Good practice on the slow technical stuff, I guess - especially with a bike not really meant for this type of thing. Roots and rocks aplenty. Good to venture outside the comfort zone, I'll be back here now and then.

Thanks, Bernard!



Made it through.
Wow. Did anyone else notice the bar being raised? I think I just bumped my head!

I haven't ridden any trips of note lately; mainly because of work and the weather, I've been spending much of my time in the shop. I'm posting some stuff over on "What Have You Been Wrenching On Lately" after this, but I hope to get out for some good miles this weekend.

I really covet that Raleigh...

Wow, that's pretty effing bad. Unfortunately, my eyes are that bad, too. So, on the one-foot-in-the-grave sweepstakes, I'm still one up on ya, buddy. Anyhoo, thank G_d modern corrective lens technology works a lot better than hearing aids! Otherwise I'd be a total invalid.

Nice pics, nice rides.

I do have one request re pics however. When you post pics with pixel dimension 1000000x100000000 (or whatever), either BF or our browsers are going to compress them to something displayable, or else we can't see them all on one computer screen in which case the overall effect is lost. Yet downloading a 5Mbyte image take more than just a few milliseconds for some of us. You could do us a favor and reduce the sizes to something like 800x600, or even 1200x900, before you post them. Thanks.

Speaking of riding today, today was momentous. No pics but we took the tandem out for 45 minutes. My sweetie has been recovering from a minor injury, neither serious nor bike-related but something that heals slowly and only if you give it time unstressed. So after 5 months we tried the tandem. It was awesome.

Probably the case.

Annoying though, especially if you have limited ride time with your kids at Saturday soccer game age.

Sorry, but I'm running out of adjectives.

Please keep them coming, @Vonruden, you clearly have this medium mastered. This shot in particular is definitely frame-worthy. Great shot!

Wow,so many beautiful photos of late!
@djkashuba - that burner bikes van shot is really captivating. Tells a story in a really photo-journalistic fashion.

Rode the Centurion up to the Lower Seymour Forest Conservation Area today, though with fading light I opted not to go as far as the dam. Will have to set out earlier and finally get up there some day. Perhaps next weekend if the weather holds.



When I set off this afternoon it looked like I was taking a bit of a rain risk as there were ominous black clouds gathering on almost every horizon and just a narrow strip of blue up above. Forged on and seemingly chose to stay right in the midst of the clear bit of sky, though as I got to the forest the sunshine wasn't much match for the low cloud and mist. Very atmospheric.

I managed to take the Grandis out this morning.



The proverbial "they" had predicted a slight chance of showers but the weather looked clear when I started. In fact we were hoping to do another short tandem ride and then go apple picking with our neighbors. But first, the bike ride...





At one point I stopped briefly to check the radar map. Hmm, it showed a pretty big band of green stuff (not money, alas) out beyond I495. I thought maybe if I headed back a bit early I could beat it. By the time I got to Lexington the sprinkles had started. I thought maybe if I took the shorter route through Follen Heights I could beat it. Then it started raining. By the time I got to Waverley Square it was raining steadily. I though maybe if I just enjoy being wet I can't get any wetter.

Now I have to clean up the bike. But I did get in 30.5 miles. It looks like apple picking is off the table.

Nice neighborhood ride with my soon to be teenage Son, Gaack!, while I see if the Halloween bike is ready. Hot and muggy today with rain at times.

@musicdiver, great use of fog!

@3speedslow, Gaack is a funny name for a boy. Do his friends tease him a lot?

Probably for the best we don't go further than that one, being pre-teen boys.....

No photos but nice to be back in the saddle after a month+ out of it. The Raleigh Pro was a good choice.

Led a club ride down to Newtowne Neck State Park in St Marys County, Maryland on a hot, steamy day that would have been right at home in mid-August. 50 miles. The body of water is the Potomac River.
