From the tandem ride a few days ago





This isn't related to bikes, but it was a fun day anyway - a climb up the Jordan Cliffs trail. My sweetie is hidden in the middle of this one

@jimmuller Congratulations to you and your U08! Each bike needs to have its time in the sun at some point or another. When is the C&V ride that takes plce around your parts? It would be nice to try and make it there.

I tried to reply the normal way and the site won't let me (for some reason).
Anyway - great pictures. I always like seeing your Acadia trips. Was dinner at Mainely Meat by chance?
My wife and I were there in June, as always, and the Jordan Cliffs Trail is closed then for falcon nesting.

I am really, and I'm not kidding, ROTFLMAO!


Well I rode to Marlborough today to see what's new with my engine project. I passed this lovely barn on Fisher St in Southborough. All housing development behind it, of course.





Sorry I chopped the tree a bit. Stupid camera phone and lots of sun glare. (I have to blame it on something other than me, of course.)

That's a great photo, iab(chopped or not). I've driven up there, but not fortunate enough yet to ride my bike up it.

I've been riding some but kids school and sports activities have taken over lately. Yesterday my wife had a meeting in Packwood, so I drove down with here and rode up Cayuse and Chinook Pass. I made it only halfway up to the Sunrise visitor. She finished early so I had to turn back.

Not a lot of miles, but a great ride anyhow. 44 miles & 5,800 feet uphill.

I started riding at 9am and the temperature was only 40 degrees



An hour or so later when I got near the top of Chinook Pass it was 76 degrees..





I passed this guy on a Raleigh International near the summit, and ended up having lunch with him.

100 km thru the back roads of the next province over was going to ride south along the Mekong but the river has flooded the road headed south so I turned around and headed north. this was fine until I hit a patch of dirt road that had mud the consistency of runny sloppy baby poop all over and big deep muddy puddles spanning the entire width of the road.
The flood water returns


The Mekong floods just about every year


Hey guys, check out my shiny new Ultegra brakes...

Just got back from a nice 29 mile ride out into the western suburbs of Richmond, VA. Very nice ride... It felt great to finally get out there and stretch out in the drops for a little bit. No lower back pain, no sciatica, no anything. It was great!

29 miles in 1 hr 51 min for an avg speed of 15.6 mph. Below is a photo taken along Snead Rd in Manakin-Sabot, VA where the suburban road narrows a bit and goes into woods, well away from any houses.

I stopped briefly and am straddling my old C&V '85 Fuji when I snapped this photo with my smartphone.

It occurred to me that my usual morning ride on the Cape ends here:





Yes, that's the station featured in 'The Finest Hours'', a poor film about a great story.



GG 44301 is the gate guard, the first production 44 footer and the last in service before being retired in the early 2000s.



The north Atlantic starts here. It looks very different in February with 50 kt winds blowing.

I rode a metric century today. It was the normal Saturday morning breakfast ride, plus I rode with a couple of other riders to get some bonus miles before returning home. Rode the 1983 Raleigh Super Course.

Nice work, @-holiday76!

Today I took part in Boston's annual Hub on Wheels benefit ride. I've done this every year it's been held except for one, when I broke my hand the previous weekend. I've learned that if you get there a bit too late, you'll have scads of people between you and the start, and just getting to that point will take considerable time. This year, I was pretty close to the start:



And had a big crowd of riders behind me:



The starting point is at Boston's City Hall:



I was on my '73 Condor, a rare vintage steel bird among the many flocks of Alu and CF. I didn't take any bike pics other than this shot of my cockpit:



Overall, I rode 50 miles and was home by 11 a.m. A good day on the bike.

Mrs non-fixie and I made a round-trip from Orange to Avignon, here arriving at the famous pont d'Avignon:



As a matter of fact, people still dance on the bridge :

Thanks, non-fixie. I enjoyed that.
After singing that song in French classes over many years, I finally get to see the bridge.
