    Mystery Man?

    I just received my Feb. copy of Adventure Cyclist today. Flipping through the pages...what should jump out at me but a sweet photo of our very own Curtis Corlew designed 50+ jersey - right there on page 40. Yay!

    Now we need to find out who is modeling it.

    Thanks, teach. I couldn't find a link to the pic. I could scan it but the scan would include the entire page which might be against the BF rules or perhaps a copyright violation of some sort.

    you would probably all right if you make sure that you credit Adventure cycling as the source of the page.

    The triangle on his butt suggests he is a randonneur.

    Not necessarily. Adventure Cycling's "Rules of the Road" requires display of the triangle on all their supported tours. See page 5, second bullet point:

    (You must) Display the provided safety triangle on yourself or your bike so that it is visible from behind.
    and

    NOTE: Failure to follow Adventure Cycling’s “Rules of the Road” is grounds for dismissal from an Adventure Cycling tour
    Most folks put them on their panniers.

    Lucky for me, I work at a library and bike to work.

    Cycle Montana is the last week in June this year and a different route. I've signed up again. Anyone else up for it?

    Yep, that is NOT me, Curtis Corlew. I hate that damn triangle. Yes, I know it's safty and all, but I fold it up extra small and put it on my bike seat bag. It's a much more handsome lad, without a triangle issue.
    WANTED: Not a darn thing. I've got it all. Life is good.

    The most common one used by randonneurs is the RUSA-sold version, which has "Randonneurs USA" on the bottom- not sure the picture is clear enough to see it anyway.

    Curt: I'd like to see your technique for that. Is duct tape involved? I still have my triangle from last year and will give the fold a try. My worst fear is that the Triangle could slip down and jam the rear wheel. I could not agree more with the aesthetic judgment though.
