Same here. The paved sections that remain are still really nice, but the sound and vibration difference between the hard paving and chip seal is significant.
And, of course, until the chip is really pressed in by traffic and rollers, there's a lot of dust flying around. My voice was weird for a couple of days.

That's a bummer. I haven't been home and up there for years, but each time I am back I head up there to take pictures. Always loved the smooth pavement, chipseal is just such an inferior surface.

I'm glad I'm not in Italy this week as it bakes in temperatures in the high 40's centigrade. Back in the UK we're still waiting for summer to arrive, barely making 20 centigrade this weekend and yesterday was pretty much a cycling write off with winds over 40mph, which along with ice I deem weather too sketchy to cycle in.

Today's gusts are about 20 mph, so makes you feel like you're flying along like a champ with the wind behind you, then you turn into the wind and get a dose of reality.

I've been putting more miles on my most recent Bottecchia build. My username is how I thought it was pronounced, but have since found it its more like Bot-tech-ia, but the English have been badly pronouncing other languages for centuries so it seems appropriate I leave it as it is haha.

Nowhere near as plush as cooperryder 's tyres look, but the 28c Turbo Cotton tyres really make London's patchwork road surfaces/moon scapes more bearable. Posing here with some old style phone boxes,

And around the corner we stop for a pic at the imposing entrance to Lincoln Inn Fields, where I'm not allowed to cycle so i don't go in

I then head eastwards in search of new weekend art works, pausing briefly at this painted on wavy column, artworks posing as architecture is a new one on me, but still drew a wry smile.

The east end is home to many cool cats and even the dogs round here are hipsters.

And from dogs with 4 eyes to an artist called 'my dog sighs', who specializes in eyes, and my peepers were out on stalks looking at this, very impressive work.

Passing back south of river I find another impressive piece in Leake Street tunnel.

And my final and biggest one of the day was in Brixton, and was done 2 years ago to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Marvin Gaye's classic album 'what's going on'....

....which becomes an ear worm and in the same vein as me butchering the pronunciation of Bottecchia, I find myself singing the worst cover version ever of 'what's going on' all the way home, with dogs running for cover and the people of south London crying out in unison 'oh mercy mercy me'

Back out this morning on the Gianni Motta. I stayed out for a little over 47 miles so I could top 200 miles for the week. First time this year doing that many. I guess my conditioning is coming back even though the speed isn't there. I ran some miles fast but for the most part just stayed in cruising mode taking pictures here and there.


Swapped on a narrower seatpost binder and solved the slipping seatpost issue

Stringtown Rd Barn

Abandoned cabin

This one did feel good under me on the ride today. Plenty responsive each time I did get on it.

Thank you 1989Pre and thinktubes.

I bought the wheels new off eBay about 2 years back.

Hubs are Shimano FH-T3000 Acera level.

Not the fanciest but I have had no issues with them.
I running 55 to 60 PSI in the Panaracer tires.

I rode this bike another 33 miles today and it's just all out fun to ride.


SMU University Campus.
I did do a build thread on this bike.

Yesterday, Saturday, I got in 42 miles on this 1994 Gary Fisher Hoo Koo E Koo.

I think most models came with a front shock fork.
Mine came with the rigid fork.
This bike frame is made from some type of butted steel tubing and in later years they switched to aluminum according to what I found on some of the online catalogs.

At first I didn't much enjoy riding this bike in it's original configuration but once I installed a taller stem and Sunlite North Road bars I'm really digging it.

Now in my geezerhood years tall bars just work for me.

When I want a longer loop I often ride from North Dallas to downtown Dallas, then over to Deep Ellum which is basically a funky vibe section immediately east of downtown. (Lots of art work on the building walls down there as well as restaurants, clubs, music venues, etc.)

Downtown at the JFK assassination area there are always people milling around, at least everytime I've been through there.

In about 4 months it will be the 60th anniversary of this event but the interest doesn't seem to fade for visitors to Dallas.

After passing through Deep Ellum I get on the Santa Fe trail that leads to White Rock Lake after 5 or so miles, then I circle the lake and then get on a northbound bike trail to get back to the northern suburbs of Dallas.

It's a pretty good route and most is on low traffic sections until you get downtown but there are some bike lanes downtown.

One can see a lot on what I call the Grand loop ride.
I often snap to take pics.


Triple Overpass

Grassy Knoll

2 X's mark the spots.

Deep Ellum Dallas.

White Rock Lake spillway.

With another 33 today , Sunday, that gives me 75 for the weekend.
Not bad I guess for an old fellow in the Texas summer.

Although today a weather reprieve at the 12 mile mark occurred when a 20 minute or so rain storm blew through and lowered the temps 10 to 12 degrees or so.

Weekend rec ride.

Last week, the weather forecast said :
Saturday 50% chance of rain, but it didn't
Sunday 50% chance of rain, but it didn't

I didn't ride a bike last weekend.
I'm not a serious cyclist who's riding in the rain any more.

Here comes the season of 35C/high 90F!
The sky is beautiful and sun-tanning sun.
But the temp is...

Mt. Fuji view point
Weather was good, but...
It's like a stupid game of love, hahaha




A cool and nice stretch of a hill.
Bamboo bush and its shade.
The right side is Gonen-ji temple's premises.
Founded circa 1752.
This stretch is feeling too nice to stop and take pics, in the summer in particular.





Sakura yashiki, cherry blossom house, is now a nice tree shade house.




We Japanese associate sunflowers with summers at once.
A roadside beauty.

When asked about Motown's best releases, Smokey Robinson didn't know which song to name, because there are so many. But he immediately knew which album, that one.

I put 60 miles on the Moser today, low 80's temps, partly cloudy. The clouds and shade were a big factor and made the ride much more comfortable. This is the first time I ever rode without a 28T low sprocket, and it worked out just fine. The Moser's low gearing is 42Tx22T for this ride, but there was only 2,325 ft of climbing. I had put new fibre washers in my Simplex shifters, and they did the job. Great ride!

Almost at the turn-around point and have only drunk about 10oz of water.

That Strava was simply a way to tell the story of having the Peugeot stolen and recovered the day before the annual Lizard Under The Skillet ride in Lawrence. It was quite an emotional roller coaster of shock, loss, and then redemption. Included pictures with descriptions of how it all went down. On the Lizard ride, thought the PSV-10 did me well, as I’m 72, and the bike is 41+.

I'm not a member of Strava, so they are not letting me see it. It sounds like a wonderful story, though. I'm glad you got your Peugeot back, and congratulations on the curiously-named ride!

After reassembling bike, went upstairs to the Airbnb to change shoes and get helmet for test ride, when I came back down the stairs, the bike was gone. The owners checked their security camera, and we could see he walked past in the alley, then returned and nicked the bike. I drove around but went south, and he went north to a homeless camp. The neighbors got on their electric scooters and cased the camp, and took a picture of a tent in front of the entrance, and you can see the Peugeot! The officer said not to go into the camp alone, but I drove up to see, and the bike was again gone. One of the locals who try to offer help was leaving, and she asked what I was looking for, and I told her the bike was stolen, she asked if I had a description of the individual. When I described him she knew exactly who it was, gave me his name and picture for the police. I drove up to the north camp entrance, and there he was, walking out with bike. I jumped out of the car and said ‘dude, I want my bike back’! And he handed it over with no resistance in an almost polite way. Shoved it in the car and off I went. And got to ride the Lizard Under the Skillet on Sunday morning after all. Wow!

The bikes route thru Lawrence to the camp.

The neighbors picture at camp entrance, there’s the Peugeot leaning in back of the tent.

The picture of the thief.

The Peugeot back at the Airbnb, never thought I’d see it again, lots of help, and some good luck!

Santa fe 2926, that is a thrilling story. Thanks for posting so I can see it. What compelled you to drive to the north side of the camp after you spoke with the angel woman? It is good to see how much you treasure the bike, and it may or may not have anything to do with its monetary value, but I assume it is much more than that.

Chris and a neighbor friend and I intended to do the Skate Creek/Paradise loop today, but discovered that Stevens Canyon road is closed.
We did ~70 miles, but no good close visits to the mountain as shown in your shot.

Stevens Canyon is open on the weekends, but there are miles of rough gravel. It would be a horrible (and dangerous) ride. I drove through on the 9th.

30 miles for the Barnard today. Not a lot of climbing, so just fine for forty-seven gear inches. Beautiful cloud cover and shade. Left at 10:30am. 79F when I left, 85F when I returned. All the smells of summer: https://www.mapmyride.com/routes/vie...ite/5558237806

1948 all over again.


Corral, seems to be presently unused

I tried to capture the wonderful clouds in between trees.

This will connect with 125S
