Thanksgiving day ride. 51 miles, my longest ride in a very, very long time. Rode from Asheville to Black Mountain, and after getting back into Asheville, went a little further northward to get in some additional miles.
Got home, took shower, made dinner, watched Breaking Away.
Looking forward to more, longer rides in the future.

We spent the Thanksgiving weekend driving in cars and sitting inside too much and eating too much. The sky was overcast, and much of the weekend was cold. Yesterday (Sunday), we got some sunlight and warmer temperatures. I put the new old Brooks Pro Womens (S) saddle on the back of the tandem for my wife to try. It's a no-go. After riding a few hundred feet, we turned around and put the original saddle back on. She'll try it once more on her single bike and also experiment with the nose angle, but it may not work.

We rode 11 miles round trip. First, we rode to one of our favorite lunch spots, and then we rode to the food store, and then back to the house. The scenery was lovely. It's so nice to be in sunlight, even if briefly, and it's so nice to move the body. And I'm loving the new gearing on the tandem.

Here are our barns after the ride. The barn on the left is where the tandem sleeps.

Swapped the crankset on my Trek 716 to a SunXCD with Velo Orange 46/30 chainrings. Much more pleasant to ride!

The old gearing was 52/42 with a 13-24 cassette in the back. I really love this old UniGlide hub because it is almost completely silent when coasting, but UniGlide cassettes are pretty pricey, and regardless, I only have one chain whip, so in order to get the gearing to something more reasonable I swapped the crankset. Of course, spending ~$200 in order to avoid changing out a cassette seems a little ridiculous, but I like the close ratios on the back and I wanted to try a "subcompact double".

Very slow 12 miles on a windy fall day. I also forgot to lower my saddle since I went to longer crank arms on the newer crank, but I can't blame my lack of energy and lackadaisical pace on that.

And boy, does my touch up paint look awful.

Professor Andrew pinged me, noting that Sunday should be clear, and reminding me that this might not be true for some time in the PNW. It was cold when we started and stayed cold, but a 45 mile ride up the ridge we call Bald Peak was in order.

Starting in low lying fog we eventually climbed above it. A few higher hills could be seen poking out of the sea of fog.



I was in bad form that day, so this was my typical view while riding.

Home is good! Healing can happen at home. Give it time which is sometimes the best medicine. I understand the crazy feeling when you canít ride.look to the future years you will have when you come back stronger.

Yesterday was very windy and the earth was/is still saturated from a decent amount of rain the previous day. At some point during the work day this tree toppled across the South County Trailway so up and over went the bike and I. I didnít take that route today but I am pretty sure they have cleared it by now.

I always like when you post photos of your beautiful U08. It's the nicest one I've seen.

One question though, and maybe you have answered this before; but what fork is that?

@DQRider Thank you! That is actually the original fork which was chromed under the paint. I just decided to leave it as fully chrome once the paint was blasted off.

Last Sunday I rode out to CX state champs at Bishop's Orchards in Guilford. The course looked brutal -- we had a ton of rain the night before.

















Short ride today before getting this year's tree (that's not it).





I've got enough miles on this to say the fit is good. Time to trim the cables and wrap the bars.

Nice ride! My son moved last year to Greensboro nc, loves the area. He is too busy with his traveling consultant job t to bike much. He was captain of the wet point cycling team in 2003, races at various colleges.

1st ride on new to me 1939 Raleigh Sports Tourist

Lots of nice bikes here! Rode my new (to me) 1939 Raleigh Sports Tourist on its maiden voyage. 4 miles to the post office. Parked and was locking up the bike, the first passerby stopped to chat about "the coolest bike I have ever seen." All original bike in original condition. . The original owner was a nuclear engineer, his son inherited it 15 years ago and just stored in the basement. . Was never stored outside. Was infrequently ridden. The tires dry rotted and stuck to the floor in 15 years. The son put ugly modern ergonomic grips on it, and new tires and tubes. Glad the paint did not rust, guess the basement is dry. The grips got taken off within minutes of getting home. Got the correct NOS 1940's torpedo grips coming from U K..
The three speed was not shifting right. Took the slack out and it operated perfectly.

Those onlookers were right about it being a very cool bike. I do hope you'll find this thread of interest to you, and possibly post yours there?
