After eating lunch at a city park in Selah, we ride up the Yakima Canyon

It is quite normal to battle headwinds in the Canyon but on this day, it was remarkably calm. Smiles all around.

The smell of sagebrush and dirt was a welcome change and being able to ride with friends again was good for the soul.

My daily ride to work takes across the river Seine at the Mirabeau Bridge with a nice view of the Eiffel Tower.
Lots more cyclists in Paris at the moment; due to the Covid 19. No one wants to use public transport.

Welcome! Definitely post pics when you can! Isn’t Rosbif a term used for a Brit?

I've really wanted to get on the Old Croton Aqueduct trail and play in the dirt. The full run is too long for me to do there-and-back and I wasn't keen on taking the train back to Manhattan. After a lot of hemming and hawing I decided to head towards the South County Trail which is a parallel route a few miles to the east and paved. Wouldn't you know that I found myself on the Aqueduct trail? Whodathunkit? I ran up as far as Tarrytown, near the Tappan Zee (coughcoughMarioCoumo?) Bridge. There and back was a tad over 43 of which about 30 was dirt, and the most fun I've had riding this year.


Still in the Bronx, the fun begins.


I was so happy to be on the trail.

Went up and did a couple of loops on Fairmount Blvd in Portland. On the way back I always ride through the high school parking lot. There’s a mulch pile which is always changing shape, but is always some sort of jump, and I always roll over it just for fun. Well, the kids must have too much time on their hands because they dug out the middle of it to make a pit to jump over. I wasn’t ready for a double! I managed to ride through it, but it was very close! I usually reserve that sort of adrenaline for the mountain bike!

Rain overnight, cool morning on Sunday, we waited until the afternoon to go for a ride around the upper Snoqualmie Valley. We met over at Bobs house. Rick brought his latest build - a 60’s era Jack Taylor. New bikes of course, attract attention..

Lynn on her way up the Uplands neighborhood.
Lynn in the Uplands by Matthew Pendergast, on Flickr

The Uplands is a great warmup.Normally I do it as part of a loop to Rattlesnake Lake but today, Lynn wanted to stay on pavement to avoid getting dirty so when we got to the top of the hill we just turned around and rode back down the same way we climbed up. It is a really safe and fast descent.

I had to laugh at myself as I was descending. I realized that I was enjoying it so much, I started to drool like when you begin to eat a delicious meal. The wind was howling in my ears and drool was streaking across my cheeks from the corners of my mouth :-)

We headed out to the Middle Fork Road. Steve and I getting a bit ahead of the others in the fun sections like on the one way Lake Dorothy Road.
Steve by Matthew Pendergast, on Flickr

MF3 by Matthew Pendergast, on Flickr

This was Ricks 1st ride after building up the Jack Taylor. He had a few minor issues and eventually left us a little early on the return leg because of concerns about a loose pedal
Rick by Matthew Pendergast, on Flickr

Along the way, I ran into an old friend, Sean. The last time I had ridden with him was back in September 2018. The day I went down on the backside of Stampede Pass and broke my collarbone. He had helped shepherd me 30 miles back to the car. That was a hard day.
A chance meeting with my friend Sean by Matthew Pendergast, on Flickr

Our turn around spot was the Middle Fork Trail Head. Sean left up there and continued on while we rode back.

Next, we rode out to Ernies Grove.

I realized it was getting late, after 5 and I decided to peel off and ride home so I wouldn’t be late for dinner. Bob, Steve, and Lynn continued on to do the “Tokul Loop”

Another decent day made even better with friends

I haven't been able to take a picture like this yet, this season. For obvious reasons, but still.

Rode 30 miles today on one of my standard routes southwest of Charlottesville. One might think from my recent pics that we're all a bunch of lushes here in C-ville with images of vineyards, beer, "beer-centric" B+B's. You might be right, so here's a pic outside a distillery. Really nice riding weather today with some clouds and temps around 70. Normally we're settled into the hot humid stuff by now.

Got some nice half clips in the mail so I was able to put some smaller less blocky nice classic pedals on my Ralieigh MT-200 the change actually gives me the half inch more size I needed. Really impressed how nice this bike rides did about 20 miles to and back Alma on the path and came back on the back roads with a bit of round about since one road was closed.
