@jimmuller, I know that bench and rocking chair well! Brings back good memories of that ride, the stop there at Fern’s for snacks made it seem warmer, that was a rainy windy cold day.

Saint Paul at Sunrise - Raleigh Wyoming

I rode my newly completed Raleigh Wyoming down along the Saint Paul waterfront on Friday morning. I've built this bike without a kickstand, so I had to get a bit creative with placement.


This is the same setup I used with my Pug Orient Express.

As I mentioned yesterday, this is a fairly lightweight tourer, and it has the nice stable handling qualities of a slack-geometry frame.


The lighting at sunrise was amazing yesterday.

Here's a better shot of the boats, without the bike in the shot:



I've shot bikes here many times, and it is still my favorite location. Going at a different time of day freshens things up a bit.







Shadow selfie:



I'm going to ride this bike as much as possible before the snow flies. There's a plan in the works to ride to Prescott, Wisconsin on Sunday.



Today... Who knows? I might just ramble. This is that kind of bike.

The $25 Rockhopper Comp Caper

Some of you have been following this saga over in the "Are You Looking For One Of These?" thread. Here are some pics of our (mine and the bike's) first ride this morning.



First thing I noticed was how different that long stem feels - it totally changes the steering dynamics. I rode over to Thompson Lake and hit the off-road trail section.



We rode some single track that didn't look like it had had much use, and sure enough I found the reason why: It went right through a big patch of... I call them "sticker balls", don't really know what the actual name is. Now I'll be picking little prickly things out of my clothes all evening. So no pics of the single track. I'll go somewhere else for those.


This thing needs knobbies!

There are plenty of steep hills like this back in the woods by Thompson Lake. Granny gear on this bike is useless - all I got was wheelspin - and I had to walk it up most steep hills. These tires have got to go...

I had forgotten how much harder mountain biking is than road riding. Roughly three miles offroad had me working up quite a sweat - clearly I was overdressed for this. But the temp was only 36°F when I went out.


Took this shot on the way home on the dock at Thompson Lake.

I'll be ordering some tires, and if they come before the snow flies I'll go and visit those hills again.

Those are some f'in amazing photos above. I can tell you really know how to use the natural light to your advantage, some of those pics look almost 3-D.

Don't throw those old tires away, they look like they're in great shape, and matched too. I still can't believe what a deal you got on that bike. See this thread: eBay / CraigsList finds - "Are you looking for one of these!?" Part II

Tough photos to keep up with, as usual. The sunrise essay is great.

We took the tandem out again today, for 33.23 miles. The plan was to explore some new roads but one of the roads I planned for a cut through to another road complex was signed Not A Through Street. (They don't call them Dead Ends around here. I guess they figure that might offend someone. I always read those signs as Not A Thorough Street because they didn't bother to build the other end of it.) So we had to improvise.

Which way to go, this way or that way? (We went left.)



Ah, civilization! Lunch at the Concord Public Library.

The Bike balanced on the mooring made me cringe just a little for fear of the Bike toppling into the drink. Nice shot though.
A lot of nice photography in fact, and always a pleasure to view.
The Specialized? Yup, good to see it on the road.

Where I grew up, the phrase of choice was "No Outlet". As a kid, I was very confused. "Mom, why can't they plug their stuff in on that road?"

I hope this bike isn't too new for the thread. It's a mid-'00 Soma Smoothie frame (designed with the classics in mind) that I built up with mid-'90's Dura Ace components. I've been riding it to work this week, but I took it out for my first real ride this morning, through downtown Tempe and Scottsdale. I can't compete with DQ's city sunrise pictures, but I can try.

Tempe has really exploded over the past decade. I only moved here five years ago, and already I can hardly recognize some of the pictures I took back then. It seems like a new tower goes up every few months.



The sun came out as I was crossing the Salt River. It's cool enough to ride any time of day now, but the sunrise is always too beautiful to pass up.

None of the buildings in this picture existed five years ago, except for the power plant in the distant center.



I really like this new bike. It's fast and stiff, but still very smooth, even to me, someone who's only ever ridden steel frames.



From there, I followed the Crosscut canal through the hills of Papago Park, the only place I ever get to use the smaller front chainring.





That took me to the Arizona Canal, which was initially very crowded with joggers, as it is every weekend morning this time of year. I followed it through downtown Scottsdale, which has some very cool public art. I went just a little further north from there, then headed back home. I went 32 miles in all.

Well, thanks. I've been doing this a long time, having been a motojournalist for quite a few years. But bicycles are my passion now, and I'm not nearly athletic enough anymore to make the big time in this field.

Thanks! Yeah, I wouldn't have attempted it had their been any significant breeze. But you can tell by the surface of the water that it was dead calm this morning. If you look closely in some of those photographs, you will see a small twig that I placed as a chock in some of the shots, whenever there was any slope involved. "Tricks of the trade..."

Today took me down Central Park, over the Queensboro Bridge and then over the Pulaski Bridge to Greenpoint and Williamsburg. A photo op in Macarran Park to show off the downtube shifters - this bike had Simplex bar end shifters until I snagged the proper Campys:



Back to Manhattan over the Williamsburg bridge where I followed the water south past the Manhattan and Brooklyn bridges, then back north along the Hudson River Greenway back home on the Upper West Side. About 23 miles in all.

^^ Great shots! @ascherer We certainly should do that soon.

I took the newly road-ready Newest out for a 43 mile spin yesterday. No destination in mind, just meandering.

VR, nice but I'd think twice before riding in those woods this time of year, orange bike or no. Now that you mention it, we saw a large doe on our tandem ride yesterday. This time of year deer are "on the prowl".

I did a bit of woods riding today also, but not quite the same. I took the Masi out for a solo ride. The wind can be described with one word, brutal and barbaric. So I figured I'd take the Old Reformatory Rail Trail for a bit just to stay sheltered. We rode part of it on the tandem yesterday and I was curious what some of the rest was like.



After a mile or so of this I asked myself Why did I take this bike with 23mm sewups on this trail??
Well, no harm done. Lunch was good...



Not much traffic out today, not many bikes either. I stopped at Ferns for a warm cup of coffee. Can you spot which bike is mine?



I ended up with 53.75 miles, not a bad day.

Just wanted to say thanks to everyone who posted here this weekend. Excellent photography, which gives us all a chance to see places we may never get to physically. It's been a wonderful year in bikes for me. As long as I ignore what is going on in politics, the economy, and ecology, I can almost manage to keep a positive outlook for the year ahead.

Had a wonderful ride to Prescott, Wisconsin today with a friend who is "legally blind" - enough so that he cannot hold a driver's license anymore. Nevertheless, he manages to ride far and wide with an endurance that would put plenty of young riders to shame. My camera was acting up, so I have only a few shots that turned out. I'll post them tomorrow night, if I get a chance.

The work week is upon us once again, and I have to turn my attention to less appealing subjects.
I'll be commuting (without a camera) on Celeste, my Bianchi SR tomorrow morning, so that should start the day on a positive note. Cheers everyone. Ride safe...

Parts of the Great Lakes shoreline remind me of the Chesapeake Bay, only I view the bay mainly by boat while fishing for Striped Bass.

If you only moved to the Tempe area 5 years ago, you should look for pics of that area from the early 80s. That whole lake by the old mill used to be a river - a small one, until it flooded. Phoenix and Tempe seem to be constantly developing and have been ever since the 70s - every time I go back to visit I discover a new freeway, I swear! I love the last pic - next time I'm down I'm going to have to duplicate that route as I've not been on the Canal path in Scottsdale.

Beauty of a bike, too! Thanks for sharing your great photos
