Some of my Favorite Cycling Photos
 
Turn the pedals or push the shutter? Usually it's one or the other. Sometimes, though, I can't keep from mixing the two. These ten photos, which stretch back from just a few days ago to about a year, were born from that matchup. I made all of them in various locations in California.

In the hills of Griffith Park, with a view of Los Angeles this couple didn't seem to be that interested in on the day before Valentines Day.

Nice work! Did you know those two people in the last pic? That's just a great photo, not that there's much wrong with the rest of them either. :)

Thanks for the kind words.

While I'd seen the couple earlier in the park, we met a minute before I made the photo. I asked permission to make the photo before I pressed the shutter release. I asked them to keep on doing what they'd been doing. They're both accomplished cyclists and they were good sports for letting a stranger point his camera toward them.

Nice.

Four of my favorites.

1. Summit of Looking Glass Hill (MT 49) between St. Mary and East Glacier during a century day.

2. Melrose Bench Rd. between Melrose and Twin Bridges, MT.

3. MT 41 between Twin Bridges and Butte, MT.

4. "El Diavolo" in Sampeyer, Italy at the '95 Giro, with Rominger (the overall winner) visible in the pink jacket.
