    I had the privilege of riding my AllPro Cruiser, "Mountain Gal" Up on the Latah trail in Idaho while visiting my Grandparents. It was beautiful.

    Went to the Bicycle coop and got some parts that you can see me messing with on her, like that Dyna light on the front.

    Man, I really dig that Kona. I've been keeping my eye out for one and I've seen a few pop up, but way too pricey for my budget. Anyway, great looking rig!

    Thanks man. It took me a long time to find mine. The frame and fork & a few bits surfaced kinda locally. RRB member @thebigorangecat saw it and let me know. I made the three hour drive the next morning. It’s for sure in my top 3. And out of 50+ Bikes, it’s one of two that ‘live’ in the house.

    Just picked a '56 Jaguar. Put air in the tires and rode her around the block. Had to shift manually but she rides. IMG_20181210_144604638.jpg

    Did the 4th Annual Williamsport, MD Christmas Lights Bike Ride this evening. It was the first time I've done this ride; it was pretty amazing. Rode my '68 Panther, lightly decked out for Christmas. There were lots of folks there that went WAY harder at the Christmas decorating than I did...

    Despite the 1/4" slop in the rear hub and the big old knobbies...this bike is fast and smooth...it defies physics:dance2:

    That's a fun little town. Did the winter ride go down along the towpath and river bottom? One of my childhood bikes was left in a shed there

    This particular ride does not go on the towpath. We ride through a couple of residential neighborhoods and then to a little restaurant in the middle of downtown. It was my first time doing the ride, and I was AMAZED... people come out on their front porches and wave as if it was Santa on the fire truck. It helps that leading the ride is a two-person tricycle with a huge PA speaker in the basket, blaring Christmas music and holiday greetings from the guy leading the ride.

    I have ridden and walked the towpath, though. It's a beautiful, level ride. And Williamsport is a really nice little town. I teach middle school just up the road in Clear Spring... the canal and towpath are a big thing in all the towns along the southern border of Washington County.

    Small world. Some of my friends graduated from clear spring. I really enjoy the towpath when I get a chance to ride or walk it. Pretty neat that they have a Christmas ride period. That had to have started after we moved. I grew up in the hagerstown and surrounding area so I understand how big of a tourist/ recreational area it is. Just never seen a group bike ride

    This ride has actually only been done in Williamsport for a few years. They tried it first in Hagerstown, and in trying to get it promoted, for whatever reason, they discovered that the town of Williamsport was much more receptive to the whole idea. It's pretty much two groups coming together: a few of the Retro-Ride Hagerstown group (we ride Thursday evenings from spring through fall) and a whole lot of families from Hagerstown BMX.

    took the Manta Racer out for a shakedown run. it's a nice rider. I didn't realize till we got going that it has tiny little kid-sized pedals... will have to address that.

    we took advantage of the mid-50s temps to ride across town to the Blue Moon Cafe.

    Cool. I was wondering how old it was. Other than a few scuffs in the paint it seems like new.
