Ha! You sure you didn't read my blog post on Riding the Catskills, thinktubes? I mentioned that that's exactly what the intersection reminded me of... the scene from one of my favorite films.

Nope, just a fan of the film.

It's a great final scene.

Been a while since I worked on something with a coaster brake. Have a fellow (in his 50's) associated with our Boy Scout Troop, an Eagle Scout, but with mental disabilities. Living on a VERY limited budget, and last week, someone stole his 59 Schwinn...his ONLY transportation. So, picked up a hulk at the CoOp, and have been cobbling together a new ride for him. Struggling with mismatched wheels, oversized tires that want to rub on the fenders, missing bits, but getting there.

Photo from Saturday the 2nd of November 2013. - After a cold and windy Northwest central Indiana ten mile shake down ride.

Pulled a wicked nice 1972 MERCIAN VINCITORE from a 40 year sleep.

After a two week total tear-down, some eBay goodies, a few trips to the LBS, a Selle Anatomica saddle and she's up and running.

When I ride it, my face hurts from smiling..

That's a great ride holiday76! Golden Gate Bridge and Bolinas Ridge.
The "aggressive Cows" signage stems from an incident in which a cow, upset by a dog near her calf, knocked down the dog's owner!

yep, we took caltrain up and road over the golden gate, up Mt Tam, along the ridge to the bolinas ridge dirt trail, then eventually down to Point Reyes. Originally we were going to ride to Bodega Bay where we were meeting our wives but we ran out of light. Lots of climbing though!

That happened to me the one and only time I tried Redbull. And Every time I ride my Paramount.
Congrats on finding a great ride.
