Just a short cruise around the valley this morning. Overcast skies so I put off a real ride and just played around on the Guv'nor taking pictures.

SMOKED a couple of Mountain Bikes on this trail.

Well, when the specialized DA16 wheels came off and the racelites went on, I don't have one for that set up. Donations accepted!

Just got home from riding in this year’s Mickelson Trail Summer Trek through the heart of the Black Hills SD - from Edgemont to Deadwood. We’ve wanted to ride the trail for some time and this was a perfect opportunity. It’s a smaller version (125 riders this year) of the larger ride in the fall. Beautifully maintained 109-mile rail trail and perfectly organized ride. Sort of a kinder and gentler version of Cino. Open to all bikes but we rode on our trusty his & hers pair of AD Vent Noir “Cino” bikes which were a perfect choice and probably the oldest bikes participating.




A couple of trailside attractions.




Got a rare view of the very cool BNSF Heritage Train operated as a joy-ride benefit for employees.




Four tunnels along the way.



Cold soaking rain for the last leg of the ride but a very nice 12-mile 3% coast into Deadwood.

Today I enjoyed a 41 mile ride making a wide loop from North Dallas to White Rock Lake then up Santa Fe Trail to Deep Ellum, through downtown Dallas, up Katy Trail, past SMU University and on back to North Dallas.

It was pleasant at first but last hour my weather app showed 97 but with humidity it said it feels like 7 degrees hotter.

I don't know about that but it was dang hot at the end.

My method to alleviate heat a bit is to take extra water and keep a wet bandana around my neck plus one around my head under my helmet and rewet them as needed.

This first picture is the old filter building completed in 1911 to filter and chlorinate water for the city of Dallas. It's long been replaced for that purpose.

Now it's a wedding venue and event site.


Along the trail at White Rock Lake. It's 9 or 10 miles to loop the lake depending on route.

Kennedy Memorial and also Reunion Tower with ball on top they can light up many different ways.

Observation deck on top rotates a full circle maybe every hour?
Night views from top are impressive.


Old Red Courthouse in downtown Dallas. I think now it's a museum.

I'm really liking these Soma Vitesse EX 700x42 tires on my Rivendell Sam Hillborne bike.

They provide great cush on rough streets and seem to me to roll quick compared to some tires I've tried.

Plus they are not too heavy at 380 G's for this size.





I need to remember I don't need the bike in every picture.

I do like it a lot.

the Hillborne's chain stays appear to be fork blades

visited the Bernie Mikkelsen workshop once about forty year back and he was finishing up a frame for a friend of mine

he chose to build it with chain stays for fork blades and fork blades for chain stays

On the Paramount today for a lap around the Ashokan. I felt much more connected to the bike today and it was a faster ride than usual.



The views never get old.


I played around with more selfies today.


This is on a spur I don’t usually ride. I caught a glimpse of the lily pads and had to take a look.


About a dozen miles out the clouds rolled in which was fine with me as it kept the temperature lower.


Only about 5 miles left at this point.


I’m often struck by the labor required to build the original railways these trails use. Blasting through stone in places like this, or piling rock and earth though the valleys, in an era where muscle provided much of the power.

I went out solo and got a new PR yesterday! Man am I sore... Beautiful blue skies and mild temperatures, but there was a killer wind blowing in from the north that I bore from the side during most of the east and west riding without gaining from it, and took in the face for well over two hours... Throw in one brief and brutal climb, and it was absolutely the hardest ride of my life.

W&OD trail in Northern VA. At night in the fall the deer stand right on the asphalt, not sure why - sometimes a mom with two or three young ones. There's one lonely stretch going west out of Vienna that's slightly downhill along a stream for three miles with no road crossings. I used to ride it after work around midnight and got going pretty good in the pitch black. Exhilarating. Deer looming in the headlights on a fast bike - terrifying!

Nice weather yesterday took ride to Thompson park for the first time in about year on recently completed Marin MTB no money build. Not great air quality but there were actually finally some nice wildflowers.


Some really nice purple Rocky Mountain orchids.




The Marin looks great with the silver and blue against mountain backdrop

Headed for Petrie Island, a good 90km day. I didn't grab any photos along the wider route, just these two along part of the MUP that follows the Ottawa River, but its a good variety run from the west end of Ottawa, plenty of wide river views, a little bit of climbing in the city itself and some nice smooth shoulder riding along the Rockcliffe Parkway which sees little traffic on weekends when the cyclists fill it up (the white line road near the river). After that you head back onto the path through some bush to get to the island.


Schwinn Voyager always a comfortable ride - I'm really enjoying my new front bag:

Not the best image of the park, but I wanted to go dip my feet in the river as it was a hot day. I forgot that the causeway to access the island is very rough gravel with sharp chunks (the causeway floods in spring, so not paved). No flats until much later when I was headed for home - I realized how old the rim tape was and changed accordingly, also new tire day as well. Panaracer protite replaced the Continental Gatorskin that's on the rear in the photo.

From yesterday…Just a short ride up the hill to the school where I work. I planted some pumpkin seeds in the hope we’ll have a few pumpkins in time for the fall holidays. Then I hit a short trail on my way back into town for a few errands around town.

I took my Look for a 25-mile loop out past the San Pablo Reservoir and back to Berkeley via Wildcat Canyon.

I had to bust out the needle & thread to repair my rear Veloflex Vlanderaan tubular after a flat earlier this week (see above). Today I rode over some glass and got another flat, this time on the front tire. This spare has been getting some good use this week! I had to ride the last 15-miles with a bit of caution around the corners.

View of San Pablo Reservoir




The winter’s rains washed out a section of Wildcat Canyon, a popular cycling road. They haven’t made much progress with the repairs but I’m not complaining since the road has been closed to car traffic.

Thank You. I was somewhat disapointed the holes weren't big enough for two screws. As to a Spork in the road.....

If you look close the knife is hidden behind the spork. I put this on a goof for the pics but left it on for the Pumpkinvine Nature Trail ride.

You are most welcome.
And most unique.

edit: Have never encountered a Spork in the road, but am concerned about the imbalanced aero and avoirdupois of your front legs. Possibly offset by the Raccoon effect.
