Adventure Cycling catalog... and Me

The Adventure Cycling Travel 2010 catalog came today. They had asked if they could use a couple of my photos. Indeed they did!

My sweet wife Tricia (MyLilPony on BF) made the back cover.
My self portrait while riding is on page 23.

I be famous!!!

We went on their Cycle Washington tour last year and it was great.
Photos and write up at

We hope to do the Montana tour this year.

I thought the picture on the back page looked real familiar. I missed the other one

Yeah I saw that. Cool. You are already famous for designing the 50+ jerseys. And now this?!

I saw your mug on Page 23 and knew it was you right off. Your wife is much cuter than you.

I wouldn't have it any other way. That would just be sad....at least for me. I'm not consulting her on the issue.

Thanks for pointing this out - I hadn't looked at my copy until you pointed this out. It was great of them to give you photo credit as well.

Very nice! I love your wife's Rosie the Riveter jersey. I have a friend - a former student - named Rosie who has a collection of R.t.R. stuff. Unfortunately, she's not a cyclist. I'd look a little silly wearing one, and besides, my first choice would be my 50+ jersey!

I read the ACA brochure with great longing. My finances preclude paying for an organized tour. Darn! They all look great!

Mine came today! I'm thrilled to actually see it at last and not have to rely on reports.
Here's the back cover
