Hey, that bike on the right is nearly the same color as mine. Must be a popular color.

Nice wheel set, too.

Cool!

There's a guy who lives near the top of Cantelow who sometimes rides the last few hundred yards to the top with us on one of those. He makes it seem effortless, carries on a conversation while we concentrate on just getting up the hill, answering in short, sometimes gasping replies. He doesn't even wear a helmet.

Let us know how easy it is to learn to ride one of these, 'k? Oh, and remember the pictures!

He's probably been on all the late night talk shows already. That is just nuts! I'd like to see how he does going down Mt. Tam!

How do I get Red Rider to start unicycling? She looks to much like she is pulling away and disappearing into the distance on that Orbea when I rode with her. Maybe it's because I'm slooooow and she isn't.

I enjoyed the ride and the company. Thanks, Scotty!
