I did the Newport Beach to Ensenada Yacht Race more than a few times. Hussong's Cantina was indeed Epic too. The walk back to the Estero Beach hotel was more of a stumble home.

@Drillium Dude, Too bad about your saddle. I liked the looks of that one, too.

I rode my Merlin about 28 miles and 2600' of climbing, taking a northern loop from Berkeley into El Sobrante via The Arlington and up Wildcat Canyon back home. Took one photo of a colorful Berkeley home with statues in the front yard.

Yeah, that the way it is with those cheap plastic saddles. I got one for my 14th birthday in 1974 and it's cracking across the tail in several places already! Another ten years and it'll be unusable

Can I submit 2 photos with the qualification of 'where did you go today' instead of 'where did you ride today'? As a means of justification the minivan contained 5 bikes (well 2 aren't finished, but they had wheelsets + stem/bars ).


Some may remember 1980's event. Easy to see in pic 2 where the major lahar flow traveled.

^ That makes for a great ride @Wildwood

I've ridden it several times with the "Tour De Blast" and once on my own when I played hooky from work and rode it before the road up to the viewpoint was open to cars. Really cool area

After I dropped off my daughter at school (bike-to-school day: free swag), I had a little over an hour before I had to start getting ready for work. I decided to burn the time by making a trip up the Bay Bridge. You can only go to Treasure Island (about half-way to San Francisco) on the new portion of the bridge via bike. It was my first time making this trip. Glad I did. A quick 20-miles out & back with some nice views of the bay.

The way out to the bridge along the bay:



On the bridge:

Those last couple pics are pretty much my backyard

So many awesome rides and bikes.

I completed my first populaire today, the Meshomasic 121k. It was a blast, 50/50 pavement/dirt with a series of brutally fun and steep fire road climbs and descents toward the front end. Fun people and cool bikes, plus the start/finish was at a brewery - doesn't get much better than that. Great day, and the icing on the cake was that the rain forecast of wet after 10 am held off until after a friend and I finished the ride mid-afternoon. Nice cooling drops for the final 10 or so miles.









Warp speed!




Recovery.

What have you got them clipped to in that pic?

A mountain bike tour through the wildflowers (and sometimes in the falling snow, spring in Idaho and all) in the Croy trail system outside of Hailey, Idaho.

Map Here: Home - BCRD Summer TraiLink

Like this but more wildflowers this week:






EDIT: I realize I posted this in the vintage section, and we were not "vintaging" today. But it is where I have been hanging out so that is where it went.

I wouldn't worry about that - we love beautiful scenery, too!

That looks like a damn fun ride

Yeah, the trail system out west of Hailey is pretty good stuff! Mostly IMBA designed type flowy trails, very fair climbs, etc. The more alpine stuff in the trees and big mountains opens up later. That is me on the left in the lower photo, BTW.

That trial looks like it could be smooth enough for a laid-back road bike on 28mm tires. I like the way it appears to roll, vice straight-up climbing.

You have some great scenery/places to ride out there.

The scenery Is nice. And yes, I think you could ride some of this on a 28/32/35 mm roadie/gravel/allroad. But I wouldn't myself. Too much fun on my Kona. Lot's more of those roads you see in the one photo where I would more ride a laid back road bike.

@ northbend, absolutely beautiful pictures, you gentlemen are fortunate in the ride scenery that is available, and you do a great job of documenting them. Very nice bike too, looks very well thought out and must provide a great ride. Chapeau sir.
@sunvalleylaw, very nice pics from your ride also. I wouldn't sweat where the posting here, we haven't had to prosecute or sentence any miscreants in quite a
while.
@Sir_Name, I'm with Jeff about the laminated route sheet on the spring clip, my exact kind if high tech solution. Another idea thief here too.

Thanks all. I am a member of some other forums that are pickier about staying "on topic" and things like that.


@Sir_Name , beautiful looking ride! Hey, what wheels and tires do you have on that bike? I am shopping for new tires for my Davidson, and those look nice.

Nice pics and post! It has been a long time, but I used to live in that area, and cycled some of those areas too. Last year, I bought a boat from a guy who lived on that East Lake Sammamish trail. And I used to cycle around UW (as a student) on a very, very nice borrowed late 70's or early 80's Motobecane.

I am originally a Tacoman myself, and still visit family in the Gig Harbor area and Tacoma and Seattle and try to bike every time I am there.
