Nice day for a ride...


                        Antonio and Rose from Sacramento out for a ride on a beautiful day.



While driving to the Bay Area from Sacramento, I was passed by an interesting looking bike. As I pulled into the rest stop, I noticed that the bike had also pulled in . Usually it seems I'll see something interesting on the road, and not get a chance for a second look. The paint work on this bike caught my eye. It's a nice copper hue. As it turned out they were from Sacramento. After introducing myself, it turned out that they were very friendly, and didn't mind talking to a chatty blogger, and agreed to pose for a blog picture. We had a nice talk about bikes and blogs. Rose had talked her brother Antonio into a ride out to Halfmoon Bay, to enjoy the ocean air...and have dinner at a nice place. Good plan, it's going to hit 95-96 degrees F in Sacramento today. It'll be 20 degrees cooler, or more on the coast. Antonio said it is an anniversary model. Rose says she is teaching her brother how to navigate on a computer, so hopefully they will find the blog and get to see themselves.

Home made in America.....


Here's Daniel with his home brewed 'Motor Driven Cycle'...or is it a moped because it has pedals?



Anyway...take one J.C. Higgins frame, a motor from China, some assorted bicycle parts and some really groovy red tires....and some skillful assembly...and you too can connect with your inner Rollie Free.

Speaking of home made...in Scotland, The staff at the Cub Mag came through . 
The first Cub Mag arrived with a T-shirt and cool coffee mug. Here's a shot from the 'Shameless promotion' department.  It's a great read and fits into my mini laptops carrying case perfectly.
