Rode the old San Pablo Dam rd to Orinda for coffee. Good mix of path, road, gravel. Shot past the main rec area into Scow Canyon.

On the 4th I rode the O&W and Wallkill Rail Trails with a bit of paved paths and roads at the northern and southern ends. Then there was the part where I dropped my phone and spent a half hour looking for it in the wrong place. I thought it was just north of the sign below. Turned up farther along the trail.

Slowly making my way to Cino. Along with my Cino bike I also brought my modern gravel bike for some rides along the way. Yesterday's ride was in the Fall River Valley of far north-east California. 52 miles, about 50/50 gravel and pavement.

Speaking of Cino, took my Kona out this morning for a shakedown ride before I pack it up before Friday’s journey to Montana.



I changed out the original flat bar/twist-shifter cockpit for a Surly Open bar and Deore 7-speed thumbies in friction mode. They play great with the XTR drivetrain.

I got out for the first proper ride on my newly-built Mystery bike. It rode great. Really smooth and comfortable ride over fairly rough roads today. From Berkeley, I rode out east over the Berkeley hills into Tilden Park, then down Wildcat Cayon, around the San Pablo Reservoir, connected to the Happy Valley Road climb before looping back to Berkeley via Wildcat and Tilden Park again. A bit cool and overcast to start before eventually turning into a pleasant, sunny afternoon.


Quick stop at Inspiration Point, Tilden Park, Berkeley, which I've shown many times before.

Crews were out working on the roads today. Some recently paved patches caused me to stop and wipe off the sticky new tarmac. This section of Wildcat Canyon Rd. already got the treatment.

A switchback on Wildcat Canyon Rd ascent/descent.

View overlooking San Pablo Briones Reservoir

Happy Valley Road climb--short, steep, scenic.

The Mystery Bike.

Good catch. That's Briones Reservoir in the photo, not San Pablo Reservoir. Although, you do get a view of San Pablo Reservoir from Inspiration Point, too.

I finally bit the bullet and drilled the seatstay bridge on my amateur built track frame so that I could run front and rear brakes.

This iteration of this bike is a total parts bin fixed gear road bike build with a bit of a Francophile flavor. The original fork will not accept a front brake so I have one from a 1985 Schwinn Tempo installed. Ratio is 44x16 on 700x25c tires.

Pellisier track hubs, Sun XCD 50.4 cranks, Velo Orange 44t ring, Velo Orange stem.

And Campy Mirage monoplanar brakes

Working my way north to Cino. I rode yesterday in Central Oregon, just a few miles north of Riley.
In the entire 32 mile loop I didn't see another vehicle; plenty of evidence of their passing in the washboard roads though!

Way up in the northeast corner of Oregon in the Wallowa Valley. Nicely graded gravel roads through the rolling farm lands.

"Say...is that an Italian?"......

....yes indeed, its my colourful Simoncini.....I'm usually cycling around London taking pics with my camera phone of various artworks and any other interesting things, but today the roles were reversed....


There's not many backgrounds the bike blends in with, but this is one.

We're due a mini heatwave this week in the UK, nothing like as hot as some of you endure, but temps above 30c are pretty rare for us, so its time to dig out the sun screen or we're going to get scorched.....

....or seek out some shade.....

I love old Italian bikes, and I love old Italian cars too, so I stopped and stared......

....at this beautiful condition Lancia Fulvia Coupe from 1965, a rare sight in London. Classic 60's Euro chic.



And just before I got home, on a busy junction outside Southwark station I've passed many times, I spotted something I've never noticed before, obviously I've been too preoccupied with the traffic. This lamp post with a dog licking from a bowl.

A bit of internet sleuthing when I got home reveals it has a connection with Charles Dickens, who as a 12 year old boy walked this way to work, . More info here. https://lookup.london/dog-sculpture-southwark/

This is a tough crowd to keep up with. Nicely done, all of you.

I took the PF10 out for bit this morning, ended up with 29 miles. They were good miles.





I'm sleepy.

Spent a good part of the day trimming our hedge, but got away for a quick 30 miler up to the botanical garden.

Japanese garden island. High pressure is giving us cool temps and blue skies.



Greenhouses at the garden



i got new shoes! The old pair was over 15 years old and were falling apart. Love these - stiff, comfy, and good ventilation.



I also put on a new stem. I was feeling a little scrunched with the 130, so I popped on an old Tioga “T-Bone” 140. Much better and rigid.



Overall, a nice afternoon for a ride. Temps in the low 70s and a lake breeze at my back all the way home.

Another morning ride around the valley.


Pretty clear and cool out this morning.

Took out the most modernish steel bike today even though it is over 25 years old.

Mountains on the east side of the valley are getting pretty dry.

Always love a white fence

Looking east towards the wildlife management area.

Pretty cool mailbox.

I just finished setting up the Opus III for tomorrow's ride. I plan on taking that one out but may change my mind in the morning if the legs feel really good. Got the ol' triple equipped Trek waiting in the wings if I feel like a climbing ride in the morning.

As always, stunning pics from all over. Here in Virginia we’ve had several inches more rain than we needed over the past 36 hours, but the cooler temps are most welcome. Still misty out and roads are wet so I went PNW and took the fendered Heron. A little homage to Tour de France here.

My sweetie and I took the tandem out today, 29 miles, almost exactly what I did yesterday even though it was a different route. As we were zipping along on some back road in Concord we heard a voice behind us say "Could that be Jim and Sharon? Haven't seen you in a long time!" It turned out to be Mike @Ghazmh, someone we'd ridden with a few time some years before. A sweep through the BF files showed it be April, 2017. We spoke for a few minutes and he said "Maybe I"ll see you at Fern's. I'm heading there for some coffee." Then he took off and left us in the proverbial dust. We continued on to rt225, took a left into Carlisle and stopped at Fern's Sure enough he was there having some coffee. We stopped and had a real nice visit. Sharon snapped this pic. That's Mike eating the delicious-looking cinnamon bun. I'm eating the (ahem) health-inducing banana. (I wouldn't have minded one of those buns tho'.)

I'm always up with riding with anyone that makes it to northern Utah. I do have to admit it's getting harder and harder each year to get good pictures up here. Way too much growth going on.

Crooked politicians are allowing developers rezone after rezone that is ruining the area. The guy making this mess had to resign from the local planning commission that approves the rezones. This development is still waiting official approval but with millions already spent tearing up the mountainside you know it's already been "approved". We have been under water restrictions for years now but the crooks in power keep approving all the new development despite a lack of water to go around.

Another 42 miler this morning, mostly while it was cool. This time on a proper C&V bike.


Man I love this bike!

Old cabin as you come into Huntsville

Barn on the outskirts of Huntsville

Side inlet of Pineview

This if from Huntsville proper, Pineview with Snow basin in the background

Town Square

Another shot of Snowbasin

Yet another old barn along my route

Did I mention I love this bike? That saddle bag has a spare tubular, my cellphone, a medium size bottle of sealent CO2 inflator and 3 cartridges, money, ID, valve stem tool and various other tools. I can even expand it more if I need to carry other stuff. Pretty convenient for use on the tubular shod bikes. Maybe overkill as I've yet to flatten a tubular on the road.

Farm in Eden by the square.

Hard to beat low 70s and mostly cloudy after weeks of mid 90s.

Went to try out a hillier route on the fixed gear. Fun in a weird way going up, going down takes a lot of concentration when you’re geared this low - about 71” if I recall.
