I rode my modern Schwinn Corvette custom with early Schwinn bars, sparkle grips and crate seat, reflector/period sissy bar. Wheels are 24" and these parts make it comfy for my 6' frame. Plus they aren't taking up valuable space laying around.;)

The gentleman to my right(your left) is Ryan. He has been putting this ride on for 16 years!! :cool::cool: He rides a Nirve Switchblade that pulls a trailer/stereo to provide tunes. There are people waiting for us along the route to greet all of us as we ride through town. Sorry, didn't stop for pics of them. Maybe next week. They look it up to see the route we take so they can greet us, which is pretty cool...

@tripple3 Nice pics of Edison! Blue stacks.

@dnc1 @Sven I showed my kids the pics from the Windsor Great Park ride. They got a kick out of them. They said they recognized the Boneshaker from a book they have on bikes. They pulled this out:

Great to see a real one, and not just a drawing in a book!!

Explored around the back of Kyrene tonight. Found some more tracks with cars.

Great to see your kids showing an interest!
Look out for some photos I’ll be posting from an event on the 7th. July, there may even be something similar to that crazy ladies machine in their book.

Out in Oxford on Tuesday, I had a day off, and thought I'd promote our Wallingford festival of cycling in the city of my birth, exactly 53 years after the event.
Took out the Rochester as a PR tool and rode around visiting all the cycle shops in town.
After doing that I thought I'd do a little sightseeing around town; You may think Oxford, with its student population, is a great place to cycle. It's certainly full of cyclists, but the infrastructure is pretty poor, sadly.
Still, it's a fabulous city, with beautiful buildings and streets.

I made a little detour off near the 'Camera' to capture an image of this doorway. My late maternal grandmother used to work behind this door when I was a little lad. These carvings are beautiful, I was terrified of them as a 3 year old, no longer as a 53 year old!

Beautiful day, a day of reflection and enjoyment.
Enjoy your rides folks, wherever you can.

Looks like you had a great turn out. I like the " Monkeyarm Fashions" duct tape shirt. I am sure it felt wonderful during your ride.

Glad you like them! It's a great way to take a deep breath and relax in the middle of the week. I've made it to every ride the last 2 years(including Moonlight Rides). Rode a different bike to each ride last year and going to try again this year. Sadly, we don't have the ancient architecture that I enjoy seeing in your posts.

Didn't hear the head count for the ride but had to be over 100. I think there is a running total of miles ridden and total number of participants since this ride started 16 years ago. Maybe on Facebook. The shirt was actually pretty comfortable. A bit warm perhaps but the tape made it kinda stiff so there was an air space between body & shirt. Like wearing a bell. I was going to make Duct tape shorts and cowboy hat too but ran out of time. Had to pick a bike and get it ready for the ride. I have until next year to make the shorts & hat...

@dnc1 your Rochester is a wonderful machine. Very beautiful, I like the wood pedal blocks and the extra long rear axle.

Is the tail light kerosene as well as the head light?
