I got out this morning for a 45-mile loop with a neighborhood friend. Highlights included a 20-30 mph wind in our faces heading west with gusts up to 50 mph but more interesting was my first opportunity to see my friend's new Chapman Cycles custom. Schweet! I was on my @gugie-fied '71 Raleigh Int'l:

Your Leica and you take great photos. I might go back to digital, but I'll try film for awhile

These two hobbies complement each other perfectly. I first started carrying a camera on a bicycle when I was stationed at MCAS Iwakuni with VMFP-3's WestPac detachment in 1985. The camera was a Pentax K1000 and the bike was a "Benjo Bomber" rented from Special Services.


photo credit: 3mafband *NOTE: That's not me in the photo.

These were ancient single-speed roadsters, heavy and indestructable. They had to be, they were
usually piloted by drunken Marines. They were raced, jumped over benjos (open sewers - hence the name), and run up the flagpole after we stole them from another squadron. We were Road Pirates! Yaaarrrrrr...

Oops, sorry. Those are some powerful memories.

Lovely pictures, what a beautiful area you live in.

@Vonruden, fantastic photography in your posts every time. I have to agree with StrathsCycling, you live in a beautiful area for cycling, or you present things so that it certainly seems to be a great place for cycling. Perhaps both are in play.

Yeah, really nice pics. The only riding I did today was my desk chair. We had another inch of snow today. But I do intend to hop on the trainer later this evening.

Back to winter (at least temperatures) here in Minnesota. Twenty miler with temps in the upper teens.

Snow expected tomorrow, so out living the good life today.

No time for a long ride this weekend. I only made it out to the edge of the suburbs where the fruit trees are in blossom, even the tiny 3-4 foot new trees shown here.



Eroica California is only 4 weeks away, so I took a side trip on the home to the dirt trails in the city park for a little gravel practice.

I took a nice 30 mile ride after work yesterday and headed to the LI Sound. Boy was it windy! Fully loaded pannier and moving fast to stave off the cold. It looks like today will be my last day riding outside for a while if this NorEaster delivers the amount of snow that has been predicted...

Excellent photos, beautiful bike. This was just what I needed on a cold Monday morning, when I awoke to 3 inches of new snow on the ground. Time to get the Winter Pug out again...

Was at a classic ride in and around The Hague yesterday, on the Heck Colney. Great weather, nice company and spring in the air. Couldn't be better

Beautiful warm and sunny day in the bay area with temp in the upper 70s. I worked out a new, short loop that I expect to work into my regular ride rotation. Up & over the east bay ridge to Orinda, then up & over again back to Berkeley with a ride profile like an M (approximately 7.5 miles gradual uphill, then 3 miles steep downhill, ~1.5 flat, another 3 miles up, and another 6 miles down).

Our son and daughter in law are well and truly snowed in right now. They called this afternoon to let us know they were still extant. Snow is up to near the top of their windows on one side of their house, they are claiming cabin fever already. You guys and gals be careful playing in the white stuff, and please don't eat yellow snow.

My shots aren't spectacular but they (finally) share something in common with the beautiful pics above - sunshine!!!!!!!!
Log dam from recent rains/storms, other misc shots. I'm even under the 17 stone weight limit, but I need to shave a stone off before summer. Switched to 23mm tires on rear from 28 to make the fender work better. This is a popular trail with the 'teacup dog' set.
