Tuesday evenings are sailboat race noght on the lake, and when the weather is nice, as it was last night, it can get crowded.

Beware: Non-C&V content: 31 miles on the fixed gear last night, including a quarter mile long 12% grade. Boo. Yeah.

Not exactly sure about these sculptures...

Doohickie,

It looks like many of your rides are done near/after dusk. Is that because of the scorching Texas heat?

I think it's funny, because your pictures make the Fort Worth area look quite nice, but I'm not sure I'd be able to bear the heat again.

I always like Doohickies ride posts. They look like one of my favorite types of riding, rambling around your city with frequent stops to take in the scenery.

Grounded a pedal about .5 mile from home today. Bike jumped about a foot to the right, but my mad skillz saved the day



If I'd have hit the deck, it would've been the first time since 1999 - and the first time ever I'd have crashed on my left hand side.

Still going...

Ouch. I did the same thing a few days ago rushing to work. I took a big chuck out of my Time pedal. Not my first time with pedal strike so I too didn't crash.

I met up with these angry dudes on a pier in Santa Cruz, California, when I was out to San Jose for an interview last week.



I really liked it out there!

That is exactly the reason. The group I ride with on Sunday nights is called the Night Riders.

Yeah, my favorite too.

As mentioned, we do our weekly pub crawl on Sunday. We meet at a dive bar called The Chat Room. This is what passes for ambiance there:



Almost 100 degrees today; the ride was a little smaller than usual, although still a good crowd, probably 30-40.



Our first stop:



Yes, folks, this is what a dive bar looks like.



A flat on the way.



Traffic on the trail



Stop #2 has a nice rooftop patio. It was their grand re-opening. We usually make two stops but this one was added in the middle of the ride.



On to Stop #3



Their "patio" is a covered area between the old train station and the boarding area. Yes, it is still an active train station.

YES- a rain barrel with a tap at the bottom- where did you get it? I want one that filters into the toilet if I open it up.

It would have made more sense with an appropriate quote the first time.

I was doing my banking and running a few errands today and this little park, waterfall, and ponds sit right in the middle of our down town... it is a very popular place for people to come during the day and evening and one of many favourite spots to take pictures as I don't have a white garage door but borrow one from time to time.

I was just puzzled trying to figure out how the question was related to my post (which immediately preceded the question).
