Nice ride this morning although hot... Saw this rather nice relic at a neighbor's barn. Probably could have it for cheap if you're interested.

That looks very nice. My wife and I have contemplated this area as a long weekend destination. The pictures are helping.

Just got out of the shower and relaxing from a nice (but hot) bicycle ride here in Richmond, VA down to the James River and out to a great Chinese restaurant called Mandarin Palace, turned around and rode back home. All in all, the ride was 15.10 miles in 56:30 for an avg of 16 mph. Not too bad... The photos tell the story:

The route from my house on MapMyRide...




I stopped at 3 Sports (excellent LBS on River Rd & Huguenot) even though they weren't open yet. It was funny - a husband & wife bicycle couple stopped also and we chatted. They loved my C&V '85 Fuji Del Rey, but suggested I upgrade into something newer once 3 Sports opens up (thanks, but no thanks... My old Fuji is a classic and built like a tank. It's "old school" and just keeps on going and going...)




Stopped at the Z-dam along the James River. Look at how low the water level is! Normally it's ROARING over the dam! Good Lord, do we need rain! Look close to the right, and you'll see a young guy with a fishing pole, standing on the dam!




If anyone is into Chinese, this restaurant called Mandarin Palace on Forest Hills serves excellent food!




As seen in this photo, there was NO WAY I was going to ride along Forest Hills, so I wisely turned around in the parking lot and headed back to Riverside Drive, and back home...




Lastly, I stopped at River Road Baptist Church (even though I'm Presbyterian) seeking some "Divine Guidance" in getting me home safely and not dying from heat exhaustion!

I rode my Bianchi over to the gym this morning, did some weight work, rode home by a slightly longer route. Probably did all of 4 miles.

On Friday they cancelled the club ride so I rode from home - nothing special, the Mount Vernon Trail south to Fort Hunt, with a bit of noodling around through the neighborhoods. The trail passes under the Woodrow Wilson Bridge (I495) and after stopping at the rest room I decided to take a picture of my newly-fendered 1963 Jack Taylor Sports:

My riding time has been limited lately, but I was able to get out for some hills in the sun this morning. Only about 33 miles, but that included 3,700' of climbing.



Through Tilden Park in Berkeley. They let herds of goats graze the hillside to keep the undergrowth down. This was only a small portion of the herd. There must have been around 60 of them spread out down the hillside.

54 miles this morning before it got a little too hot for enthusiasm. Pic of the bike at my stop at Minnehaha falls. Should have ridden hills today, but decided to ease around the cities on the paths. Oh well, maybe I'll hit some hills tomorrow...

Rode with a group of vintage enthusiasts along the Middle Fork of the Snoqualmie River, out of North Bend, Washington. The occasion was a gathering of many friends/acquaintances who are collectors as well as 'large fleet' riders.

I'm sure there will be more pics later somewhere on C&V. Matt P, Jeff R, Andy A and many other BF members were present with cameras. Here's a couple from the ride.

I rode out to Hammonasset beach today. Low-mid 80s with a breeze off the water was a welcome change from the heat this past week. I wound up putting in just over 60mi of coastline riding with 1700' of climbing.











Refreshments.

[MENTION=460163]palincss[/MENTION], we should get together with some of the other locals for a vintage ride. I live in Burke and ride the Martha Custis end of that trail every other week. Never gone across the Woody Wilson, though.

[MENTION=299098]Vonruden[/MENTION] We love visiting New Paltz and the surrounding area and did a day trip up there earlier this month. You must have a had a great time camping! [MENTION=358081]Sir_Name[/MENTION] Great coastline shots. One of these days I will actually make it up there to ride. [MENTION=460163]palincss[/MENTION] Using goats to dispose of invasive plants and brush should be used in more places. It would make sense in the NYC parks too where invasives have become an issue and they are trying to restore original habitats. Great photos and goats! [MENTION=429363]DQRider[/MENTION] Always love your classy rides! [MENTION=22396]Wildwood[/MENTION] Great photos of what must have been a great event.

I rode in the July PA Pandonneurs 200K yesterday and there was some wonderful scenery in the Delaware River Valley area. I really should have taken photos but I was hesitant to stop. Hawk's Nest was really quite beautiful. I only took a couple of photos before the last long climb at Old Mill Road so hopefully [MENTION=73614]rhm[/MENTION] has a few to make up for my The weather was not as oppressive as I thought it was going to be but nonetheless it was hot in the sun and the 7,300+ ft. of climbing made for a good sleep last night.

A few of these photos are Raleigh corny.
Descended from on high to the low stream. Then sweated my way back up.
Hands on the bar, legs pedaling steadily, breeze in the face, moving silently, eyes checking it all out- what pleasure.

Flowers: bachelor buttons (blue cornflower); yellow roadside lupin; bees all over the coneflower; Rose of Sharon.

Met up with family at Cypress Ca swapmeet so I decided to bike it. 18 miles took about an hour with a flat midway thru the ride.



Best swapmeet find ever....Bicycle wall ornaments still with Ross tags at 22 a piece brand new but snagged both for $25.

I went for a ride with [MENTION=381793]gugie[/MENTION] to keep our legs ready for the North Trask ride -- up Old Germantown Road, along Skyline and down Logie Trail. There were a lot of great views on the ride, but we didn't stop much for pictures. I've just got this one shot of Big Red and the Blingarello at Mason Hill Park.



After the ride we went back to Atelier Gugie to bend the fork on my next bike project.

As [MENTION=384048]greg3rd48[/MENTION] mentioned, we rode the Eastern PA Randonneurs "Hawks Nest 200k" on Saturday. It was a hot one! I did not take any photos, but I tried making a couple videos at Hawk's Nest. It's a pretty striking place. When I took this, I thought greg3rd48 was right behind me, but alas, it was another guy.

[MENTION=299098]Vonruden[/MENTION] and [MENTION=384048]greg3rd48[/MENTION], next time you're near New Paltz, give me a call. We're there nearly every weekend.

This weekend, my wife really wanted to ride, and that's so heartening. I put a $3 wired computer on her bike. According to my GPS tracks, we did 17.8 miles. Her computer said 17.9 miles, so I guess I calibrated it well enough.

We averaged 10 mph, which is normal for her. It was a record for her, the longest ride she's taken upstate. It's not impressive to us strong, experienced riders, but I'm proud of her. She handed the hills better than ever. Meanwhile I accidentally dissed her saying the hills seemed easy. I think I must be a terrible gauge of hill difficulty, as I seem to have gotten better at them recently. I've been meaning to head to the Catskill mountains nearby to find an ass-whooping hill. I need to be humbled.

We took the ride in hopes of joining a group canvassing to get people registered to vote. The address info was mistaken, and we arrived too late, but we had a nice ride anyway.

Took the day off to ride gravel. 54 miles along the river bluffs and through farms on top. 4600 feet of climb, but with the scenery only a few of them really were felt in the legs. Shared most of my morning commute with the animals along (and sometimes on) the road.

Lots of pics, including a some of the "roads" in a few spots, and a view down toward Lake Pepin.
