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:

Took a tour of Brackenridge park and the repurposed Pearl Brewery on the 1897 Wasp. I like the way it looks like it’s going fast when sitting still

The rough trails caused the spokes to seat fully and then the rims got a little wobbly.
Stopped by a bike shop where the tech graciously loaned me his spoke wrench.
With lacing wooden rims it’s easier to tighten them as needed rather than destroy
the rim with too much torque.

Bulverde, TX
a glorious south Texas day, and why we live here.
Started off cold, but the sun quickly warmed, and the air followed.
Invited my buddy Randi out for 25 miles on the greenway.

of course you know where we stopped for lunch - if you're going to be in a rut, this isn't a bad one

so we enticed him over for a photo op - he left after this and took a nap - think I might, too

Took a ride to check out the Alameda Creek flow after last night's storm...

Just about at high flow level here...

Nearby Quarry Lakes are full...

Before the storm, Feb. 9th, the Alameda Creek Alliance group conducted a steelhead rescue and netted a 25" female for transport upstream to a spawning site...rare occurrence around here.

'Twas a foggy, frosty morning for a ride to work at 6.30am......

Eventually the sun came up though.....

I caused much amusement on my arrival at work; not because I was riding a "ridiculous old bicycle", they're used to that, but because my beard was covered with a layer of ice!
Should be a warm ride home this afternoon though, It's now 14 degrees Celsius!
