“Cyclist’s Favourite Treats, And Where To Find Them In Lednar’s Town”

OK, I shamelessly copied and pasted Greg’s last post title with a few alterations but doing something as easy as you can appeals to me. I rode my bike up to Kalamunda’s Sunday Growers Market yesterday hoping to get some fresh Blue Mana Crabbs but they’re not in season so I ended up going into … Continue reading "“Cyclist’s Favourite Treats, And Where To Find Them In Lednar’s Town”"

You Just Never Know Who You Might Run Into

Friday was scheduled to be my last day at my son’s house, so I decided before I left to take one more ride on the local rail trail before heading home. Just north of Millerton, NY, I see a couple of touring cyclists approaching me, riding some sort of interesting looking small-wheeled bikes. They look … Continue reading "You Just Never Know Who You Might Run Into"

Southwest

Looking for new territory to explore today, I remembered a recent article in the newspaper about a huge mural being painted on a building on the southwest side of town where I seldom ride. Based on that, I decided to pedal in that direction…. Read more at Bill Bikes

Tolay

Today the weather forecast called for excellent conditions. And I had some free time, if I promised to return early enough to take part in a post-vaccination social engagement to which ace support crew and I were committed. I promise! I promise! Read more at Bill Bikes

Horseshoe Meadow, part 2

After shuttling to the top of Horseshoe Meadow Road at approximately 10,000 feet in elevation, I conducted a steep blitzkrieg down the mountainside to Lone Pine, roughly 6000 feet below. Given my speed, rough pavement, hairpin turns, and lack of guardrails, the road demanded my full attention. Fortunately, from top to bottom I encountered less … Continue reading "Horseshoe Meadow, part 2"

Gorillapod mini tripod. Two allen wrenches (for emergency adjustment of brakes). Kleenex. Bicycle “business cards.” Need to add sunscreen. Hey! What happened to the US$1,000,000 in … Continue reading "Trunk Bag"

New Bike Path

A few days ago I saw a headline in the local newspaper: “New Bike Path Connects Forestville to Santa Rosa.” What!?! How could that be? I pay attention to that kind of stuff, and I was completely unfamiliar with any plans for, or work on, such a bike path. Read more at Bill Bikes

Dodging raindrops, fights, and traffic

The big “atmospheric river” of rain clobbered much of California a couple of days ago. Santa Rosa withstood high winds and a few inches of precipitation, but nothing like the deluge farther south which washed out Highway 1 along the Big Sur coast. And, despite the rainstorms, we remain far, far behind our normal rainfall … Continue reading "Dodging raindrops, fights, and traffic"

A clump of cacti / a heap of hedgehogs

I thought I was done with this month’s collection challenge, but this cute little clump of hedgehog cacti was just too adorable to not share.  Sorry, no bicycles, but they’re not allowed on the trails of Saguaro National Park.  And besides, it seemed like this site was getting overburdened by a blizzard of snow posts … Continue reading "A clump of cacti / a heap of hedgehogs"
