I used to have an Airborne Valkyrie, next level down from the Zeppelin. It was a very nice, well made bike. I was sorry to see that company go away. Different from the Airborne that you see around now.

Worked all day today but got out on the road yesterday on the Gios Compact. Somewhere a switch was flipped and we went from hot humid weather to (finally!) crisp air and blue skies. These pics are at the top of Burnt Mountain road outside Batesville, VA. Blue Ridge Mountains are stretching away to the north. I’m gojng to come back up here in a couple of weeks and get some fall color pics. This is an apple orchard BTW.

Tour de West Side - Saint Paul

The sun refuses to make an appearance this weekend. It is actually 31°F and SNOWING as I type this!
But yesterday, as promised, I rode Velo de Ville down the hill and into the old West Side of Saint Paul.

This is a peculiar area, because as you ride through it you can tell it used to be a bustling small community in its own right. Many of the apartment buildings and some of the houses are just repurposed businesses and municipal facilities.


Here's the old Firehouse, now turned into some fairly eclectic apartments.


An old gas/service station now abandoned... the perfect home for a gearhead or bicycle collector.


Here and there we find small (tiny!) businesses hanging on by their fingernails.


The storefront of "Capital Deals" bicycle boutique. Owner Alex sells local brands like Surly, along with many other non-mainstream marques. He has a respectable inventory of lugged-steel classics as well. Recently, however, he has become an e-bike enthusiast...


"Home Street Home" used to be a popular food truck. They have ceased their wandering ways in favor of this charming little street corner cafe. The Bleu-Stuffed Burger here is sublime!


As we near the bottom of the hill, closer to the river, we come upon some well-established local institutions. Here the new West Side Summit school occupies part of the ancient Saint Matthews Church.


Boca Chica Mexican Restaurante on Cesar Chavez Blvd. That is some serious artwork there on the wall.


Riding back up the hill, I come across a few of these little free libraries. I need to remember to bring some books with me next time...


My dream home for retirement: I picture an Airstream like this perched on top of an aquifer in the high desert of the American Southwest. Someplace like Pahrump, Nevada maybe? Owner Marcello was kind enough to let me lean my bike against his restoration project for this photo.

It was a nice ride, despite the weather. As a casual, amateur historian I find places like this fascinating. I wonder what this place was like back in the 1950s, when all the Mom & Pop shops were flourishing. I have vague childhood recollections of riding my old Stingray to little stores and buying candy and ammo for my BB-gun with my allowance. Kids these days don't know what they're missing...

Rode today with a new friend I met a couple of weeks ago. Pretty similar riders. We did 42 miles on some of the back roads here on the eastern shore of Maryland/Delaware. He is new to this area and I have been riding the roads here since 1977. Really enjoyed it.

Stopped in an resale shop. Although repurposed into a lamp, this candlestick phone caught my eye

I'm a day late, but I did 19 miles yesterday morning on the old '74 Motobecane now that I've solved the creaky bottom bracket issue. I started in the very dark, pre-dawn hours with low clouds and no moon. IT WAS DARK. On top of that, my taillight batteries died right about the time the light was coming up. You can see how faint the flashing light is in these shots taken on a break about 15 miles in.

On Saturday, we took our tandem to the hardware store and the food coop, combining fun with errands. Before going, I turned around the captain's seatpost because the geometry of the bike puts the saddle way too far back. With the seatpost turned around, the saddle is in the right position, but of course, the nose is tipped up too high. It wasn't all that comfortable, but it was tolerable for that 13-mile ride. I was able to pedal harder. A couple of weeks ago, I had upgraded the drivetrain from 3x7 to 3x11. I asked my wife what she thought of the upgrade, and she said it seems easier to pedal. Um, I don't think so. I think she was noticing that I was pedaling like mad, making the job easier for her. Oh well, at least I get to love the new rear derailleur and shifter and cassette. I'll be getting a new seatpost which will allow me to have the right position and the right tilt.

Just a quick spin around the neighborhood before I have to get back to my school bus for the afternoon routes....

7.75 miles in 30:50 for an avg speed of 15.1 mph.... Not too bad, considering I haven't ridden in a few weeks (I was on vacation in San Diego seeing my new baby granddaughter (i.e. see my thread in the "Foo" off topic forum).
Greeting from San Diego, CA!

I haven't been out on my SLT in a while, and tonight was a nice night with fairly light winds and warm-ish temperatures. About 58° when I started and probably around 55° at the end.

It is starting to look a little bare out in the country with the corn being 75% harvested, but there are a few fields that haven't been cut yet.

19 miles at a surprisingly quick 17mph average.

I really love how this bike shines, but man is it difficult to get a good picture when the sun is low!

But that gleam is an integral part of this bike's charm. Nice shot!

Two days ago I decided to take advantage of a day free of prior engagements to take the MetroNorth train from Yonkers up to Poughkeepsie, NY. The weather was cool and the skies were sunlit, ideal for a nice solo ride on a "new-to"me" route. After arriving at the station at 8:45AM I headed west across the Walkway Over the Hudson into Ulster County then on to New Paltz which is the gateway to the Shawangunk Mountain Region. I passed through the uber cool, college town of New Paltz which was founded by French Huguenots in that late 1600's. On Huguenot St. still stand many of the original structures and homes. Great history and area for meandering but that is for another day. Instead I headed north then west to Mohonk Mountain Preserve then skirted Minnewaska State Park and back into the Shawangunk Wine Trail before heading back to catch the 1:50PM train to arrive home before 4PM. IThere were some rough gravel paths and trails that I anticipated also. The Gravelkings proved their worth. Very little traffic, a great egg salad sandwich at a farm stand, a mountain spring to fill up my water bottles and wonderful scenery made the day brilliant. 60 miles on the loop and 10 miles to and from the train.

Nice reports, nice pics, everyone.

We've been a bit busy lately but managed to take the tandem out today, two laps of the Nashua River Rail Trail. Great autumn air, nearly empty trail, lots of leaves on the ground.

We both had to take pics of each other



Clock in Pepperell. I love these vintage-style decorative clocks, though this one isn't really vintage.


The northern end in Massachusetts, though the trail goes further for a short distance


The trail (almost) ends there for a reason.


The old stone boundary marker beneath that boundary sign
This side, D (Dunstable), Massachusetts


The other side, N (Nashua), New Hampshire


Just one of the many water crossings


Exactly what was the name of that brook anyway?


Another of today's sights

A great day, 46.5 miles.

What kind of snake is that? It seems to have a triangular cross-section, thus leading me to believe it to be something a little more rare/perhaps venomous? than a garter snake.

I'm not a wildlife expert (have little experience with wild life) but we think it is a common eastern garter snake. Not venomous, doesn't match any of the four venomous snakes in the US (rattlesnake, cottonmouth, coral snake, or copperhead). It did appear that its body was flattened against the ground. Sharon guessed that it was attempting to absorb heat. Today's high temp was about 60F. But that's just a guess. We actually saw three of them today.

That is most certainly an eastern garter snake. Good guess Jim!

Short ride on Clark's Creek Greenway - Concord, NC. It's starting to get a little chilly in the mornings now. Brakes started squealing for the first time in a long time - maybe the cold? Might have to sand them down.
