My sweetie and I took the tandem out for a morning run, 32 miles. Plenty of sunshine, cool air, minimal traffic.

The big spiders are out at Fern's General Store. Also a new vintage truck.


A quick snack.

I typically do a 20 miler when I can and have posted some pics along the way. Most notably along Lee Dr with the cannon in the pics.
Lee Dr has be chip sealed and is a mess to drive. Thank you National Park Service. It was a real dis service to bicycle riders who have used it a lot.
That is part of the reason it is a 20 miler instead of a 30.
As I was riding into town, Fredericksburg, I though I should take some pics to share with you. The Chatham bridge was recently opened after being closed for a year as it was rebuilt. It now has a MUP path, which is good but on the wrong side. Crossing a busy road is a dicey effort. Guess it would not have mattered which side it is on but one on each side half the width would have been better.
So the first pic is from the middle of the bridge looking down Rappahannock river at the rail road bridge. Amtrak, VRE and CSX trains use it to get across headed north and south. Just to the right is the train station. Should get a picture of that! To the left of the bridge, between bridges is the boy hood home of George Washington, Ferry Farm. This is where he did not cut the cherry tree down. On the right is the edge of downtown Fredericksburg. On the other side of the train bridge is where the lower part of the docks were when this was a major port. The rest of the docks were between the bridges.
11092021VBXTrainBridge on Flickr
This next pic is a bit rough but it gives you the topographical context of Chatham house across the river. There is a road at the base of the hill on the other side that floods a couple of times each year. The pocket in the foreground is always flooded at the same time. For reference, we had a flood a couple of years ago that was halfway up the arches of the train bridge. What is significant of this pic is that this is the view Lee's army had of the Burnsides troops. Burnside had about 100 cannon on the hill in front of Chatham that bombarded the citizens of Fredericksburg. Fredericksburg was the first city that Lincoln commanded that the army attack the general populace and destroy their homes and the town.
11092021VBXChatum on Flickr

This next picture is where the northern pontoon bridge crossed the Rappahannock in the battle of Fredericksburg. You can read the sign for details. There are a pair of Bald Eagles that next near this stretch and are seen often . The fish the river.
11092021VBXNpontoonX on Flickr

This is Mary Washington's grave marker and memorial. There is an outcropping of rocks behind it where it is said that she prayed for George during the war on a regular basis. This is on, you guessed it, Washington St!
11092021VBXMWashingtonGrave on Flickr

This is, once again from other posts, the Fredericksburg canal. The MUP goes along its full length. Used primarily for power for mills. Early on, it was the way around the falls above Falmouth and provided a way to get goods down river from the west.
11092021VBXCanal on Flickr

More pics of the Rappahannock along the MUP. the place where this pic was taken is often flooded after heavy rains.
11092021VBXDownRiver[/url on Flickr

These pics were taken a couple of days after a medium rain fall of about 1.65" in a 24 hour period. When it is in a normal state, you would see rocks. People like to kayak and ride innertubes when it is a bit lower. We also experience high and low tides.

11092021VBXUpRiver on Flickr

From the train station headed west is an old train spur that has been converted to a MUP. This is along that trail. Yean I know there are other posts of the same but the difference is this is with the Pinarello and not the De Rosa!
11092021VBXVCR1 on Flickr

This is the end of the paved section of the VCR trail, my turning around point and the end of this lengthy post! Rout 1 is US 1 that was the north/south road prior to interstates highways. Also known as the Jefferson Davis HWY in some parts south of the Mason Dixon line!

Fredericksburg is only about an hour south of me, yet I never ride there.
When this shoulder heals up maybe we can meet up and you can show me around the trails you like best?

43 miles with a lot of hills on one of my standard routes today. Sunshine, temps in low 70's and beautiful colors. A bit windy and I felt like I had headwind both ways but probably just grumpy legs.

Dudley Mountain Rd

Very nice day back there in Virginia.
We had a few hours of filtered sun in our hood as well.
No pics, but a great day in a group of four.
Beer and bull after.

Hey Byron,
Glad to see you're getting some riding in.
I saw on VS that you were looking to make some changes to your handlebars to resolve some pain issues.
You musta done that..

The missus had the day off from work today, as did I, so we rode our city bikes down to a cafe for un cafe et croissant. We went for a walk along a shortish riverside trail and noted the handy bike rail on the steps to the bridge over the creek. The trail on the other side would take about 5 minutes to ride by bike so maybe not the most productive use of a resource, but appreciated nevertheless. First time I've seen this outside of subway stops in Copenhagen.

I went for a spin today, about 30 miles along hills and valleys I've ridden many times, and a few I've ridden rarely. Today's machine of choice was the Peugeot PF10, nee PFN10 but now wearing tubulars. It's a nice machine. All French, or at least mostly French.

The fields are looking a lot like winter, sans snow. Yeah, I know, yet another pic of a bike with a field in the background.


Did I mention French?


I stopped for a snack at Merriam's Corner, the site of the first major fighting in the British column's retreat from Concord back to Boston, April 19, 1775.


The trail of Battle Road, the National Historical Park along which the British column marched, has this little footbridge heading east from Merriam's Corner.

While I munched away I watched various cyclists try to negotiate that mud. You can't quite tell from the picture but a puddle of water covers much of that area. Some cyclists stopped, turned back to the parking lot a hundred yards through the woods, and rode around on the road. Some just rode through the mud. One poor woman got two thirds of the way across and her bike stopped. Fortunately she was able to put a foot down on reasonably dry mud. I just kept eating.

Matt,
I did put some swept back Nitto bars that Chris gave me on my Medici.
Non-fendered bike, so I haven't given it a good testing period.
If these don't work, I've also found an off name brand that makes a shape that makes more sense to my eye.
I'm also schedule for a video consult from a wrist surgeon on Friday to see what options are available.
It's all a PITW!

Is it simply a gutter or even a powered one with a small conveyor belt inside? I like it when those are available (or more like, I hate it when they're not). Not too expensive but much easier than carrying the bike.

EDIT: Like this: (gutter with brushes or one with a conveyor belt inside.)

Ahh, Jacco, we are a long way from conveyor belts in the US! Just a simple rail. The brushes are a nice touch. The ones I noticed in Copenhagen were pretty unobtrusive and simple indented steel rails. I’m going to start searching YouTube for videos of people riding their bikes on the conveyor belt versions.

Rode the GT Outpost to the local American Legion post (and my polling place) and ran a Veterans Day 5k to benefit their scholarship fund. Did well.

19 miles on the road/C&O Canal today, 44 degrees and despite my phone app saying 10% chance of rain, it rained pretty hard for most of it...Neoprene winter jacket, shoe covers and a few layers kept me warm and mostly dry. (need to replace my 30 year old Performance Winter gloves....)
Discovered my rear disc brake isn't stopping my bike at all, I thought the lever travel was extreme, bottomed out on this one stopping power. First issue with this disc brake (mechanical) setup, hopefully an easy fix.

Sweet autumnal New England ride today. It started off warm enough if a bit blustery, then the thunderstorms hit. No pics of that part of the ride, but I was very glad to be wearing wool.

Expect to see some crash footage one of the reasons there aren't many coneyor betlts or rails in the US is people would try to ride therm and crash rather than follow the rules and walk are stand. While the US is getting better but most public transit and roads trails in the US are just no very bike commute basic transportation friendly.

Did my usual weekend thing of heading out around London without a planned route, and just see what I come across. I'm always on the look out for new pieces of street art and we're lucky here in London that the place is so big there's also loads of outside artworks to see, permanent and temporary, so there's always new discoveries.

First stop is Leake Street tunnel, a legal street art/graffiti spot near Waterloo station.


Spotted a nice 1968 Cadillac Coupe deVille being used as an advertisement for a new steakhouse.

Rode down Constitution Hill which is looking very autumnal.

To the right of this road is basically the back garden to Buckingham Palace. The Queen was in as she'd nursing a bad back so she missed the Remembrance Sunday service at the Cenotaph today.

Saw some remembrance street art over in east London.

Sunglasses are not going to be needed here for a few months but nice to have bright colours to offset the grey

A couple of new works on Brick Lane

Like this one as the bloke on the phone just turned round at that second and he's mirroring the ghost figure in the artwork

A new snowflake inspired art piece in Broadgate

And finally on my way home along the river Thames, there's a new shed artwork by Nathaniel Rackowe that has appeared on the banks opposite the famous Secret Intelligence Service building or Mi6 as its known, which is the building on the left. It was seen being blown up in James Bond film Skyfall, using special effects obviously, they didn't really do it. The tall building on the right is called St George's tower, a helicopter crashed into it in 2013, killing the pilot, and a pedestrian was also killed by falling debris. I live in an old Victorian terrace house in a street behind these two buildings.

Pic from yesterday's ride.

Old White Rock Lake Pump Station seen across the Lake.
Lots of folks out enjoying the urban lake in temps of 50's to low 60's throughout the beautiful sunny autumn day.

It's between 9 to 10 miles to go around the lake depending on the path one takes.

It's a wonderful area resource that many enjoy.
