21st Century Hawthorne for 48 spirited miles. Mild temps and fairly calm winds presented good riding conditions. Out to the coast, down to Balboa Peninsula, floated the ferry, pedaled up Newport back bay(a favorite section) then inland up San Diego Creek towards the Santa Ana mountains past UCI to my flip spot, then back out to the coast, north, then back up the SA river inland . Another fine long pedal. Carried me well & issue free.

Just getting back to biking after an unplanned layoff. Normally, my preference involves riding a couple balloon- tire bicycles that I have. Tonight, I pulled out an old Raleigh bike that I have,
because I needed to get to the auto repair shop to pick up my car from an inspection more quickly. Although she hadn’t been ridden in a long time and definitely needs some major adjustment, it was a fun sunset-ride that got me there!

It's 15 miles from the Watertower in Sunset Beach, to West Jetty Park in Newport; 30 miles round-trip.
Warner is approx. 13 miles from end of peninsula; so probably 26 miles.
Great job!
The more I ride that loop, the more I want to.

Big thanks to tripple3 for the 411 on the distance!

Next time I will have to squeeze in those extra 4 miles to make it 30.

Went for a ride last night with the red rollfast. Even sad looking Pontiacs are pretty cool looking but I would need the mullet to match. Was welcomed home by a small frog - an unusual sight in my neighborhood. Today I straightened out the chain ring added a thinner washer so the ring wouldn't hit the frame and got the blue Colson riding. It's begging for thinner tires on 28s. I'm glad i went with the higher gear 9 tooth sprocket. Got it up to 25 mph on it's first painted skiptooth run.

I usually rotate my old Schwinns when I ride them in the early Florida morning before Mother Nature cranks up the heater. I just mounted new Continental 27” tires on my 1980 Suburban. I usually do 11 miles and during cooler days will do 17 miles 4-5 days a week. Here I took my water break on the Cross Seminole bike trail before heading back home. It took me 63 minutes to ride the 11 miles, break included. Not bad for an old fart of 63.View attachment 1061058

That is one clean Suburban. That color is sweet.
I don't know about you but, I love the FFS on my 79 Suburban .

Finally back on the bike. Spent a few days down in North Carolina helping my daughter and her husband move into their new house. I took the '79 out and rode the TNT with Wade.

We rode and talked about what we were doing 18 years ago . DC was a chaotic mess the hours after the attacks.

I spoke with one of the Amish folks at the market in regards to the attacks. Having no TV, radio. or computer, he said he didnt heard about it til days later.

I had to return a book to the library. They had this Godzilla monster display. Pretty neat.

Hey nice Suburban . I like that blue shade.

I will never forget when those savages struck. I was southbound on US 1 near SW 300 st in Deep South Dade County in my unmarked police car when the wife called me on the cell phone and told me about it. I remember pulling into a Daycare and rushing to their office where they had a tv and was off. I yelled at the lady to turn on the tv to the news and bam there was the report. We both stood there speechless with a blank look in our faces. That is one day I will never forget!

This reminded me of a song. This and another of your sunset colors post. Beautiful
A far cry from Both Sides now by Joni Mitchell but still cool. ;) Arizona sure has some pretty sunsets. @Miq captures them frequently and happily shares them with us. Here is North Mountain Park near my old casa in Phoenix AZ. and Turnagain arm just South of my early stoming grounds in Anchorage (Kinda reminded me of the picture on the youtube video.

I am fortunate enough to be able to ride to work every day unless the weather is bad, which is usually about a four month stretch around the holidays here. Harhar. Caught some storm clouds brewing today with my Burl Ives edition 53 Schwinn Varsity.

Late start on the Shelby Flyer. 40mi. 2hr 40min. 15ave. Nice riding conditions today up and down the coast. I don't always ride this bike, but when I do I have to get compact, enter the cockpit and hang on. I think you can adapt to most any bikes' numbers. This one likes a fast pace and is much different than my other bikes. Kinda like a hot potato. In order below.
