I just completed (I think) the final build of my ‘71 Bob Jackson for Eroica. I did a few checkout rides this weekend.

On Saturday I did some climbing with Page Mill, down West Alpine, back up 84 and West Old La Honda, then down Old La Honda. About 63 miles and 5K of climbing. Today was focused ion getting some pictures for the cue sheet for the SF Peninsula C&V ride on Saturday. Another 40 miles.

The bike performed well. A couple of adjustments were needed after Saturdays ride.

I went with:

Campy NR Triple with 32-46-52. I know there is no such thing as a 32 Campy NR chainring. It was custom.
Regina 14-28 5 speed freewheel
Vittoria Corsa Control 30’s mounted on Fiamme red-labels. If anyone is offended by the black sidewalls, I was being cheap. The black sidewalls were 1/2 the price of the tan sidewalls.
Ideale 90 saddle (I was worried about a French Saddle on an English bike, but it works).

My wife leased space in an office building a short distance from our home for several years. Over time she increased that from one room to five. Two weeks ago we bought the entire building and now have 21 rooms for me to maintain as well as all the common areas, parking, lawn and general improvements. I gave up running with a group that mentors delinquent and at risk teens to do this and it has certainly cut into my cycling time. My shoulder I broke 10 years ago is killing me and while I can't lift another ceiling fan or light fixture over my head, I was able to lift this old Takara off of the hooks on my garage wall to ride it to this spot at sundown.

This morning I took the Austro Daimler to the lake. Barely visible in the background are Ensign 22ft sailboats. This week is the Ensign National Championship Regatta on Lake Superior. I might have gotten a better pic had I gotten down there a little earlier.

As usual there be lots of good pics of good rides.

We took the tandem out yesterday, tried out a few new roads (which I discovered on my solo ride last weekend), ended up with 29.3 miles. The weather was actually cool compared to last week. Can't complain about that.

What is it about bodies of water that make them so attractive?


Of course my sweetie is in stylish color-matching blue.


There is a cormorant sitting on that birdhouse. Couldn't get any better picture.



Water without a bike? What are you trying to pull?


And we had to stop by the library for lunch.

Today Thomas and I rode the tandem from Rattlesnake lake up to Lake Keechelus and back. He's been on my case to to before Cino.Temps were nice, in the low 70s. We had a pb&j at the lake, and then bombed back down the pass. Was a good day(except the drive-in on the way home was out of onion rings).



The remains of the snowshed built over the railway back in 1910.

The tunnel was pretty wet...

I had spent the Saturday fine-tuning mrs non-fixie's Koga-Miyata and building my Union, hoping to get them ready and good enough for next week's trip to Germany, so Sunday was shakedown day.

A 60k round trip in the Utrecht area, the heart of our country:




The former Soesterberg airbase. Home of the USAF 32 Tactical Fighter Sqn between 1954 and 1994:



The weather was nice, so everyone was out on their e-bikes. Normal bikes are falling out of fashion faster than you can say "triple crankset". A typical watering hole for cyclists in Amerongen:



Our route even contained some strade bianche:



The Koga-Miyata performed well, and got a clean bill of health from its owner:



And I was quite pleased with how the Union turned out, although the low gear of 38" might prove to be a little tall-ish for Eroica:

Has it been only seven years? We look so young and fresh in that picture.

As always, many thanks to everyone for posting such wonderful sights! My favorite place to visit on the internet.

This is annual Spaghetti Legs family beach week in NC. The Ritchey gets boxed up and stuffed in the car with wife, boys, dog, and swim trunks. I remembered everything but the Garmin and my guitar 😒. There is usually a stiff breeze from the east or west here and only one road to ride on, so half of any ride will be with headwind. Today however, there was a little southerly to it so the outbound leg wasn’t as much of a slog as normal. I rode out to the eastern tip of the island, Fort Macon, which used to guard the entrance to Beaufort Inlet.



Beaufort Inlet - Blackbeard’s ship, Queen Anne’s Revenge was sunk out in those waters early 1700’s.

Fort Macon. The flag, fortunately points the way home, meaning 15 miles of tailwind!

On Sunday I enjoyed the National Mall and Hains Point via teeny folding bike! Return trip via DC Metro. 18.5 miles total. Next time I will bike to Navy Yard, Kenilworth Gardens, and Bladensburg Memorial Park via the Capital Crescent Trail, National Mall, and Anacostia Riverwalk Trail.

I continued the Vintage Folding Bike Chronicles today at Rock Creek Park. I took Wisconsin Avenue's surprisingly gorgeous sidewalk past Walter Reed to a Rock Creek Trail spur and continued east/south to East West Highway. I then returned home via Jones Bridge Road, passing the HHMI. It was quite muddy (and wet - lots of trail puddles), but thankfully the strong knobby tires of the folder held up well and I only needed five or six ply paper towel to wide the mud splotches off.

That's a familiar route to me though it was quite a long time ago that I used to ride it. My wife and I lived near the Grosvenor Metro stop, and most mornings I'd ride with her on Rock Creek Trail to the NIH, where she was a postdoc. I can remember her falling one time because of all the mud on the trail! I'd then head north on the trail, exploring whatever I had time for. Lots of fun riding!

Nice! As your wife was, I am a NIH postdoc. I take this bike to work when it's not pouring. Sounds like you had some great times. One day I will bike up past Grosvenor and maybe all the way to Gaithersberg or Germantown.

Alex and myself took in the scenic John Wayne/Iron Horse Trail from Hyak trailhead to Cle Elum - where we had lunch at Smokey's BBQ - and back. Perfect primer for Cino at 66 miles, even though we didn't get much in the way of elevation change. Not too warm, but the wind was in our faces but good on the return when exposed! Lots and lots of photos, but I'll just share ten here. Btw, we both decided that the bikes we rode today will in fact serve as our respective Cino rigs. I just need to swap the front tire to a 25 to match the back and I'm all set.

Yesterday, I rode to Michigan. The intent was to ride from Evanston, IL to Covert, MI, and I'd have made it (I think) except for a couple logistic errors and a train.
  • I overslept and got out the door about an hour late.
  • The tail end of my route from about Michigan City really had no place to get water or snacks.
  • I was delayed in Highland, IN by a bunch of railcars blocking the grade crossing (finally walked around them).
Still, I managed to get to about the 110 mile mark before bailing out and calling Ellen to come and get me. Total distance was about 114 miles.

Most of the first 75 miles of the ride was actually on separated trails, the Lakefront Trail in Chicago, Beniac Greenway and Erie Lackawanna Trail in the Hammond, IN area, the Oak Savannah Trail between Griffith and Chesterton, and the Calumet Trail in the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore (now National Park as I understand it). They had some caveats of their own. Oak Savannah (in particular) crosses a lot of surface streets, so you slow down and speed up quite a bit, cutting into cruising speed. The Calumet Trail is a rough trail which is pretty hard on bike and rider (I was riding 700Cx32 smooth Gravel Kings on my Eisentraut - wider would have helped). Given that it parallels both the Dunes Highway and the road right along the lake in Beverly Shores, I will try to remember to route myself along one of them next time. That's one of the few times to prefer roads with cars to trails without them, I think.

I had a recommendation to take CR 1000N (eastbound) in far northern Indiana to Cleveland Ave (northbound), then to St Joseph, MI. From a traffic perspective they were fine, but golly Bullwinkle, there was zero commercial activity at all until I reached Galien, MI, and the only place to get "food" there was a Marathon gas station at US-12. My last water bottle fills were in Beverly Shores (didn't think to stop for a break in Michigan City), so I was nearly out of water when I reached Galien (had downed the contents of 11 or 12 water bottles by that point). Next time I will return to my usual zig zag route between the Red Arrow Hwy and Lake Michigan.

I did take some pictures...

Really nice ride day with only a bit of haze can actually see some blue sky. Went on a nice semi regular ride on the no name rock quarry trail a few miles out side of Fairplay.

I'm not one of em that gets to ride through great scenery all the time, like many of you. Most of my riding is just for cardio and some peace and quiet. We have a lot of trails that have keep me away from cars and trucks and in a lot of shade but many just follow extinct or still active railroad beds, some through parts of towns that were not considered elite neighborhoods. Those are changing slowly but thats life. This ride was right after a thing called Fred climbed through central Pennsylvania. I was on the eastern edge so not much damage but lots of rain so lots of run off - mud, water, gravel, stones, rocks, junk. It'll get cleaned up but I had to watch myself. I decided to take the Mule as it had been a while since we rolled together. Very nice bike, even when not loaded for touring. Simple shot along the SRT with an active rail line there thru the bushes. A good day and good cardio.




BTW, that front rack was on its way to the furnace when I grabbed it as I have the time and talent to fix things. Sturdy and it has worked nicely. Now that I also have front panniers I'm looking forward to another tour. Erie Canal? Hmmm.

Did another piece of the Schuylkill River Trail today, heading west to Pottstown from Valley Forge.
Unfortunately we did not notice on the map that a big chunk was only "proposed," and for 7 miles each way we found ourselves on some busy 55 mph roadway with crappy, rumble-stripped shoulders.
We survived, altho I did take a hit to the chest by a trail barrier that jumped out in front of me. Ouch.





The barrier that attacked me.

^^^^^^ You were just a bit ahead of the game. After ages of planning, they actually started on that "proposed" section this summer. Should extend the trail from Parkerford to Rte 422. Yes, they are laying pavement. Rumors are that they will be done by the end of of the year. They've sure had the weather for it. There will still be a gap to Pottstown, about 1 mile. The workaround will still be Rte 724, but not posted 55mph.

BTW, how'd you like that hill in Phoenixville? Wicked for me but I've not walked it yet.
