Elgin, JC Higgins, J.C. Higgins, They're All Sears bikes, and all freaking awesome!!  I love that the Firestone bikes are all the same frames too... It's too bad there isn't more information out there about these bikes as they totally kick ass.  Yes, they're not quite as good quality as a Schwinn, but they're absolutely serviceable and personally I find they fit taller riders a bit better.  One really could ask why AREN'T these bikes ruling the world about now?!?

Rode last night... Ridin' again today too...

Spring is here!!!!!! Woohoooo!!!!!!!!!!

Harbour Center

Gorgeous weather last night, couldn't be better. I finally had some time to get my LED upgrade done on the Kustom Kruiser - I built up a battery pack using D-cells and put them in the tank to replace the old-school BLT battery I was using before that. Light works great, I'll share details in another post when I've got some time. Anyhow, I was just getting that buttoned up when I got a text from Don. Just as I started to read it Mad Dog called. Ok, obviously we've got interest tonight, let's make it happen...

Fired off a few text messages to rally the troops, got a nice little crew together for the evening... I swear the whole night pretty much was going from spot to spot to either meet someone, pick something up, say goodbye, whatever... Totally a good night for it though, weather was clear, warm, total good times.

Burrard Bridge



If I really think about it, I guess the route was Science World, False Creek stop, Burrard Bridge, Dover Arms, Crab Park, Roundabout, Lost Lagoon, Stanley Park trails and back home again... Not the longest ride especially after what we've been doing lately but fully good times. Anyhow the few pics I've got of the night:

Happy Birthday!


Met this couple outside of the Dover Arms - it was her birthday. They were TOTALLY in to the bikes - ended up getting one of her friends to shoot a picture of her with my red Kustom Kruiser Ultraglide. Good times, always glad to put a smile on someone's face.

Chilling at Crab Park...

Line 'em up!

Keep it Clean!


Been trying to make more of an effort to clean up after ourselves... I know the cans and bottles all get nabbed by morning most of the time but we might as well make things easier on the people picking 'em up by at least trying to get them all in one place. Likewise it makes wherever we stop nicer for anyone who comes along right behind us. I'm going to start keeping a couple old grocery bags in my tote for just such an occasion...

I don t mind coming out to hang and ride but some nites we need to minimize stops and do more riding , this way the ride could explore areas not ridden by the group before ....stop the drinking

Agreed...

For sure... It's always a little difficult when we have a bigger group together - once you've got more than about 20 people doing anything other than the basic 'stick around Stanley Park' gets to be a challenge unless everyone was expecting a big ride before hand. Friday evening rides for instance are likely always going to have frequent pit stops because that's really what the Friday ride is all about - blowing off steam after working all week.

That said, we've been doing a lot of 'different' rides over the past few months, actual real riding rather than riding 30 feet and stopping again. Those tend to be mid-week or daytime rides, usually with a smaller group. For instance yesterday we rode from Science World in to Kits as far as Macdonald and then circled up through Kits into the Crescent area (between 16th and 25th, Arbutus to Oak) eventually getting as high as 28th or so. All depends on who's riding and what their tolerance for hills and such is. We don't want to leave people behind either!
