very perty bike Wild one.
i require more gears than that.
we are in different camps on the brake reach.
i have small arthritic hands.
i have some stoppers that bring the levers closer to my stubby mitts.
Anyway, that is a lovely rig.

I winterized the 90s Wheeler MTB w/ studded front tire, front wheel w/ dynamo hub, B&M lamp, and front fender. Took it to work this morning though the roads and paths were largely cleared of snow and ice. Did find some.

Been mighty cold here in NE PA, but warmed to 40s today! That did make for quite a salty mess to clean up post ride.

The river looks even colder! You're a harder man than I (it was a bit nippy for me wearing shorts/short sleeves at 65 degrees in AZ today)

Any concerns with ice on that MUP? I'm thinking a very, very cold bath could be on the cards if one slid at speed and went off to the left!

Yeah, a tumble down there would be quite painful. The path actually was mostly clear, which surprised me. We had snow and then some ice here recently. There were a few spots with some remaining ice, but easily seen well in advance so I just took it easy over them. Supposed to get much colder this weekend with a snowstorm.

65 in AZ - I'm jealous!

I had to go to wallyworld across town to have tires installed. Rather than wander around there, I packed a bike and rode a short distance to Chambers Creek golf course. Nice views and some groovy little hills.

My ride, yesterday, was about 50 mile further south than Brian's so temp was about 45°. Still, this time of year, you gotta stay diligent for winte hazards. Any dark area on the pavement could be ice, likely water but don't chance it. Solid ice, black ice or a water/ice mix. Track the sun as, even at 40°, shaded areas could still be iced over. If in doubt steer to the north or west edge of the pavement and stop pedaling, coast over it. Or walk.

And be much more watchful for gravel or rock salt, or both. It will be in places that are always clear the rest of the year. Especially watch for rock salt at intersections where the trucks slow for stop signs or traffic but do not close the gate. Oh, and when plowed snow melts, chunks of ice will tumble back onto the pavement. Winter is a bad time for distracted riding.

yeah, it's different but better than riding inside all winter. And my indoor track is only about 8' long.

Yup, all those hazards are familiar to me; in fact, these days I avoid riding in temps lower than the 40s if there's been recent rain. It's too easy to miss a tiny spot of ice, particularly if you're paying attention to traffic or whatnot, and end up having a really bad day.

Cabin fever or broken collarbone? Hmmm...I'll take door number one since I don't heal up as fast as I once did

I woke up at stupid o'clock this morning and couldn't get back to sleep, so as it was foggy and all atmospheric and mystical outside, I thought I'd pop out for a spin and try to capture the moodiest pics my boggo standard phone camera could muster. Was just above freezing here in London this morning, so I wrapped up warm, minimised the leaning and avoided those deadly metal drain covers and any icy patches.


It started off really foggy but gradually cleared up, here's HMS Belfast and the world famous silhouette of Tower Bridge, ....honestly guv

Our den of thieves, or the Houses of Parliament as its more commonly known. After 3 years of repairs at an eye watering cost, they removed the scaffolding to reveal the famous old face of Big Ben, Big Ben actually refers to the Bell and not the clock itself. The old bell tolls on the hour and is used as the countdown to the New Year, and the start of traditional New Years Eve firework display, which alas was cancelled because of Omicron this year.

On the opposite side of the river Thames sits St Thomas Hospital, originally located further down the river in Southwark it has been based in Lambeth since 1871, but the hospital has been providing healthcare freely, or under charitable auspices since the 1100's. Florence Nightingale laid the foundations for modern UK nursing when she established her nursing school at the hospital in the 1860's. Our feckless, lying, tail chasing Prime Minister Boris Johnson was admitted here with Covid following breathing difficulties back in April 2020, in the week prior he'd been boasting of shaking hands with people in a hospital on the very day the Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (SAGE) advised against doing so. They nursed him back to health and sadly Boris the virus has been released back amongst an eye rolling British public.

The walkway along the river front of the hospital has been turned into a very moving National Covid Memorial Wall. It stretches a few hundred metres, all the way through and beyond the fog of this picture, and is covered in hearts in which people are invited to add an inscription to someone loved and lost due to Covid.

I coast along the cycle route along the Thames towards the business district, stopping off at St Paul's Cathedral, good morning fellow cyclist....

I do like this view of the old church in the foreground and the modern building we know as the Gherkin looming out of the mist behind it.

Nearby there was a new artwork on display called Orphans by Bram Ellens, it is made up of paintings that had become orphaned after their owner died and the art was discarded by their heirs, and were gathered by the artist from undertakers and thrift stores and made into new works. As its breathing new life into old works I'd have preferred the original art to be displayed on the outside rather than hidden on the inside, but I'm just a muggle.

And following all that drab winter grey, after it had brightened up a bit I managed to add a bit of colour by stopping at what looks like a relaxing countryside pond in spring time, look the daffodils are out, I look forward to the days in the coming months when the real ones are flowering.

Well, you are no muggle in my book!
Thanks for taking the time on our ride, to stop and take those photos.
Thats a landscape I might never encounter in person (still hopeful....), and certainly whets my appetite to make a trip to London happen before I get too darn old!

Dylansbob - how do you like those moustache bars for longer rides? Are those moustache or 'albastache'? I'm considering trying these on a fixed-gear Peugeot build.

I can't vouch for more than the 1hr rides my body allows, but I like them once I get them set up right. They do seem to be a little tricky, I typically shorten up the stem 10mm or so. These are actual Nitto Moustache, I have the Origin8 knockoffs (identical curves, drop) on my old tracklocross rig and another pair somewhere. When I got my first pair, ~'02, I ran them with RSX STI levers. When DualControl came out soon after, it was like deja vu for me.

Solo shakedown ride on the new-to-me Cutter tandem. Still some sorting to do, but what a great bike.



Learned me a lesson about left leg trouser damage!



I love this view under the Sellwood Bridge.

Took the Robust around the block a few times today, to get it right. The weather wasn't too bad for January, and just before it set, the sun even showed itself briefly.

Nowhere, technically. I had meniscus repair in mid-December following a twisting injury to my left knee. Today was my first time in the saddle, 25 minutes on the trainer, about the duration of my one-way commute, spinning on my International townie. I HATE riding a trainer and always have, but this felt pretty good.

I completely agree that the trainer is boring. Still, I leaned on mine heavily during recovery from femur surgery in 2017. It's definitely handy to have when you need it. Best of luck on your recovery.

My most recent attempt at alleviating trainer boredom has been to try rollers for the first time (borrowed from a fellow BF denizen whose handle I can never recall for the mention). For the time being at least, it's anything but boring. I can finally stay up for a few minutes at a time, but my shoulders are still tense and my eyes are glued to the front wheel. Not sure I'll ever cook while riding rollers.

Thankful to post this thread

Just pics- but it was ‘sweet 16+’ smilin miles. Who says the Winter bikes have to all have fenders?


Something about rock walls and black bikes.

Green fields and well fenced


edit: Trying the Wolfpack clinchers - that are touted to be smooth yet with a tire tread that is more resistant to cuts and puncture flats. All that has been available (at least lately) stateside has been 23mm clincher. So on a discounted hunch, financially speaking, I took the leap. So far pleased with them after several rides with light gravel. I will clean and inspect them for cuts.

The ‘gravel’ = hard packed and rain washed
