Wore out three sets of tires already!

I am fortunate to live in an area with LOTS of cyclists. And lots of bike related events. Longmont Bike Night has just finished it's 16th year!!! Have been lucky to make it to every ride the last 3 years(including Moonlight Rides which we didn't do this year:(). And rode a different bike each week the last 2 years. Bicycle Longmont is the area bike advocate and does a good job in the community.

Tomorrow we are escorting the "Official Oktoberfest Keg" from Left Hand Brewing to Roosevelt Park where the party is. It will take a better part of the afternoon to visit all the other breweries, cideries and distillers in town on our way.:) When the parade arrives at the park, the Mayor taps the keg to kick off the party and pours all of us a beer! Can't wait!!!

P.S. That sweet little Columbia would make a great Pig Bike. Just sayin'....;)
I’ve followed the Mr. Money Moustache blog almost from the beginning, and my sister (who rides) lived in Boulder for years. So I was already a bit familiar with Longmont’s legendary bike culture. Looking forward to seeing pics of the monthly rides :)

You just blew my mind with the Pig Bike suggestion (had to look it up). I also noticed there seems to be enough BB clearance to install a full sized crank.

Coincidentally I ran into a man (while riding the Columbia) who told me about his son’s Sears Spyder still hanging in his garage. So I might be back in a muscle bike anyway. Miss the Royce I sold earlier this year.

Thanks for the compliment @tripple3! Haven't done much with the Roadmaster since I picked it up at auction in 2016. Will be getting a full overhaul this winter. ;)

24" bikes make great muscle bikes for todays adult. Especially with a longer crank! Will be watching when you get to work on your Columbia.:sunglasses:

@hm. a few of us rode the same beach bike path today, watertower to Wedge and back.
I left for Balboa from FV, and met @kevin x on the SA river-trail on his way there from HB.
We met @lounging & @cyclingday at the end of the peninsula unloading their bikes.

Then rode back on this beautiful day.

Great double-ride of OC beaches today.

I left a little later because I had no real destination; on 1940 Western Flyer, HD.
I pulled into the nursery for a pic of his 1946 Chevy pick-up.
Then jumped out on the trail headed for the beach.
I chose to ride north, to Sunset first, while it was still glassy.:cool:

Turn and ride south, to the end of Newport, Wedge.
I remembered to look for trash; but was too late.
I picked up a napkin; the area was Clean!
The Wedge is loved by many.

I headed north again and met some young riders, Joey and Jeffrey, riding bikes, enjoying the Ride!

I ended up back at the tower in Sunset, and took a break.

Back to the river-trail home for a Mint IT'S-IT.
Just over 60 miles today; great ride!

Got a call from friends in the process of moving into a newly bought house here in the neighborhood. With all the fiasco of moving several cars and everything else they locked the keys in their 67 bug. They asked if I could swing by and safley open the car. So keeping it fresh I went ahead and pulled the 70 fastback down from the hooks in the garage.

Hitting the streets 20 inch style..

Once I got to their corner stopped for a quick pic.
schwinn side 388.jpg

Another stop on their street to take a cool pic and a good look at this place.
schwinn side 389.jpg

Down hill going pretty fast and rounding the corner I see the bug in the driveway..
schwinn side 391.jpg

With a coat hangar through the top of the vent wing frame and seal I easily hooked and opened the vent wing latch.
schwinn side 392.jpg

And after a few beers as payment I rode back home.

Good but a short ride.. and thats about all I can or would want to do on this little 20 inch bike.
