Picture of You on a Bike

I'm sure it's been brought up before but hey I'm sure there are others, other than Beanz, who have pictures on the bike. The skinny guy is my brother in-law, drafting again he is.

Most of my pix are self-shot. First one is me during a snowy commute last winter. Next is on SR-530, about 70 miles into the Summer 400k brevet this year, final one is from STP last year (taken by Marathon Photo).

I'll have to get Funrover's secret to keeping the MTB tires so shiny!

This was Monday morning's ride. I had never been on this course and being after 100 weekend, I wasn't sure how I'd feel so we did the easy climb. After feeling pretty good on the ride, we are returning on Monday for the longer climbs!




Not as fancy as Youcoming's Madone, but I bet the paint came form the same bucket!

I'm on the left of the photo. I can't remember the lady I rode with on that ride, the 2006 Hunt for the Hills in Darlington County, SC.

I'm the captain, my son is the stoker, and my daughter is the mini-stoker. My girl does have a proper fitting helmet after that photo was taken.

My son, 10 in the pic but 11 now, is already near Clyde status.

Nice...My family is going to Beaufort in Feb. when my son graduates his Marine training. I have purchased 25 tours in SC low country...looks like great place to live. I look forward to touring your neck of the woods.

From the camera of "neilfein"....

Me on the GAP on the way to Cumberland, June 2008, and a fractured rib a couple of miles later.



I struggle to mount the bike in December 2007....



Just after a crash on that same December 2007 trip.



Delaware and Raritan Canal Towpath, June 2007. Note the stylish fish cycling socks.



Same day, heading back to my car after the ride.

Perhaps not my best angle, but when someone else is taking the pictures you don't get much choice!

Heading past Red Hill on the way to Tai Tam Reservoir and beyond to Shek O (Hong Kong).

Does that beer sign in the back ground by chance shed any light on your struggle to get on the bike?
