A short errand day. But nothing short of fun riding...

It was over to the post office to check on what it’d cost to ship a set of calipers to Canada.[QUOTE]


If you know the destination city code (Canada) or zip code (USA), you can Calculate A Price on USPS.com.
It is accurate and lists the shipping options.

Yesterday, I got out for 26 mile loop up Tunnel Road in the Berkeley hills--my first day back on a bike in a few weeks following busy holidays and a minor surgery on my leg (removing some screws). Today, I followed up with 33 mile loop from Berkeley north and around the backside of Wildcat Canyon Road and through Tilden Park. It felt nice to back back on a bike--even if I'm a little out of shape and carrying a few extra holiday pounds.

I took a small diversion at the beginning of the ride, in order to stop for a quick photo in front of this Mondrian-inspired storefront. A fitting backdrop for my Look.



Then just one more pic on the climb up Wildcat Canyon on the way back into Berkeley.

First road ride of the new year!

We have had an unseasonably warm last couple of days here in Northern Illinois. Today was in the upper 40s, and I got out for 33 miles on the 716.

Tried out how this bike deals with a front load, it did pretty well even considering it's stock 56ish mm of trail. Steering was a little heavy, but certainly not unmanageable.

I did get a little beat up on our very rough roads, even with 700c x 32mm tires. I've been riding my 650b x 38mm Velo Orange over most of the winter, and I really nismisthe extra cushion.

As @abshipp noted, it was lovely today south of Cheesehead Land. Rode from Evanston to Hyde Park on Chicago's Lakefront Trail. This was my first ride since the official opening of the separated trail (peds and bikies). Also my first time over the half-finished Navy Pier Flyover. And... My first time using the Wahoo Elemnt Bolt Ellen gave me for Christmas (recorded the round trip as 44.0 miles). The 6˘ cyclocross tires on the Super Sport worked great, splattering mud all over everything on the one little cinder/dirt stretch by Montrose Harbor. Not the cushiest tubulars, but the price was right.

Another mild January day, and a short ride.

across the river...




down the path...




over a field...




pass the stadium...





to the public market where I locked up along side two Super Mirages...





before going inside for coffee, and an almond muffin.

After a work week from hell, it’s all good! Especially when out pedlin’ about town.

And still loving the Rolls. Perfect width, and a very comfortable shape.

Haha, reading your post and then, "Hey! I know that place." I'm a bit farther up the road myself. But, a fellow Oregonian!

64° in January!?

One of the benefits of moving from LI NY to North Carolina is the weather in January we had today. Took a short ride on the nearby Greenway. (Just realized: it doesn't look too "Green" in this shot Took the Cannondale instead of the road bike since the last time I ran this trail it was scattered with rocks and pebbles in some sections; not in the mood for pinch-flats.

Loving the high 60’s temp today as well! Down on the NC coast. Ken from Kingston and I did a nice town and greenway tour. Our greenway has finally been swept of the hurricane mess and they even removed all the mud from the underpass tunnel.

Missed the sun and 50s yesterday, so had to settle for upper 30s, clouds, and wind off the lake.

First ride of the year and first ride since early Sept. 2018. 22 miles up the northshore.

What a great day and much less wind than Saturday. Some pics of the Jacksonville greenway, which was much longer & better than I expected.



We're hoping to grow our Eastern NC Bike Forums member rides & J'ville is a great place to ride. The full ad campaign will be on the regional sub forum

First ride of the season. Kept it down to a 16.5 mile ride to the local bank branch (got paid for a bike job last night).

On my '73 Raleigh Tourist. Didn't feel like getting dressed up in cycling gear for one of the derailleur bikes, and I absolutely love that old rod braked monster.

The levees on Japan's river floodplains can make nice places for peaceful riding. My fellow Canadian and I went for our first ride of the new year using my Gazelle AB and Dawes Atlantis. It was chilly, but we were "rugged up" on a nice, bright January day

Winter riding gear


Stopping for refreshment: red Gazelle AB; blue Dawes Atlantis

A nice ride on a day full of sunshine and pleasant temps on a bike that reminds me of sunshine.

No bike content here. But..........


North Oregon coast, Haystack Rock + Needles. Been a lovely week.


Coulda brought the beach cruiser, but didn’t. Sometimes solitary walks at a PNW beach are spiritual.

Bianchi84 I road those roads of Concord and Kanapolis for 15 years but now live down In Locust about 15 miles south. Go over to Charlotte speedway and ride around the entry road,it's 2 miles around the outside. New Humpy Wheeler and Jeff Gordon well and they let me ride the track several times.

As you've seen from prior posts, weather in Chicago over the weekend was unreal for an early January. Got a chance to get out and get a few miles in on my Raleigh Competition 650B conversion.

OK, not exactly today. Over the holidays I was visiting my hometown and got to do some old rides. Tassajara road, a gravel road which goes from Carmel Valley, CA to Big Sur (sort of), had been closed for a couple years due to fires and drought. Fortunately it is open now so I took advantage. Unfortunately I kind of ran out of time and didn't go as far as I would have liked, but more or less rode to the top at least. Nice views for sure. I was kind of freezing coming back down. Didn't have long gloves, and had to stop 2 or 3 times to warm up my hands enough to use the brakes. It's around 4k feet at the top IIRC.

Entering Los Padres National Forest. Road gets dramatically better at this point.

Took a nice but some what short winter ride around Fairlplay today. I'm getting to really like the Specialized I rescued a while back with the adjustments dialed in it rides 5x better than it should considering age and it is a Tawian frame that was actually built a hair off true, and the 6 speed accushift components and clunky breaks.
