    2024 - Our Rides in Words, Photos, Maps and Videos

    I rode 17 miles today, very hot and humid these days. A couple of pictures of the crops. The old saying used to be knee high by the 4th of July for corn this is already waist high.

    HP brown sauce? Never heard of it here in the states. When you talked about your sandwich I’ve never heard of those words except bacon, we like bacon here in the states. 🥓. We recently spent two weeks in Ireland and some things were the same but many were different. Sugar, coffee, catsup...

    I did a short 10 miles today. This is an area I rode in but this picture is from about 3 weeks ago.

    Tough to compete with that Prairie Dog, looked like a spectacular ride and scenery. My wife and I rode13 miles today. We stopped and took a short break at a church. I’m not sure but I don’t think they have services there any more. We were trying to figure out if the concrete things with...

    Turbo Vado 5: too unstable on the kickstand

    If it’s a kickstand mounted at the rear of the bike they can be unstable. I broke the original one on mine but my wife’s is still original. Mine is just a tiny bit longer and is more stable.

    We rode 15 miles today, no pictures from the ride but I did a little maintenance on my wife’s bike chain afterwards. I‘m pretty diligent about lubing the bike chains every 100 miles.

    You guys kill me with these pictures. My wife and I rode 16 miles yesterday but I couldn’t find anything to take a picture of unless you like to see corn or soybean fields.

    I did 13 miles today. I’ve gone by this rock several time memorializing an old farmstead . The house and any barns are long gone.

    Gazelle Arroyo vs Trek Verve +1

    A Trek Verve +3 would be better. A more powerful motor and bigger battery than a Verve +1. A Verve +1 would probably work for you because of your light weight though as long as you aren’t going far. I’d guess the battery would get you about 25 to 30 miles. The Gazelle Arroyo I found info on...

    90 miles per charge. Too good to be true?

    I’d say my Trek Verve 3 could go close to 90 miles on eco. That’s a lot of hard pedaling though.

    I rode 21 miles today at what for me is a high speed of 15 mph. Light winds and the threat of rain had me pedaling a little harder. A typical roadway picture and a Dollar General Store I ride by often. For those of you that have never been in a Dollar General picture a store crappier than...

    Good Reads for the Season

    I tend to latch onto an author and read a lot of their books. Lately it’s been CJ Box. I read a lot of Lee Childs-Reacher books but they are growing a little old since his brother started. I’ve also read a lot of classics, like DaFoe (Robinson Crusoe), Jack London (White Fang), Herman...

    Rode up on homeless person sleeping on bike trail.

    I saw a woman outside Walmart with a sign yesterday and today. She had a 5 gallon gas can and a sign that said need gas and diapers. That might have been true but she really wanted money.

    Rab, hope you didn’t hurt yourself on that cracking descent. :) On our trip to Ireland our tour director explained how the tern “crack” is used. More of a good time with good conversation at the pup for example. We told her in the USA crack is illegal and you smoke it.

    Just to add my opinion on cell phone pictures. I own a Cannon Rebel DSLR camera. On paper it takes a better picture than a cell phone camera. In the real world any newer cell phone with a good quality camera will match it for quality. The only advantage of a DSLR camera is if you start...

    I rode 29 miles today, a long ride for me. Bardolph Illinois was my destination, population about 200 people, a picture of the only thing of significance, the post office. I use an iPhone 15 for my pictures.
