He's an athlete but not much of a cyclist. He had a little trouble keeping up, and he went over the handlebars at one point but didn't get too banged up. Andy's pictures are the best, so I won't post any of my crappy pictures.
Moderate is a good description. It isn't the kind of trail you can jam on, but the group rode at a pretty good clip and nobody was laying back. The young man only lacks skill. At one point on the return he came up to a turn where I was waiting. He expressed surprise at seeing me, saying "How did you get here?" (Considering he spent most of the ride behind me, I don't know why he asked) I thought for a moment and realized that he is less than half my age and all I had on him is 46 years of experience :-) I said, "I practice a lot."

Thanks for the nice comment on the pictures, Tom. They did come out nice. I really enjoyed that ride, I'll be back on the trail next season, for sure.

repeat yesterday ride

I did the same ride I did yesterday with the same bike, Schwinn super-sport. I had an issue with the left crank arm bolt backing out and I babied it back to my home. Took the crank arm off and did not see anything wrong. I put it back on and tightened it really well. No problems with it today. Not near as many people on the Bethany Beach boardwalk and nearly empty beach. It is Monday off season and the wind was blowing from the NW with gusts into the mid 20mph. I am leaving for Loves Park, Illinois, my home town, on Thursday the 1st to visit my siblings that still live there and especially to visit my 89 year old Mom, still in good health and very content in her older years. I am taking one of my bikes and the Schwinn Super-sport is my 1st choice for this trip. It is a really good all around bicycle. There are a lot of miles of paved and crushed limestone type trails, also numerous state and local parks to ride in. I will have a couple of days to play with in case I have good weather and want to stop somewhere on the way back to Delaware. I put the back bike back on my stand this afternoon and adjusted the brakes, rewrapped the bars, lubed the chain and checked the rest of the bike. I believe it is ready to go when I am.

Saturday and yesterday (Oct 27 and 28), I attended the Philly Bike Expo and hung out with @KonAaron Snake. I had a good time there and met a lot of good folks from the industry and saw the neat stuff there is out there. Yesterday, Aaron and I rode from Media, PA to the convention center and then back in the evening, 17 miles each way. Nice riding over rolling hills, and I got to see a lot of what makes Philadelphia what it is, both the good and the bad. I feel I got a clear sense of it.

Here is a street shot of West Philly, with Aaron in the bike lane.

Thanks for coming Tom! Both of us were on distinctly un-c/v bikes.

Ill do rough stuff next year if yall will have me.

You're right, that those carbon fiber frames and modern parts made no nods to C&V, but it didn't even occur to me. I'm not overly invested emotionally into the C&V gestalt. I just happen to have a bunch of old bikes.

You should come to Ruff Stuff next year, because if you don't, you'll miss out on a great time, and that would be a shame.

Got to take a nice fall ride to Thompson National Park yesterday likely the last ride for a while without snow on the roads or trails.

42 miles out thru the citrus groves of Fillmore and Santa Paula, CA. Foggy and damp at the start, low 60s, but the sun popped out and I got a few pictures. Not exciting fall scenery, but a fun ride, rolling hills, wind in the face. Its all good on the old Peugeot.


'78 Peugeot among the modern carbon.

South Mountain Road, heading west, used a lot in the Amgen Tour of California. Not much shoulder for riding.


Riding thru the citrus.

Just past Franklin Canyon Golf course.
I traveled up Windmill, right on Goat rd to Vista trail. Then Canyon loop, steep, down Woodland, awesome, then over to Whipsnake trail, which has some areas trampled up pretty good by the cattle.

I like the color of your 78 Peugeot,SS.^^^ I had some time after work to get in a 13 miler. Looked for opportunities to capture some foliage.

Thanks for the info @curbtender. I don't get out on the gravel much, but I should really change that.

I just rode my regular commute--a relatively short (4+ miles), but hilly route to the top of the Arlington, where I'm rewarded with some nice sunrise views of the SF Bay (a peek at Golden Gate Bridge if you look closely).

I have a 10 mile loop I do around the very small town of Locust NC. Some pictures around where I live. My Super Sport next to my old 04 Mustang. The building with the columns is two blocks from my apartment
and is the town offices and police department. Almost impossible to find a place to rent in this small town. The apartment is brand new. The super Sport was a beat up single speed I bought for $50 when I was flipping bikes
before selling my house in May.
