I was on my '49 Raleigh Clubman. Other bikes participating included a 1950 Raleigh Clubman, a '57 Maclean's, a Norman, a Robin Hood, and one or two others I'm not remembering!
















Nice. I believe I see Mt Greylock in the background of the first picture?

Yup, that is Greylock. We weren't quite up to taking the old bikes up that one.

Road over to NJ and explored a little of Hunterdon COunty.






Got excited when I saw this place was for sale, but alas, it is zoned residential and includes a nice house. Would have made a swell shop building, I bet.

Looks like an old Mill. The "S" shaped wrought iron was to hold the stones in place when the mill wheel vibrations shook the building.

The lugs on your Peugeot look like those from an earlier than '72. Maybe '69, or thereabouts? The holes (drillium) look good. Nice pics.

28 miles. Blue Norther blew in last night, dropped the temp to the 40's-which for San Antonio is downright arctic. Beautiful crisp day--BUT, heading home, with a cold North wind in my teeth, kicked my a$$!

Nice pics of Jersey and Connecticut! I t was a nice day in New England, f'r sure.

We took the tandem out for 40 miles. Couldn't stay out much longer, too many things getting in the way.

Yep, cooled Houston down also. Did my 40 mile shop ride this morning with a ~20 mph headwind for much of it. We're forecasted to be back near 80 by next week.

Temps in the 30's today, and have the week off. Still need a couple hundred miles for my annual goal, so put 42 easy ones in today. Inspected a few of the St Croix river crossings

I just rode my usual pre-dawn commuting miles this morning so nothing worthy of a photo. We did visit friends in Philadelphia this weekend, however, and my friend and I made the most of the mid-'60s temperatures on Sat. afternoon by riding 30 miles around town. The weather was ideal and there were people everywhere with the same idea. We also visited Firth and Wilson Transport Cycles in Fishtown on @fender1 recommendation which was a highlight. One of the proprietors spent about 15 minutes chatting with us and giving us a tour of the shop when I told him the shop was a destination for me. He did have positive feedback on my trusty U08 too which was nice. The ride was punctuated by a few beer stops and ended with a great dinner waiting when we returned. Great day.

Went for a shorter than normal ride this afternoon, riding was great with the weather warming up some from the first cold snap of the year. I took some laps around a large farm field where the cotton crop for this year is being harvested now. The Medici was in its element as this is a natural 4 corner criterium loop, and getting to it is sweet roadways for riding anytime. Everything was clicking at 100% today, until....

The trip home is where things turned to the worse part of the cyclist spectrum. A Heinz 57 breed dog that has been chasing after me for a few months decided that today was the day to escalate his pursuit to the seek and bite level. He got the back of my right lower leg, mid way between the knee and ankle. I yelled a few choice expletives at him and he stood his ground. I yelled more at the house a witness said he belonged to, with no response.

As the mutt had walked up to the door I didn't see it being prudent to go up and seek out the occupants. I went to remount and proceed home to check my leg over since it was starting to hurt like the dickens. As I took off the mongrel came snarling out at me again, I unhooked my Silca pump, ready to sacrifice it as a mace to brain him if he got remotely close enough. Got hold of County Animal Control office, they were more than helpful, took my report and sent an control officer (sworn law enforcement officers here) to take the dog in for quarantine since his bite broke the skin.

Mandatory 10 days in the observation kennel, and a citation for the owner. The officer called to let me know he had gotten the dog and spoken to the owner, she told me the kid that was a witness confirmed my story 100%. I just want to ride through without getting attacked, but I doubt I am riding on that particular road anytime soon. Lots of other roads to cover with no dogs on them around here.

I have no intention of bringing up a civil suit so no harm in telling my story here. If the owner(s) are stupid enough to retaliate I will just let the justice system handle them too. Criminal charges involve more that a 10 day in the locked kennel, when its assault. I doubt I will hear anything more, their neighbors don't care for them or their dog either. Sad that people cannot keep proper control over their dogs, it ain't rocket science.

And no I don't want the dog taken down, not really a problem as long as it passes muster, but I was told it had its shots up to date by the AC Officer. I would like the owners to understand why their pet was taken away and they have to pay a stiff fine, also. Not exactly sure how much it is, and I don't really want to know either. Our dog is controlled all of the time, and she is well trained too.

Bill

Youch. A sad turn of events for you Bill. You did exactly what I would do and report the incident and hope/expect the owners to take proper precautions in the future. Everyone can mess up once. And I agree, training a dog is a pleasure that is worthwhile, and not difficult. When I suffered similar happenstances, I got the shots at the hospital just in case. It did cost me a bit, but well worth it.

A dog that draws blood from a human being is either highly trained or not trained at all.

I am up to date on my shots, so the dog is safe from any problems due to drawing blood. Actually, my tights didn't get torn or punctured, those Nashbar riding tights are good stuff. It wasn't really a big deal, I am just fed up with the one dog chasing me every day. There are plenty of other roads to ride around this area, where he was located is one of the worst patches of pavement I ride and I have been exploring a few others to break the monotony.

Thanks for the support, I agree with everything said above. Best thing is my bike wasn't crashed from the incident, he has actually slammed into my rear wheel before. Didn't take me down then, but it was the day I knew he bore watching closely. If my Medici had been messed up this would be an entirely different story, many tears would have been shed by me.
