Pictures of your road bike with... oddball things.

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

She's pretty small, but she has a huge heart. I don't know if she beat that horse and I don't know if he's a team member or if he just bought the kit.

Venisin for the winter!

He gave me some deer jerky. Hmmm?
