I'm interested in tagging along. I'll keep my eyes on this thread. What about the rest of the CPD guys?

Everyone: I'm planning a trip to Joseph for lunch on May 9 (birthday ride!). It will be mostly twisty asphalt roads with the Spiral Highway, Asotin Grade, Rattesnake Grade, and perhaps a loop through Troy on the way back. Let's meet at the Sage Bakery in Uniontown at 8:30am (I'll be there early for a scone!).

Anyone from the valley interested? We could certainly meet somehwere...

I won't be sure til a couple of days before, but I may want to ride along.

I, too, am interested

I believe that is the weekend before finals so I am not sure that I will be able to make it. But I am definitely going to try.

Also, is anyone up for a ride today. My wife has a dance conference that she needs to go to my day just opened up. I don't have a route planned so if you have one that you would like to go on that would be awesome. If not, I'll try to plan something when I get back from doing the chores.

Hey Tourist (AKA the Tour Guide) do you have any suggestions?

I'm working today.

How about...North to Viola- turn left.
wander to pavement-turn right.
Go to Palouse - right toward Potlatch
Rt at the edge of town...by the RR tracks. Palouse River Rd (I think).
At hwy95 head south.
Left at the Lindsey Farm (on the flat) or at Walser Farm (at the base of Crooks Hill, where we turned left toward Palouse). I think the signs are Rudd Road these days. A nice little loop.


OR...


Head toward Robinson Park - bear left at the park.
Aim east and skirt Moscow Mountain. Up and down and curvy roads thru the trees.
Lions Rd, Randall Flats, Big Meadow Rd into Troy.
South end of Troy bear right to Kendrick then Rt to Julietta.
In the center of Julietta turn rt up the hill.
Will tee at the Genesee Julietta Rd. left to Genesee...rt to Lenville Rd and Moscow.

TheTourist (aka TourGuide aka Dickepedia) comes through, as always!

Sorry, can't join you guys today. Sick kid, in-laws visiting, piano recital, wife on case for spending all my time in the shop with my Italian girlfriend (I call her guzzi!), etc. Have fun!

Looking forward to the 9th already...

Saturday is supposed to be in the mid 60s. Sounds like it could be perfect time to take it out for a scenic cruise.

Rode to Spokane...

The Guzzi is back together:


So yesterday I made an excuse to ride to Spokane for (ahem) work. Yeah, we'll call it that. Outside Garfield:


Self portrait practice:


Stopped at buddy's house in Spokane, tried to plant the seed about getting another bike, so I let him take a spin. Sporting the latest safety gear:



Went to 3 hours of student presentations.


Stopped and saw my brother:


Checked out a derailment (outside Rosalia):


Back home (pics courtesy of my five year old):



Bike works great, although periodically pukes a few drops of oil to prove that its Italian.

That is a great looking machine the Mr. Vintage. My hat goes off to you for putting it together yourself. I am rather inept when it comes to mechanical expertise. I am still trying to figure out if I trust myself enough to change change the oil. Anyway, congratulations! I'm going to repeat Wadel's question and ask if that is the bike that you will be riding next weekend?
