Top one, Team Cadet was my first decent bike. My cousin borrowed it to do a charity ride, I've seen neither since. That was about 1992.
Knackered, post rainy Sunday morning ride.
Cheap and cheerful, base model, steel framed Bianchi Campione. Does everything it says on the label.
Meyersville Cafe, Great Swamp New Jersey. Post ride burritos a specialty.
You need one of these. If nothing else, it will keep your loved ones happy while you're out on the bike.
