Not been able to post much recently, too much working and then just sleeping for 11 days straight! (Obviously not sleeping for 11 days straight).
Received this photo in an email from a V-CC member a few days ago, taken 1893/4.....
George[905] (3).jpg



He wanted to know if I could confirm the location. So here are some shots of my Rochester and my neighbour Clive and his 1930 Hercules at the very same spot (The George hotel, Wallingford) some 125 years later.....

Apologies for the late posting, but thought some of you guys might enjoy this photo from 27th. December ride.
If you're going to turn up with a fabulous 1927 Alcyon bicycle, surely you're going to carry it on the back of your 1927 Alvis car.....

I received some tires and tubes in the mail from Tad @petritl
Mounted them on the Terrot and flew out to meet @Cory
Quite a difference in the ride; what a blast!

After shoveling the driveway, The 36 degree temp felt pretty warm, so I decided to pulled the ol' 55 Vette out to take it for a short spin around the neighborhood

Interesting what the snow did to these trees. Reminds me of Dr Suess trees

WoW! That is awesome!
I'm glad I got to ride with you for some of them; hopefully get in a big one while your here.
My record with my old riding buddy @Hippie Mike is the end of the San Gabriel River Trail; but it took us 8 hours: 100 miles round-trip.

Let's see 'em!
A couple of rules though, please:
Must include new picture(s) taken just before, during, or just after the ride.
Keep it fresh: no recycled, old, or duplicate pictures.
Maybe include a description of the bike and the trip?

Dropped the car off at the shop yesterday, but forgot to get some laminating pouches needed to finish a project. Aired up the Conti Ultra Sports and took the ~5mile roundtrip to Office Depot on the ~1947 CroMo Continental w/ Sturmey cartridge bearing drum, Sachs 2spd kicker, SKF cartridge bb, Sachs/Campagnolo crank. Just got back, this bike is always fun to ride:

you can't quick-check anybody's location now, have to pull the drop-down - but I thought that Stingray was Texas.
Growing up, kid at the top of the hill had one just like it - Burnt Orange, and all. I had the purple Rail, and my dad sold it when I got my Wards 10-speed.

We've had the wettest, dreariest winter. My ears are battling OME from combined cedar and mold allergies - luckily one day one ear works, and the next day the other...
But today was the only good day this week, so I headed for the greenway. Started chilly, wearing my wind shell, but the sun finally burned through, and I peeled it at my turnaround stop.
'74 International - only original parts are the Campy headset and Weinmann brake calipers (kind of - the Weinmann's were NOS replacements found cheap on ebay)

At 11:30, 4 miles from done, I kicked it into granny, left the pavement for the single-track and ended up where my nose was leading me

God bless Texas

Specially packed for my bike bag - I gave him a tip
