Well harrumph. We have no more snow in this neck of the woods. However it was still cool this morning when I started out.

Time to start riding the western suburbs again. It's been a year or more.

Passing through Concord:


Nice place to stop and eat a sandwich:

Headed towards Long Beach early this morning with a few guys. One had a Vitus TT, Peugeot Triathlon, and I took the Bianchi Krono. 28 miles round trip before each went our separate ways to celebrate Easter with family.

Glad to see you guys are getting some climbing miles in those legs.

Today we had what I really, really, hope is the first warm day to not be followed by bitter cold (mid 40s and windy 2 days ago). Got 40+ miles in on the C40. First time shes been out in months.Realized today that this year marks 25 years for this one, so even though carbon fiber (mostly) probably qualifies in some books for C+V.

Maybe should post this in the eBay thread

Finally, out for some miles in the city. I did my Hipster Trail ride, headed downtown starting at Central Park then beeline down 7th Avenue to the Village and over the Manhattan Bridge. Stopped 3 times to tighten this, flip that, and massage my fenders a bit. Once I made it to downtown Brooklyn I visited my son who was working his shift at a cafe in the DeKalb Marketplace for a snack and iced Americano. First, made sure my bike was securely situated:
Quintessential NYC bike parking. I know, I should have put the u-lock through the rear wheel too. However, I could see it from where I was and kept an eye on it the whole time.


I sure didn't leave my bags and pump outside!

Then it was north to the bikeways along the Brooklyn waterfonrs in WIlliamsburg and Greenpoint. New experience there, a youngish couple swooped into the lane in front of me but didn't really gain any distance. They seemed to have decent handling skills so I didn't mind as long as they kept the tempo up - until he went "whoa!!" and swung to the right with his legs out - I thought he rolled through something wet because I could see spray from his wheels. It kept pinwheeling out and I realized it was his tubeless sealant! She started to slow to keep with him and I had to call out and excuse myself, muttering under my breath about carrying tubes and levers. Who wants to get sprayed with that gunk?

Shortly after, I spotted this and just had to.

Seemed timely.

Continued over the Pulaski Bridge to Long Island City, over the Queensboro Bridge to Manhattan and back uptown. Here I am, in my Easter Bonnet:

iPhone super-wide mode.

All in all a lovely ride on a lovely day. Happy Easter!

Nice Easter morning ride through Woodside, Portola Valley and Stanford, CA area on an older French bike (1959 Terrot). Happy Spring to all.

I'm taking a little vacation in Gold Country (Nevada City, CA). I did the "LeMond Loop" (or Newtown Loop), a short but hilly 15 miles through some scenic farmland. Greg rode a Gitane, too. Temps in the 60s, it was a gorgeous, windless, sunny morning. I'm going to seek out some trails tomorrow.

for you Seattle/PNW folks ...



Both Friday and Sunday, I had to go from point A to point B. Friday, I rode to UW, hopped on the light rail (shown with the red line) and took it as far as Rainier Beach station, then rode the rest of the way. Today, I rode the whole way and shaved 15 minutes off Friday's total time. The light rail is fast, but it's not that fast.

I hit some local trails for a little gravel riding. Just about an hour out & back from Nevada City.

I returned today from a three-day credit card tour, a somewhat spontaneous decision to spend three days on the bike in early spring here in New England. I had actually planned and then cancelled this trip in Dec due to unfavorable weather, but after I learned that a previous commitment today needed to be rescheduled, I went for it. My route took me southwest across the MA/CT border to Willington, CT, on day 1, pretty much due north back into MA, through Amherst and the Pioneer Valley to Orange, MA, on day 2 and then from Orange back to the Boston area today. I wasn’t on a C&V bike, but I’m old, so it sorta counts. Took a few pics on the way.


Contemplated a new vehicle.

Found some respite at the top of a long climb.

Still looks pretty wintery around here.

Lots of lakes in central MA.

Can’t say I wasn’t warned.

This is what the road actually looked like.

Saying my prayers after a few white knuckle descents with strong side winds.

I got out for a nice short ride this evening. It was a busy week, so not much for riding beyond lunchtime Zwift efforts.

Glad to post this thread


Spring is Springing in the valley areas.

No selection - organically or otherwise

Cougar Mt trail. Pretty good uphill whether the road or the trail. Triple chainring helps.

I found another nice trail just outside of Nevada City. A bit more technical, but fun and easily manageable with 32mm cyclocross tubs.

Spent a lovely Spring afternoon riding around some of the local ponds and lakes. There's a series of trails that kinda joins them all together.
Shakedown ride for the new front and rear racks on the Davidson, getting ready (hopefully) for an early June credit card tour:
