Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

An uber OCP moment

Last Monday during our group ride, I noticed a photographer capturing pictures of our group as we were going out.. I was in my poseur best... Univ Of Colorado Jersey(yellow with black trim and lettering) with Santini bibs and (F70)Yellow bike and a black helemt... Guess who made the local paper page front and center ... I had a stupid expression on my face which I cant for the life of me understand... But hey... The link to the photo is not working.. I will post as soon I can get it to work...

I know the thread is lame without pics but I Couldnt resist breaking the news ...

As they always say, "This Thread Is Useless Without Pictures!"

I'll be looking forward to Wednesday. It's kind of exciting in a goofy way to have your picture in the paper, isn't it?

I think to have your picture in the paper is an OCP moment. It would have been cool if you would have had some Hincapie sunglasses on.

But he's actually riding the bike!!! It would be much more OCP if the picture was taken with him off the bike in front of Starbucks.

Hmmmm if anything I need less pallor to be a la chicken... But I have the Tan lines though....

Once I install the damn scanner, I will post the other BW pic which was on page 3...

Here's another OCP tip...
While I DO give you points for seeing there was a photographer in the area snapping your picture, I must tell you that at that point you should have instantly gone into the drops just for better look!
