Ouch! That sounds bad, but of course not quite as bad as your unfortunate encounter with that dog; heal up soon

Sunbeam Sunrise


Went the back roads to work. Sunrise without the usual air pollution is no where near as spectacular.😷

A 3 hour, 46 mile ride through the Virginia countryside on the trusty Cannondale ST to Mason Neck. Cold, windy, but sunny and just a gorgeous day.



Didn't actually see any of these guys out there, but they are around:

Took a quick ride after work last night, into the dark underbelly of downtown Saint Paul. The idea was to find some nice, artistic backgrounds for another thread that DD started. But things are so stark and nasty down there, and surprisingly crowded! I've never seen so many people out on the trails. In order to get this shot, I had to go off-the-trail where I wouldn't have to worry about traffic.



Not up to my usual standard, admittedly. But there was a strong rotting stench down there, and I didn't want to hang around.

I should be able to get out more this upcoming weekend, to someplace more scenic and less crowded. I hope...

Got out in the rain for a quick sprint on some gravel today! Just popped some Kenda Karvs on my partner's DX-3000 and couldn't resist.

I hopped on the Moto GT and got a quick 16 miles on this afternoon after logging off from work. 80 degrees with a light breeze, and home for dinner with the lovely Mrs. Camjr. I did change the original Selle Italia saddle out for an Origin 8 saddle I had laying around. I was having problems with the old saddle riding back on the rails and not staying put.

Up Mt Scott in SE Portland this afternoon. I am having some fun with the hills. Here's midway up 122nd Ave, looking back and ahead.



Here's a view looking north on Mt Scott Blvd from hear Ridgecrest, just before the descent on Mt Scott Road and 112th Ave.

Mrs non-fixie and I decided to see if we could find some new roads in our area. This was a rather nice one we found.

Bill's Trail is a forested path that was built over 30 years ago in Samuel Taylor State Park. It climbs a few hundred feet in two miles. Five years ago, after lots of lobbying from the local bike advocates, the park service announced that it would be opened to bicycle use. Then they closed it to everyone for some improvements. Those improvements took 5 years. Finally, today it was opened to bikes. I rode it on my off-topic MTB early this morning. I won't say that I never rode it before, but the satisfaction of finally seeing it legal made today's ride special.







The bike is blacked out in this photo to protect the eyes of the innocent. This is the view from the top.

Out riding the area. Compact double for hilly efforts. Specialized Turbo tubulars make it a smooth ride. Nice when the fit actually does feel made-to-order.

Random shots.



Jones Road farm with nice fencing (and land)

Winter flooding prob on the Cedar River

A winter mudslide washed clean with Spring rains

glad to be posting in this thread, with muscles&lungs so as to not require an infernal combustion engine.

30 miles to ride from my apartment to the southern tip of Manhattan, then the northern tip, and home.

From several years ago: early sunrise at Lake Como. On the route of the Giro di Lombardia, and a truly beautiful place to ride a bicycle.

We liked the roads we explored a couple of days ago, so we went back today for a bigger loop.




I had mounted a small front bag on mrs non-fixie's RIH for the COVID-19 lunch:




Said lunch. Smoked chicken with mayonnaise sandwiches, a currant bun, a hard-boiled egg and a glass of biological Chardonnay. The glass, BTW, is made of Plexiglass and came as standard equipment with last year's Anjou Vlo Vintage tickets. Very useful!



We passed some nice towns, such as Harmelen ...



... and Woerden, where we admired the sculpture depicting the 1930's track World and Olympic Champion Arie van Vliet doing a sr place:
