See my signature line below for photos of me where I live now, where I lived before this, as well as in several places around the world on my various tours.


Incidentally .... you might be interested in this site too: http://confluence.org/
The Degree Confluence Project
"The goal of the project is to visit each of the latitude and longitude integer degree intersections in the world, and to take pictures at each location. The pictures, and stories about the visits, will then be posted here."


But here's a few .... the first is the immediate area where I live and ride. The next two are just a short distance away.

У меня вопрос - -
Как вы едете 2 велосипеда сразу?

Фотоий:
Около где я живу - буфало.
Знак говорит - Езда на вашем риске!
То для автомобилей - Тинно

П.с. - Ваше фотоий Кавказе супер!
Но - безопасно там?
Вы думаете войны в Чечне?

I have a question - -
How do you ride two bikes at the same time?

Photo:
Near where I live - Buffalo.
The sign says - Travel at your own risk!
That's for cars - muddy

PS - Your photo of the Caucasus is super!
But is it safe there?
What do you think of the war in Chechnya?

Be aware of russian state troopers though. They may stop and fine you for exceeding the speed limit even if you travel on a fully loaded bike!!!

Concrete Park is quite the place
here is a link
Concrete Park

Truly what we call 'Primitive' art or outsider art... art that is not 'schooled' or in the classic form. This is the kind of place that you die for when you are tooling along on your bike

Do ya think this is really how it is in Russia? You know, I live here and never had trouble with exceeding speed limits. More to say, we don't even know 'bout bike speed limits!!! Never ever met such problems going by bike in my country. So if you had some, plz write 'bout them. This is really interesting for me and may be useful for others.

It was a joke, read it as: "russian bribe hungry police officers fine any moving object for exceeding the speed limit... and they fine any stationary object for parking violations... "

It is a fact that they are constantly looking for bribes. However, I admit it, I never heard that they've stopped a bicycle... Perhaps they think that bicyclists are just too poor to pay a bribe which is actually good for us cause good used touring bike costs more and keeps value way longer than used russian LADA car....

Hey, you've got one more reason to enjoy a bike than the rest of us: save on road bribes!
