rode my Mountain bike down Alameda Creek in Fremont/Newark ca.. they put sheep and goats in the creek to eat all the brush. they do a great job. rode around Quarry Lakes Park which is to the left side of these picture as well . probably a bit over 15 miles total.

funny, when I told my buddy who has lived here for 20 years that I did not ride the creek trail all the way to the Bay (San Francisco Bay) he was surprised that the creek ended up running into the bay.... I really have to wonder where he thinks it may have stopped.

My g/f and I took the regular route ( less than a mile) to Crescent Park on the Red River ( originates in the U.S. and a rare river to run South to North) came across some deer on a front lawn ( very common in our area) then some ducks once we arrived at the park. Heather was riding her 80's beach cruiser ( Custom with a 3 speed twist Shimano) and I on the 1967 Centennial edition CCM 2 speed kickback. Slight forest fire haze from western Canada ( smokey sunset). Courtesy of the handlebar radio, we were treated to "Vinyl Tap" a vintage radio show by Randy Bachman ( musical artist once in the Guess Who/Winnipeg band, then BTO ( Bachman, Turner, Overdrive) with music from the 1950's and 1960's. Groovy!

Took my finally ( still waiting on the chain guard from the plater) finished wing bar for a short zip. It feels good. Not wired up, experience has proven that it can have all 4 batteries ( I'm usually a freak for stuff to work) can make a circuit on their own and heat up in that tube....dang..... but I will run some cloth wire up to the switch one day soon. WAY nicer ride than my Hawthorne air flow. Those flow cycles look cool/eye candy, but a wonky ride in my humble opinion. I still need to buff out the frame some. View attachment 1027710

@piercer_99 Sweet night pics!

Nice canal ride on the 41 New World out to Gilbert. View attachment 1027838 View attachment 1027839 View attachment 1027840 View attachment 1027841 View attachment 1027842 View attachment 1027843

I’ve posted pics of this “couch” during the daylight. It may be even cooler at night. :cool: View attachment 1027844 View attachment 1027845

You can even get some Hamachi late night. View attachment 1027846

That's great how you walked out all the way out there ; I'm presuming without dropping the 41 into the canal? Nice. Now just do this during monsoon season at sunrise/sunset for the shot of a lifetime. :cool: Or maybe just photoshop it? LOL.

Had the day off and the Colson Custom has been rollin' smooth, so I took it for a quick spin around town to pay the intenet bill. Also met up with Moms for a bite at our local Cuban bakery Merengue. As I roll up, the first words out of her mouth were "I wouldn't even THINK about stealing that rusty thing. Pass!" Thanks Mom...:persevere:

thanks to @KevinsBikes for the wheelset, @New Mexico Brant for the bike to build, @Frosty for the crank set, and my good friend Jim (Mr. Schwinn) McSweeney for straightening up the fork for me. Thanks to my bride for supporting me in my bicycle hobby. Thanks to the Cabe for a place for us all to come together.

Night ride on the Pierce Racer. Swapped out the bar for a Torrington set, added a couple lights for safety. Probably need to print up a warning label.

"Danger, this old bike is really fast, hang on!"

The Pierce weighs in at 28.1 pounds as it sits, the Westfield weighs in at 38.2 pounds. Both have the same gearing, and the Westy is really fast. The Pierce feels like it is going to come out from under you and leave you behind. Really fun.
