New Freedom train station (being refurbished)
I love the NCR Trail and rode it frequently when I lived in the Baltimore area. Yes, that could be a workout on a single speed. As I recall, there is a slight uphill grade starting around Monkton up to New Freedom. I need to find a day to get back over there because that would be a blast on my Zizzo.

Yes, thanks. Yesterday's afternoon ride was uneventful. Nothing significant to report, really.

As for the tremor in the neighboring island, it was only 5.6 on the Richter scale. Not even an earthquake in my book. The international media, particularly those from non-volcanic countries, always make these constant tremors a big deal. In my childhood I did survive a major one that scored 7.5 on the Richter scale (the scale is logarithmic, as you well know).


Another thing to remember is that Indonesia is a vast country, spanning one-eighth of the planet's circumferece, There could be a real catastrophe in one part and I wouldn't know it here in my own locality.

Thanks for asking though.

Rio Chico Bar, Orgiva.

I wonder what language whoever planted this olive tree spoke? Almost certainly not Spanish. Could it have been Arabic? Or maybe whatever lost Germanic tongue the Visigoths spoke! Or maybe a far flung from Roma peasant dialect of Latin? Or some Hebrew sounding Phoenician language? Beautiful old olive tree/bike rack.

Did the owner of the monster e-bike pay you the customary stud fee?

This is a herd of Origami Bulls at the World Cup in Qatar. After the US was eliminated, they were passed on to people from other nations to continue their journey.

I had to choose between my Dahon Mu and Mezzo D9, I gave up the Dahon but seeing your bike I hope I don't live to regret it....

This was from my 1st out of town trip with my Zizzo Liberte last year. I drove up to Santa Barbara with the bike and explored the city by bike.

I just saved 4 Dahon Stowaways and a Raleigh RSW from the scrap heap.

But I'm way too big and fat for these.

Anybody want a Stowaway?

I tried a pair of fenders in my parts box, but they look kind of janky, so I'll try something else.
I have the same bike. Are the tires hard to change out? I hated the grip shifter so traded it out for 8 speed trigger shifter, much better, and went with swept back handlebars so the grips are closer, love your saddle tho, sleek looking

I didn't have any trouble with changing the tires, just took my time, and made sure not to pinch the tubes. The saddle is a Selle San Marco SKN.
Winter mods are an inexpensive rack & fenders. Once the weather gets decent again, I'll do some mods to make it lighter.
