It's a thankless job but someone has to do it.

My son raced Tri's for 7 years. I know the people that run the local races. I try to volunteer to marshal whenever I can to "payback" what others did for my son.

I thank you for what you do.

BTW... 58+

Why thank you. That image of me was taken about two years ago at the turn-around point of a self-supported imperial century. Just turned 63 last month. This picture below was taken about two months ago, at the top of GMR. They close the road to motorized vehicles every Forth of July weekend and it is only open for cyclists.

Took this a couple of years ago at an English Lake District village that shares my name. It's only about 40 minutes by car from my home. My name is Braithwaite with an 'e' on the end but the final letter is missing from my user name as it is too long!

I have many photo's of my bikes but not many with me in them.

What beautiful scenery in the background there - I've spent many a happy day in the Lake District (and cold, wet ones too!). Brings back fond memories...

Several photos of me from various rides over the (fairly recent) years:
On the Grand Tour Double Century, 2010 (my friend Anny in the background.

At the start of an Angeles Crest ride with Lauretta.

Working checkpoint #6 at the Knoxville Double (rider is Teresa Beck).
I'm on the left, riding Eastern Sierra Double with David Slaton.
Having coffee and a cinnamon roll at Mt. Baldy Lodge on a cold day in the mountains.
At the 2nd checkpoint of the Hemet Double, March 2014.
On my mountain bike wearing my 50+ jersey.
With my vintage '75 fixed gear Masi in Long Beach.

Bill, what are you doing wearing an Atlanta Cycling jersey? When were you there?

If you have a pic at an online site you can get it to display in full size like this.
[img] stored image link [/img]

Remove the spaces and it should work just fine for you.

Here's a shot from my photobucket account of the bridge over the Suwannee River on the Nature Coast Trail.


And here's a pic of of me (in the red and white jersey) in 2012.
