On the way home we saw a rider cutting through the park at high speed. The rider shouted-out and it turned out to be a friend out for an evening rip on a Holdsworth singlespeed I built up for him while working at Redstone. He rides MTB now as well and we're going to hit up some high country singletrack soon.

Rode around my home town for a while on my '55 Raleigh on Saturday.

It was a nice day! Got home about 4:00am. Slept. Finished unloading the car. Cappuccino then a ride as the rain moved in late afternoon. Just a sprinkle to cool things off a bit. Helped work the soreness out of my shoulder.......:bigsmile:

Since the theme for Bike Night was "Red, White & YOU!" last night, I took my red Shelby since it is great to decorate for Independence Day. Monsoon storms limited the group to about 25. The rain stopped just in time for perfect weather for a ride!:rockout:

We rode to the top of a recently finished parking structure for 5 levels of fun!

I wasn't happy with how my legs behaved on yesterday's ride, they didn't feel like getting me outta the saddle. Therefore, a training day along the canal on Snakebite, who definitely will teach you not to sit

Very pleased to see this blue heron, one of my favorite companions, and so close to home. My house is about two blocks beyond that building in the background

it's the stanciest bike I've built. It's a keeper
That is a very special ride. Great work.
I would agree, "It's a keeper"

Two quick Questions.
I know it's not a bike, but have you ever ridden "Boulder Dash" ????

Is it still running after all the covid mess ?

Have watched the go-pro front seat view many times.
Have even considered making the cross-country trek just to ride it. Too far.
That's a wild ride.
