I rode in someone's backyard......

Well, NorthBend has lived there over 30ish years and as much as he gets out, he knew the singletrack shortcuts, empty paved road sections, and all the gravel (that I am mild-ly acquainted with) on the Snoqualmie Valley trail. Sorry, no beer pics from the 19th @ Mt Si golf course.
edit: @northbend - was a pleasure riding with such a well dressed (and groomed) young man - the Campy fairly jumps out at ya.

About 50 miles yesterday on the Snoqualmie Valley Trail with @Wildwood.

Dog days of summer, the trail is mostly shaded to our turn around point at Carnation.

Stuart was gett’n all artistic at the Tokul tunnel

We pass by the millpond and stop at the Mt. Si Golf Course for a beer on the clubhouse deck

We get back on the trail and head up to the southern terminus of the Snoqualmie Valley Trail at Rattlesnake Lake. Stuart takes some samples of the road surface for later study :-)

We stop by a nice shady spot along the river for a few minutes. Stuart washes out his flesh wound and we’re off again

We turn around at Rattlesnake Lake and head back to North Bend.

A gradual downhill run all the way back into town and we’re sitting in the North Bend Bar n Grill having beers, a fine way to end the day.

Thanks for coming out to ride with me Stuart.

@northbend You always have the most incredibly scenic photos to share with the rest of us. No exceptional natural scenery on my ride today and only 16 miles were covered but it was a gorgeous day to be outdoors. I rode with my wife to her school then volunteered for a few hours as a master composter with the NYC Compost Project on the campus while she was in class. I also observed a worn Peugeot mixte on the rack where my wife locks up.
@v8powerage It must be such a tranquil and reflective place.

Another example: Life is best enjoyed from the perch of a bicycle saddle , and riding with friends. Great PNW & Seattle area riding community. Thanks all.

Nice pics v8powerage, I will never get there = thanks a bunch.


Below, I went 'down by the river' and ran across Kenny Jones' former business.

had a nice early morning 30 mile ride around the Erie Canal bike trail. Only rode it for about 10 miles, but if you follow it all the way, you can get to Rochester. Something for me to consider!



View of the Canal from a bridge.

Only took the one picture, I'll take more next time!

So much corn you could get lost in it.

Nice pics of some nice rides. I like the red firehouse. (Is there a bike in that pic?)

I had a day off so we took the tandem out for 42 miles today. Had no destination in mind but ended up stopping at a favorite organic veggie farm in Concord, then went north into Carlisle before heading east back home.

First, was it one of you who called out "Hi Jim" about 10:30 this morning? I was too focused on the road and didn't recognize who it was.

A few pics from today's outing...

First, lunch! Of course my sweetie had to snap a pic of me eating and playing with my smarffone.



And we took this one, a non-selfie despite what it looks like. I propped the phone up on the picnic table and triggered the camera with my smartwatch. Pretty cool, eh?



When we arrived at Hutchins Farm someone else had ridden in by bike to pick up some veggies.



My pic posting is likely going downhill, alas. For many years I've used Paint Shop Pro X to resize them with minimal significant artifacts. A few days ago it just stopped working. End of the line. It wouldn't start up. Attempts to fix it from Windows Control Panel/Install would do nothing except eventually remove it entirely. Unfortunately I can't find my original disk to re-install it. I got my money's worth out of it designing a few CD covers (and we have another CD in the works) so I'm willing to buy a newer version. However the latest version Pro X9 wont run under WinXP. I don't want to upgrade the aging laptop so I have to find another computer. Gack.

That was me! I was out with a neighborhood buddy, having just dropped another friend off at his workplace in Cambridge, and heading out to Verrill Farm for a snack. We ended up riding 64 miles through those northern and western burbs before heading back to Brookline. It was a gorgeous day to be out on a bike.

Got in a quick 8.8 mile ride before the rain started back up from the tropical storm. I also wanted to try something new, and put on a bright neon yellow reflective vest, and rode my old C&V '85 Fuji along Courthouse Rd, the other side of town from my house. I put my old Fuji in the back of my truck with a bungee cord for safety. I just prop it up on the wheel well in the bed of my pickup.

Inside the big parking lot of Rockwood Park. My son-in-law grew up playing little league in the park as a kid.



In the back lot of Super Radiator Coils (a company I used to work for). No, they are not an automobile radiator company. They manufacture huge heating and cooling transfer units - mainly the gigantic refrigeration units for supermarkets. I didn't work in the shop, as I was one of the I.T. guys, handling their big Unix server and order entry database programming.

I got out for around 30 or so earlier to tweak the fit on a new setup on the International - wider & higher quality bars, taller stem, new post and saddle. A few more parts will likely change before I set things in place w/ tape and new cables. I'm not sure about the Cambium yet (came off another bike that doesn't get ridden as much). Fit is an excellent balance between long distance comfort -as best as I can tell for now- and staying out of the wind (needed that today with Hermine on her way).

Heading out.


Found a shortcut to avoid some highway riding. Also lost the right toeclip; found it again and reattached it and resumed my travels.


Found religion.


Wooden bridge.


Stone bridge.


How we roll.


Another pretty church.


Another wooden bridge.


Ready for lunch and almost home.

Today I rode my 1983 Raleigh Super Course. I had to do some work on it after a recent fall- new brake levers, new bar tape. Did 52 miles on the club breakfast ride.







Those drillium brake levers go well with my drillium chain ring


The old Cyclone Mk II is still working even after extensive damage when I dumped the bike last month
