Old(est)/New(est)

Oldest bicycle in the fleet is a 1973 Huffy Express — single speed converted to 3 speed with a 1956 Sturmey Archer hub

Newest bicycle in the fleet is a 1994 Diamond Back Crossover  — purchased after someone (whose mother probably resides under a front porch) stole my Schwinn Traveler

Off Topic:   Beware of slimy goo on driveways  — rode down the block to retrieve the blue garbage tote for a lady and crashed when front wheel slipped as I turned in

That white pipe is a sump pump outlet — its been rainy here for so long a thick film of algae or ? has developed — slick!!

No damage to bike or me

Tote successfully retrieved!  🙂

Very much enjoy all the entries you all have provided -- great to see the everyday cycling venues. Being in eastern Illinois, scenery certainly isn't our forte, but oh well, the roads are normally quiet. Look forward to more and more entries from all of you, I do have a few over on BL -- in Bill's Day Rides, and one journal.

    Pitfalls where you never expect them, and there you were, doing a good deed. I’m glad you had no serious injury.

    “someone’s mother who resides under a front porch”?? I think there’s something I don’t get here.

    Sorry for your tumble Rich. I will assume that no damage was done — to you or to your bike. Also sorry for the thievery.

    Well, I’m impressed! I can’t believe that your newest bicycle dates to 1994. Very commendable!
