Like many, I am usually the photographer.

This is a recent one from Maine. Me and my pup, Flynn, on the way up to the summit of Cadillac Mtn. Pardon our expressions; it was windy.



And one I took of Flynn, atop Cadillac Mountain. Maine is amazing.

I thought I recognized that background - I don't suppose you ran into Jim when you were there?

Maine is absolutely beautiful! This thread, by far, is the coolest for a long time! To finally see more faces behind the names!

Going along with the Acadia National park theme, this is me and my Trek at the summit of Sargent mountain, which is only accessable via carriage roads. Motorized vehicles are prohibited.

Awesome thread, awesome blasts from the past!
I live in Altoona now! Wish they still had the Tour though. I've only been here 3 years and was never able to experience it. I do own a Schwinn Paramount that supposedly won the race one year, though. Bought it from the guys wife, who also won the Tour once or twice.

It was an awesome race at the time. I remember going through tunnels at horshoe curve, climbing ridiculously steep climbs, heading up to blue knob, etc. They even closed down the one lane of I-99 to run the Time Trial. It was fun. Who did you purchase the bike? The name that comes to mind is Brooke Blackwelder. Team Bodywise...Cannondale based team. I can't remember her husband's name. She was a classy pro! really good PR person too.

Here I am during a ride up the river trail this past Friday. This is on the Old Chain of Rocks Bridge. Behind me you can see the two former intake towers at the northern edge of our great city of St Louis.

@pamaguahiker - Winter usually sticks around till about aprilish.. so not too bad. But yeah, riding through the winter definitely helps me avoid the winter blues! There are basically no cyclists where I live (especially in the winter months) so I get a lot of strange looks but I kinda like the fact that people think I've got a screw loose

I'm refering to Ken/Kathy Steel. Would have been late 70's early 80's when they raced.

The Tour de Toona started in the late 80s. I remember Kathy winning it when i started my senior year in HS. She was a very modest racer.

I miss the event. Even after i stopped competing, i would go down every year to watch at least the Crit!

I did the research awhile ago so I would be surprised if I've got it wrong. I think I was recall him winning the Altoona horseshoe curve race in mid 70's..

Here's this: sorry, no source at the moment!

There were 2nd and 3rd place women finishers in 1987-88, but there are no records that exist both in the Altoona Library or in the Offical Toona Archives. The print media of that time, didn't reveal who they might be. Sarah Costanzo and Kathy Steel were both members of the Altoona Bicycle Club, but there was no official team. Both women still ride and live in the Altoona area today.
Kathy Steel is the widow of Ken Steel, a local legendary recreational cyclist who won the first organized unsanctioned bike race in Altoona, the 1975 Horseshoe Curve Bicycle Race. He died in January 1987, working as a firefighter, when a building collapsed on him. Ken Steel was a guy who thought 150 miles was just a nice Saturday ride. When he was discharged from the Army, he cycled back home to Altoona from San Francisco rather than buy a bus ticket. When his seat broke 60 miles from home, he pedaled standing up rather than phone for a ride. Ken always chose the most mountainous route he could find riding in the Altoona area, which provides no shortage of mountainous terrain.
