That is one spectacular place! Is that Fuji-like volcano Mt. Bachelor?

I, on the other hand, was down at sea level a continent away. Cold Spring Harbor from Laurel Hollow, NY.

This one is yours for only $600. A bargain at half the price!

Wow. I used to get a ride to school in one of those. We regarded it as a death trap.

Cool car, though. I'd love to have one today. Another example of Nash being ahead of its time.

Kinda took it easy this weekend. 60 mile ride and not a lot of climbing ... but riding along the Pacific Coast was sublime.

An 86 year old man I met today while out riding.

Note the harmonica in his right hand. He could play.

An old guy havin fun with a friend

Bikes are of similar vintage and size.
The darker blue one is original paint, the one in forground a CyclArt repaint.
We rode a vintage 2 day supported ride (a year ago), hence the jerseys.
You meet the nicest people on BF.
