopping the local breweries. Luckily it was my birthday also so my wife, myself and a few friends went. Around 75 people joined the ride and we had a great time. Such a group of friendly, fun people and there were always those willing to drop back to wait for the less experienced riders. On top of this over $3,000 were raised for a local charity for older foster children so add this to great beers, food and people and this was the perfect way to spend the day. Yesterday I did a 25 mile ride to shake the cobwebs but no photos. Here are a few shots.

Friday ride out, camping two nights, ride back. Mostly steel rando bikes, some definitely vintage. One of the guys I rode out with had a Motobecane that he'd mod'ed for rando use (650b x 38 tires, cantis, all the standard braze on fix'ns). The ride on Saturday was crashed by some velcro-carbon fiber cross team using it for training. They didn't interact much with the rando group. Two of their bikes broke out on the gravel, none of the steel one had issues - ha!

One of the big trends for gravel grinding is 2"+ wide 26" tires with disc brakes. On this ride 42's seemed about right.

Nice picts!


Managed another Milford, MA bike trail ride again on Sophia. Starting to feel more better. Other than a few very twisty bits, it's the typical boring bike path on an old RR bed.


I've got the wheels for Geraldine done, tires on, just need to finish up a few details, and have all the stuff for that.


To answer comments re Sophia - I acquired Sophia in 1967, my main ride for a number of years, commuted one Summer, about 15 miles each way with it. Also did a Montreal to Boston ride in 1972. Always dead reliable, and a pleasant but lively ride. Built about 1961, and purchased in Italy by the first owner. Columbus tubing, Campag bits of the era, nearly all original. I replaced the original NISI rims as the spoke holes were cracking. The rear wheel was 40 hole, so I managed to find a matching 3-piece Campagnolo hub, so everything matches.

We're still getting used to the tandem, so any ride on it is an adventure. On Friday, we did some shopping at two stores and took a ten-mile, lollipop-shaped route. No pictures. This was in the country.

Last night, in the city, we went to an elegant affair at The Players' Club. We took Citi Bike. I have the cutest wife in the world. Here she is in her dress, bearing down and picking up speed.

She really is beautiful, but she deserves a better tool bag.

Good to hear your up and at it again after a spill.

On the tandem you must take a picnic! Pics and a picnic!

Nice pic of your sweetie. Fortunately I saw it a few days ago. It seems to have disappeared.

Today, I had the pleasure of taking a 21-mile ride along the Calumet Trail between Porter and Michigan City, Indiana, through the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore and Dunes State Park. The trail appears to be a disused national park access road, with a variety of surfaces from smooth pea gravel, rutted dirt, to standing puddles across the entire trail and then transitioning to very large gravel as the trail merges into a railyard for the South Shore commuter trains. Coming back, I took a spin through beautiful Beverly Shores, home of the Century of Progress Architectural District, featuring lakefront homes moved from the 1933 World's Fair in Chicago across Lake Michigan. I would have liked to taken photos of those, but I was trying to increase my average speed on Strava.

Had a nice ride on the Anderson last night that put me over 3K miles for the first half of the year. My target of 6K for 2016 seems pretty spot on (of course saying that we will get a Halloween blizzard). Love this thread, just wish I had a better camera and more patience to stop and take pictures.

Any recommendations for something better than an iPhone for quick on the bike snaps, that also just plain works (no flipping to video accidentally, etc)? I'd love to get some of the wildlife photos I stumble across, but by the time I get into my phone's camera the scene is usually long gone.

I had the good fortune to have a decent amount of free time the past two days to ride in this gorgeous weather. Yesterday morning I rode 46 miles on the Fuji Ace and bumped into @noglider on the West Side Greenway and early this morning 25 miles on the U08 before work.

Yesterday








Today

Close, it's Hahn Rossman's* Bontrager conversion. Here he is explaining the fine points of brazing on a front fork disc tab to me, which, coincidentally, I'm in the middle of doing right now!



*Hahn is Jan Heine's "sidekick" on many of his Bicycle Quarterly adventures. Yeah, Jan and Hahn,
