    Default VSalon Ride Reports: Sept 13-19 2021 - Climbing Weather!

    Tried some new routes around Austerlitz with a pal. Dodged a gate for a great ridge line gravel road and descent. New term - Hillsdale downhill. Means the road does go downhill, but you still have to climb. Now orange sunset and toasted legs.

    Monday was a roundtrip from White Plains to somewhere north of Yorktown.



    Tuesday was just 3 hours in the city through 4 boros so no climbing unless one counts 5 of the 6 bridges I went over.



    Today was from White Plains up to the @SlowPokePete haunts of the past with a lap of the Croton reservoir (and once again over a bridge from Monday) and back to White Plains.





    Thinking that tomorrow oughta be a rest day. And Friday will be one of the other bikes.

    The cat is obviously not interested in the pigeons that have taken over his or her small front yard.
    I'm pretty certain that the neighbors of this apartment are not happy with the feeder of the new flock.
    I leaned my bike against the recycle and garbage bins across the street, they were painted with pigeon pooh.

    It's nice to see contrails in the sky since that means more planes flying to Heathrow.

    For those of you doubled vaxxed in the States, currently you only need a pre-flight PCR and day 2 PCR in the UK with no quarantine to visit.
    Later today, Boris is supposed to get rid of the PCR requirement for double jabbed to visit.

    Flights are super cheap and only about 25% full... It's a great time to come ride in the UK. End Public Service Announcement.

    And as an added bonus, ITV is showing the newest season of Endeavour on Sunday night. You can see it before it shows on PBS later this fall.

    Nice pic Doug. We snuck in an Ireland trip to see the in-laws in June, right before things got worse again. If our kids were vaxxed we’d probably try and see some UK relatives, but as it stands now, the grandparents are coming here for Christmas.

    All three kids have gotten their GB passports this summer. Working on Irish next. You can never have too many options in this crazy world.

    My wife and I went to Chagrin Falls, Ohio on house hunting trip.

    I brought my bike and had a few nice rides among the trees and hills. One young maple decided to turn red a bit early.

    Last weekend of summer and the children are still learning to sail in Richmond. I always think of the 'Swallows and Amazons' books when I see this.

    45 miles with my wife in the northern Shenandoah Valley of Virginia and partly in West-Virginia. The pictures were taken around Summit Point, WV.

    A couple more rides before the Rapha Mt. Riga Gentleman’s ride. Not as fit as years prior, but it’ll be fun.

    Gorgeous morning for a ride and for clearing out the time zone cobwebs.

    Hilarious. I thought you were kidding but there really is a Rapha ride to Mt. Riga. Do you go up the dirt road and north towards Mt. Everett or south and down?

    The ride starts in Amenia and goes up Lambert Road, down Macadonia, up N. Kent #1 , up Riga, down Falls Rd, up Carson.

    Something like that. ;)

    The interesting thing is as a group of 4, you are willing to pay $145 to do a ride you regularly do for free. That is the power of marketing. I hope you at least get a Jersey in the goodie bag.
