    Default Velocipede Salon Member Ride Reports Sept. 9-15 Fall is coming at us

    Been spending a lot of time on the trail and in the woods. Great time of year for it after weather kept us off for much of the summer.
    Unfiltered and uncropped from the cellphone.


    Texture




    Shape




    Fabulous fungi finds













    Recently reworked downfall




    Must be a story with this one. One messed up motor scooter.

    PEEEETE! Where did you find those puppies? I keep checking the trees on my routes as I know that gravity will eventually be sending them my way.

    Rode my road bike on an unpaved trail this afternoon. Hopefully I didn't void the warranty.

    Illinois Prairie Path just west of Bartlett. I think riding like this is like being a kid again.

    So I had to google this. RW, I couldn’t find anything good about them. Do you have a secret recipe?

    Mike...the Orange Osage is the scourge of cyclists in my neighborhood. Those buggers (monkey ball is the botanical term) typically fall from the tree and strategically position themselves just on the left side of the white line...supposedly on the right side in the UK, Australia and Japan...photo from today's ride attached for reference.

    Early morning ride in the humidity and the roads were full of acorns, walnuts and the aforementioned monkey balls. Had to to go early as we had a 94th birthday party for my dear Mother-in-Law. If I make it that long, I sure hope that I'm in her shape with her attitude.

    A US friend was in London this week for work. Friday AM he had business meeting in Brussels and we decided he'd bring his kit and we'd try to squeeze a ride in in the afternoon.
    He fit my bikes so I gave him the Pegoretti, took the fenders off the Jaegher and took him on a surprise loop that included cobbles, the Congoberg (x2), Kappelmuur and Bosberg.

    The weather was late summer perfect.

    In Tyrol everything is turning to orange and red. There has been snow down to about 1800m so we tend to do the middle routes, mixed terrain, lots of fruit in the garden, thoughts slowly turning to skiing.

    You're not thinking like a survivalist. The shrubs make the best arrows. After the zombie apocalypse, you need to know where to source arrows for your bow.

    Spent most to the weekend working on our property, but it was a beeyootiful day once I got out.

    Another nice day by Jorn Ake, on Flickr

    The town is paving my favorite gravel road (except for the part that goes through Mrs. Hansen's farm - she's tough as nails) that contains some of the steeper climbs in the area. The climbs will still be hard but there won't be the backsliding slippage on the steep parts there was with gravel. I went to see if I could take another crack at acing the steepest and longest one before the pavement went down, but they'd already slathered it with sticky tar and rock chips.

    As a scooterist, I ... know people who do stuff like that. They're the reason why I ride alone.
