I love that area and from time to time I take an online peek at real estate around there. Probably will never happen but one can always dream!

Thanks for the pics.

I need to move to Point Reyes Station. Nice looking town with a great bike shop that knows both new and vintage bikes.

Sunny and clear today, and in the 40s! Rode up through Pittston, PA.




C&V for sale



And then I misjudged some railroad tracks on the way home, with a front load. I fell down. Don't worry; the bike is ok. Rider has a sore rib.
Oh, and the beer is fine too!

Still warm here after a day of rain and fog yesterday. I headed up to the Blue Ridge Parkway, expecting temps in high 40’s , low 50’s and pleased to find mid 50’s. Started off under overcast and gloomy skies but that clear sky off in the distance made its way to me and finished under sunny skies!

What was your ride choice that day? Not clear but looks like the Wilier?

You got it. I was expecting wet roads so I took the aluminum.

Nice car! My dad had an MG Midget that he bought with the money he had saved while in the Seabees in Vietnam. He passed it on to a nephew when I was born who subsequently wrecked it when I was a kid. Rest up after that fall and feel better!

No pix but after watching

Alas it has the horrible looking plastic 'safety' bumpers/fenders which was a requirement of tightened US laws at the time.

As ever with C & V it looks better with chrome (here's a nice example I photographed here in London, UK last summer)

Thru the local woods with my buddy Tim and his KOF Della Santa. Tim had Roland design this bike to ride like his 70's Paramount but with greater tire clearance. Of course Roland nailed it.

That happens to be the last time I was out, too. Rain, then snow, then more rain

Just hoping for a gap in the precipitation at some point...

Both bikes are nice, but that DS is near and dear to me.

I ended up with one by pure good fortune. Pleased to add that it rides great and I am able to run 700x30s.

I have Strada Biancas on it atm and it is on its way to Austin, TX for my visit with family.

God help me if they have goats heads.

Pretty dang cold out today, but sunny and no wind, so I bundled up and got 30 miles in for the first proper ride on the Heron.
