Yes, and on an Italian frame. It would be an insult to intimate otherwise..........

Obviously, around my house "bike" has multiple meanings.

The first, taken at NAHBS this past winter:



The second . . . . . . . . . . . . well I'm not on a bicycle all the time:



Obviously, I'm not into cycling due to some eco-weenie, love the earth motivation. The bicycles were there for six years before the first motorcycle.

Was telling my daughters that any boy who wanted to date them would have to meet me so I could show them my shovel and chainsaw... and they said... "but you don't have a chainsaw".

Yet.

The Chainsaw would be suspicious out in the middle of Alberta, might I recommend a very powerful snowblower?

In other news, after a 50k ride, I took my camera with me (...It`s a Nikon D70, make it a bit more an effort to pack with me than most)

Around 7:30,


Around 11:30:


Took the 310 out for a good photo-ride.

Yes, it is dirty. It`s my utility bike...and I`m saddened to think I may need to sell it.

Syke had a serious fashion following at NAHBS...Under that jacket, a nice sweater, and all the bored wives were looking for his booth. I heard one tell her husband, "You dress like that, you can buy that bike you want." He was a most gracious host.

since the scope of this thread has broadened to include families, here are my girls, 5 and 3, this past spring on their bikes (fortified with extra wheels-- i'm hoping the older one will eschew the training wheels by this fall):

My wife is in the back row; front row Oliver (Meg's dog Aussie mix, Murphs brother), Murphy (my dog Aussie mix) and Sadie (in-laws puppy). All three dogs were rescues, Murphy and Oliver came from North Carolina (Durham county shelter) and Sadie was a local find. The only rider in the group is Meg. The dogs have issues gripping the bars....

Wow, you all are a good looking bunch. This should be a thread killer ...

Me, my oldest daughter, my son-in-law and my wife at my daughter's wedding last September. I appear to be a cardboard cut-out with this lighting.



The oldest daughter with the younger twins ... who just turned 22 this past weekend. How did that happen?

OK, another just for fun. At the end of 13 days hiking with my son's troop at Philmont 2002 during the drought and forest fires, no showers. Shirt sleeves and underwear abandoned days before.

That's my bike, please no comments about the stem...(I'm shopping for a Nitto I promise)

A picture of me on the bike (with recently carved overtly 1990's facial hair)


Here's one that shows some of my personality and hints at what sort of beverages I enjoy:


A good one of my wife and I:


And since someone else did it, here's a pic after a seriously gnarly crash (over the handlebars which resulted in me not riding for like 3 months last summer):

Edit: It gives me great sadness to learn that in the 80's Capri-Sun advertised it's "10% Fruit Juice" as a good thing.
10% Juice, 90% High Fructose Corn Syrup.

Since we are posting family pictures, here are mine:

A couple of my wife on her classic (but not vintage) super V:





A couple of the boys with their bikes on a trail ride (there is one truly C&V bike pictured) :





I don't have pictures of my daughter on a bike, but here is:




And since we are post self-inflicted injury pictures, this is me after finishing the Cinci half mary (unhill both ways and under continuous rain) this May:
