    Chilly, damp, and grey tonight - so this Raleigh 3-speed is in its natural habitat. The street lamp gives the green an odd tone.

    I like this bike for evening rides because I can run dual headlights - battery and Dynohub, as well as the standard tail lamp. It also has those big Panaracer tires that soak up any bumps that escape my headlights.

    Went for a test ride after work, getting dark early around here now. Sorry for the bad photo. I could say that this one has a lot of zippity doo dah day, but that wouldn't do it justice. Lets just say that this is one bad ass mother !^@#er.

    Took a ride to a local landmark. These rabbits are bronze, about 15' tall and have miscellaneous items imbedded into the figures. I found a bicycle pedal in the leg.

    Just finished breathing new life into this 48 Columbia and took it out for a celebratory evening jaunt downtown. Need to get back into the coaster brake and add more grease. #squeeky

    ~also need to find a fender light for her.

    It's very unusually dry, and surprisingly warm over here at the moment! But chilly and damp is a very apt description of its native habitat.

    First ride in 3 weeks.
    I broke a bone in my right thumb whilst falling over in the shower.
    That's one elbow and one thumb so far this year, I do hope these things don't really come in threes!
    Anyway, out on a little jaunt after dark, around 8 miles round trip to the Benson Veteran Cycle Club annual social evening and presentation.
    This is along my usual commute route.
    Apologies for poor outdoor shots, I have no excuses, the cider came later...... WP_20171014_18_37_08_Pro.jpg

    Plus fours and vintage shoes tonight..... WP_20171014_18_25_03_Pro.jpg

    Some interesting stuff on display tonight...... WP_20171014_21_40_47_Pro.jpg WP_20171014_21_50_22_Pro.jpg
    I'll post some more stuff on these and more in the Antique and Lightweight forums later, help may be required?

    Went back to the Murrieta car show. Rode the 80 King Sting with a yellow band 2 speed today. That's a 49 Buick, a superior built flawless custom. 073e6a60c038f5c2b3aa129d227001a4.jpg

    Well, half way through October and no real fall color yet. We had a chilly August, but a warm September and a fairly warm start to October. Mild winter?
