It was cool and windy yesterday but with plenty of sunshine and layered up it was an enjoyable ride.

When all the bike share companies start dropping we will probably see a lot more of these.

Several of my rides go by small easy to access rail yard operations. My 74 Raleigh International shows off pretty good against this switcher engine. Showing off my new wheel set with 28 mm Vitoria corsas .

42 mile ride out to Fillmore thru the citrus orchards. Four days of constant rain really green things up. Great day to ride, clear skies, low 70s, not much wind, till turning for home.

View from South Mountain Rd., looking north.

This is caused by global warming. That's why we call it climate change nowadays.
Hotter summers lead to colder winters.

Concurrently here on the other side of the pond it has barely been below freezing this winter and we only got a measly few centimers of snow that melts straight away.
Excellent riding weather though.

Okay, thanks for the info. I guess I kind of knew that, my remark was completely tongue-in-cheek.

Anyway, since it was way too cold to ride this past week, I decided to try out one of my Christmas presents that I've been rather ambivalent about.

The Playstation would have been a dream gift for me about twenty years ago. But these days, I'm just not that interested in Tech.

I don't even carry a "Smart Phone" - and the only time I carry my Trac-Phone/Flip-phone or whatever it is, is when I'm going on a long ride. Otherwise it just languishes in a drawer until the battery dies.

How... Ever.

I had no idea how far video games had come. The game I got with my PS4 does sportscar racing, which I enjoy, but it also does livery design and... wait for it...

Photography. OMGiddy God!

`Nuff said. Here are some of the images I captured while the weather outside was waiting to kill me:

Something like that was my original thought as well. But, no. It's "Peter Pencil". And this water tower is located in Meije, Holland. Built in 1931, it was one of the first buildings to use sliding form-work, hence the nice graphics in the concrete surface.

Which still sounds kind of dubious in Dutch IMHO.

I've been taking the Batavus out more last weeks as the weather is getting nicer here.
Here is my commute along the canal between Rotterdam and The Hague. This is on top of the bicycle bridge with some more bikes and rowing teams in the background.
