She's a doll, you're a lucky guy to have such a great helper for a task like this. Her top says it all, Best Day Ever!

I always like seeing your Pug, that is a nicely set up bicycle there and the green looks great, but I am partial seeing as how my Medici is another Green Marvel. Charging up the Volt while you get the chores done, also.

@gaucho777 You've been bringing back a lot of great memories for me with your Peninsula and East Bay Hills Rides. Thank you! Keep them coming.
@greg3rd48 I think your helper needs a new shirt: "Best Helper Ever!"

@qcpmsame Bill, she is the best little helper I could ever ask for. Since she sees me on a bike every day and we pass through my bike room all the time she has a fascination with bikes. She loves riding in the trailer on the rail path and loudly pronounces that the "red bike is my bike" (Raleigh Super Course TT). Of course everything red is "hers". We involve her and expose her to as many activities as possible so she appreciates helping out. Thanks for the kind words on the bike too. Once I finally have time to build the wheels I will have that Fuji Newest on the road like I promised to the seller last autumn!
@obrentharris I agree! She can wear it with her Renault-Gitane cycling cap that she claimed as her own and wears all the time despite it being a bit loose.

Ooh, I want to ride there! Going for a MTB ride this afternoon with my son, out west of Hailey. Rode there last night as well. Weather is coming in but hopefully it will still be ok.

Nice pics again, as usual.

I took the Grandis out for 51.8 miles today, what with the weather being so spectacular. I was forced to ride the Grandis or the Tommasini because I had no prep'ed sew-up spares. He! The Grandis does just fine, thank you.

While waiting for a stoplight I heard a voice say "I haven't seen one of those in a long time." I turned and saw a white-haired gentleman (with no beard but a lot more hair than I have left) pedaling up on an orange Merckx. We spoke for a few minutes about old bikes. He said he still prefers steel; I told him I had nine steel bikes and he said he had ten plus a track bike. When the light changed we took off. (He left me behind.) Much later we met up again and spoke for a few more minutes. Great fun.

I went along some roads I've done a few times but not so much lately. Approaching the Pope Rd/Strawberry Hill intersection:



Near the top of Strawberry Hill there is another of those squat stone towers like the one at the top of Cross St in Carlisle. The grounds on which it is located contain a beautiful old mansion set back from the road and horse fields and a stable and lots of fencing. Rather upscale for my budget, I think! But magnificent to see.



A short stop on the return, not far out of Alewife Station, a bit of history:



Finally, my attempt to produce artsy pic. I call this Strawberry Juice Rd.

I've been riding home roads the last couple of days, and the best pics have been shown numerous times.

Little ole Cougar Mt Farms in May Valley, home of May Creek, an area previously known as Coalfield.
Eagle sitting in the Cedar river

The pics are not fantastic but riding these tires made it so effortless, i bumped my typical mileage by 50%.

@Wildwood Yup It was her first day out. I believe I turned to my DH at about mile 5 and said there needs to be some changes made

I also learned that rod brakes in the rain are more of a suggestion then an actual way to reduce velocity. Still a great ride.

On Saturday-Sunday I rode the Gugified Holdsworth on a 600 km brevet with the PA Randonneurs.

[/url]

One of the highlights (there were many) was Hawks Nest, where the road hugs the cliffs over the Delaware River north of Port Jervis NY.

More photos here. I only took photos on Saturday. Holding the camera in my hand and taking the occasional photo was, I think, a mistake. It kept me from eating and drinking as constantly as I should have.

Nature's first green is gold, Her hardest hue to hold. Her early leaf's a flower; But only so an hour. Then leaf subsides to leaf. So Eden sank to grief, So dawn goes down to day. Nothing gold can stay.
- Robert Frost







Very green for now. Will move to shades of tans, reds, yellows, and primarily browns soon enough. But beautiful for now. Stay Gold, Pony Boy!

Great photos, as ever everyone!
@jimmuller - Nice to run into another 'old steel bikes' person when out for a ride!
Because my bike is a couple of years older than I am, the first assumption is often that I don't know what I have. Which isn't entirely unfair - a lot of people ride old bikes because of affordability rather than affinity. Though it often leads to some fun bikey discussions, I recently had a guy try and argue with me about the age of my bike, insisting it was from the late 70's. I countered that I was "pretty sure.." (pretty sure being sure, given I know from serial number and catalogue and parts) "...it's mid 80's..." "Nope, that's late 70's there." I let him have it.

@sunvalleylaw - Beautiful hills! Certainly not like anything we have on the coast up here.

@rhm - Really verdant countryside to ride through. And nice on-bike photography skills.

@Renngrrl - Very nice. Hopefully it was a warm rain!

@djkashuba - Looks like a poster!

Went for 40km on Saturday over to North Vancouver and back and 50km on Sunday out through Richmond and into Delta's Burn's Bog. I really need to start upping my distances to prepare for the Seattle to Portland ride in July!

Saturday I rode down to Redmond/Marymoor park. When I got home I decided that I hadn't ridden far enough to burn off the pizza from Friday night, so I continued down to Seattle. Ran into a lot of foot traffic on the Burke Gilman near UW as their Commencement was that same afternoon, so I took it slowly through there.

Nice day out with perfect low-70s temps and sunshine. A little over 40 miles for the day. Btw, this ride convinced me not to sell the Sparrow

Wife and kids are out of town and my day off left me a day with no responsibilities except for looking after the dog. I asked her if she minded if I spent a large chunk of the day out on the bike. She didn't seem to mind, so off I went. I loaded up the car and went to the northern end of the Blue Ridge Parkway, which is outside my usual stomping grounds. Total of about 55 miles (I wondered why the miles were ticking by so slowly on a climb and released I forgot to restart the computer after a break - doh!) with about 5500 feet of climbing. I took the Ciocc ("Chuck") as he hadn't been ridden in a while.

This is looking Northeast near Montebello, VA. This was the first peak of the ride at 3300 feet. You can see the Parkway just in the upper left corner of the photo:



This at Raven's Roost, the second "summit" of the ride at about 3200 feet, overlooking the Shenandoah Valley. One of the bothersome features of riding on the Parkway is the stream of noisy Harleys passing by at all times. Whenever I chat with the riders, though, they are always really nice, which makes it hard for me to complain too much. A couple of riders stopped and offered to take my pic for me.





Reward for finishing a tough day at the office.

It was a fun day. I dawdled quite a bit without the pressure of having to be back for family responsibilities. I live a little further south from there. Nice thing about today was the overall higher elevation than my normal BRP riding. Down in that valley it was 90's and muggy but barely broke 80 up in the hills.

The wife asked me to drive her out to SF where she had to spend a short day in the office. I used the excuse to go for a ride across the Golden Gate Bridge and up Mt. Tamalpais. Due to my taking a wrong turn and getting a little lost on the way up, time constraints forced me to head back to SF a couple miles before the summit. Still a glorious ~40 miles.

Approaching the Golden Gate Bridge:


View of SF from the bridge:


Made a quick stop at the excellent A Bicycle Odyssey in Sausalito for an energy bar and eye candy (not shown, but they have lots on nice frames of various styles and ages in the rafters):


One of the wrong turns lead up this beautiful road lined with a gurgling stream and redwoods. When a wrong turn turns out so right:


A nice view of Mt. Tam summit in the distance (the little white top of the observatory peaking over the top):


And a view of the Pacific:




One last shot of the bridge on the way back:

@rhm, you're really putting in some Hard Man miles, or rather kms. Is there a P-B-P in your future?

My hardest-core riding so far this year was my first trip of the season up to Hurricane Ridge yesterday, a measly 40 miles out and back and half of that is downhill. It's the first half where you gain 5,200 ft that gets ya.



Sun peeked out a few times as I reached the summit, otherwise it was perfect climbing weather, ~50 degrees, mostly cloudy with more or less consistent tailwinds. Of course that felt cold as winter riding back down, through misty fog most of the way. Not a fun descent as I had to stop four or five times to thaw out my hands so they could work the brakes.

Despite the extra-low gearing I've set it up with, my Technium Pro was kind of a lousy bike for this trip, high trail geometry and very flexy frame made the front end pretty wobbly with a 6-7lb bag riding on the bars. I think I'll take the ST600 next time.
