After the exploration fiasco, I backtracked and took a side "trail." Probably just where a couple people walked their dogs through the long grass. ;)

20134

It took me back to the end of the Rose Field runway and the Nidda. I kept on the single track until I came to the reconstructed bridge to the Eschersheimer Friebad. When the rebuilt the bridge this winter they took out all the bike parking (over 50 inverted U style racks) and haven't replaced them yet. The new bridge opened mid-May, before the pools summer opening.

I had to eat something with Grüne Soße (Quich) and rode a variant of the GrünGürtel

20140 Start of the ride needed to detour, I guess it was time to unload the Toi Tois (Porta Potties) in the Kleingartenverein

20141 Mandatory photo-op at the GrünGürtel flying green armadillo on the Nidda bridge to Maurice Rose Field, Bonames

20142 Frankfurt from the Berger Hang (on the Wanderweg, not the Radweg route)

20143 Schafe mit ein paar Lämmern

20144 I guess they forgot to "rake" this forest like the Finns :rolleyes:

counsularider, I am curious what lighting setup you run to be StVZO compliant.

I had my Kona Rove modified with a Schmidt SON front dynamo hub and Busch & Müller front and rear lights once I got to Germany. However, battery powered lights have been permitted in Germany since 2017 and I am using those on my road bike and my fat bike. That said I have only seen the "bike police" once in three years and there are lots of people on bikes without lights after dark.

My time in Germany is drawing to a close, but I still have time to get out for some of my favorite rides. Today's photos are outside of Frankfurt loosely following the Nidda River.

20155 In the Pfingstwald near Ober-Eschbach

20156 Looking ENE in the barley files between Nieder-Eschbach, Ober-Eschbach, and Nieder-Erlenbach

20157 Looking West in the barley files between Nieder-Eschbach, Ober-Eschbach, and Nieder-Erlenbach

20158 Grey Heron on the Nidda River near Harheim

20159 Looking NW towards Großer Feldberg from barley field below Frankfurter Berg. This gravel was new this past winter because of some type of work being done along the neighboring railroad tracks, lots of heavy machinery.

Did you make it up to Bonnet Carre Spillway (upriver by Norco)? Setting a record for most days open.

Did not go that far up. This was a quick 15 mile lunch break spin. Made it about a quarter of the way there before turning around under the Huey Long Bridge.

I volunteer as a ride marshal for Critical Mass in my adopted other home in Bristol, UK [emoji636]. Our last ride teamed up with the Extinction Rebellion on Clean Air Day. Here’s a video for those who may be interested (and a free beer [emoji481] if you can spot me)

"Fun" fact: it is 1.2 miles around the Legoland Florida parking lot. (I'm pretty sure "my bike in a disco elevator" would be too specific for tag...)https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190705/f18657afcdceb1d0e4f74a2d822112dd.jpg

Woot! About your shirt, I could be wrong, but I thought that either Steve O or Shepard had it? I'll find out and let you know.

If it’s @SteveO, he has probably worn it several times and appropriated it, like he did my Crystal City Friday at the Fountain beer [emoji481] mug, until I lured him into a repossession trap!:-0

It works remarkably well for chain cleaning.

Shepard had it, but I do now. Are you going on Steve-O's midnight saddles ride tonight? If so, I may be there, and if I am, I'll bring it.

Shepard, as in Gordon Shepard, the astronaut [emoji1956]? Is that why we had to meet at the Air & Space Museum?;-)

I had never ridden Kirby Rd. past the Marie Butler Nature Preserve to 123, but knowing the road was closed so there would be little car traffic and I might be able to ride up the hills without getting run over, I did yesterday, partially to check out the damage.

The barriers they have up are great for stopping cars but are no match for a bicycle:

I know this thread is for pics, and this is a vid. But isn't a video just like, thousands of pics mashed together? ;)

Last Friday, Al and I biked up the Rachel Carson Greenway to a fishing hole. Well, biked and hiked...

I've been doing some exploring of New York on bike over the past 10 days, one Borough to go. Here's an unedited video heading up the 1st Ave bike lane (53rd to 59th) in Manhattan and crossing the Ed Koch Queensboro Bridge from my Long Island century ride last Thursday. This is with a GoPro Hero 3+. It picks up very little sound other than the pause beep from my Garmin Edge and what sounds like chain noise. The only time you hear my voice is at 10:02 when the three cyclists block the lane during the green light ("Vamanos señores," very faint). I was calling most of my passes and using my bell, something that almost no one seems to do in this area.
