Went to the "Niles Canyon Stroll and Roll" today. they closed the road and opened it to pedestrians and cyclists. I took the bike I rode there a few times a week in the summer months back in the 80's when I was young and handsome. too much traffic, not enough road for me to ride there now.
Niles Canyon is 6 miles long, but I went past it and then rode up and back twice. 32 miles. I usually ride only 10 or 15
this bridge is LOOONG when riding a bike in traffic!
I also left before sunrise, riding Velvet deLuxe.
I wore my Light bus jersey, that was given to me by artist, Bob Hieronimus, June 3rd.
All fired up, watching for connections to Light.
Obviously, more free time than most.
I was at the Wedge and remembered to look for trash to pick.
I parked my bike because there was quite a bit, being early.
I laughed out loud at the candy wrappers scattered about; favorites of mine.
It's a little bit better now.
On my roll back from the water tower, I changed directions to ride with and hang out with Peter H, and 2 of his grandsons; enjoying the ride.
Rolled back up the river trail, to CM to get my check, then back around to the other side to go home. 46 miles, laughing almost identical to the Yoder goose horn, that most folks enjoy.
Another great ride.
1942 Elgin Tiki Cruiser on the same morning light ride, home to Wedge, to Water-tower, back to HB, then home.
My Sweetie and I went to Lowes last evening; it's here again.
Merry Christmas! Peace on Earth, Light For All!
I probably said "Merry Christmas" to at least 50 folks today.
Joyous Season for me.
Like a bike for a 11 year old boy.
"I never should have gotten the Pierce Racer, because now all my other bikes feel like heavy pigs." @piercer_99 I now know what you mean. Now i will never ride a modern road bike. After getting my Colson riding higher gear my fastback now feels slow and heavy and really only suitable for a casual cruise. I fixed a flat tire on it and put the newly painted chain guard on it today and went for a ride.
