Been trying to ride every day lately to help get a good weigh-in for my annual physical this week.

I took my freshly repaired '38 Western Flyer for Bike Night last night. The frame broke at the mid/seat tube 22 months ago after 7 rides from being built. @Palepainter stitched it back together this past weekend and is my new Hero! The bike was quickly becoming a favorite ride. Smooth & silent! :heart: So happy to have it back in rotation....

Since my Mead was the easiest to grab, I took it out for Bike Night last night. But didn't take a picture of it......🤷‍♂️ We had about 75 people out for a lovely evening of bicycle fun!

The girl with the electric trike was my fave of the evening! That trike hauls & she drives like a pro!!

When MonkeyArms posts those group ride pictures, my hope for humanity is restored, if only for a moment. I need to move to a bike-centric area.

I have my first cross race of the season on Sunday, so I put new brake pads on the Ridley and took it out for a few hot laps on my local cross practice loop in a nearby park last night:

Even if an inhuman like me is in the pics?

While there are a lot of cyclists in our 'burg, much more could be done if the local government were being steered properly. IMO, this weekly cruiser ride is by far the biggest show of advocacy here, which is way better than nothing at all. Start a similar ride in your 'hood and make your town more bike-centric.

^^ I'm up to my eyeballs in raising littles. For that reason I barely get enough riding. I can't justify spending any of that valuable time trying to convince my tough town about bicycles.
