I met @Cory this morning to ride to the HB Pier.
We chatted a bit and took pics while he drank his coffee.
Then I rode away to go to the end of Newport's Balboa peninsula; the Wedge.

I met my Sweetie at her Mom's house for Mothers' Day Hugs.
I rode to the Circle City Ride in Orange from here.
Great day of riding Velvet; more than 60+ miles.

I am in need of such a mechanic; How Much??
Price per bike? How often does it need maintenance? How many miles can I go before it needs it again?
I need one of those mechanics. How much? Priceless!! Price per bike? Alot. How often? Often. How many miles? It depends.
I probably shouldn't have promised him that rose garden, but he did voluntary legal work for me so he earned it. I also love to work on bikes so win/win.

21st Century Hawthorne Flyer got let out of the cage today for a couple hours. About 37mi. of riding inland towards the Santa Ana's up San Diego Creek.

Fun Mother’s Day ride on the canal with the whole family. Zip tied a basket on the bars of my 1990 Specialized Rockhopper Comp and my wife happily overlooked the inoperable front shifter. :)

We stopped by the Roadrunner on our way to what the kids call “the other far away park”.

So much fun riding my grandpa’s 41 World on the canal with my wife and kids. :cool:

a couple of cool bikes showed up on yesterday's group ride. Stevo and I rode in from his house to turn it into 28 needed miles.
The greenways are blown out with run-off from monsoon rains, and yesterday was a beautiful window between the rains.
First off, the lead group in the sprint totally smoked me yesterday - I had to be a minute behind them.
But a couple of bikes worth showing - first, this beautiful lugged steel Waterford with first-gen Campy Chorus (came in with the pack).

At coffee stop, this great project bike turned out, a TiGg'd steel mountain bike frame, now on 700c wheels; a different 700c steel unicrown front fork with TiGg'd boss added for disc brake, unpainted (hasn't yet added the boss for a rear brake caliper)
Those blue-anodized levers are Paul Components Engr.

and a really nice job on a smart brazed-stainless-tubing porter rack

As project bikes go, Stevo rode his Schwinn World Sport frame built with SRAM 2-speed auto, dyno lamps, though he may have found a Mercian frame to move all the parts over.
This bike has 2 gears, 78" and 55", and Steve made a very respectable showing on it, finishing about a minute behind me and far ahead of the pack.
It also does a great job on the northside rolling hills.

my '74 International - all the parts on this bike once sported my '76 Grand Prix

I rode my 79 Suburban to the pharmacy to pick up my prescription.
This is a lovely shot of a gloomy, getting ready to rain day, and a bunch of buzzards sitting on the roof of the church.

Stared to sprinkle, parked under this conveyor. Had to wait about 20 minutes to get my prescription filled

I thought I was gonna beat the rains back home. WRONG!

Despite getting a little drenched, it was still a good ride.

Shots from yesterday and today.
Out on the Vindec for a shopping run first thing.
Got caught up in the classic vehicle show cruise through the town centre, one lady shouted "I like the look of your engines!" as I cycled past; she was stood near the opticians I hasten to add.
Went down on the Rochester late morning to scout the bicycle sale. Found a 1" to 1 1/8" head tube shim I needed for a project I'm working on, Nice!
Then went out for a 15 miler on the 'Morot' ending back at the vehicle show to meet some people.
Here's Rob's Lambretta in all it's glory; it started first time yesterday morning after our efforts on Saturday night.....

This was my favourite of all those amazing machines on display (although the sound of the Murcielago was an awesome experience).
This is"Betsie", an acquaintance built her from the remains of an Austin 7, buried in a garden for almost 50 years.....

Out on the Vindec again last night and today.....

No clouds and finally no wind tonight on the canal. Felt great slipping through the still air on my 41 World.

We're all going to be using that great camera angle soon Pete!
Keep on riding!
I’m in too. I’m not too proud not to copy the good ideas. Gave it my nighttime twist with steaming Kyrene :sunglasses:
