    Following in the footsteps of Mr B & the Historian

    For once, I actually brought a camera on a ride, inspired by Mr Beanz and the Historian. I've decided that a jersey with a front pocket, a really compact camera, and a long lanyard is something I'm going to have to invest in at some point... Just 2 pics here, and no riding ones. hey, the camera was riding in my seat-back bag and it was impossible to reach while pedaling! This was the year's 1st 60 degree day.

    pic 1: loading up the car for a ride to the Minuteman MUP. bikes are my Rans V-Rex recumbent, a Bacchetta Corsa recumbent, and a Rans Fusion crank-forward (semi-recumbent). All fit nicely on a Saris 3 Bones rack:


    pic 2: Any ride needs refueling. Here we stopped at Rancatore's in Lexington, MA for some super premium ice cream - rocket fuel for a bike ride! Don't worry, we took turns keeping an eye on the bikes while ordering.


    Anyway, it was a nice relaxing ride. It was hard to return to work after! The Rans crank forward bikes, incidentally, are a blast to ride. You get tremendous leverage on the pedals from the handlebars for hill climbing while the position takes all almost the weight off your hands.

    I tried taking a camera with me riding, the problem is that am a photo nerd. I end up off the bike more than one it and the exercise advantage is lost. I would like to do some touring though at some point that would allow for those long stops for the scenery and to take some photos.

    Is there a post somewhere here for photography (not necessarily bike related)? or would anyone be interested in one if i started one?

    I took over 1000 photos on a nine day tour and still lost about ten pounds. Extensive photography on a ride might lessen the cardio benefits, but I doubt it will seriously impact the calorie burning.

    See the "Post a Photo" thread.
