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.

Our little 'Bridge of Sighs'.....

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.
@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?

Pedal blocks are actually rubber. Both lamps are carbiide, but rear has been converted to electric at some point in its history.

@dnc1 The rear tail light is fantastic and the mounting is so unique.

@SKPC ^^^Great looking single track in the white Birch!!^^^

Hanging out in the dark with Kyrene tonight. View attachment 1018254 A kit fox trotted by and rock hopped up a path to the golf course. Giant ears and tail. —————- 1941 New World
It's French @Miq, made by 'Pelissier', it is one of those dual lens type lamps; a clear lens facing forwards and a facetted red rear lens.
Mounting bracket came with it when I purchased it at an event in France last year.

I took the 1936 Colson Commander out for a spin. View attachment 1018367
Here’s the story on Lifeguard Tower W.
View attachment 1018368
I like, that the memorial plank was saved.
It was a great day out riding with friends, but not so much for Tower W.
That sure sucks about the tower. Sounds like some dip&#!^s burned it down. Kinda like the jokers who tag over the gorgeous nature sites in Arizona. Just felt like destroying something beautiful. http://www.fox10phoenix.com/news/arizona-news/parts-of-oak-creek-canyon-defaced-by-graffiti

Yep, that’s bull shut!
I’m thinking a homeless guy with a campfire at Tower W.
A few years back, some kooks tried to knock down the Mexican Hat up in Utah.
I mean, they named the town after that rock, so you can see why they would try it, but, COME ON!
Find something else more constructive to do, like fix up an old bike and go for a ride.

Happy 1st day of Summer.
The longest day of the year; I rode the same loop, Wedge to Water-tower 3 times; another Century, on a different bike.
1939 Twin-bar Tiki Cruiser, Rust Junkie Special, hot rod roadster.
Gear 24/9 is faster than I typically ride; had a blast!
It was raining on me on the 1st loop; brings to mind a song to sing while I ride!
