Bicentaur

Was on the beach trying some metal detecting this afternoon and, on the way back, saw this. I have no idea on earth what this is about. There was someone apparently filming this guy, so it will probably be on youtube somewhere.

I'm fairly sure this won't catch on with the racing sorts who hang here. The rest of us?

Have camera, will travel.

Funny you should note. I shot about 10 views and in each he looks like there is a vertically oriented roofing nail on his saddle. You'd think anyone being this obvious and offbeat would have a sense of humor and enjoy the experience. Maybe it belongs to his little sister and he lost a bet.

Fort Pickens Rd, about a mile east of the park entry. That neck of the "woods", he's probably a tourist, so you're safe.
