Not that kind of Can-Can This kind of can (can) After a winter of collecting cans of all sorts, the ditches here are resplendent with various examples. Wisconsin may have been out drinking us since 1848 but it looks like we are running a close second. HERE is a look at what Mixtie found … Continue reading "Mixtie Does the Can-Can"
While other areas received Snow and Ice, we stayed in the ‘warm sector’ and got lots of rain. Lots of rain Fortunate for us — not so much so for the ice storm areas in N Illinois, Wisconsin and Michigan, or the inundation of snow in Minnesota Centurian about to set off to investigate … Continue reading "Winter Storm Olive — You were Bad"
A few photos from yesterdays journey. River Thame near Stadhampton. Ford at Ewelme. Cress beds at Ewelme. St. Botophs’ Church, Swyncombe. Church yard, Syncombe. Beech woods near Stoke Row. Maharajah’s Well, Stoke Row. Another great day out on the bike.
Cold start to the day, though nice and sunny with light winds. Pollarded willow tree by the village pond and Sunningwell Art School. These are becoming quite common in rural villages, making good use of old phone boxes. Back to Steventon checking out the progress to the replacement roof, the stonework was being repointed on … Continue reading "Another Morning Ride"
Bright sunny crisp day, too cold (for me) to go far today so just a gentle trundle. This ancient bridge spans Swift Ditch close to its confluence with the Thames. Swift Ditch is a back water of the main stream and cut the long corner of the river as it flows through Abingdon. The land … Continue reading "Bridges and a Smiley Face"
Its now 5 years since my father in law, Doug, passed away. Every year since our youngest son Neale and myself have done a ride in Doug’s memory. We try to cover together in kilometres the number of years he lived (86). We meet at a mutually convenient place around 6 miles from where each … Continue reading "5th Annual D K Drew Memorial Ride"
Managed to get a couple times today between bouts of rain, it’s a reoccurring theme to my and others rides in recent postings. The Three Amigos in Steventon, I had to return and capture all three. Not so placid today. This and the following shots are from this afternoons trundle, checking out the flood waters … Continue reading "Between the Showers"
I failed dismally this to find the restored section of the Wilts and Berks Canal located in the village Grove. Its not that big a place but I couldn’t locate it. Found my way to the village green in West Hanney for a quick bite. This innocuous looking bridge is called Gallows Bridge on my … Continue reading "A Failure and a Gruesome Location"
Today was a case of rain, then sun then torrential rain. These snowdrops are the first of the year for me, taken while the sun was briefly out. This unusual house could be yours for snip at a guide price of £325,000 ($393,000 or 368,550 Euros), it has been on the markets for months, can’t … Continue reading "Flowers and a House"
As I have exhausted the local supply of waterfalls, with last weeks offering, I chose the following as today entry. This set of weir gates is only opened during periods of high water levels as we are experiencing just now. The building in the background with the chimneys is the Lock Keepers house. Looks as … Continue reading "Waterfalling Wednesday"
Had to run an errand into Abingdon this morning, delivering a chocolate cake to my mother in law. As the sun was shining brightly I would take the longer less direct route there. Recently flooded fields off of Peep O’Day Lane, this is a walking / cycling route to the edge of Abingdon. This is … Continue reading "A Little Unexpected"
Well, if even Lednar is going to post a last day of the year ride, I guess I’d better too. First though, I’d like to offer my apology for backing out of active involvement in the community. Somewhere along the middle of our nine month tour of Europe I realized that maintaining that journal every day … Continue reading "Happy New Year from Tucson!"
Hi Cycle 365ers, I’m still alive and cycling like crazy. It’s now Sunday morning, the first day of 2023 and it seems very much like last year so far. Last night my club went for a night cycle with a picnic in Kings Park then a ride around the Christmas lights in the city. It … Continue reading "My last ride of 2022"
Despite the heavy rain this morning I had to go out to keep the streak going. The owner of this property just outside the village dammed this stream up to create the pond in the photo below. The pond covers quite an area. This is the outlet from the pond, yet another unnamed stream. Though … Continue reading "Damp Ride to Finish the Year."
Having to run an errand into the neighbouring village of Steventon, I took the opportunity of taking a few quick photo’s. Steventon Parish church, I think it has a lead roof. Not really sure I would want these in my front garden, fibre glass I think. This house is opposite the church. This is again … Continue reading "Quick Morning Spin"
Managed to get for a couple of hours this morning, bright and sunny though chilly. This is the main river stream with the Culham Lock cutting on the other side of the willows. Looking upstream from the same point, due to the recent heavy rains the river is running high and fast. From here is … Continue reading "Morning Ride"
Just a few photo’s from yesterday’s ride, forgot to take the camera this morning. This is Drayton 1066, as it is meant to be seen. Can’t get far enough away to get the whole expanse in. This is Appleford Gravel Pits, another local bird watching haven. The ride to be a very quick 12 miler … Continue reading "Watery Ride"
Wednesday is usually my cycling day of the week, so having missed out last week on a decent ride due to the weather I was more than happy to get out today. I found this cloud formation interesting, until a few minutes later it dumped its load on me, I had to scuttle away to … Continue reading "An Unusual Waterway"
Today would have to be just a short trip out due to the heavy rains forecast for later this morning. This rain would be a challenge as it would fall on already frozen ground. This is the pond in the hamlet of Sutton Wick, love the remaining branches on the willow. This is from the … Continue reading "Before The Rains Arrive"
This is The Duchess, she belongs to my wife who no longer rides. Having made a few changes to her, raising the saddle, changing the pedals and fitting lights etc, I now ride her for shopping, and like this morning, trips to our allotments (Lottie). Soon after moving to Drayton 2 1/2 years ago we … Continue reading "A Bicycle for Daily Use"
It was -1C when I set out at 9:15, initially to deliver a few Christmas cards in Abingdon. White grass on the far bank of the Thames. Whilst sorting out the remaining cards to deliver the Black Headed Gulls (winter plumage) and feral pigeons thought I may have a little something for them, sadly I … Continue reading "Two River Ride"
It was degrees 3C when I left home around 10, headed to Abingdon to see what repairs if any have been carried out on the bridge. This is what I found in Thames Street, it appears that there are a number of scaffold tubes driven into the river bed. The pontoon / floaty thing is … Continue reading "Another Morning Spin"
In the spirit of posting a photo that highlights a daily ride, I offer the picture above. Like many of you, the weather here in Vermont has not been very conducive to lots of riding. It’s frequently been chilly, windy and rainy, although not any snow that has accumulated as yet. Today is looking to … Continue reading "Thanksgiving Survivors"
Yesterday’s plan to visit the windmill at Brill was thwarted by thick fog. Though I did ride for a couple hours I went without a camera. Still foggy this morning (it would never clear) I had to deliver advent calendars to our two eldest granddaughters, who live in Abingdon. Not a very pleasant prospect as … Continue reading "Murky Morning Ride"
After heavy overnight rain I managed to get out for a couple of hours. First stop was by the Thames at Abingdon. From here it was onto Sunningwell where the lovely weeping willow caught my eye. As it just happened to be next to the village pond was a bonus. From Sunningwell it was out … Continue reading "Morning Spin"
I’ve been thinking for quite a while now that I would like to investigate the river systems within my home county of Oxfordshire (Oxon for short). Having set out this morning with that in mind I first travelled to Abingdon. This is Abingdon Bridge, original construction completed in 1422, widened a number of times over … Continue reading "A New Quest"
Couldn’t ask for a more beautiful morning for a nice long bicycle ride. Cool temps, almost chilly to start, and low humidity, and blue skies Met up with Dave and Dwight and after our usual amount of indecision, probably the poorest leader of all was selected to lead the way. South we went, seems like … Continue reading "To The Country Club and Back"
A medical appointment for CEO left some time for another venture to Kickapoo and the Rail Trail Positioning the start to avoid any steep climbs proved a good idea, albeit, shortening the distance A parking area exists between ravines and is not far from the entrance to the Vermilion County Fairgrounds and access to the … Continue reading "Le Tour Goes to Oakwood, IL"
Back to Kickapoo, this time to ride the entire route around the park Turns out its only 4 miles, (from where I started) but, lots of scenery and some fairly steep (read very steep) slopes to ascend/descend Being from the north of the county, steep slopes are not something to be dealt with to any … Continue reading "Kickapoo Part 4"
I’m going to try to sneak in one last Great Outdoors post. Hopefully the Czars will allow it, since these photos are actually from a ride I did on June 29th and 30th. I decided earlier this week that I needed a little bit of a getaway road trip, so I headed on over to … Continue reading "Erie Canal – One Last Great Outdoors Post"
CEO had an appointment in that building that normally lasts 2 hours or so Choice: Sit in the parking lot and roast — or — head to Kickapoo and ride 🙂 (Appt came out A-ok) Trail 1b the “easy” beginners trail . . . .

No, the surprise isn’t that I’m finally getting around to contributing something here again, though that’s surprising enough. Here we’ve been in England over a week now and I haven’t posted anything about it. And I haven’t even expressed my thanks to Greg for curating the challenge for the last year, or for Rich for … Continue reading "A Summer Solstice Surprise"
Intrigued by looking at the mountain biking maps on KMBC I just had to give it one more go Knowing for a fact the only trails I would be (maybe) capable of would be 1B and 1A 1B had been ridden before, at least part of it had, since I missed a critical turn at … Continue reading "Kickapoo Part 2"

This is admittedly not a very attractive photo, but February isn’t exactly the most attractive month around here. And after my poor showing in last month’s challenge, it’s time to get back in the game. So in the photo above, you will see a Parking Lot, containing Motor vehicles, and also a Puddle on the … Continue reading "It’s February — Time To Get Back In The Game"
For some reason I thought the chimney challenge would be a snap, imagining that Tucson would be crammed with colorful and interesting chimneys. I’d never actually looked around with that in mind though, and once I did I was in for a deep disappointment. Nearly every home here has some short, blah stub that barely … Continue reading "Chimney, chairs, & cheer"
Actually, those aren’t cholla – they’re some variety of prickly pear – but I like cholla because it starts with ch-, one of the magic digraphs for the month. Also I like it because it allows me to raise an important point, with apologies if it’s already been raised before but I haven’t been reading … Continue reading ""
Are uncannily and triplicated even real words? We’ll see what the reigning Challenge Czar has to say about it. More importantly, have I lost track and used STU already in an Alphabet Quest submission? I hope not, because I think you’ll like this photo of a black stilt, his reflection and his shadow that I … Continue reading "Uncannily Triplicated Stilt"
It’s serendipitous when the dictates of the reigning Challenge Czar coincidentally coincide with my own interests of the moment; such as today, when I’m happy to see that my latest Alphabet Quest entry begins with Q, the hot letter de jour. I’ve had this sequence in mind for awhile, and finally found what I was … Continue reading "Quaint Religious Structure"
I love setting my own rules for how to interpret the alphabet game. My primary self-imposed rule is to describe a photo with three words beginning with consecutive letters of the alphabet. But I’m quite certain that I didn’t stipulate that the three words needed to be in any order. It’s a good thing, too. … Continue reading "Keen Javalina Lineup!"
Such a mortification. My latest solution to the Alphabet Quest felt like a stretch – Sleek Transport Vessel, for the ferry back from Coronado after circling San Diego Bay? I wasn’t that sold on ‘sleek’ for this ferry, but nothing better came to mind. If I hadn’t been focused so much on that, I wouldn’t … Continue reading "Scooter Trips Up!"
(A note from the management: the site isn’t going away, and if it seems to work properly as long as you use the https// access, Tuere’s no imminent need to change anything. We just want to step back from responsibility for repairing what’s broken). We’re in hog heaven, biking up Hog Canyon on one of … Continue reading "Failed Grape Harvest?"
No bicycling here, but I’ve been assured that hikes are now welcomed so this should qualify. We stopped off at Point Lobos on the drive from Petaluma to San Luis Obispo, making our way to Tucson in five easy pieces. Point Lobos is a beautiful place for a walk, with plenty of interest no matter … Continue reading "Neatly Ordered Pelicans"
Today is our last day in Portland for awhile – we’re moving south in the morning – and I was hopeful that I could bet one more challenge entry in before we leave town. I set off in the cold to Kelly Point, confident that I’d find the fencepost I’d imagined would be there. As … Continue reading "Deeply Etched Fencepost"
Portland definitely is struggling through some negatives lately, but if you admire trees it’s still a fine place to hang out. For some reason the great, majestic elm in Overlook Park has become my favorite tree in town. Why this specific tree? No obvious reason I suppose, other than the fact that it stands so … Continue reading "Completely Defoliated Elm"
I have to give the creative Mr. Garceau a lot of credit and respect. Month after month he’s coming up with new ideas that keep us motivated and moving. Doesn’t Ever Fail! Really Strange Though. Absolutely Bonkers Character, I think sometimes. He has one Great Honkin’ Imagination, that’s for sure. So I don’t know if this … Continue reading "Ball-Chasing Dogs"
I can see that this is going to be an addictive challenge. I’m finding myself biking along with a series of letters running through my head trying to think up a plausible combination I might actually see. ABC is easy enough though, as I quickly discovered on my Metric Birthday Ride. We’ll see how hard … Continue reading "Assertive Black Chicken"
I know, I know. I’m a fair weather cyclist, and quite happily so. At 75 (or nearly anyway), I feel entitled to pick my days. We’ve already got one Storm Chaser on the website after all, and who needs another? So, pretty uninteresting weather to report here, but it makes up for it by being … Continue reading "Sauvie Sunday, again"
I headed out first thing today for an early Thanksgiving morning ride down to the river. It was a chilly 22F/-6C as I headed out the door. This area is called Retreat Meadows, which I’ve featured before in winter, populated with ice shanties. No shanties yet, but there was a thin film of ice on … Continue reading "Thanksgiving Morning Ramble"
For us there have been many wonderful benefits from selling our home and going vagabond almost four years ago. One negative though is that there are some excellent rides near home that we used to enjoy often and in all seasons but now may experience only once or twice a year. Sauvie Island is like … Continue reading "Foggy Sauvie Sunday"
After a few days of dense jet-lag induced fog, I’m happy to report that more interesting weather has finally returned. There’ll plenty of more interesting weather ahead in the coming days back here in Portland, but we got a break from the rain today wide enough for a cruise out Marine Drive.
Today was supposed to be the Vaya’s turn for a ride but as you can see, it’s huddled inside sadly looking out the garage door. You might possibly remember a photo that Rich posted yesterday that looked remarkably similar to the one above. That’s because Rich was nice enough to send his weather our way. … Continue reading "And The Rain Headed East"
I woke up Sunday morning feeling extra refreshed from that bonus hour of sleep, so decided it would be a great day for an early morning ride. It was a beautiful clear, sunny morning but cold, with the temperature around 29F/-2C. I decided the best plan was a mostly gravel road ride up on the … Continue reading "Sunday Morning Ride"
The day surprises us when we wake up in Rome this morning. Weather again! The streak continues! Even better, the weather is fair. We’d come to the Eternal City as the best place to sit out an expected string of rainy days, but instead there’s all of this sun streaming in our window. Monuments and … Continue reading "The streak continues"
Well, this is good news! When we open up Weather.com today it shows that there will be weather on a daily basis for the next two weeks! It’s too soon to say what will occur beyond that, but if things go well we can expect weather for the rest of the month. So, odds are … Continue reading ""
OK,Greg. Now I feel really bad. Here’s one last post for the October challenge, to help bring the team up to quota. PLEASE DON’t GO! Today’s post is from a ride from two weeks ago, our ride to Acqui Terme, an interesting hot spring spa in the Italian Piedmont region. The decorated bike shot is … Continue reading "Guide bikes"
So, good so far. Our challengemaster is grudgingly cool with posts about someone else’s bike, and with toon bikes. How about implied bikes? This submission of a brown marmorated stink bug that hopped on the back of my bike during our lunch break on our ride to Bassano del Grappa surely will be greeted with … Continue reading "An implied bike?"
So let’s test this slippery slope a bit further and see how far we can slide. A decorated bike but not your own squeaked past the judge’s table without getting the hook. How about toon bikes? You’d think this particular judge would look approvingly on this, but one never knows. Who knows why these fish … Continue reading "Fish on bikes!"
Thanks to Suzanne for slapping me beside the head and pointing out that I could post submissions for this month without decorating my own bike, something that’s not quite in my comfort zone for some reason.

Weather was beautiful, bright sun, cool temperatures, light and variable winds Doesn’t happen often in Illinois but occasionally it does and this morning and a few preceding mornings it did. Take advantage when it happens. Next decision was: Where to go? Decided to head down 7th street to CR 4000N and make the decision then. … Continue reading "Perfect Morning for a Ride"
So what’s the most uplifting thing we saw today? So much to choose from: cows, a pigeon, sheep, a lovely young lady on her bike taking her pony for a walk?

Happiness is getting out for a ride in the morning while the sun is still low in the sky and the air is fresh. By the way it is the 14th beautiful sunny day in a row (if I count the day when the sun didn’t come out until 4 p.m. and Scott says that’s … Continue reading "Happiness is … (14)"

I’m sure you all remember a few months ago, we had the face challenge. I really enjoyed all the faces that people found, but I never really got into a groove finding my own. I just couldn’t seem to see those faces when I was out and about riding. So today, I was very happy … Continue reading "Better Late Than Never"
By now you know that at long last we met up with Suzanne and Janos yesterday and again today.

We have our excuses though: the WiFi in … Continue reading "Some old news"
Happiness is when you see those two vagabond cyclists appear on the horizon. I was very excited (and didn’t get the best pictures) when we finally saw Rachael and Scott riding down the road.

Two storks in the field, naturally. We know they’re around the region in the summer but had about concluded they’d all flown south for the winter when we found these two on the way to Dinkelsbuhl. The highlight of the day.
A rogue shower had just passed thru town, and after the sprinkles stopped, a short ride down 7th street sounded like a good idea That’s the shower down there, but not going that far right now, so all is good 🙂 On the way south on 7th I noticed an interesting plant/weed and made a … Continue reading "Ride Down 7th Street"

We did … Continue reading "Leaving Bacharach"
No no, not that kind of streaking. This isn’t the 1970’s after all. I’m talking about the consecutive days of riding kind of streak.

We’ve heard from the best authorities that wallabies make a great snack, so we were excited to spot one on our ride to Hasselt. Unfortunately it was safe behind a chain link fence, and we couldn’t find any on the menu when we cruised the restaurants for dinner. We’ll keep watching though.
We’re staying in Belgium for the first few days of our tour, but it’s close enough to the border that we were able to bike to Hulst in the Netherlands on a day ride. I’d wondered how we’d find food in the Netherlands, but an Italian pannenkoek (pancake) for lunch was quite nice. There’s a … Continue reading "Pannenkoek: our Dutch word of the day"
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.

They look … Continue reading "You Just Never Know Who You Might Run Into"

I’ve been following lots of bike journals the last month or so, and it’s been exciting to finally see people getting out and about.

Raleigh at CSX Railroad Nice morning for a ride, so the Raleigh and I headed south for 3 miles, then west to the RR.

I did not find as many things as I wanted in last month’s scavenger hunt challenges. Among other thingsI knew that I’d never find a reel mower because (1) what the heck is a reel mower?

To make up for the squid, next up is something I think you’ll find is fun. Most of us have heard about or even used Little Free Libraries where you can take or leave a book to share.

While it’s true that we live by the sea, it doesn’t often smell that way. But for a couple of days recently there was a distinct fishy smell wafting – well not exactly wafting, more like blasting – our way. So I set out to discover the source of this smell. The nearby commercial fishing … Continue reading "Something Fishy"

Just so you don’t get the wrong idea, sunny days are rare in my neck of the woods this time of year. We call it Gray May and June Gloom.
