Almost home! Santa Paula, California after a 30+ mile round trip to the coast. It has been very warm here and although I love living on a hill with panoramic views, the last few blocks are leg burners with 42 x 26 gears.

it is a good thread

while walking down a street in Quebec City, not a crazy busy touristy street jammed w souvenir shops, but rather a more common street w everyday business traffic but of course still many street cafes, I was admiring some old architecture but what really got my interest was this old bike. look at that fork. I looked around & across the street was a bike shop. told Wifey I had to go in. turned out to be a a pretty typical neighborhood bike shop with two ppl working with a mechanic busy up in the back. I was impressed to see so many Brooks saddles on display for sale. must be for a good reason, as-in they sell them!

Well, it IS Hollywood, after all. Nothing serious, but he apparently gets a date any time he wants one. He has no idea how lucky he is...

Not bike related but I picked up a couple of Davidson Star D tripods from a local today for a photography project. These were made in the 1950's I believe.

LOL... no, not even close. Just one very nice camera (Leica D-lux Type 109) and many decades of practice.

Took the old Super Course down PCH to Malibu yesterday. Great ride, great old bike. The ugly clamp on bottle holder on the seatpost is temporary. I expected it to be a lot hotter, a 2 bottle day. It was only hot at the end, 91° back in Camarillo, so glad I had the second bottle. Views along PCH, Magu Rock, seen in lots of TV commercials, my Raleigh behind Neptune's Net. Good times!

Dead carbon bikes following today's Cool Breeze Century Ride. Poor things, had carbonitis. If they were steel bikes, they'd still be going strong. I only hope the riders survived. Oh, the humanity!

Yup, exactly what my life would have been like had I stayed in California. Cheers, man. Appreciate what you have...

Ooc, What make/model? I do like that color!

Couldn't sleep and went to watch the Sun rise thru all the smoke. Stopped at Multnomah falls lodge for breakfast.

^^^^^ Talk about your "timeless" shot - except for the stack of bottled water, the New Balance shoes and the digital effect of the photo, this could easily have been taken in 1977.

My old Ross MTB stopping on a sculpture of a turtle, then stopping to observe the destruction of a legendary lace factory, and finally the Bullmoose cockpit. Visiting my family in the USA for a couple weeks.
