Nice day in NH went for 29 mile ride. Went to Bow NH. The mirror had a free sign on it at the end of a drive way.

Went for a ride with Ira's dad the day before yesterday. Our son, Julian, is 6'6" and probably needs a big and tall bike. I think he kind of dwarfs this one.

This is on Lummi Shore Rd. on the west side of Bellingham Bay, looking back east at the town with Mt. Baker (10,700 ') just 25 miles inland.

A little windy today but I managed a very enjoyable 70 miles, 35 miles of tailwind and 35 miles of headwind! After 35 miles of tailwind I had 77% battery left, the 20mph headwind soon ate that up and 5 miles from home my battery dropped to 8% :eek: So I turned the assist off and saved it for the 2 climbs of 10% near home, the second of which was into the headwind so it was a wise move ;) My 2019 total is now 2,484 miles from 41 rides, average distance of 60.58 miles which I'm very happy with :)

Decided to go over the Alex Fraser Bridge the other day... cuz it's there... ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Heading north up from the Delta side.





Looking east at the apex of the bridge.



Heading down the north side of the bridge was exhilarating... until I came across a sign post that took up over 50% of the walkway. Hydraulic brakes rock! There was some rubber laid down. :rolleyes:

Nice day in NH temp in upper 60 lower 70. Went out to New Boston NH. Went on the short rail trail started at Lang Station end and ended at the fair grounds. The scenic pictures on Wilson Hill Rd do not do the view justice.

August was my first full month of owning an R&M Homage. I made the best of it. Its an addictive bike!

Congratulations David. What an impressive way to break in your new bike! The Homage is such a great ride!

It rained a few days this past month so I came up a bit short in August with 885 miles. I did bust through 100,000 total miles since recording with the Nyon. Add in approximately 1,600 for a total of 101,700 since I started riding an ebike in February of 2018. My car is feeling very neglected.

I know your Connecticut winters are more restrictive for bike riding than ours in coastal Washington. I have learned quite a bit about how to layer up for comfortable cold weather riding. Happy to chat about that if you want to start a private conversation.

To close out August I arranged a 60 mile ride with my wife Marji and her sister Bev. They rode our original Magnum Metro bikes. Marji still loves her Magnum. The range of the Magnums is about 40 miles so we rode to Bev's house about 25 miles away and charged the bikes while we had lunch and swam. She lives on Coventry lake. The remaining 35 miles we toured the area both Marji and I grew up in but had not biked in. It was very nostalgic. A lot of changes over the years.

Fall is rapidly approaching. The hay is being stored for winter.

Beautiful old barn still being used. Not many farms are still working.

39 mi day down the Platte to Bear Creek and west to the 13th tee at Homestead Golf Course, then home. 715ft climb in last mile out, twisty paved path, great views even on a hazy day. Most of Bear Creek is nice, long wooded stretches some open almost savannah areas. Had to stop at Grant Frontier on the way out; transportation has come a long way.

edit: checked ride profile, total climb was 715, just under 350 ft last mi.

Marji and I rode through part of the Natchaug State Forest in Eastford, CT yesterday. They were in the process of clearing out the dead oak trees killed by 3 years of gypsy moth blight. The trees can survive 2 years of defoliation but not 3. This area was hard hit.

Riding through an avenue of healthy trees in the same forest. Marji has a new Cygolite Hotshot tail light. It is very bright even in full daylight.

Nice day in NH temp at start upper 60's and into low 70's. It was a 51 mile ride. At end I had 5% battery left. According to the manual at 10% battery left the system will start to reduce the amount of assistance I did not feel this happening at 10% since at 10% I was over 6 miles from home. When it got to 5% thats when I felt the assistance being regulated at that time I was less then a mile from home. It was a hilly ride 3,876 total ascent and my average speed was 13.2 MPH.
