Our 15 minutes of fame on our ride today (video)

Had a great ride on a beautiful day today. Local news video taped us. Link attached.

Remember that the camera add 50pound to you LOL!

Click the video for the bluebonnett story. If it is breaking up it clears after about 13 seconds and our "15 SECONDS of Fame!

The sight appears to have updated the story to one about wildflowers. I hope you saved the video for yourselves. It's hard enough to get good pictures of the tandem in action, it'd be really cool to have a video to look back on later.

A short segment with the tandem is shown a little over half way through the wildflower video.

Went on our Saturday morning ride in Fort Worth, TX and the wildflowers are doing great. Nice that the highway department and others avoid mowing them down. With all the rain it should be a record year. For those that want to know what we are talking about I have attached a picture taken in a prior year.

That's the correct story. It shows them riding through the wildflowers after the breaking up stops.

Looks like a beautiful ride and although spring has come early in upstate NY, our greenery is just beginning to appear. No cameras but a lot of cow, sheep, goats and llamas this AM.

I am not sure which road. It was taken by a Fort Worth Bicycling Assoc. member on a ride from Austin to Fort Worth.
