Took a nice ride yesterday up to Pike National Forest about ten miles each way great ride. The Forest is still closed to camping or motor vehicles for a few more days so got in a good 10 miles on nice dirt road by myself which is nice. In a few days when the road opens up there will likely be a tone of 4 wheelers and Motocross riders so I likely won't ride it again this season.

Up early this morning for a long ride. Took the catch-trail from my neighborhood onto the Snoqualmie Valley Trail and spent the day riding an Out n Back over to Cle Elum on the other side of Snoqualmie Pass. 112 miles all gravel, no cars and very few people. Gonna sleep well tonight.

I went out for a night ride this evening on my newly rebuilt Performance Superbe. Between all the bars being closed down and people generally having no place to go, it made for a pretty pleasant Friday night. I followed my typical commute route, which I haven't ridden since the first week in March.


This is one of the most unnecessary "road closed" signs you'll ever see.




One ride with new white bar tape -- maybe I need to wash my gloves once in a while.

It's my birthday today, so I treated myself to a pre-breakfast ride over the Mendips.

Out through Banwell, Sandford, and Churchill, then up Burrington Combe, before turning off and continuing climbing through Charterhouse, and on to Tynings, just below Beacon Batch, the highest point of the Mendip Hills. Amazing views from here in the clear morning, over the Bristol Channel as far as Wales.

After that it was over a mile of descending into Shipham, then Sidcot, Loxton, and back home through Bleadon in time for a full English breakfast.

After many weeks of isolation, Mrs non-fixie and I took a couple of bikes to the other side of the country for a weekend of riding in Twente.

You've been putting in some great mileage Matt! Looks like a stunning ride. Thanks for all the ride reports and photos.

Do you like the Deda handlebar tape? I will eventually need to redo the tape on my bike and was curious which tapes are good to use in terms of comfort and quality.

Indeed, but PRO Components white bar tape isn't. I had it on the shelf. I'll eventually install Fizik, which actually stays white.

Bar tape is so subjective, kinda have to try a few and see what you like. This is Deda's "logo" tape and I like it pretty well. It has almost a fabric feel to it. I chose it to brand match other components.

That's a huge handlebar bag! Bigger than mine and it sits nicely on your front rack.

Yes it is! Honestly it's a bit bigger than I would like but sometimes the space comes in handy. Like I have a insulated lunchbox that fits exactly inside it to keep things cool!

And yes, it fits pretty well on there. The silver screw that attaches the headlight goes through a boss at the very front of the rack. Very helpful for something this deep!

It's an older version of the Swift Ozette in the largest size.
