Anyone familiar with The Rules of cycling knows that the proper number of bikes to have is “N+1” where N is the number you currently have. My first real 700C road bike was a used 12-speed Peugeot I got back in the early 90’s. When I think of old-school…

I am super stoked! Got everything ordered except the little bits and pieces. Still need shifters, but everything else is pretty much a done deal. I'll post up pics once I start the actual build.

For the life of me, I couldn't remember where I'd seen this... and foolishly, I forgot that Sheldon Brown knows everything. I've got a kid's 507 MTB with one of these cheap loose-bearing BB's, and this is the tool I was trying to find to do it with (without requiring a $200 Hozan one). Made from off-the-shelf bolt/nut/washer hardware.

Gear time! A 7-speed Sunrace cassette (12-32) for the Surly LHT, the "6-speed" cassette I made to fit the narrowed Tiagra hub (11-25), and a vintage Atom 77 freewheel (13-21) for the '82 Peugeot.

There’s something crazy about successful people. They normally don’t succeed at something, and then sit back and say “well, that’s done, I guess I can just sit back and chill for the rest of my life.” I mean, there’s a few people that have done that… but…

Looks like I will need to have some sort of plan like this, since my commute is hit-or-miss.

I haven’t really talked about it much this time around, but last week (July 12) was the 5-year mark since I was hit by a car and hospitalized while bike commuting. It’s been an interesting 5 years, I have to say. The first year was strictly physical and…

So, having fun mapping possible routes for a 3-4 day bike tour. Would love to get +Ben Folsom's (or any other Bike Hobos) opinions. Here's the basic rundown:

Day 1: Leave from the BCC Southern Compound and head down Bayou Lafourche to Raceland. Pass through sugar farmland, including an active sugar mill (possibly with a tour). Take 90 north to the Mississippi River, passing through fishing towns and swampland. Day ends camping at Bayou Segnette State Park, on the outskirts of New Orleans, for a total of 54.8 miles.

Day 2: Head back to the MS River trail and go Northwest, passing under the Hale-Boggs Bridge on a dedicated bike path. Halfway through the day, stop and sightsee at Oak Alley Plantation (the most famous plantation home in the south) and continue on to Donaldsonville, or the nearest place we can find to camp. 69.2 miles, for a total of 124 miles.

Day 3: Strike out on Highway 70 through Pierre Part, and follow the Belle River through the swamp all the way to Brownell Memorial Park (on Lake Palourde) in Morgan City, home of the largest Seafood festival in the state. 35.6 miles, for a total of 159.6 miles.

Day 4: Leave Morgan City and take Highway 20 through the swamp (paved bike lane the whole way) past alligators, shipyards, and miles and miles of Cypress trees. End up back at the BCC Southern Compound for 29.8 miles, for a grand total of 189.4 miles.

Now that I'm looking at it, I'm thinking doing it in reverse order might make more sense... start off with shorter days to shake down bike issues? Could also call it quits at Bayou Segnette in N.O. if you had to... just thinking out loud.

The Shrimp and Petroleum Festival in Morgan City is a 4-day event with live music and amazing food. If we time this right and do the route backwards, could leave on Thursday afternoon, hit the festival on Thursday night and still have time to ride to Donaldsonville with time to spare on Friday.

Hmm....

Morgan City and New Orleans campgrounds are solid, they're known entities. Not sure about the middle night yet.
