Tuesday was my first ride all the way into Philadelphia for this season. It was a perfect day so I rode down to the South Street bridge to be sure it was still there (yup, its still there). I took this one photo but unless you've done this trip you have no idea. One photo cannot tell the story. A great ride. Left Oaks, PA around 10am, turned at trails end (near Christian St) around noon and stopped for picnic lunch on Venice Island around 12:30. A bit cool at first but warmed up into the high 70s. It was the kind of day that helps you forget about the long winter we had. 52 miles and I felt great.

Took a nice local ride about 20 miles round trip to test out my recent $3 thrift store bought Miyata Ninety. To Alma CO on the highest bike path in the world which is finally clear after being flooded or covered in snow drifts for the past couple months. Bike road great but is to short top line for me so rather than invest in fixing it up it will likely go back to the thrift store this weekend.

Had a nice Tour d' Dallas today in pleasant weather on my Trek 950.






Now I would have delivered a Big Mac for a lot less than the rates this person charges.

Took a nice spring ride to Alma and back on the back no name road first time this year this route is nearly clear of snow. Getting to really like my recently rescued specialized MTB bout $20 in parts and 5 hours labor and it is one of the best riding bikes I have owned really surprised how nice the mixed DA Suntour Accushift drive train works.

I made a 13.5 mile post office run (the long way) on my recently acquired Legnano Gran Premio. (Eroica souvenier?) The frame is a little small, but what a great riding little bike. The rear brake cable slipped, so I had lots of lever action, but no rear brake, and no 8mm wrench along, so I took it kind of easy. It's also my entry in the $100 clunker challenge, so I threw some used Gators on it, and some $10 SPD pedals. I've also got a 56cm Roma Olympiade, and this one feels lighter and more lively, somehow. Fun bike.

Lopez looks like a great ride. I did it several years ago, and don't remember any gravel sections. Is that a recent change? Looks like a great day. It was gray and overcast when I did it. We drove over 2000 miles RT to ride 35, but it was worth it.

I’m not quite sure what C&V Mountain Biking is as I am close to the origin on the learning curve. But, I’ve been riding a 1991 Univega Alpina Team and today I rode up 4,400 feet in 9 miles which was a first for me. Then, I turned around and with ever increasing confidence, crashed on the way down. Nothing broken but skin. Sorry that I didn’t take a
picture of my Alpina today.

It's all about the bike (this time)

I've had my new DiNucci for over a month, but thanks to a variety pack of physical ailments today was the first ride of any length.
I rode one of my favorite local loops in beautiful spring weather. I'll let the bike do the rest of the talking...












Thanks for humoring me with my certainly-not-vintage bike. I do hope you agree it is classic in the fine tradition of steel bikes.

I did it in 2017 and took the very short route and had no gravel I assumed it was something only found on the longer routes but it could be new, this section was on the short (10 mile) route and in looking at the map appears to be the only gravel part on any route. It was sunny and about 55 degrees, perfect for April. Great event.

One of the prettier bikes to grace this forum. imho

You are the fortunate owner and I am the somewhat envious admirer.

Congrats.

@obrentharris I love that orange color on your bike

Today rode the Bottecchia home. I must say DA 7400 is smooth and quick. I'm liking it alot and the saddle is super comfortable.





If the last pic is too Rated R I'll take it down.

Thanks for the nice words! I never thought I would own one of Mark DiNucci's bikes, custom made for me.
It was a gift from my wife!

Grand Junction, CO - a taste of Main Street art and the paved ‘trail’ to Fruita. Humorously referred to by some locals as ‘the sidewalk’.

River running muddy and fast.




Some places were close enough to the river to fall in.

Palisade and the East Orchard Loop


4700+ - 3 days to adapt should be adequate


Very friendly LBS.
