Haha, too much. Hybrid riders are freaks. 65, you don't fit in here looking all normal with your touring
bike and hot wife.

Here's me with some of my buds. I'm on the left.

Teleboarding, a hybrid sport combining elements of Telemark skiing and snowboarding.

More recent, looking very hybrid rider.

I shaved off the beard but it's growing back.

Anyway, here's me. Don't have a pic of me with the bike, so a pic of me with the dog will have to do.

Here is me a few years ago in the middle of my first metric century on my Giant Sedona DX.

The bike has since been modified by swapping to a rigid fork.



The bike really is my size, I just look really big riding on it.

I was down to visit my mom a few weeks ago... she still can't get over the fact I don't drive and will ride to see her.

It's about 90 km one way and I have taken my Trek down there when it was running flat bars but the ergo drops are far better for these kinds of distances, especially when you have to run into a headwind for that full 90 km as I did last week.

My mountain bike is actually closer to being a textbook example of a hybrid than my hybrid...

I'll bite even if this isn't the most glamorous shot. It's my ONLY bike pic so far since really I'm still very newbie. I need to do some nice bike shots and more shots of me and my skinny side.


Oh what the hell, it's a couple years old but here's me with my husband when he had the bigger beard, he won't shave it all but he fits in well here I'd say Oh, and he too rides a hybrid now. GT Fitness Series Nomad LTD . He loves that bike.

I have Dobermans, 2 of them actually. 1 is a Blue and the other one is a Fawn, most people are familiar with the Black Dobermans and the Reds. There is also a White Doberman but is not recognized by the AKC

I just sold all my Horses last month, I had painted Quarter horses. I wish I had more time for them

I stopped worrying about my picture on the net years ago, I couldn't even begin to imaging how many pictures I have out there. My wife avoids pictures at all cost and I have no idea why. Just her thing I guess & I have learned not to push it

Hybrid riders are weird? I think the hipsters around this neighborhood ride fixies and maybe some hybrids, and trust me, HIPSTERS are weird.

I have a confession. Every time I open this thread I'm a little weirded out. That pic of Timber is so disturbing to me. And after the comment of, "It puts the lotion on the skin"; even more so.

Plus, shouldn't the appropriate hybrid bike quote be "Put the fu#@$n lotion in the basket" be more appropo since so many of have baskets
