Thanks! Yes, it's a PR10. Specifically, as identified by esteemed forum member verktyg, a 1975 PR10-L. Would you believe I found this just a couple of blocks from my house left on the curb with the trash? Literally saved from the dump (build thread).

I really expected this thread to take off. I know it's asking a lot, but I think over the next week all C&V posters should ride their bike to a bakery, take a picture, and have a tasty treat.

@Andy_K is visiting for our hopefully annual again bikes and Mariners-Orioles baseball (ooh, another thread idea!) get-together. Today’s ride included the famous-to-PNW cyclists Black Diamond Bakery. There’s a story around here that cyclists saved this bakery (then tiny but with awesome cinnamon rolls, now a full restaurant as well as all the baked goodies) from extinction decades ago. Maybe someone can confirm the rumor?


The array of delectable goodies:
When I rented the Tiny house on the organic dairy farm in Enumclaw for about a year, I was a frequent customer to the Black Diamond Bakery! Here in Durango, we have Bread Bakery, which is a popular cyclist hangout. Bread Bakery is not terribly scenic will take some pictures.....

I thought the same about big bodies of water, but, oh well. Good bit of water in the Bridge thread, anyhow!

Bread Bakery Durango Colorado

As promised a couple of photos outside of Bread Bakery in Durango which is a popular cyclist hangout..... Sometimes a former World Champion or two can be seen, but not while I was there this morning.....


The original owner who has since passed away was a cycling fanatic.....

Old Faded Banner from 1990 Mountain Bike World Championships which was won by Durango local Ned Overend.

Kickstand In Arlington, MA
This is a pretty common meeting place for my riding buddies. We usually fuel up here before heading out on our rides.
It has bike tools, a pump, and a very nice outdoor seating area.




Ferns in Carlisle, MA
Outstanding pop tarts (no pics because they were sold out! )
They also have tools and a pump. And sell patch kits.



Nashoba Brook Cafe in West Concord
Probably my favorite outdoor seating. However today, the brook had a pretty strong "pond" smell







Main Streets Cafe in Concord. This used to be my favorite, but the removed the benches outside in favor of sit down service with waiters.
They have great breakfast sandwiches.


Finally (for yesterday's ride at least)
Haute Coffee, also in Concord (and basically across the st from Main Streets)
Very yummy.
