The usual post-work ride up the north shore.

The Bahá'í Temple in the setting sun.



This pic reminds me thst I need to shorten the rear brake cable a little.

Hastings Again...

Finally a day with clear skies and sunshine! I decided to head for my favorite trails along the river valley in Hastings, MN.

I know... I post a lot of rides from that location, but that is because the trail system around this small town is the best within 100 miles of home.

Here are a few shots from Sunday's ride:


What do they call this? Dual track? Anyway, this one is hard-packed and very nice to ride on.


The cornfields outside of town are doing well with all the rain we've had. "Knee-high by the fourth of July" shouldn't be a problem this year.


Oh look! A vertical terrain feature. Not exactly a majestic mountain, but we'll take it.


Sure makes a nice backdrop for the bike beauty shot, doesn't it?


They call this "Bluff Bridge", for the obvious reason.


The sculpture garden has been refreshed with this single piece. The artist was clearly inspired by the last Winter Olympics, and the spectacle of Curling.

I am what they call an "Anglophile", here in the breakaway colonies.

Typically I ride with a group of like-minded souls called the "Gentleman Cyclists", who put on the Lake Pepin 3-Speed Tour, and the All British Cycling Event (ABCE, obviously). I've got to say, your photos here are an absolute delight during these crazy times. They confirm to us that history is not dead, and that you folks prevented greedheads from erecting condos over that hallowed ground. One of my dreams is to take a trip to England and cycle through some of your history, and take lots of photos along the way. Maybe someday...

Cheers, mate!

Nice you can park it right where you work, Jim
I really miss riding to work...don't miss work at all though.
Retirement's great but I always looked forward to the ride in and ride back as a summertime routine.

There is a flying B-17 stationed at Duxford. In the summer it often flies around. If I recall correctly one of its inboard engines always overheats so they keep flying hours to a minimum. Unfortunately because it has four engines the insurance policy cost is the same as a 747 passenger jet!

But I'll ask them anyways if they want to do some formation flying with my B-17 - you never know.

We took our tandem out for a veggie & strawberry run today, ended up with 42.75 miles, came back with about 6 quarts of strawberries, some purslane, some amaranth greens, two wicked big zucchini, and asparagus, totaling about 30 lbs. Not a bad haul. Of course some of the strawberries didn't handle the bumps all that well so we had to do something with them when we got home....

A rest at the Robbins House in Concord on the way out:


A rest in Belmont on the return:


Something concocted with the berries, homemade non-dairy ice cream:


There was some beer involved too, just no longer visible for pictures.

Just a little 50 miler around the valley I live in.

Typical views although normally there's more snow left on the mountains, bad winter.



Today's steed was the Serotta CSI.

I Haven't been getting out as much as I should but I was determined to get out early this morning before the humidity really got bad. Just out around the area on the Cornelo



Back home after about 20 miles. My new helmet and gloves.

Good to see @Bianchigirll posting that Cornelo on the road.

Me, I have no idea where I rode yesterday. Somewhere in Portland OR. Many nice Forum members to guide us out-of-towners.

If there had been a cue sheet, it would have rivaled War and Peace.

My sweetie and I took a walk through Great Meadows Wildlife sanctuary this morning and the plan was that afterwards I would go for a ride. So I did.

I rode the PFN10 because it was all ready to go after its commute duty this week. And, um, it's a sweet bike too.



Unfortunately that tire, a sew-up, hanging under the saddle doesn't hold air. It started the ride on the front wheel. I had decided to ride through downtown Waltham as a direct route to some nice roads in Lincoln and Concord. About a mile and a half from home that tire went Pfft...fft...fft...fft... Dang. A tiny hole right in the middle of the thread. Fortunately I carry two spares. Did a quick swap, rode on. Unfortunately too the spare didn't stick to the rim as uniformly as one might wish so it went clickity-click, clickity-click, clickity-click for the rest of the ride. Between the noise and the heat (mid-80's) and my fatigue from yesterday I didn't push the distance as far as I wanted. I ended up with only 23.9 miles. Not bad, but I was tired.

I seem to have lost some of my youth. If any of you find it on the side of the road anywhere, please send it back to me. Or post it in the For Sale Or Trade thread.

Jim - that job you still commute to - it exists so you can buy new tubulars for your outstanding bikes. Far better than: Pfff...pfff...fff...ff..

Thanks for the compliment and the advice. I will eventually send it off to TireAlert for a new tube. I've fixed a few tubulars myself and decided my time was worth more than that!

In fact, I will be ordering some new tires for the Gazelle I am building up. My current choice for wheels is older GP4's which I will string up onto first-gen Shinano hubs, then Veloflex Criteriums.

But yeah, every time I ride tubulars, especially to work, I think how I'm risking another TireAlert fee. Sometimes it catches up with you.

@jimmuller, The Peugeot is lovely. Such a nice color, too.

Re the flat tubular, do you not carry or have you not tried sealant? In cases like this, a tiny hole in the middle of the thread...clean the puncture, a few squirts of sealant, pump it up, and off you go again. No hassle with tire removal, no worrying whether the spare will roll during rest of the ride, back on the road in a jiffy, plus time and money saved not having to replace and re-glue the tire. As a regular tubular rider, I consider sealant a must, and one of the great modern improvements to my own personal cycling enjoyment.
