Good Weather and Good Bikes

Here we are, with a weekend of 85 degree weather, lots of sunshine, and some of the longest days of the year. In January, we'll long for days like these. For that matter, in the humidity of August, we will long for days like these. Nature offers no better condition for riding.

I've been tweaking and riding the 1948 Raleigh Dawn Tourist. The bike is stately and the ride is pretty leisurely. It's heavy, but it handles reasonably well and is enjoyable on the road.
