    Default Velocipede Salon Member Ride Reports 8/5-8/11--Full Swing August August

    It's Tuesday and I can't believe this was quiet.

    Did about 25 through Manhattan, over to Brooklyn, over to Queens, back to Manhattan. Somehow managed to make about 75% of it away from traffic which is odd in this town.

    All I got beyond the memories...in the interest of keeping traditions alive....

    The bike had been painted red and white as an homage to my adopted nation of Canada but I realize that with the stem/bar and shoe color it is actually Egypt. Which is probably right as NYC is a wonderful mish mosh of cultures.

    I think cottonwoods are underrated trees.

    Life is busy, and uploading and posting pics are a luxury at the moment...happy to be out in the woods though



    It's STEEP.

    Tough week riding and chillin’ in the low country and now that Imgur won’t support the mobile app in terms of uploads, I’ll need to post pics when I return. Trust me, it’s hot, sunny and beautiful and the alligators are still here.

    You guys and your dirt roads are so funnnnnnyyyy!!!

    Happiness is a Look 585 Ultra and the wide open paved road. Good enough for Christoph Moreau? Good enough for me 15 years later.

    Some late afternoon shadows about 45 miles west of Chicago stopped for a water break.

    Stuck in the city so did 6 laps of Central Park.

    This pretty much sums it up...

    August is the month of second chances.



    You know I like the rough stuff, don't you, Frank?



    Some quality barn action up here in deep central Maine.



    The ATV trails open a lot of stuff up, but they're not exactly low-impact.



    Lesson plan.

    This past week was a road trip, as we made what has become our annual trek to Kiawah and we recharged the batteries with a lot of riding, boating, fishing, gator watching and just chillin'.

    Tooling around on the dirt roads of Westchester, playing the "should I or shouldn't I register for D2R2" game in my head.

    No pics on a bluebird day but things happened quickly. Saw one, perhaps two fisher cats near the top of a hill west of town. One loped across the road in front of me and I thought it hopped into the woods but I got there and one was loping up in the ditch. It looked at me and was like "what?" and it hopped into the woods, which is why I think it was two. They're one damn big weasel.

    Was headed up to the one good stretch of unimproved road in the county and a logging operation halfway in made it even better than that. Rode up it, looped around and rode down it. Mud, ruts, wet rocks. I like.

    On the way back in I met two guys on unicycles. One with his dog on a leash. For extra degree of difficulty, I guess.

    Just getting ramped up on a Monday morning, but still a smile on my face from a perfect weather/riding weekend.

    found some roads in central jersey yesterday that were just perfect. the kind of loop that makes a gravel hungry roadie weep with joy. very well groomed roads, low low traffic (none?) and good temperature. mostly tree covered shaded all day.

    i want to modify this loop a bit, and stand by - i'll post a forum ride for the fall on most of these roads. as good as this weekend was, i will bet the colors out here will explode in the fall.

    few pics below, the rest of them on my blog here:

    The rare two-bike-ride weekend.
    The saddle pack looks a little ridiculous unloaded on my bike, but I'm planning a longer ride next weekend and had some time to prep.
