Longish fixed gear ride today at 32 miles. My legs are always a special kind of worn out after a long ride on this bike.

65° and sunny today. I wouldn't be surprised if my local bike path set a record for total number of people. It was absolutely packed.

Very late start with chores, extra yard mowing, etc. ....So I was merely looking for Sunday afternoon ‘saddle time’, about 20 miles meandering May Valley on a dry day.
Finding I need the triple to face the final climb home.
Random pics.



Not sure it is a match, but nice color

Many horse boarding opportunities around

The spiritual Sinuous Infinity Tree. From which there is No Outlet.



May Valley was a small-ish farming area

Now just meadows and a 2 lane.

Backroads, the major ones still busy with fast traffic.

Home safely

ooooppps, our of order. Farm equipment useless but for a modest repurpose.

Glad to be posting this thread, as always.

We've continued to have an amazing amount of rain this past week, combined with temps in the high fifties, everything is SUPER green!

Yes, I'm still riding, but like everybody else I'm doing things a little differently. Saturday 04-25-20, between two rainy days, I went for a 26.8-mile road-and-trail ride in Montgomery County, PA, that included a meal stop. But . . . no Wendy's. No Applebee's. No places like that. I had to settle for a Royal Farms convenience store where I got a grilled chicken sandwich, their western fries, and a drink. Hey, it'e either that or those tasteless energy bars. Nothing on this ride worth photographing either.

By the way, I didn't realize my bike was 10 years old! But yep, I'm still riding it, and thanks to the folks at my local bike shop, Bikesport in Trappe, PA, it still works great. I got it tuned up in February before all this hit, and it's a good thing now I did.

Today I took my Gazelle Team ForelDorado-Golff from 1996 for a short evening ride.



Due to a lack of rain some roads in the forest were a bit dusty but she still looks amazing in the evening sun. All pictures taken just southwest of Breda (the Netherlands) near a small village called Effen.

@Hajo That bike of yours gave meba hankering for some sour gummy worms.

The Vittoria tire with the cut held up on a hard smashing 8 mile ride this afternoon. Went fast, hit bumps and bunny hopped home. Tire held up fine.

Yes it is an unusual color scheme but still original.



On July 15th 1996 at the start of a race in Bergrijk (the Netherlands). My bike is not on this picture BTW.
@obrantharris : yes I know, there is still a lot out there to be discovered!

I got out for 16 miles northwest of LA, a few easy hills, and a nice ride. Mid 80s, just enough breeze, great day to ride. I was really tired, and thought it was because I didn't sleep well last night. When I checked Strava, I had 6 personal bests, on my 1964 Legnano, that I've been riding since new. One PB was on a short but steep hill pulling a 42/28 low gear. I love that old bike.

Two old tractors. A play tractor at the kids park and my play tractor.

Kids pkayground at nearby Oakridge Park.

Small hawk way up, on the pole.

Back home among the irises.

I took my De Rosa out for a short hilly ride above the Claremont Hotel in the Berkeley hills.



I usually climb up Tunnel Road, which is a curvy 4-mile climb, not very steep, nice view of the SF bay--which also makes it a very popular route for local cyclists. Instead, to stay clear of the crowds, I climbed up the next road over, Claremont Drive, which covers about the same elevation in about half the mileage. It's a steep, nasty climb--2 miles with an average grade of 9.3%. I was reminded why I generally avoid it. I stopped here for a photo op (and an excuse to catch my breath).



Obligatory bike shot.

68 miles on some very quiet roads and trails today. North Bend to Duvall Loop.
Most notable, up in the Tolt Highlands, a doodle as made by a heavy equipment operator.

Another lunch alone beside the trail in Duvall. Really starting to miss riding with friends

Big distance/climbing day yesterday, 90 miles, 4800 feet, heading in the general direction of Mt Hood. In addition to the wonderful natural scenery, I saw a couple things I'd never seen before. Since it was tougher than usual, I needed to stop a bit more as well. Picture taking made for a good excuse to stop.
