A short, chilly 25-miler this Thanksgiving Day. Didn't take many pics, but this old barn caught my attention. Definitely seen better days!

Nice weather today about 50 and clear great for biking took the SS Nishiki retro mod trainer out of a short Thanksgiving day ride. Still no significant snow cover on trails or roads below 11,000 feet which is pretty much a record for the Rocky mountains this late in the year almost December with no snow cover. Great for biking but bad for nearly everything else if things don't change were looking at 30 percent vegitation and wildlife kill off and winter forest fires.





There Should be about a foot of snow in this spot.


The 40+ year old lower end Nishiki still looks and rides great. Except for the water bottle pedals and bar tapes everything on this one is over 20 years old and salvage.

Just built it up from a bare frame, and while it was wet and cold today, I took it out for a quick 30 minute ride before the Holiday madness started (and drunks started appearing on the roads) to see how it compared to my other bikes.

As I get a bit more saddle time, I've grown to appreciate steel bikes more and more. This one is certainly better than the Centurion Ironman and Schwinn Le Tour that represented steel in my collection.

No black Friday shopping for me, but I did get in a ride on my Peugeot.

There are many many live oak trees in Texas that are always green so this little tree that almost appears to be on fire caught my eye so I stopped for a pic.
