Kinda beachy this morning. Something about these two strand cruisers, locked together and out in the sand, intrigued me.

Thanks! Nice TdC pix too!

I tell ya. Yesterday, I had to do a lot of freeway driving on the mean (and slow) streets of LA. Flippin hot too ... even near the beach.

But I rode in today, and what a morning. Calm. Warm. And with a full moon over my shoulder. I love my commute!

EDIT: I said "Sweet" last time. I need a new short word for "Very nice photo, I enjoys the tones as well as the composition."

These pics are from the Burgundy and Provence Santana Tandem tour we did last year in July. The pictures are courtesy of Eugene Mezereny Photography.

Our group shot from the top of Mount Ventoux



On our trip to Marseille and the Mediterranean shore, we saw the horses of Camargue.

There's something artificial looking about this photo, but nothing about it is. From the Big Four bridge today:

From today's ride from Freshwater Lagoon to Prairie Creek Redwoods. I used the old Powershot A560, and I wonder if this takes the best photos of all my cameras.







I guess "Veggies" is hard to spell (since the word comes from "Vegetables")

65'er, that's such a cool bike & trailer setup. But unless you're making house calls to fix someones bike, why the Park stand?
