    Default Velocipede Salon Member Ride Reports November 7 - November 14

    Out this unseasonably warm morning in a few of our local secret spots. Exploiting the local offroad opportunities in tribute to joostx.

    Squeezed in a little ride at lunchtime. We have been having beautiful weather and it is nice to see all the green.

    Parts-bin SSCX, still working out the gear-ratio but I know 38x19 is too low for commutes. The ride home was very cold!

    It gets cold when it gets dark and now it gets dark even sooner.

    Kicked off the week with an easy 62 miles in perfect weather on a perfect bike.

    I really want to ride with this Turkish guy. Looks amazing and you know we'll gain weight after.

    There was a small medical emergency at the polling station. It was being resolved, a young man had a seizure and people were helping. I offered what little help I could and when I walked away a 90'ish year old woman asked me if he came to vote and would he be able to vote. Apparently she had a sharp sense of justice and wanted me to inquire if he would be able to vote...so I did. There was a poll observer in attendance who had dispatched for a family member who would see to the man and that his vote was counted. Old folks, listen to them always.

    It is my tradition to ride my bike to vote and so it goes. Me and my Zank knocking it out of the park.

    (I love Matt's doodles.)

    On Monday, I got out for 15 hilly miles stuffed into 65 minutes I had available. No photos, as this was a well worn and photographed/posted ride.

    As I had previously done that absentee thing, I am able to spend the week in Canada.

    I forgot how much I love the Parlee.

    I forgot how much faster I am on it than the rest of the stable...although it feels slower for some reason. Maybe it is because riding in exurbia is less of a barrage of sensory overload.

    I forgot how quiet riding the Parlee here is compared to the others in the city....not talking about bike sounds....just so incredibly quiet here or is it that NYC is so incredibly noisy even when it is not?

    I forgot how wonderful it is to have traffic move completely over into the next lane while you ride on the 6 foot wide shoulder and how they will even stop on what amounts to the highway if they can't get over.

    I never thought I could be overdressed in Canada on November 8.

    Two hours in a remarkably beautiful 13 C day.

    Off from work on election day, so it was time to take advantage of the gorgeous fall weather and get in a nice 100 km.....The right shifter on my Colnago was starting to miss shifts, so that normally means time for a rebuild. For Campagnolo 10 speed, that usually means about $15 worth of parts and an hour or so-once you have done a few. So I took care of this one over the weekend and today was a great chance to see if everything was put right. It now has the accuracy of a sharpshooter at 100 yds....

    It's absolutely figgin' BEAUTIFUL out today -- 63 plus, sunny, no wind. Like we turned our clocks back to September. Had the groad bike loaded up in the car with the SS monster, all ready to do a road ride at lunch (like most days, my only opportunity to ride today). While off-loading the colon pre-ride, I realized I didn't bring spare tubes... So another MTB ride. Still pleasant, and I made some more trail progress, but sometimes you just want to cover some ground, ya know? Almost feel like I wasted the day. Almost.

    Holy smokes what a day! 21°C at 51 degrees north in November! Meteo types are saying it's hot air coming north from south of the 49th parallel. What y'all got going on down there today that would generate that much hot air?! ;-)

    Vote and be safe.

    After a few months off the bike, I turned pedals as hard as I could this afternoon (after a jaunt on Prospect Park trails and a stop at Maglia Rosa for an espresso). It. Felt. So. Good. Currently pondering dessert...

    Took my brother out to show him some dirt trails on his 29er. Good times! He is hooked!

    Today especially for the Salonistas from the US; some ride pictures from the country of your new first lady. Also here the sun did rise again. And remained for the whole day.
