And a lot of shots of the Kuwahara Count today. Such a nice ride sorted out with a new saddle, larger tires, and the paint blemishes pretty much touched up.

I went out for two rides over the long weekend on the 1952 Claud Butler Olympic Sprint. Haven't regularly ridden fixed in a few years so it's fun, but the 48/14 gearing is pretty tough whenever a headwind blows by!

On Sunday a bunch of us did our usual autumn Cape Cod Rail Trail ride. 45 miles round trip. 10 people at the start (on 9 bikes), and another rider joined us at Orleans. Th classicest and vintagest bike was Frog's 1917 Columbia built up with modern components. It was awesome.

Pics and other ride-report nonsense can be seen here

That's a is tough FX/SS gearing setup for long rides. I'm down 38/18 SS with both brakes and cushy but stiff wheelset tires on mine with only 21lbs curb weight and find some places I ride tough.

Pumpkin Ride


Every year the Pumpkin Fairy decorated these woods with pumpkins.



Can you spot all three pumpkins hiding in the Redwoods?

This shot has some serious potential as an artsy monochrome... nice!

42 miles on Wizard shakedown ride #2. Other than a rear flat, perfection.

First cx ride of the season today. Maybe not classic, surely not vintage. But great fun.

Perfect autumn day today, cool, calm, clear. Skipped work for a couple of hours physical and mental wellbeing. Refreshment stop at Dry Rigg Quarry with view of Pen-y-ghent.


Some dirt track riding adds to the experience, this is Norber Scar.

Like Wildwood , glad to be posting to this thread again. Tuesday, actually, but an excellent ride. I needed to be in Allentown for a meeting so I tucked the Nishiki International in the car too. Proceeded to the Ironton Rail trail and found a place to have my picnic lunch. I sat in the warm sun and was glad for another day above ground. Glad for another day that I don't need an e-bike and glad that our atmosphere scatters the blue end of the spectrum of our star's light which makes our sky that lovely shade of blue that we've become so fond of. Due to a Doctorective to stay off the bike for two weeks then Dr. Ian (TD, BFS) bringing 5 days of rain to the mid-Atlantic I've gotten fat and lazy and this was only my second ride of late. So here is a pretty pedestrian photo of the picnic spot. A great day.

I was just talking to my wife about doing this trail tomorrow. I won't bother to show her your picture, it's better than anything I have taken lately but not really selling it for me. I'll attempt better if we do it, she is a bit of an old train nut, so she should like it.

I was down at Perkiomen Cycles and asked it you were around. The girl behind the counter said you were working on old bikes at an old warehouse. Sounds like you found heaven.

A couple nice easy local rides the past couple days on the MT-200 cushy ride bike. The leaves a nearly all off the Aspens so expect grey and white snow pics in the near future.


Nice to see the flags at full mast.

The morning started out OK but wildfire smoke drifted in by the time I got into the lower Snoqualmie Valley.
I slowed down and took it easy, stopping to take pictures every now and then.

Passing by the Old Weyerhauser Millpond on the way to the lower Valley.

The colors so far this fall have been muted, the exception being this street in Snoqualmie Ridge where I cut through the housing development to access Lake Alice Road.

The smoke settling in on the lower flanks of Lake Alice Hill..

I went this way so I could check on Fall Cityís Billy Bones.

I stopped at a cafe in Carnation for something to nibble on before heading home on the Snoqualmie Valley trail..

Nowhere.

Ugly Harbingers...



This probably looks pretty, if you don't have to live in it for the next six months.



For me, it just extinguished any desire to ride at all. Give me sand and palm trees over this any day.

I must be getting old...

40 on the C40 today. I had a nice long tailwind on the flatter part of the ride. Very nice. I did a little exercise to keep the mind occupied while riding today. Most all of my rides involve at least a couple of double digit gradient climbs, usually 12-16%, so today I thought Iíd keep track and see how many there actually were using a criteria of 10% or more for 10 seconds or more of riding. There were 9 - kinda wish I didnít know that. At any rate only 2 or 3 longer than about 100m. Puts hair on your chest as my Dad used to say.



Taylorís Gap Rd. About 100m down form a spot Iíve posted pics of before. Blue Ridge, Ravens Roost in the far distance.
