ascherer, I almost had to put on my sunglasses to view this pic. What a beautiful bike!

What manufacturer/ model / year is it?

I really love chrome bikes.
I was able to pick up an Austro Daimler Puch frame in the smoked chrome around 2 months ago and am really enjoying it after building it up.

I rode 1.4 miles on my 1990s Trek 800 (cleverly disguised with brushed-on house paint) so I could lock it at the light-rail train station while going to my volunteer gig. With the raggedy-ass saddle, missing fr der, dorky tires etc, thieves would not be interested in it.





I drive for the clown.

Took the Raleigh SC for some gravel and hills, the Half Dirty Metric, out of Flemington NJ. Had my hands full, with balky friction shifting. Still, a good day on the bike with a couple good buddies.

Thankful to post this thread

The Fall colors crisp.
The mid-40*F temp was crisp, too.

Thomas had a cross country meet this afternoon up near Arlington. I packed my bike on the car and headed out that way a few hours early.

There's an old rail trail that connects Arlington and Darrington. It's twenty seven miles long and mostly gravel(with maybe four miles of pavement). I didn't have enough time to make the whole round trip, so I set a turnaround point at White Horse.

Today was a banner day for crunching leaves. I have never ridden through as many as I did this afternoon. Had to stop four times to clear the freewheel and chainrings. The trail is pretty flat, and follows the North Fork of the Stillaguamish River.




I crossed over the Stilli several times today.



White Horse mtn with a dusting of snow.


The Oso landslide happened over seven years ago. Approaching it today was pretty sobering.

My wife and I rode the Goldenest part of the Snoqualmie Valley Trail this afternoon.

My wife and I rode today to Duvall by Matthew Pendergast, on Flickr

We rode to the northern terminus in Duvall and had a picnic by the river.

The park was nearly deserted. A mom down on the sandy beach with her little one and a solitary painter capturing the moment on canvas..

Time to head back to the car.

Funny that you commented, Matt. You came to mind during the ride. I'm sure you would enjoy the ride, and Mrs. Northbend as well. There were some fallen limbs along the way, so I did have to keep an eye out.

It's the Whitehorse trail. I started at the Trafton trailhead park, a couple miles east of Arlington. From what I've read, the trail is washed out to the west of Trafton.

Some pics from yesterday's ride; the weather's turned to rain, so it was nice to get one more in before departing the pattern.

It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood...

Biked through the neighborhood to the grocery store for dinner supplies. Sometimes it's good to appreciate the view close to home.


Lots of twisty, winding hills and old houses in our neighborhood


Picket fences and fall colors


Overlooking Salem


Spooky!

Yesterday was my first time on an airplane since the Arizona Tour de Spring Break of Feb 2020, slipped in just by the slamming Covid door. Ostensibly I’m out here for a conference, but really it’s to ride my bike and visit my son in LA. I put the Breakaway back together, thankfully undamaged after the TSA agent rooted through it and improperly repacked it, and did a 20 mile shakedown ride from my hotel on the north edge of Encinitas down to Carlsbad. Vague plans to ride to La Jolla Cove on Saturday.

Nice pics, nice food!

Since my sweetie and I couldn't make Top's CCRT ride a few weeks ago we did out own today. I took today off work and we did the Dennis/Wellfleet/Dennis run. It took more than 12 parsecs but we did okay. I have recently replaced a bunch of parts on the tandem, new tires, two new chain rings, new chain, and finally a rebuilt-like-new FW which Pastor Bob sent us a few years ago. It all worked like a charm. Not much bike traffic out on a late-October Thursday. Beautiful weather. Had some nice conversations with folks every time we stopped, including another tandem couple at the start.

We stopped at Nickerson State Park on the way out for lunch.



Signs at Marconi Beach Rd in Wellfleet said the Wellfleet trailhead was closed. What the...? If there is no trailhead does the other end of the trail not exist? What does the trail do? Not end at all, just keep going into infinity? Is it like the Trailhead At the End Of the Universe in HHGTTG? Let's go find out!


Ah, time to turn around. We made it to the end, pics or it didn't happen, so I've heard.


Just for the record, here is the pseudo-new FW.

Today was my big ride in SoCal - Tour of San Diego County beach towns. I rode from my hotel which is technically in Carlsbad, but closer to the north side of Encinitas to La Jolla Cove. The weather app called for cloudy and cool weather, but besides some damp roads and clouds at my late AM start, it was sunny and warm all day, just like itís supposed to be! 51 miles round trip, with a lot of rest stops at beach overlooks. Itís nice to get some flat riding in with a few stinger climbs, particularly the climb up Torrey Pines park. All in all though not too soul sucking. Torrey Pines State park is one of my favorites and I always make a point of visiting when Iím nearby. I came here for a hike yesterday.

Gratuitous pic from my hike down to Torrey Pines beach yesterday




Del Mar - I suspect this is the town the rich folks who donít like the crowds in La Jolla live.

The high point in Torrey Pines State Park.You can see a smidge of ocean to the left. Lots of great ocean views here but you have to leg it to see.

La Jolla Shores - screaming descent on very rough road to get here.

Todayís installment of Tour de Taco. Looked great but were meh.

Digesting tacos and beer before the return leg.

I guess itís OK to feed the bunnies.

La Jolla Cove. I was not in Australia

Moonstone Beach in Encinitas. Probably my favorite. Lots of activity here with volleyball, people cooking out, playing music, surfers. Full California experience.

Crisp fall day - 39F at start time, eventually got into the early 50s. Rode out to Long Grove just for a change of pace. 67 miles total.

I'm trying out a new route, which takes me by the North Brook velodrome. Track was open, but no riders. Didn't make it to any races this year....



Took a shortcut through a subdivision where the streets are single lane paths through the woods. Lots of custom MCM homes on densely wooded lots.



Main street in Long Grove. Settled around 1850, today it is mostly antique and craft stores.



The notorious Long Grove covered bridge. Basically a traffic control device to eliminate trucks and speeding. Single lane with 8' 6" clearance. Ate my lunch here.



Bridge has had over 15 truck strikes since it was rebuilt in 2020 (after another truck strike)


Old church and cemetery - finally getting some fall color.



Had to take a pic at "Vintage Lane" LOL!

Took the Stormvogel out for a spin today to see what needed to be improved or adjusted. Pretty much everything. As in nothing wrong, but nothing perfect either.

Old stomping grounds for me: we moved from Tucson to San Diego just as I was turning 13 years old. Used to snorkel in La Jolla Cove; surfing and body-surfing all over San Diego area. There's a place down there on La Jolla Cove where we did cliff diving, too. Can't remember what the lower of the two cliffs was called, but the higher was called "Dead Man's". A friend and I worked for an elderly lady in La Jolla one summer, doing landscape maintenance work, and she paid us $50 each per day, cash, AND gave us each an additional $10 each for lunch. We used to take long, leisurely lunches, get some tacos at a local joint, and then go cliff diving for a while. Probably the best job I ever had, haha. Also remember going to Torrey Pines to watch the hang gliders. San Diego was a great place to be a teenager!
