After the East Orchard Loop t’was time to head back toward the river trail to check it out.



Down by the river.........


Would not want to launch into that muddy river, oh so swollen.

I got back about a half hour ago and took a shower... Nice 14.83 mile ride down along Riverside Dr along the James River here in Richmond, VA. I clipped on a smartphone holder onto the steering stem and enabled Strava. It was dead on accurate...

14.83 miles... 56:04.... 15.8 mph

Rode some of the RiverBend Park trail from the GJ 29thRd at C. Nicely graveled parking area. But it is a State Park with fees (just to make riders aware. Again the nicknamed The Sidewalk is deserved. But car free and some benches and some picturesque spots.








Hunt area + MUP **********? Only in the american west.

So my son came home on spring break and asked to take a bike back to school. He choose my red univega. He’s a distance runner so I’m glad he’s getting cross training on a c&v bike. Anyways he sent me this pic today and I thought it was worthy to share with you all. Cheers, Kevin.

Drove out to Arches National Park and rode the bikeway off of the “auto/RV/truck busy 2 lane distracted by ogling the sights” highway. Saved the pics for the most eye popping spots which are not accessible from the bikeway.

Great shots, I was lucky enough to visit Arches and other great parks in the Southwest back in 1992 - wow nearly 30 years ago. Beautiful country.

Continuing the Grand Junction, Colorado trip......
Felt the need for a bunch of miles, which eliminates rides with too much steep.
So a steady climb on the Batavus (9sp RacingT)
I-70 Exit to Mesa (Hwy 65 - east of Palisade) and rode to Vega State Park.

i will edit some pics and post a 2nd grouping.




Wide open, low traffic roads. A river road.


Zero malfunctions.


1908. Survived a lot of cold winters up here. Never saw an elevation posted, but a few wide spots in road for ‘Chain Up area’.

Gentle climb up for 30 miles with tailwind and gentle crosswinds. Gentle descend with afternoon winds increasingly stronger and blustery in the winding canyon spots. Sunscreen, liberally applied was a good idea. Metric century in one 5 hour ride; extra 6 pre-miles gives daily total equal to this year’s age.

I took the Legnano $100 Challenge Project Bike on the Pasadena Velo Retro Vintage rise. Great day to ride 27 miles, nice turnout. Crazy traffic from some Korean teeny bop concert at the Rose Bowl. Good day on the bike though!

Out with @Andy_K on our "standard" ride - the Neal Lerner Invitational route, with a stop at the South Market Cafe in Scholls. Bright, warm day, we were riding along and found this photo op:



Andy was riding his gorgeous Stella, I was riding a "facilitator bike purchase" for @Spaghetti Legs - a Shimano LX 3X9 Waterford built Heron

44 miles on the old Peugeot on a Camarillo to Malibu run. Great ride, except for worrying about a loose handlebar stem screw. Being French, it doesn't fit any of my multi tools, so I kind of angled a too small hex driver in, sort of tightened it and held my breath - for 25 miles in PCH Sunday traffic. Nice tailwind home, so I hurried to get home before the handle bars and the bike parted ways. Had a just short of 17mph average. The newly installed Stronglight 99 crankset worked great. All in all a good day on the bike.

Morning at Mission Oaks Park, Camarillo.

Foggy morning at Magu Rock regroup.
