You guys have some amazing places to ride in.


I live in a very built up, industrial area. High population. Very busy traffic. Narrow roads, hilly.


When I look at the pics on here, I just drool....long highways. Wide open roads. Ocean views.


Love it!

I taught my photo class how to shoot for panoramas then stitch them together in Photoshop. ]. As a bonus I showed them how to make a "Tiny Planet" from their panos. I figured I better do one too,
so of course I included my wife and her bike.

great photo!

It's been warming up here in the midwest, but nothing growing yet. A few more weeks before that happens, but it's still nice just to go out for a ride without having to wear booties!

Here's a closer shot of the spirit mountain, captured with a buddy. Looking at the east side.


I also like this one of St Helens. So clearly shows where the lahar flowed.

Great pix!

I recently found this map of Rainier lahars at volcanoes.usgs.gov kind of sobering ...

Good to see there has been enough rain to begin to turn central CA hills green (at least for a few weeks).


Here's hoping CA gets lots of little rain events all year long.

It's still the middle of ski season up here.
5" new overnight at my favourite spot.


edit: Your pic didn't show for me, but I'm sure it's not snow.

It's ok. I just didn't go back and re-torque it after 50 miles after completely tearing the old bike down and completely redoing it. It had been hanging in my father's garage since 1982.

It was this fear that made me buy the "Cool Tool" back in the day. A great little tool for C&V bikes, but a novel feature is the 14 & 15mm crank bolt socket that can tighten up that critical bolt (or nut). A rather hefty tool, but very useful....

Wow. That's quite the implement!

I felt it starting to get wonky, and initially thought it might have been a pedal bearing. I noticed clean metal on the spindle starting to show and quickly turned toward home hoping to make it (I just shortened up an already short 10 mile ride by a couple of miles). I actually made it to the outside of my neighborhood when it came off, so it was only about a 6 block walk to the house for a repair. Could have been much worse!!
