Will be a thirty five mile round or thereabouts, but who's counting?

Those pics are bringing back memories of a trip to Porterville I took back in 1990. After a few days, the dust, dry, and brown really did my head in. Still, I would like to revisit some day.

We can't wait to return either.

My wife has a cousin in the area and we are due to visit once the world uprights itself.

Nice bike Brent!

Some unusually nice December weather in the PNW. I got out for about 20 miles close to home this afternoon.

It was even warm enough to ride without gloves.

Not today but Sunday and not a pic from Sunday either, same bike, same place and ride.

14mi. out and back from John B Yeon state park to Cascade locks, one of my favorite rides.

You can't beat the Gorge IMO.

Not far, maybe 25 miles or so, at a leisurely man-about-town pace. I took the high-mileage nag:

I met up with the @Drillium Dude in Fall City today to deliver a Jersey he’d bought and ride the “Red Barn Loop” route with him in the Lower Snoqualmie Valley.

It was really nice to catch up with him while riding quiet country roads. Good for the soul it was.

Thanks Jeff.

GF said it was warm enough for her to ride. Just around the trails, but it was good.

Picked up my jersey from northbend this morning and rode the Red Barn loop in the Snoqualmie Valley with him. But you already know that because he posted about it above!

Matt, thanks for making a hole in the wind on the return leg! My insides thank you. It was fantastic catching up and riding the miles - and the jersey is super-nice, too (and fits perfectly)!

Pics? Of course we have pics!

Here we have an eagle showing us the way:



Some interesting backgrounds on this route:

A perfect day out on the bike!



Now, I still feel uggy so it's off to bed.

Spent a little bit of time filing and crimping on my rear fender since the 32mm tires would rub when I got out of the saddle.

Went out for about an hour and a half around sunset and the little adjustments made a huge difference. Once I get the chainring moved inboard another 4mm or so this should be quiet as a church mouse, as a fixed gear should be

Took only a short ride today some great temps for winter 50's but still a lot of snow and mud. Likely wouldn't post this ride but got a chance to take rare photo of a full heard of deer together.

Yesterday my ride was just to the wine store and the supermarket but I had a great time. It was in the 30s and breezy but the humidity was low, and it was bright and clear. This is the first time I put panniers on the rear rack since I rebuilt the bike. It handled great. It even felt as if maybe the panniers improved the handling.

I didn't take the shortest path. I added a little distance for the scenery. It was about ten miles round trip, though I'm in a hilly area, plus I had quite a bit of weight from the groceries.

My kid and kid-in-law came over to celebrate my (other) daughter's birthday so there were five of us here. Everyone thought I was nuts for riding a bike in that weather but that's how I am.

Not surprised on the slight improvement on handling with panneriers really nice ones often tend to help balance out the rear weight on a bike with a bit of weight and actually improve handling.

I think I need to move. My high point was the view from the Missouri river bridge and it was not worth stopping for a pic.

Found a cool little trail connector to my usual loop. Meant as a walking trail, and too steep and slick for this bike, but still a neat find.

I went no place scenic today, just toodled around town on my three-speed in advance of the forecast storm. I noticed that Northwestern University appears to have a beaver problem near their lagoon though. I do recall noticing a couple beavers in the lagoon during the summer. I suppose they've been moved by now.

Sunny and 60 today! 2 rides - first was errands around town, picked up some supper items at the market, then on to take delivery of supplies for my son’s math class. Teacher gave me an A+ for riding the bike!

Second ride was one of my regular 28 mile routes. Rode my Merckx Century for the second day in a row. It was marketed as a race bike with more relaxed geometry for more comfortable long distance rides. They nailed it - it fits like a glove and takes care of me when I’m going easy and looking at the sights but it will hammer out a tempo and rip down a descent at the flip of a switch. Love that bike!
