One of last week’s rides was a ceremonial birthday excursion. I wound up hitting my mark, plus a fair bit after. A nice, wet adventure. :)

Needed a French bike to celebrate the start of The Tour. So I went and bought one today. Made it rideable (Swapped wheels, adjusted brakes and derailleurs) and did a 10 miler around the neighborhood

Rode 41 miles today around Dallas area today. This snap was taken when I passed through downtown Dallas.

I am finally posting a ride on the day I rode it! Usual route of 22 miles. Includes the MUP along the Rappahannock. Oh its 4th of July weekend!
https://cimg4.ibsrv.net/gimg/bikefor...ab792dbbee.jpg
Usually take the Pin but The Red and White works for the weekend. I know, same old setting but this is summer!
https://cimg2.ibsrv.net/gimg/bikefor...741ca7b56d.jpg

The ride would not be appropriate without a visit to the grave of George Washingtons mother, the first project of the Daughters of the Revolution (DAR).
https://cimg5.ibsrv.net/gimg/bikefor...b9cbaaa6cd.jpg

No, it is not a Kaiser helmet!

Also passed by Kenmore Estate, that of Mr Lewis who used all his money to help George finance the war.

15 mile ride with Le Tour De Ham this morning, good group ride with some interesting sights and included crossing an apparently little-used pedestrian bridge over the interstate.

Easy pace ride this morning in downtown Birmingham with a friend and his daughter. It was her first time on a bike in 9 years. 5 1/2 miles this time around.

Is that a hot coffee thermos I see on your bike?

botty kayer 07-03-22 12:36 PM

I didn't plan for it to be, but today's ride turned out to feature art and animals. First up was beer delivery dray horse Jacob, who was the only animal I planned to see, as he's located near Tower bridge where I crossed the river from south to north.
https://cimg2.ibsrv.net/gimg/bikefor...18fbbbf2bd.jpg
https://cimg5.ibsrv.net/gimg/bikefor...9a7acbd220.jpg
I then weaved up through the city district but nothing caught my eye amongst the glass and steel structures, turned off for a brief stint along the Regents Canal and was greeted by something a little different, sharks! Hmmm a save the Hackney sharks installation and what looks a squash on a barge. So what's going on here then?
https://cimg0.ibsrv.net/gimg/bikefor...0deda533fb.jpg
I was non the wiser at the time, but since getting back and asking the internet, it seems the shark was part of an award winning group of singing sharks that were originally placed in nearby Hoxton, but the local Council objected and so they've been given temporary shelter here while the legal wrangling continues. More info on this 1st world crisis here: https://www.hackneygazette.co.uk/new...ington-7912564
The giant squash is apparently an inflatable theatre barge, ahhh of course, obviously. Seen here doing its inflating thing: https://www.dezeen.com/2018/08/09/an...-architecture/
Nearby I find a new pin and thread art work, I've seen a number of these dotted across London over recent months, and they are by Perspicere. Impressive the images you can create from straight lines of thread wound around pins, I bet they are really good with an etch-a-sketch.
https://cimg8.ibsrv.net/gimg/bikefor...662e1380c9.jpg
I was utterly hopeless with an Etch-a-sketch, never managing anything more complex than a two dimensional brick. Which is a seamless segue into my next artwork discovery, one by the brilliant Brickflats. I saw this artist featured in a recent National newspaper and I think these are rather excellent. The artist finds a missing brick in a wall, and puts a brick sized artwork into the space highlighting London expensive and cramped living conditions. I came across one today, here it is.....
https://cimg9.ibsrv.net/gimg/bikefor...8e16fc0bf6.jpg
You can see it right? Look upwards from the handlebars.......*enhance*
https://cimg2.ibsrv.net/gimg/bikefor...1cd3c89c76.jpg
https://cimg4.ibsrv.net/gimg/bikefor...a2a0d8d75a.jpg
The original article was here: https://www.theguardian.com/artanddesign/gallery/2022/mar/12/cramping-my-style-street-art-that-highlights-london-living-conditions-in-pictures .London has a lot of missing bricks so I shall keep my eyes peeled for more of these.
I cycle back through business district on my home, pausing only briefly to snap this rather menacing looking cat in a space suit,
https://cimg6.ibsrv.net/gimg/bikefor...e41b04b040.jpg
I knew about Laika the first dog in space, and know they'd sent monkeys into orbit too, but that got me wondering if any cats had been sent to space. Once home I discover that yes, cats have been into orbit. Felicette a French stray is the only cat to have survived a trip to space back in 1963. I was pleased to hear it was not a one way trip for the kitty, but that pleasure was short lived as I immediately discover that a few months after her trip she was euthanized so the scientific team could examine her brain, harsh!

It was nice to hear though Felicette has not been forgotten, a kickstart campaign was started to fund a bronze artwork in the intrepid kitty's honour and it now stands at the International Space University in Strasbourg, France. Full story here: https://www.smithsonianmag.com/smart...ial-180974062/
I only popped out for a short ride with the mission to get some milk on the way home, but saw horses, sharks, various artworks and ended up falling down a rabbit hole reading about cats in space. It never ceases to amaze me where you can end up after a days cycling..:lol:. Thankfully I remembered the milk.

Yes indeed.
I'd like to see some of the mtb entries.
I was always a roadie on gravel when needed.
Let's see what ya got?
Sorry this was in response to NorthBend (Matt) about what bike you're riding on Cino this week.

First time out in about three weeks and it was hot so I only did 13 miles. I know, pretty wimpy and lazy. Maybe a flat At 8 Miles was my punishment. I did get a picture down the road of a display a veteran sets up to honor our military for the Fourth of July. My blue bike with red tires blends in nicely.

Never a dull ride in and around London eh botty kayer ? Great post as always and thanks.

I took the Stars and Stripes Paletti out for what I think might be 17.76 miles (only measures to tenths) and stopped by for a visit with TJ at the UVA Rotunda. I also pieced together a pretty spiffy red, white and blue kit today but thought I’d spare everyone the selfie.

Edit: downloaded and it was 17.77 miles. Missed it by that much!

I'm riding a Woodrup touring bike this year. Main reason being that I'm riding home from Hot Springs after the ride. I'll need to carry stuff, you know...

I seem to gravitate toward riding at White Rock Lake lately. It's a beautiful area.

This pic from yesterday's ride.
Rides on Friday ,Saturday,Sunday and today (Monday) total up to 121 miles.

Nice De Rosa there bironi looks like some manly gearing.

Just got some RH Rat Trap Pass tires for my old Stumpjumper Classic and took it out for a good climb. Seemed like a slug compared to our Cino bikes (posted on the previous page) but turns out, it wasn’t really much slower. I might bring it out for one of the Cino days if I can sneak it past Dave.

Both the black and silver bottles are a generic double wall type water bottle. Keeps liquids pretty cold over a couple hours ride.

Sometimes I do carry other than water like tea and occassionally coffee. It would need to be iced coffee in this Dallas, TX heat.

I guess they would serve for keeping drinks hot for a time as well like a thermos.

I like how synchronized they all are (seriously, look at the angles relative to one another), and the fact that the person on the oar closest the cox has a different style then the other three.

Not the typical holiday on the lake for some reason. Normally there'd be a whole lot of boats out there.

My daughter rowed 4s at NYU. She would tell me that the crew would work hard on that synchronization because of those rare moments when it all came together and the could feel the power and “hear the train”. Must have been magical..

jamesdak 07-05-22 04:02 PM

Back out again this morning on the final "patriotic" bike. The 37 year old Raleigh Team USA. Ran it for 40 miles to include dirt roads over in the drier area of the valley. Lot's of fun.

https://cimg4.ibsrv.net/gimg/bikefor...4ab71d3cc6.jpg
Still have it set up in the gravel configuration

Love the smell of fresh sage!
