It's become a victim of its own success over the last few years though; unlike Bristol, Bath just isn't big enough to absorb the number of visitors it attracts, especially in the summer season, and it can get unpleasantly crowded. The Clean Air Zone that's recently been introduced will hopefully make it less busy by keeping coaches and HGVs out of the city - the charge has been set at £100 per vehicle per day, and based on my visit (a single visit admittedly, not a large sample) seems to have had an immediate and considerable effect.

Haha, I never flew with Laker's Skytrain, but a few friends did - from what they said a couple of pints before the flight were required. That said I had a flight with TAP in the early 80s on a 707 that was an experience.

67 miles in 3:42:20. Not bad for a 69 year old rider on a 43 year old bike:

Spring is definitely here!

Last ride on the '78 Davidson for a while, 32 sunny and breezy miles. It goes back up on the rack and the next bike in rotation gets its turn...

A locally famous biological landmark in front of the Lincoln Town Library.

Jim, I passed through that very intersection this morning, right around 10:15. I didn’t see you! We were on the way to West Concord.

Hmm. I started at 8:20 this morning (a bit chilly) so by then I was probably partway home!

I did see a number of cyclists. After snapping those pics I crossed the road and sat on the front steps of the 1st Parish Church eating a sandwich and listening to someone practice organ while a blackbird sang in the tree by the corner of the church. It was a treat. You might have ridden by and seen me but not recognized me because I'm a year older than I was this time last year.

I do hope you enjoyed the ride!

Yes, much enjoyment was had! Probably the most number of cyclists out there that I’ve seen this year (and I’ve been out most weekends).

Lovely slow 32 mile ramble enjoying Spring


Wouldn't want to take a tumble down this embankment. The raccoons would find you long before any human search party!

This Richard Sachs just fits me perfectly

Several hours well spent!

Took the plastic bike out today but scenery was so good I figured I should share. Same route as last time I posted I believe.

Topped this climb to see a wall of pink apple blossoms. A panorama pic would show them surrounding me.

Just a quick ride to the local surgery for a jab this morning, and back along the sea front.

Feeling fine, but much to my disappointment the 5G signal here is still non-existant.

for the jab. (I got my second Moderna shot a week or so ago.) I prepped my Motobecane for a spin this morning but the weather made me say no. I't been raining all day. So I rode indoors.

42 miles and 4300 ft of climbing. There’s a section in the Santa Cruz mountains between Saratoga and Los Gatos that is lightly traveled. It makes a great weekend ride. Plus there a short section (2 miles) of dirt to test out the bike off road. I couldn’t resist taking a picture with the pay phone in it (top of the hwy 9 climb).

Took advantage of the once-monthly Silent Sunday on South Mountain in Phoenix. On the 4th weekend of the month the Summit Road is off-limits to vehicular traffic from park opening to closing. This was the first time ever I was able to grip it and rip it on the descent - which was an amazing thrill.

Some pics:











7 miles to the summit, 1500' of elevation gain. A short 14-mile exercise during which I unfortunately lost a chainring bolt. Gotta get a replacement before the next outing!

Quick ride around town on the Basso. Probably one of the last days for views through the trees before the leaves come in.



Looking west toward the Blue Ridge from Observatory Hill on UVA Grounds.

Too nice not to ride, so pumped up the tires on the Serotta for its first outing of the season. Also my first ride in short sleeves this year.



I quickly realized that when first building it up I borrowed the wheels from my Frejus Tour de France just to have something to roll on, rode a few times, then hung it up for the season. The TdF has a half-step setup, so isn't really appropriate for the Serotta with its 52/42 chainrings. No matter, it was still a great day for a ride.

Awesome, glad you got to do that on your visit this time! It's something I've been meaning to do, but never actually get around to doing. I've done plenty of hiking on the trails there with the dogs, and even mountain biking, once. It was way too intense for me. People come from all over the world to bike those desert trails, though.

They actually expanded the event in 2018, and now every Sunday is Silent Sunday, at least until 10 in the morning. And really, for most of the year, you'd want to be home well before then to avoid dying of heat stroke. Judging by the angle of the sun in your pictures, you took full advantage of the one day a month when cars are banned all day.

First ride of the year in shorts! 25 nice miles on my track bike.

Could have done with a bit less wind though...I thought I could hide from it on the bike path but nothing really stops 20+mph

47 miles north, post-trabajo. Insanely windy, upper 50s.



Some brave souls getting an early start on tans.



Stopped by Billy Corgan's house, but he didn't seem to be home.
