great photo op, too easily ridden past


American (also called San Diego) IPAs are a bit different from Bass.
Not to offend, but they've moved way forward on hops nose and complexity, and most are actually doubles in alcohol content.
Our extreme in bitter (in a good way) is Stone, yet they offer Stone Ruination IPA which is liquid gold smoothness and lingering light malt.

Pliny the Elder from Russian River Brewery by most American agreement is the pinnacle of balanced complex hops, and my buddy also brews from their kits, though this recipe is a bit over the top for the tailgating crew.
some of the hops they provide look like you should be smoking them.

Ballast Point Brewery offers their complex Sculpin to give Pliny a run for its money, and likewise, their Manta Ray competes with Ruination.
West Coast IPA is also in the best I've ever tried.

English IPA's have also movie d on from 'Bass'; American style versions are 'de rigeur' over here, Thornbridge breweries 'Jaipur' is my personal favourite, but Cider rules the roost for me if truth be told.

On a 79 Twinn today with my son in Huntington Beach CA. Got to ride with him 2 days in a row. I'm ecstatic :) View attachment 850332

Nice! I picked up an early '70s Twinn a couple of years ago. Wish I could talk someone around here into riding it with me. You would think with 4 kids between the ages of 13 and 21 that it wouldn't be that hard... :rolleyes:

Rode solo on the Ibis>>> today early, climbing 3300 feet & just under 23mi. We are burning up without much relief in sight here in Utah. Need rain bad.
An old mining drift at 9000 feet offered up some shady climbing relief.

Out on the '64 Moulton Deluxe' yesterday.
Great ride with the 'portable cycles group' of the V-CC around South Oxfordshire.
My usual V-CC ride was cancelled, but took the opportunity to ride with this group, mainly on cycle paths and trails; some of the downhill sections were on loose gravel and bumpy terrain, great fun on these small wheelers!
On my way to the start point.....

Some interesting machines at the start, I've never seen a 'Micro' before.....

Or a Moulton tandem, a regular modern spaceframe solo machine with a bolt-on centre section.....

A really nice example with 11-speed hub gearing.....

A brace of Dawes 'Kingpins' too.....

Great ride, just under 40 miles including my to and from to the start/finish point.
My eyes were certainly opened to the capability of these machines, and by the cost of a new one, upto £17,000 GBP for the full spec stainless steel spaceframe models!
Frightening!
