A few pictures from my ride on Tuesday. It was 65 degrees in Southern New England (although gray and overcast) so I stretched it out to 72 miles, my longest since August.



Cedar Swamp Rd Sterling CT
This road is really fun to ride on!



Wylie School House Ekonk Rd voluntown CT The bell is from a local church and was cast in 1840, 10 years before the building of the school. Ekonk rd is fun too, but it is always windy and uphill coming back about 30 miles from home.

Amazon. It's not bike specific. I'm still not certain how I'm going to affix it. Hot glue would work but I don't have a glue gun.

Crappy cellphone pic from my MTB ride this morning. It was ~30 deg, I was the first person out on the trail. I saw them at the top of the most challenging part of the trail, so it was a convenient time to stop and hang out with them for a minute. The little one kept hiding behind the bigger one, but they didn't run away, just kept watching and gradually coming closer until they got about 10ft away from me.

These are from two or three different rides...

This didn't photo well because of sizing, but it's a new sculpture by the convention center:

On the first, note the design closely based on the Raleigh Twenty; Sturmey Archer 8 speed hub, Shimano Nexus dymano hub, home made LED lights. It was new last August, and has about 3400 miles on it now.

I'll be curious if anyone other than Italuminum can explain the second one.



Got a leaker there huh? I once rode a Harley.

Dumbos are cool, my boys had Hooded and a Blue, rats make great pets; much better than hamsters, G.pigs and such.
