I continue to try different set ups to alleviate spinal issues, especially neck, and arthritic thumb pain. This is my ti Airborne Zeppelin. I really like the Velo-Orange Porteur handlebar, This is my second one. I am pretty sure this one will stay. I had never been able to use 28mm tires before, due to lack of brake bridge clearance. With these wheels, 19.8 internal width, I have a couple of mm clearance with the tires fully inflated. These are GK slickclinchers

The London Eye as seen from St. James Park


As I understand it, there was a statue on this pedestal that was removed and it is now used for rotating art installations. Not sure what they call this one or know the artist.

this is my test hill around 22% grade. on my other bosch powered e bike I could jsut make it up putting out 450 watts but I could only spin 30rms as my gearing is not low enough. the new bike with more torque I could just do it putting out 540 watts and spinning 60 rpms .but it was still a bear.

Silver Lake in Barnard, Vermont. About a half mile away from my campground. Stopped for a snack from the country store behind me before heading to camp. Rained most of the next day, so I took the day off.

Humidity blew off around 7:00 and I got a nice 20 mile sunset cruise before it got dark.

Long boats on the River Lea. Tottenham, London.

Many of them have bikes strapped to the roof.

And some have roof gardens.

Took some coffee and a muffin down to the lake to enjoy the view of the sun trying to burst though the clouds and shine on all the boats in the Marina. Lake Ontario, west of Toronto.

San Gabriel River, Pico Rivera CA, just south of L.A.

Detail. Locals don't seem too happy about it either.
