Ok - here's my family shot from this past spring. I almost have my wife convinced to let me find a vintage tandem for my oldest daughter and myself - she's the one who's most enthusiastic about riding.

I guess its time for me to play.

On my way out for a ride this afternoon:




Our son wearing his newest cycling treasure: a Cervelo Test Team jersey literally off of Heinrich Haussler's back from the ToC (if you follow pro cycling you know who he is).

My little C&Vr's after an afternoon of riding their English three speeds.

Danusia (Dani) rides a 1973 Raleigh Fireball that dad and his mates restored...


Alexandra (Alex) loves her 1980 Raleigh Saffron which just got new hand built wheels, new Marathons, and new longer seat post... her legs are almost as long as mine now.

When are you swinging by ?

Girls might be off on a sleepover then but if you want to go on a ride earlier on Friday we could arrange that and mebbe the girls could come and see Willow the skitty kitty.

We all have English three speeds ya know.

I'll keep you posted. I'm taking the EBC intro maintenance course Friday evening and not sure what my day plans are yet...I'd be totally up for a ride though with you and the girls. Hubby will be snoozing if he is off as he is up in the NWT right now. I'll email you....

Haha..willow the skitty kitty...she loved all over Eliza yesterday the little furball

Unfortunately, I have no pictures of me on a bike. I don't ride recreationally that often...it's usually just to get around town, hence no camera.

Here's one of my family. From right: Me, my father, my mother, my brother, my brother's fiancee, and my girlfriend. Taken in Mykonos, Greece.


And here's one of my prettiest bike, although the wheels have moved onto someone who will use them more than I would:

Don't exactly have pics of me on any of my bikes, as others, so here goes

This was very shortly after hiking from Tioga Lake to our campsite in Tuolome Valley (sp?) in Yosemite NP,


This is from Humbolt SP, showing the kids and nieces and nephews how I wanted to see them do a belly flop into the Eel river if they expected to eat dinner on another camping trip,


By the way, they all did it after I instructed them how to do a proper belly flop.

Aftermath a couple weeks later from a bike mishap that led off with the infamous line, "Hey Boys, watch this..."

3 pins in my left hand after a shattered 5th metacarpal.

oh yea the bike,

Blasphemy in the C&V forum , sorry, I have all kinds of bikes around but I had to break down a few months ago and see what all the CF hoopla was about, and dammit, it is a damn nice ride.

Nice photos. But, umm, you describe yourself as "Senior member" and you're the guy on the right? What does that say about us antique-type people?

FYI, "Senior Member" is what the forum software sticks on everyone after so many posts, unless they create a custom user title.

That he does. He was fortunate to receive the Saxo jersey from a friend who was in Denmark on business, and as mentioned the Cervelo jersey was given to him by the Cervelo SAG staff along with a cycling cap. He was in 7th heaven for the rest of the week after that!

Thanks Jake. While some kids take to baseball or basketball, our son has really taken to cycling. He has been following the pro tour since he was 2 1/2 years old, and asked at that time if we could put his tricycle on top of our car so he could ride in the Tour de France. We're just glad he's not a couch potato and enjoys cycling and running as much as he does. We do our best to emphasize the benefits for body and mind, as well as the qualities of determination and perseverance, with the goal being that he apply these characteristics to his education and ultimately the rest of his life.

Here's a pic of him running his first 5K at age four (the now defunct "Run to the Far Side," in San Francisco):
