Caltrans cleared a bunch of homeless encampments in Berkeley forcing the inhabitants to scatter along the nearby trails. Got a flat and found new meaning to "Watch for the fork in the road".

Short 13 miles on my Trek 716 after work.

I felt really cooped up in the office today, so it was great to spin my legs tonight.

Another Middle Fork ramble..

Ahhh springtime, the tree leaves are beginning to open and the funky smell of Skunk Cabbage is in the airÖ.

Skunky funk by NBend, on Flickr

I got a late start this morning and decided to see if the forest service roads beyond the Middle Fork Road were free of snow.

Big Leaf Maple by the Middle Fork Road by NBend, on Flickr

The pavement ends at about milepost 12 and I start to climb up a fairly rough forest service road.

The pavement ends abruptly and the climbing begins. by NBend, on Flickr

Itís quiet out here, the sun is out and I have the place to myself.

One final climb before I get to the trail head. by NBend, on Flickr

The road is gated about 18 miles from the turnoff onto the Middle Fork Road. I ride around the gate and pedal to the bridge over Dingford Creek. This is my turn around point. The falls thundering loudly behind me as I take this picture.

I eat the lunch I had packed then head back home.

The ride back was easier, it's mostly downhill. by NBend, on Flickr

The road is clear of snow. Time to start thinking of coming back for a soak in the Hot Springs about 4 miles past my turn around point.

Got home a while ago from a beautiful 18.45 mile ride (with Strava enabled on my phone) to try it out. Excellent smartphone app!!!


Here's the proof from Strava:



Here's my old LG smartphone from Verizon clipped into a holder that I fastened down onto the steering stem:



Lastly, my wife just took this photo of me in the backyard, as I just was going to park the bike by our outdoor patio:
(Sorry... No "kit" for me. I'm proud to be "old school" and/or viewed as a Fred. I just wear what I wear... Black surfer shorts,
lightweight sports shirt (from Richmond's 8K (5 mile) section of the Marathon that I ran a few years ago), and of course,
a yellow safety vest, as I don't want to end up as another statistic in the news!)

Shorts and a t-shirt weather! Finally!

27 miles on my Trek after work today.

I never see anyone out riding around my area, and I ran into two today.

Same bike, different day:

Little bit of single track in Glen Cove. Those are the power lines that took out Bill Graham.

Yesterday was a ride I call "The Day of the Dead". Left Oaks, PA on my Nishiki International (first ride on that one since last August). GREAT bike. Rode the Schuylkill River Trail east to Manayunk then 3/4 mile on Main Street. I swung right onto the rejuvenated Pencoyd Bridge then up the hill. Here's where the Dead comes in. After a short accent I turn into the West Laurel Hill Cemetery. West Laurel Hill does not mind cyclists quietly touring the grounds so I usually take the perimeter road counter clockwise thru the monuments and tombstones. Ever so quiet so I can hear if there are any 'bumps'. Out the west side to Bala Cynwyd Park (are you detecting a lot of Welsh names around here?). Skidder thru a quiet neighborhood to the top of the Cynwyd Heritage trail then a long coast all the way back to the SRT. But on this lovely warm spring day I stopped about halfway down that slope to eat my picnic (PBnJ and two carrots). Calm, warm, relaxing and quiet. Deathly quiet as on one side is West Laurel Hill Cemetery and on the other is Westminster Cemetery. And in days of yore this gulch was a rail line into industrial Manayunk so no one has ever lived there. Ergo - "the Day of the Dead". A very nice destination, eating lunch and watching folks going up and down the trail.

Back on the slope then connected to the SRT and west towards the car. Out of the ordinary (most of our weather comes from the west) I had an excellent tail wind going west. The bike went 5 to 6 mph faster in places than the trip east. When I returned to "the hairpin" at Oaks I rode the extra 4 mile round trip to Port Providence, just to pile on some miles. 47mi when I hung the bike back on the car. Great day and great to see so many folks out using the trails on a weekday.


"There wasn't a breath in that land of death"


All us old retired folks out enjoying the warm sun.


Spring is well and properly sprung along the Perkiomen Creek

Went for more doughnuts today. I do not like to visit the same place on consecutive trips. Four good shops within a 25 mile or less radius.
My brother in law wanted to go along and he's not retired so we went back to Woods via a shorter route. He's a carbonista. Guess who had to carry the coffee and mugs.
Jason is 25 years younger and strong. At least I kept him in sight.

Luck with the weather had actually held up this week, three of four days sofa saw some nice riding. Actually hit 90℉, but with the unusual 29% humidity it was as nice a day as you could want. Here are two pics from Tuesday, field is freshly planted for the spring and summer crop. This entire field and tow others larger were complete losses of cotton crops last year due to heavy rains in November and December. We ended 2018 at 125%+ of our average rainfall.

Just got back from a quick 16 mile round trip from South Philly to Falls Bridge via the SRT. Not as many runners on the trail as I thought there would be on a warm Saturday!

Country roads of Mt. Olive NC for the charity ride part of the NC Pickle Festival. Law (3speedslow) came up from Jacksonville and daughter Liz from Durham. After an all-night rain and threatening skies and a 60% rain forecast we were thankful to have a mostly dry ride, only 4 or 5 minutes of light drizzle when we all were expecting to be riding in full-on rain. We forgot to make a photo until we got home.

^^So much fun! Great company to be with. Probably around 100 people in attendance with 15 or so doing the 25 mile route. More signed up but were no shows.

Looking forward to a repeat ride in Mt Olive next year, 53 miler for sure. Hope for sunshine!

We managed to do our second tandem ride of the year today. 45.9 miles, very pleasant, Bedford to Heart Pond, the Bruce Freeman RT to Chelmsford, down to the south end, back to the pond, back to Bedford.

Having lunch



We met this guy, Alistair I think he said his name was, who'd rigged up a trailer for his kayak. Spent a few minutes talking bikes.



It was a good day.
