Just a great classic bicycle!
I’m coming in to the house and there’s the Motobecane Team Champion hanging on the other stand!
I love this bicycle!
Ideal opportunity to ride these bicycles back to back…get a comparison of these two classics! I wish that my built Motobecane Le Champion was still here…it’s gone to temporary storage…sigh…
I weighed both bicycles…22lbs each!
To make a long story short…Omg! I did another 8.94 miles…no time to do the whole Canal again! The Island side gets real dark, real quick!
The GR handles much quicker, but, the TC’s ride is magical…I have ridden beyond my usual stopping point and past my house many times to get more riding in on this bicycle!
I know that the Le Champion would have favored the GR ride…maybe?
Maybe I’ll slap some good wheels with the Shimano 600 hubs on the Le Champion that is still here…hmmm…
I slapped some good wheels onto the Le Champion that hasn’t left yet…lubed and tune enough it to get around the block…the Le Champion favors the Team Champion ride…chain is skipping like a son of a gun…

Sweet survivor…

Wheels came off of this…

Well, there’s your problem!

Just a little jaunt to the Donkey store (where I got my usual 3 lbs of whole-bean coffee for $20 - great ongoing deal) followed by a quick stop at the Collingswood (NJ) farmers market for some local tomatoes from a Gloucester County farm (Viereck), whose asparagus fields I ride by a few times a year. Peeked in at the Collingswood Bike Share yard, and it seems they are still thriving.



Nice color veggie, complements the guy's shirt.

El Tour De Banos

Riding the Snoqualmie Valley Trail so often it’s hard to find something unique anymore about it to share on BF.
Here’s my latest attempt, presented for those of a “certain age” who find it necessary to plan their routes accordingly :-)
This rail trail is really quite well suited for you. It’s quiet, scenic, flat, and the trail surface is well graded crushed rock. Easily ridable on road bikes. An easy 60 miles if you ride it’s entire length out and back (almost car-free: you cross several road intersections and ride one 2 mile section on a quiet county road).
The trail passes by the towns of North Bend, Snoqualmie, Fall City (off trail about 2 miles), Carnation and Duvall. Each of these towns have some pretty decent options for food and drink.

But what you’ll be most interested to know is there are 6 bathroom stops located trailside…
So without further ado, I present you “El Tour De Banos”

Starting at the southern terminus in the upper Snoqualmie Valley in the park at Rattlesnake Lake, Banos 1.

Up here, the trail is cool and shaded under a forest canopy of mostly second growth Douglas Fir.

The trail opens up as you near the town of North Bend, Banos 2 at Tanner Landing Park for those who’ve had too much morning coffee…

Banos 2 Tanner Landing by Matthew Pendergast, on Flickr

Now a bit of a longer stretch as the trail passes by the towns of North Bend and Snoqualmie. There’s a 2 mile gap in the trail where you have to ride around the Old Snoqualmie Lumber Mill site on a quiet back road. There’s never much traffic here and there’s a little bit of gentle climbing as you access the trail again on Tokul Road. A few miles down the trail is Banos 3 located at a popular parking lot for MTBr’s where the trail crosses 356th Street. There is an extensive trail system created by the Evergreen MTB club up in the Tokul watershed above the trail here…

Perhaps you misjudged your need for a break and now you’re wondering if you can make it to Carnation. No worries, Banos 4 to your rescue at the Griffin Creek Nature Preserve Parking area.

A popular place to stop is Carnation - Sandys bakery is just 2 blocks away from Banos 5 where the trail crosses over Entwistle Road.

Banos 5 Carnation by Matthew Pendergast, on Flickr

Down in the lower valley, the trail is primarily lined with Maple trees. Colors are just beginning to change.

The trees are just beginning to show color by Matthew Pendergast, on Flickr

The trail ends at Banos 6 in the town of Duvall, just up the street many options for food and drink. I stop at the Grateful Bread Cafe for a sit down lunch before heading back.

It’s an easy spin back up the trail, one I don’t find tedious at all. I note it’s nearly “beer-thirty” and I have several brewery choices as I cross the Snoqualmie River in the upper Valley.

It’s ‘fresh hop’ season and Volition Brewery in North Bend has 3 of them to choose from. Cheers, and thanks for reading my musings on an otherwise typical day.

Every year, I try to ride my age within a week of my actual birthday (which was last Tuesday). I awoke to the sound of rain, but I had a mission. The rain was just a light sprinkle, and had passed by the time I got ready. Ended up doing 75 miles north. I only needed 58, but the weather held up and it's good to have "money in the bank".

Starting to get some color in the trees. In the true spirit of Autumn, I kept my speed under 30-mph for the most of the ride.



Don't think we're going see any Bears (or Matt Nagy) after January...



Took a shortcut through the woods.



1963 - the year I was born. Someday, I hope to own a mailbox this fine.

@thinktubes. Happy Birthday!

Was your Birthday on the 28th? If so, we both tuned 58 the same day.

I was busy this week doing "other things", so had been off the bike for a week before yesterday's ride out the the Big Red Barn at the northern terminus of the Centennial Trail. Jacob and I met up in Snohomish and ended up with 65 miles at the end of the day; for some reason, I thought it was only 50 out n' back, so we got some extra miles in our legs. A bit chilly to start, but warmed up quick and the day was perfect. No wind, plenty of sunbreaks - and the valley vista at the Barn is worth the trip. Enjoy!

Saw at least 4 of these guys - this one was pretty sluggish, even at noon. I picked him up and deposited him in the grass, hopefully giving him a new lease on life:

Very nice early Fall riding weather here in the Rockies took the Mesa GSX for a ride to Thompson park and road a bit of the hack trail. Great views clear skies nice gold aspens and just a bit of snow on the mountain tops.


Blue sky's without any forest fire haze for the first time in about five months.

This trail is almost to bumby narrow for the GSX with low slung cranks and wide bars actually bottom a pedal ounce and grazed a tree.

Nice spin with noglider today. We haven’t ridden together since COVID broke out, maybe 2 years. Glad we made it happen! First time over the new dedicated bike lane on the Brooklyn Bridge.

A quick trip down to Oregon to ride up to Cloudcap on Mt. Hood on Sunday.
Bob Freeman was down in the Gorge this past weekend to ride Larch Mountain on Saturday with the usual Portland suspects. I met up with him and his friend, Frank Haas in Parkdale.
We got going around 10:30 riding out of town through the orchards that blanket the lower slopes of Mt. Hood on Cooper Spur Road.

It’s a steady, gentle climb on nice pavement with tremendous views of the mountain.

Fall colors up higher in elevation as we ride through the forest twords the Cooper Spur Ski Area.

We turn onto the Cloudcap Road at the Ski Area and the pavement soon ends and the fun begins. A wildfire in 2008 ravaged through the north slopes of Mt Hood. We’d spend the next 10 miles or so riding through stands of dead, bleached trees.

It’s all downhill from here. We stop for a post-climb beer at the tavern at Cooper Spur Resort then a 10 mile screaming descent on smooth pavement to our cars in Parkdale. I was home in North Bend by 10:30 that night.

Very nice riding weather road the bike trail and back roads to park city about 20 miles round trip. The Aspens are still in great gold and reds.






Hard to believe that at it's gold mining peak in the 1920's Park city had 2000+ residents and rail spur.

Actually it was a couple of days ago, but since I've learnt what my phone's auto-correct function does to "eroica" I thought it wiser to wait until I had access to an old-fashioned PC.

L'Eroica 2021!

It was good to be back in Gaiole in Chianti. The weather was great, and the people were clearly happy the event was back on again. Due to Covid-19 the rides were now distributed over two days: the long rides (135 and 209 km) were on Saturday, and the shorter rides on Sunday. This effectively eliminated the waiting time at the start on Sunday:



At Brolio castle:



Those hills ... I found Eroica Limburg's 75k a lot easier to do than the 46k here in Tuscany:



Lots of steep climbs and descents on road surfaces like this:



What annoyed me were the many people on electric mountain bikes on the course. Whirring among the sweating riders, blocking intersections to take pictures and enjoying our food. Who are these people?



The food, BTW, was excellent, as always:



It was nice to see the younger generation participating as well:



What my insides felt like and my bike looked like when we got back to Gaiole:



The bike will be attended to later, but the insides were treated immediately with a couple of Campari Spritz' at the Jolly bar. Those work very well.

Pink October first ride. 13 miles near my home starting from my job up to the local golf course.







I left my car at work so I can bike ride tomorrow for Clean Air Day. If it should rain I'll take the Trek single-track I bought recently.
