Vintage Bikes In Buffalo (via The Buffalo News)

New display at the Pierce-Arrow Museum in Buffalo

bikes in BuffaloFor nearly half a century, no one has seen the vintage bicycles and rare bike memorabilia that Jim and Mary Ann Sandoro collected.

That changes Saturday. When the museum at 263 Michigan Ave. displays the couple’s bicycle collection. Including the bikes they purchased in 2013 from the former Pedaling History Museum in Orchard Park.

“We have been collecting bicycles and bicycle memorabilia for nearly half a century,” Jim Sandoro said. “With the acquisition of the Carl and Clary Burgwardt collection, we can finally put it on display for all to see.”

The Sandoros founded and built the Buffalo Transportation/Pierce-Arrow Museum. Its focus has been on automobiles. And more recently, the Frank Lloyd Wright Filling Station.

Default Ride in the park

Tuesday Sep 18 – cycling – default ride

[activity id=1192017112]

This is my default ride. I have several options to lengthen the ride if my legs and the weather cooperate. I won’t be listing every ride on the site, but will post special rides in the future.

The lure of the open path

This is where I belong. the open road, the open bike path, the open whatever. Wanderlust keeps calling and it’s getting harder to say no.

Bike Ride: Wander to Buena Vista

While visiting the KOA I decided to take Mr. Ed on an adventure. While looking at the map for potential routes I spotted a destination that I could not resist; The Buena Vista Landfill. A garbage dump with an alleged beautiful view? I had to go.

Well the name wasn’t all that appropriate but I did see some sights and was just a few seconds too slow to get a picture of an eagle.
