Had a ride with the Mrs. today on the fixed gear road bikes.
Just a 25km evening ride, but damn those bikes are fun!
I did just short of 50km/h at some point. It's gonna be interesting when I get a cadence sensor for that bike.

I’m up for the challenge. I’m working as we speak but I’m off tomorrow and it’s only going to be 98 degrees. I gave up on ride reports awhile back but I’ll get back with it.

If I could just get the goose off my handlebars I’ll get back to riding.

It's an old Soviet track bike. Hearsay has it that it was part of the olympics in Montreal.
My former self butchered the original fork, and didn't bother taking the front wheel along. :doh:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CCCP_(disambiguation)

Hence the CCCP wheel.

Yeah, that's not bad at all.
It's also easier to justify bikes, when she has a pile of bikes as well.

put summer rubber on the snow bike for a 22 mile multi surface wander. Stone dust powder made it look like a ghost bike

Old canal lock 62

Nice!
I grew up riding motorcycles on that canal road. The “old Erie Canal” does exist.

So many old transport systems in the area to play on back then. Good to see most of it repurposed as pathways. Great resources

So many engineering accomplishments from the past were completely abandoned and laid to waste - railroads, water transportation canals, streetcars, ...

Some unreal aqueduct work all over the region. I’ve seen one reopened over near Syracuse.

One structure will never be topped. The little known Genesee Valley canal used to run right on the cliff at Letchworth. Crazy bastid engineers

It's amazing what was built using dynamite and cheap labor. We couldn't build most of the large projects, that were built over 100 years ago, today.

Yep, upstate NY is an amazing place. I’ve been, fished and water skied on every one of those finger lakes. Amazing geologically speaking and man made area.
