Today a ride passing a Greek Orthodox Monastery.

Road-tested another bike (Ross Carrera) I refurbished to benefit the bike-share program. Satisfied with result. Rewarded myself with a cheesesteak slice.

Japanese plum, aka Umi. Few folks around here know these and think they are seeing a cherry tree. The plums can be pickled, made into wine, or to flavor higher levels of alcohol. They have an appearance more akin to a flowering quince than a cherry

Very nice weather today in the 50's for the first time in about 5 months. Got to take the old single speed Nishiki trainer for short ride to the Library Book Garage to do some volunteer work.

96 degrees here today, so I waited until around 1500 to start my normal out 'n back 36 miler. Took a couple days off after Tuesday's hot, big-mile day and felt really good on both legs today. Normally I can feel it when I'm in the last 5 miles, but not today. Very refreshed! Think I'm gonna start going harder with a day off every other day, see how that works out.

Saw a desert iguana - had to take this with zoom from a distance so I wouldn't spook him, and it ended up less sharp than I'd have liked:

Today I was wearing a throwback I T & B jersey just received from Ebay. Had one just like it in the late 90s, but for some reason I sold it along some years ago. Since Island Triathlon & Bike was my go-to LBS for my 4-year Hawaii tour, I've been wanting to find another one of their vintage jerseys for some time. Thanks, Hawaii-based Ebay seller!

Bacon, chorizo, potato, avocado, & egg burrito. It was enough for two people.

Bit of radial runout in the cinnamon roll. BCD of 140mm.

My wife and I were able to get in another ride yesterday in Yellowstone before the roads open up for tourist vehicle traffic next week.

Cool, chilly, windy, sunny with a some hail.
We mostly got the good stuff.

We stopped for a Puget Sound view, but I pointed the camera in the opposite direction

Wow! summer gloves. Looks like a wonderful day.

Trying to get ready for Eroica, I rode up Bald Peak today with @gugie. The climb up on pavement was just basic fitness preparation, but the descent down Holly Hill Road, featuring a -18% grade on loose gravel, helped us practice for the fear we will experience descending Cypress.

Thanks Doc, she loves that photo you took of us. She really is pretty intrepid but sheís hinting that she doesnít think she could do both days of Cino again this year. I donít know why, this was her first bike ride this year - 40 miles in-and-back and about 1,800 feet of vertical at an average elevation around 7,000 ft with the steepest section (including a 14% pitch) right at the start then leveling off. She didnít stop at all until lunch after putting in 15 miles. At 63, she just keeps on going.

That's a beautiful image of the happy couple. Good job!

I was rocking the 80s on today’s ride:

Spaghetti Legs 04-10-22 01:33 PM

Eroica tuning today for my legs; still deciding on which bike though. 40+ miles with about 11 of that gravel. It is still chilly here with icy wind gusts up to 20 mph, so I grumpily wore the leg warmers, fuzzy hat and extra layers yet again. I had a nice tailwind for the home stretch though.

Catterton Road, Blue Ridge in the distance

^ You know I've been a cyclist for over two decades now and I've never thought of putting my bike in that position to change a flat.

I've put a few mountain bikes in that position, but it wasn't to change a flat...

OK, one final shot: top of Nine Mile Hill which is really ten miles long, or Ten Mile Hill which is really nine miles long, can't remember which it is. At any rate, a heroic effort by any rider,
Chapeau, Madam!

Nice shadow photo.
I hope you sat down to avoid the road noise and enjoy the shade.

75 degrees in Portland today. Snow in the forecast for the weekend. ??? I donít believe it, but who knows these days.

Dang, those forecasters are getting good.
