Sunday ride with photo's

I always enjoy looking at ride photo's when posted, so today I took the camera to do the same. These shots are along the river near downton Wichita.

Shot of downtown from the bike path.



Rest Stop



Trivia quesion, what forum member owned these shoes before I did? Hint--His name starts with "Hist" and ends with "or-ean"



Here is a shot just like Mr. Beanz does!

Ah yes, I remember those shoes. I bought them as a birthday gift for myself, thinking I'd be able to ride clipless. I'm glad to see you are getting use out of them. And of course I'm happy to see your photos here.

Nice photos. Looks like an interesting area to do some riding. I love the trails along the rivers. I live pretty close to Pittsburgh, and we have trails similar to that. One of these days I'll have to take my camera along, and show them to you folks.

Thanks 4 sharing,

Denny

Thanks. I did show some of the better sections though. Other places are in poor repair that really jar your teeth.

Neat pics. Looks like a nice place to ride. That self-portrait thing while you're riding takes a lot of guts.

Taking pictures while riding isn't dangerous. You're on a bike and have a better view of the road than in a car, plus lower speeds. And the supposed danger is even less when you're looking at the road while taking the picture, like so...

It's no more difficult than drinking a bottle of water, or eating something, regular things while on a bike.
I'm quite proud of that picture for not showing my arm holding my phone.

I've taking pictures while riding, no big deal as I pick and choose when I do. Lonely car void road, no problem, quiet country lane no problem, riding double pace line at 45-50km/h problem!
