@piercer_99 It's getting almost full! Lit up my canal ride back from Kyrene.

Check out the reflection of the night hawks flying just above the water catching bugs in the pic below. You can also just barely see a guy fishing, standing under the power lines pole.

With Memorial Day fast approaching, I rode out to see my Dad's stone at the local cemetery. He was a radio operator, calling in airstrikes during the Korean War. He had an old bike that he rode growing up in the '30's and '40's, and it was old already by then. When the family farm got sold back in the 90's, he asked me if I wanted it. Not being into bikes much back then,

I said no. Regret that every day. The old Hickory tree in the last pic is at the cemetery in our little Ohio town.

Beautiful CCM Nashman! Fantastic. It rained hard early, then cleared up and started blowing 30. Most of my ride north up the coast I got sandblasted by relentless wind, so I flipped it on the prewar Schwinn Excelsior and ran fast to the south, but was looking for something/anything to get in back of after reversing direction again. I endeavored to persevere.
This particular bike I don't get much chance to ride, but have taken a keen liking to it after a couple days back in my posession. The wheels are light and stiff so the bike feels really fast, smooth and quiet. It loves to be leaned over hard on good pavement while hanging on to the end of the bars and weighting the back of the saddle. All these old bikes have distinct personalities and are a joy to ride.

Looks like a rocket!! A true blend of the old and new. I was once brave and young and rode like that...ha!!

@mrg I’m stuck trying to post after a pic of lower Yosemite falls. Really? :p That looks like an amazing ride you guys had. I wish I was there.

@SKPC Love seeing pics of the miles your cranking on the Hawthorn. Great riding this week!

@fattyre and @Freqman1 your black and chrome bikes go great one after the other. @fattyre really well composed wet pavement pics!

Did my ride to Kyrene and mostly just saw fishermen. Drafted behind an electric bike for while. Asked the guy if he was cool with it and proceeded to fly down the canal 4” from his rear mudguard. :D He said we were doing 20 mph but it felt like 90. Fun being “pulled” along and there were many times when I had to stop peddling to ease my speed back from getting too close. After 1/2 mile I bailed. Too much concentration rolling inches away from a stranger’s back tire going 20 mph in the dark...
