I seem to be drawn to Mt. Tamalpais recently. Up and down the shoulders of the mountain a couple times and several miles along the coast highway.

Low 30s and windy. Switched back to drops on the Motobecane and did 20 miles this morning.

I was able to reuse the rear housing but didn't have any more of the red for the front so I've got mismatched cables. Honestly I kind of like it. Maybe I'll do a red/black harlequin on the tops of the bars sometime :)

I did something similar on my Schwinn three-speed. I happened to have enough white Modolo housing for the front brake, so I used that. Black for the rear. The Modolo housing is my "high zoot" part. :)

Did a mostly gravel ride in between Crozet and Batesville today. I explored a new road which would have spit me out next to Batesville and its country store for a sammich if I could have gotten across the Ford of the Meecham River (the bar to get called a river around here is pretty low). Most places the Meecham is about 20 feet wide and rarely more than a couple of feet deep, but the tropical storm remnants that just passed through has everything at flood stage. I had low expectations of getting across and was proven right. I considered shimmying across the fallen tree, holding the bike with one hand below the tree, but for once, common sense prevailed and I rode back the way I came.

I walked along the bank to the right to explore a crossing and sank up to my ankles in mud and managed to coat my bike as well.

What a difference a week makes; temp 77 last weekend 45 this afternoon. I managed my short 22 mile Roger Williams Park loop today. 5 laps with a little urban riding to get there.

I usually do this ride afterwork before the sun sets, but daylight is getting scarce lately.

That's a beautiful bike. The fender lines - particularly the rear - are just right :)

I live 3/4 mile from Mike's shop and am having a difficult time resisting his bikes.

I know! I know! :cry:

Just one of those things I never think about until I'm on the bike.

Thank you :)

I appreciate that, this fender install was the most frustrating one yet :lol:

Because the latter is not a C&V bike? Its rider certainly is vintage!

No, the pile of rocks next to the train track. I usually go at least a couple of weeks before a recycle a location.😉

I am curious about today’s bike though.

​​​​Hah! Guilty as charged. I really like this route and seem to do it at least once a week. About a month ago I rode it three times over three days, once in the opposite direction than the other two. Did I say I like this route?

Oh, and the bike is actually a modified Schwinn Varsity, anyway. Forgot to include a pic of the front end:

Got a new seat for the MT-200 at the local thrift store for $2 yesterday so took a nice windy cold test ride ride around Fairplay this afternoon really like the new saddle.

The high for today was 71, so I slipped out and got in 27.25 miles on the Mercian Vincitore fixed gear. I was pushed for time so not so many pictures, just views of the paved rail-trail with its autumn coat -

Looking at these pictures of your ride tells me i should stop complaining about a 48 cold morning ride.

Those are some nice snowy views while riding.

Beautiful fall weather in Northern California.
