    Thanks. Yes I told her she looked graceful, like a pro. I need to start gradually raising the seat. In my experience with the seat that low it's hard on the knees.

    Today I rode with the folks again in the morning. For lunch I went and got a couple hot dogs/sausages at a new restaurant in town that sells "Steamin Weenies". With my recently installed front basket loaded with wieners, chips and drink I went to the park to eat. After my lunch l went for a ride outside of town. This evening I took #14 out that I recently made changes to and rode the local loop.

    I think I might have saw you when you were turning down your street to go home. I was across street at the park taking photos.

    I rode to the store yesterday, once I dropped off the groceries at home... I rode the loop. with the route I take I can get in almost 8 miles.

    I usually go ride anywhere from 3:30 to 6pm. one of these days were all gonna run into each other on the same day!

    Gonna have to try the Steemin Weenie place here soon.

    I was given a simple task to go to the Homeland grocery store just a few blocks away but I took a wrong turn as soon as I left my drive way.

    I just saw this one :lol:

    Totally agree about the positive reinforcement, seat position, and the method for raising it.
    Used the seat raising method with several newbies lately.
    My FIL is a lttle different becasue now he has to swing his leg over it. The reinforcement is working though.

    Incredible picture!!! Looks like some really nice weather lately.

    Great video too!! It's so good to see that someone else likes to make an ordinary task into an adventure
    Half the fun is sharing :D
    Tighten that seat :lol: Were those turkeys or turkey vultures? Couldn't see them very well
    Like the way you picked it up a few notches when the dog start heading your way :lol:
    Interesting historical area. Thanks for sharing
    Steve

    Thanks Steve. I first thought they were turkeys then when I seen several circling above I realized they were vultures. So maybe turkey vultures.

    Got lucky with the dogs.In the video where I have my water bottle out it was in anticipation of another dog. Wife had a chunk of her shoe taken out by a dog along this route another time.

    The first buildings that appear in video are the post office and a church in another town near to here.

    Re: LocoJoe's Most Recent Ride (1 Down Mom's Bucket List)

    One of my Mother's motivators to get on a bike again was so she could ride with her Great-Grand-Kids. After practicing a couple times over the past couple weeks yesterday was the day. Mom, Dad, myself and the 3 kids all rode to McDonald's for supper. The ride was pretty uneventful which was a relief and once home we rewarded ourselves with Twinkies.

    Re: LocoJoe's Most Recent Ride (we're not in kansas anymore)

    Thanks all for the comments.

    We're now on the road to find new places to ride. Here are just a few of many bike art installments in Lincoln Nebraska. It appears to be a pretty bike friendly city.
