Bruises on the bike only, I hope, yes?

Did you go by the Hasgas Store a few miles out of West Dorset? I always liked their sign--thought for years that it was someone's name but finally got the joke.

Yesterday my better half had an appointment nearby a farm offering ‘pick your own raspberries.’ Between the appointment location and the farm is a trail system I’ve been meaning to explore a bit more by mountain bike. Perfect.

This weekend we visited my wife's cousins in Central NJ to meet our new niece. They live in a lovely area surrounded by blueberry, tomato, corn and other vegetable farms. I availed of the opportunity early Sunday morning to take the Gitane Super Corsa on a fast 34 mile spin through the mostly quiet roads and farmland. A gorgeous morning on a great weekend.

Sure did! We ride that route often as it's about as flat as it gets in Vermont and my wife prefers it that way. The southern half of Dorset West Road has been repaved, smooth sailing! Can you recommend other flat-ish locations I should take her?

Hot day at 91° but no smell of smoke and ash in the air so I decided to ride home.

Bianchi Giro and tried out the new jersey.






This steed was running on the river bed.

Well, it's the opposite of flat, but if you continue past Dorset on the Dorset West Road and bear left on 315 at the four-way intersection, you can do a really outstanding climb over Rupert Mountain and down into the village of Rupert. It's a great descent.

For a flatter ride, try Route 313 from Arlington to Cambridge, New York. It's a fairly well-traveled two-lane road, but pretty riding along the Battenkill with some rolls but no significant hills. If you want to ride a pleasant gravel road, turn off onto the River Road a mile or so after 313 heads west from Arlington. It's very nice and shady with pleasant river views, parallel to 313 but on the other side of the river. It takes you past Norman Rockwell's house in West Arlington, then crosses the river and rejoins 313 a mile or so further along. (That's from memory, so the distances may not be just right). Cambridge is kind of a pleasant little town.

For another slightly hilly but very nice ride, you can turn north right after you cross the Vermont-New York state line on 313. That will take you to the West Sandgate Road at a 4-way intersection. It takes you through a really cool hairpin called The Notch and connects you to the Sandgate Road leading back to West Arlington. The whole thing makes a nice loop (maybe 10 miles? Can't remember exactly) that starts and ends in West Arlington. Check it out on google maps and it will all make sense, I think.

Hmm, not sure I've ridden Rupert Mountain. If I did it was over 35 years ago I enjoy Battenkill Road/River Road. It's close to where we stay and it's a really pleasant ride, especially River Road. I was on it twice two weekends ago. First ride included a little loop north, then the next day I did one of the classic VBT rides from Sunderland down to North Bennington, over to Cambridge where I had a really good creemee (payback for the hill on Niles Road), and back 313/River into Arlington. I considered taking Sandgate Road, I haven't gone there yet. We'll be back twice more before it gets cold.

Just realized my pics are backwards. Did a setting reset a few days ago and forgot to change the settings. Anyways quick 7 mile ride back to work this morning. Hint of smoke in the air but nothing to worry about.

Used the basket case Mirage for its intended purpose: going to the store!



The P100 respirator makes it so you can’t smell the smoke. It also makes it so you can’t ride up much of a hill. Maybe an e-bike isn’t such a bad new-normal investment?



Success! Gallon of milk, 6 pack of beer, jar of peanut butter, fruit snacks, bottle of bourbon. The weight made the front wheel stop clicking. I think it’s a spoke. Back on the stand with it!

^^^ Thats a good looking Moto Bacon. Simple and elegant.

Today I explored Dick Woods Road. This is mostly known to locals as a two lane 45/55 mph road in Western Albemarle County, but I’ve noticed signs for it in remote areas of the county. It stretches from Afton Mountain through rolling farmland and vineyards to the community of Ivy. About 8 miles of it are gravel.



Notice the dropped chain. I shifted to small ring to go back up the hill for this pic, dropped the chain and fell over. No harm done tho.

Blue Ridge - Skyline Drive up there where a lot of my pics here are shot.


Lost bottle, as found during pic stop. I decided to keep it.

I did about 22 miles to the REI store just to pick up some bike grease. it was my longest ride I have done, maybe in my life.
I got "back on the bike" last fall, but just little rides to have coffee with the wife, nothing longer than 5 miles, then in July this year I went for a ride in the morning and for some reason got the bug, decided I would begin riding every day. We have a MUT right by the house that is a fun ride and I have been stretching it out as I feel like it. usually doing about 8-10 miles. Last week I did 15. I saw that REI was about 10.5 from the house and I used the excuse that I needed some bike grease to do that, so I set a goal of doing 20 miles. I know that most of you, from reading your posts, would think 20 miles was not a big deal, but for me it was a goal. It went OK, but I found my knees acked by the time I got back home. (I am 65) so we will do a few more 15s then do another 20, work up to 30 then a 40. New goal, do a 50-mile day by next spring.

You rule, man! Nice work! I predict that you will take that 50-mile ride in due time.

Maybe your aching knees are a result of your saddle being tad too low. Of course, a lot of other things can cause aching knees, too. And sometimes there isn't any cause--they just ache for no reason.

Thanks for the encouragement, and I did think about saddle height. The next ride I will raise it a tad and see how that works.

The saddle on my Raleigh International was a bit low, but I didn’t notice until I rode >15 miles. Right across the front of my knee.

One more test ride before I hand it over to its owner. Getting used to riding around in a respirator.



This bike makes two sounds that I sort of love: 1) the reflectors in the Lyotard pedals rattle constantly, and 2) the textured steel rim sounds like a card in the spokes when you apply the back brake. Fun little bike.
