Self-explanatory, although many of us have a lot of great pictures of our bikes, riding our bikes, touring on our bikes, go through and pick just one and post here.

I'll start. This one is from Boxing Day, six years ago on my first TdMIL ride with my tall friend Andy from the People's Republic of Berkeley.

I’ve ridden that stretch before. Not too far from Neptune’s Net if I recall.

Exactly, one of my favorite routes. I try to ride it every few weeks. I stopped for a picture and my friends got just far enough ahead to make a nice composition.

I have no idea what my best shot is, but am enjoying these travel shots!
To be a bit different, let me submit a truly C&V photo.
It is from the 1982 Iron Horse Classic race in Durango, Colorado. I was traveling with a buddy and some of his friends who ("whom"?) were racing as Cat 3's. The Cat 1 & 2 groups included Joc Boyer, the first USA rider to enter the Tour de France. He is seen in this photo, just above and to the left of center (gray jersey, white cap). I think there are other well known racers of the era in the shot too.



Steve in Peoria
(the camera was a Canon AT-1, with a Vivitar 70-210 lens. Film was probably Kodachrome 200 or 400)
