I love everyone’s photos. Heres one of me on Acadia’s carriage roads. They are great for Summer rides. I didn’t need the Pug’s fat tires here but its my favorite bike to ride and the only one I brought on this trip. And of course the photo is my own work… thanks to the camera self timer.
For me one of the best parts of summer are the bike camping trips (inspired by the Rivendell/Petersen S24O concept). I love loading up and setting off for a weekend destination, often exploring new places and revisiting favorite places.
This photo was taken on Whidbey Island along a dike. I was riding with the group but saw a little perch I could stop and stand on taking in the riders and the scenery. This particular trip was a 4th annual event and we had almost 50 riders meet in Seattle with their gear and ride 40 miles to South Whidbey State Park.
This is me riding around at Bayfront Park in Menlo Park. In the photo I’m riding a 2010 Breezer Thunder mountain bike, though I’ve also done these trails with a road bike and a fixed gear bike. I love your photo contests!
This is a photo of my Long Haul Trucker on a pre-dawn ride. The place is an open space preserve above the Silicon Valley. Normally I come here for short mountain bike rides, but this morning I decided to ride the trucker up to the lookout to have breakfast and watch the sunrise. It always amazes me how versatile the LHT can be. I pretend to be touring out on the silk road, at least for the 30 minutes I am out in the dirt, then I go back to the reality of TPS reports and metropolis.
The photo was taken just North of Trinidad, California. We were riding through a dense gauntlet of of trees when down the road there was a heavenly shaft of light pouring through. I waved Laura through and took the photo just as she passed under the light.
