Here I am on another road in Alberta while riding my Catrike. I did both a 200km and 300km one summer on the Catrike. But I prefer my Trek.

Happiness is...




On a hot day
the sign of your dreams comes along.
Also a pic of a stream tributary to the larger.
Downstream from some ‘fast water’ I saw an acoustic guitar stuck on midstream rocks. I didn’t get that layed-back.

You should, your Palouse expedition was the incentive for me to go weeks early and eval if I could do the ride you planned. Then I couldn't for reasons beyond my control. But good memories of riding the area on my own. Thx.

Couldn't resist when I saw your B\W.

@cccorlew - that is so awesome!!!

Riding is what it is all about really,
but hanging around the vintage bike room tinkering and planning
can be fun, too.

Not often jealous, but I would love a bike by Bill Holland. Doesn't look like the fibre bikes currently on the website.

Same bike, just a bit different angle, His work is full of integrity. Carbon lugs attached to tubes designed to match the characteristics of how I ride. Can't beat that! But, i wish the peaches were not all sold out.. His

The bike is nice but the room decor is sweet, especially the shaker table.

Yep, my wife built the table out of cheery and birdseye maple. We use it as a dining room table, but not in use the top folds in half and becomes the compact side table in the image. When we want to use it as a dining table it unfolds and then slides into place for seating for 6. She is talented.
