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

Wow, are people allowed in the hotpools? Cool bar-end mirror. [Do you ever worry about it stabbing you? Just wondering.]

Stabbing me is the least of my worries. It's the mauling I take from all of the luscious, groping women that's the real problem. This thing's a chick magnet!

Here's a photo from my cockpit, trailing the wife and daughter on their tandem halfway through the "Bike Around the Buttes" century last April (northern California, up by Yuba City/Marysville).

I thought you weren't supposed to wrap those k wing bars much past the hoods. That's the first time I've seen tape that far up.

Seeee, I told you that Guinness cap would look good on a Celeste bike. The values of the color depth are a good match. Both are kind of a pastel/creamy opaque color.

I was looking through my bike pictures and realized that I don't have an over-the-handlebars shot. I have a couple of detail photos of how I mounted my blinky lights, but no "cockpit" photos.

sweaty hands made the bars to slippery so i had them wrapped further up. it doesnt hurt the bars and made it safer to ride. less bling factor though.

This is the closest thing I have, for now. I'll try to get a true dashboard pic, but this thread will probably be old and dead by the time I do.

Okay!

Here's two more - the first one is from my bike getting ready to catch a "knave" of my own on La Canada Road over on the SF Bay penninsula. Unlike our own tourtured forum member, I caught mine!

The second picture is from over my bike (stationary), getting ready to start a 4 mile descent in the Sierra Nevada at about 7000'. This was over by Gold Lake in the Sierra Buttes region, between Bassets and Graegle.
