Sunny Sunday Ride On My Cinelli

I built up my Cinelli Super-Corsa Pista last year, it was a slow project and I had yet to take it out for a ride before the weather went south for the winter. Finally the sun decided to visit us again and I had a few hours Sunday afternoon to go play and I decided to take her out for the maiden voyage. I rode out to the Philadelphia Museum of Art to watch the tourists run up the "Rocky Steps".

Rolled through Love Park, such a beautiful view through the statue down the Benjamin Franklin Parkway with the museum in the background.

Then rolled south down Broad St. to check out a little bike swap meet happening outside of MIke's Bikes. And then visited my friend Elissa at her store, Nice Things. The mural is in her back yard, a couple of old heads painted it for her it makes for a nice backdrop.

Looking forward to getting it out a lot more this year. I have collected the bits and pieces for years, it was really nice to ride them all together on such a beautiful frame. I will take some more detailed pics later and give you the full tour and background stories about some of the parts.
