Sorry me again, and this is from yesterday as I was late home. We were blessed with the 3rd nice day in a row for our 4 day holiday, so as the old saying goes, make hay while the sun shines, so I was out on the bike again. I decided to head out to the outer limits east, and back along the river for this first time this year.

First stop was the climb up to the Greenwich observatory for a good view across the city.

At the bottom of the hill I stop in the grounds of the National Maritime Museum, where they have an exhibit called 'the world re-imagined' with a load of globes painted by different artists to bring to life the impact of the transatlantic slave trade. More detail on each here: https://www.theworldreimagined.org/globes/

I also stop for a pic with a bunch of boat anchors, which today's carbon bike definitely is not.

Its then a few miles further east to the outer limits and our capitals flood defence, the Thames Barrier, in C&V approved shiny silver which always looks good in the sunshine.

From here all of London is west, fortunately there's a nice quiet cycle path that follows the meandering river.

We then come across a landed space craft or is it a very expensive tent, no its the Millenium Dome.

This area has been massively redeveloped since I first moved to London 30 years ago, there was no cable car when I started cycling this route back then.

The cable car crosses the river Thames from the Millenium Dome on the south side to the Docklands on the north side, and though I did not do it today you can take your bike on it, and on a clear day like today the views are great. Due to the seemingly never ending redevelopment down here, there's often something new to see every time I come down this way, and shortly after remounting my bike after taking the above pic, not only did I have one of those moments, but it was a "holy crap, what is that!" moment, that made me screech to a halt.

Turns out the new arrival is the largest work of artist Damien Hirst's wreck of the unbelievable series, he has 2 others along this stretch of river. This one called 'Demon with bowl' which was originally unveiled at the 2017 Venice Biennale but now clearly has a new home.
Further along the river I find I more impromptu artwork, at least that's what I hope it is, otherwise the robot army has just landed on our shores and if you don't hear from me next week, you'll know London has fallen, and to send help!

I got home for lunch, had a bike swap and cycled 13 miles to north London to watch Paris Roubaix and drink beer with a fellow bike nerd. A really badly timed puncture seemed to decide the race and MVDP cruised to victory in what was still the fast Roubaix in history. Of course like most cyclists I prefer riding in dry sunny weather to wet and muddy conditions, but the best Roubaix's are the grim weather ones in my experience, but chapeau, it was a still a powerhouse display.

The cycling was followed by more beer and an exciting 2-2 draw between Liverpool and Arsenal on the TV, my mate being a Liverpool supporter so he was pleased to snatch a late draw after they were losing 2-0 early on. Then back 13 miles home stopping for a final pic of the day on the South Bank.

Our holiday weather luck has run out, and today it has been raining all day, so normal UK service has resumed and there'll be no riding today. But I felt I made the most of the cycling opportunities this weekend, so now is the time to catch up on the flat cleaning, clothes washing and other boring chores. I think if I lived somewhere with really nice weather all year round I'd never get around to any cleaning.

Tuesday 11th afternoon ride to Pleasant Point via Seven Sisters road. Some pictures along the way and I looked in the door of "Obsolete Iron", a quirky motor garage/display/workshop.

Quiet roads to explore another day.

Get some cast iron on your bike!

Obsolete Iron

. Owner is a really nice guy, has interesting repairs/modifications to older vehicles and motorcycles going on all the time.
A bit like us classic and vintage guys only with more petrol!

Passing time with a friend until my red eye home from Touroica I decided to make a capstone ride from Lafayette, Ca up to Grizzly Peak and get me some SF Bay views. A big ol’ fat wrench was thrown into this when I got a flat in Moraga (after 350 miles of riding on some bad roads) and realized I’d forgotten to bring my pump. By the time I was able to get ship shape again, my time was gone, so that ride will have to wait until another time and I settled for this pic at the top of a long climb which is about a 10 minute walk from where I am staying. Walnut Creek to the left, Mt Diablo to the right.

Really nice Spring day today in the high 60's took a ride to Alma on the bike path which is finally mostly dry and clear. Still a lot of mud and snow Alama and the park trails are still a no go.



This is the Huffy at the bike graveyard several have asked about. It's a Granite Pass one seriously confused bike.






I like the view from the trail riding back into Fairplay.

Hanami is to see and enjoy flowers and blossoms, originally.
But present first definition is to eat and drink in the blossom shade.
Or spring outdoor drinking party in the cherry blossom shade.
It is nice and fun.
Daytime and nighttime, both are nice.
It celebrates end of winter, and coming of spring.
Of course, another excuse of drinking
Drinking outdoor and public places is OK in Japan, isn't against law.

Rode this morning to the annual statewide traffic engineering conference. The meeting is at a hotel in the northeast area of Phoenix which doesn't have a lot of nearby motor vehicle parking, so riding is actually more convenient. My route is along quiet residential and collector streets, some independent shared-use paths, and even a couple hundred feet along a rocky desert trail, so I shouldn't complain about the travel. Took the alumicruiser (with a replaced rear tire) with a pannier and baskets for the backpack and clothes.



Also encountered some ancient and mysterious obelisks...

24 mile ride in central Iowa

I picked up a 1970s SekineSHR earlier this month for $20 for the cheapo bike build thread (it's called the on the road again thread). It's a good bike that was in fine shape with some rusted parts I had to deal with. The bike has a double butted chrome moly main triangle and nice components. The suntour derailleurs really shift nicely. The bike came with steel rims (they areOEM) and I left them on the bike. After overhauling the bike and dealing with the rust issues, the only things I changed were the saddle, cables, and housing. I sunk around $18 worth of parts to get the bike ride ready.

I took it on a 24 mile ride in central Iowa on a path that meanders along the Des Moines River up to Saylorville Lake. The bike rides great.

^ Yea no kidding SR, beautiful day for a bike ride yesterday.

Got a nice long loop under sunny skies.
The bloom’n trees near the Snoqualmie Train Depot on the way to Seattle.

Snoqualmie Depot by Matthew Pendergast, on Flickr

Crossing the floating bridge you can see a North wind is blowing - the water being darker on the right hand side. Around here, North winds signal nice weather.

After crossing the bridge, I head North riding the well known “Lake Washington Loop” bike route.

Passing through the Arboretum surrounded by many flowering trees and shrubs.

Onward to the University of Washington campus to admire the blooming cherry trees.

Time to close the loop and ride home. Up over Lake Washington via the Burke-Gilman Trail then down to Redmond on the Sammamish River Trail.
A long climb up n over Redmond Ridge via Novelty Hill and I’m in the lower Snoqualmie Valley.
I finish it with peaceful ride up the Snoqualmie Valley Trail to home.
First Century of the year for me.

Tuesday, 80, sunny, very windy, son and 13 year old GS visiting: almost 6 miles through Skokie Sculpture Garden
Today, 80 sunny, not very windy: the 3 of us rode around Skokie Lagoons for 13 miles

GS really varies his speed, so the ride was pretty tough for me, slowing so I didn't touch wheels, then speeding up because I let him get too far ahead. I think I'll go faster and farther when I'm alone. :-)

Postscript to my Wednesday ride above: On that ride, I rolled over 70,000 miles since I started keeping decent mileage records in January of 1989. I did a lot of riding in 1980-1988, including several seasons of racing, but didn't keep good records, so I can't say with certainty how many miles were rolled. And it would be a guess anyway, as I didn't have a useful odometer on any of my bikes back then.

Trying to keep up my fitness gains from last weeks Touroica by squeezing in rides within a busy work schedule. Got out for 16 miles on the Tommy today, able to muscle the 42 ring up one of the tougher climbs in town.



Top of the climb, Looking north back at. Charlottesville. UVA hospital mothership to the right in the distance.

Monday is my birthday, but the forecast for the next couple of days is iffy, so I decided to do my birthday today. We’ve had record breaking heat in the Boston area the last couple of days, but that broke last night and it was around 50F at the start of my ride and low 60s by the end.

I was on my Fitz:



Marking the milestone!


Ended up a bit over 67 miles with 3,150 ft of climbing. I’ll save those extra miles when I’m old(er) and feeble(er).

Saturday, rainy and dark, got me down, couldn't ride bike.
Yokohama isn't Roubaix or Flanders.

Sunday, bright and sunshiny.
20C/68F.
Yes, cycling day!

Weekend rec ride.

Mt. Fuji view point.
I can see 90% of her.
I have to admit it's OK.




The drive way to Isogo Country Club golf course.
I have to admit same as last week, ha,ha,ha.
They'll take more time to be said "tree canopies"




Chosho-ji temple, founded 1574, again.
Another building, beautifully aged too.





It's hedge and big and old keyaki tree, zelkova tree, zelkova serrata.
It's so big and old that it is registered as an important tree by Yokohama City Hall.




Another registered keyaki tree.





Hagoromo jasmine, Spanish jasmine, Jasminum polyanthum.
It smells so nice!
Another joy of spring!




And here comes azalea-week!

WOW lots of beautiful scenery, you guys make it tough for girl living in an ugly city tough to come up with good pics.

Well the stars finally aligned and I managed to get a rare clear warm day while I was off work. So I managed to get out for a little season opener meandering.

My fabulous '86 SIzzling Peach Volpe got the honor of the first ride, it slightly relaxed geomentry makes it a great early season ride.


Just a little Cul de Sac cruising as I didn't want to get too far from home on the first ride. I have to learn how to make my starting point



Since blooming trees seem to be the "photo of the day" here's my humble submission.


If you're interested there are more gritty details and pics on my FB page Trina Brady.
