BLU resting in the shade during a Bikerowave ride from San Luis Obispo to Santa Barbara.


Loaded with groceries and a 15lb bag of rice to boot. Took a new, hella hilly ride home accidentally that day.


Action shot of Lou on top of Vista Point (Skyline), while waiting for the rest of the group.


Last weekend on my ride down to San Jose from a wedding in Berkely I caught a thorn.


Waiting for LA MetroRail in El Segundo, to go up by Amtrak Surfliner to San Luis Obispo and attempt a double centry ride back to LA.


BLU resting at the back of the house. He needs a headset replacement after the last century. Made it half way to Santa Barbara.

On business travel right now, so my bike is 2000 miles away. This old pic of the Varsity will have to do.

most people have cameras on their phones, which explains why most of my pics are not of great quality...

Hey nice! I don't know what my malfunction is but I like the new look even more than the way the bike looked in older pics. How are you liking that saddle?

Cobrabyte,
Cool photos, I like that Bronco!
You work at a very nice place. I got to catch Chihuly's The Nature of Glass when it came to Phoenix's Desert Botanical Garden. Amazing stuff! There is something alluring about flowing colored glass.

Thanks. I like the saddle a lot actually, I bought it on a whim because it was in a take off bin for $15. It's super comfortable though, so it's staying even though it's technically a cross country mountain bike saddle I think, lol.

Abarth, I can't believe he stayed still for 30 miles. You two must have been cruising! The wee boy and I did 4 miles today, and he was fussy and hot and had to pee three-quarters of a mile in.
