The first cycling cap I made!


This is my first cycling cap I made from recycled shirts. Found the pattern on flicker from user pandaface. It was easy to make and I have never sewed before!

Mobius Arch, The Alabama Hills


Here is a shot of Mobius Arch in The Alabama Hills just before sunrise.  The Alamama Hills is located a few miles from the town of Lone Pine, California.  The Alabama Hills is where most of the westerns were filmed as well as some of the space movies.  Mobius Arch is one of the draws to the area and is really nice in the winter with snow on the mountains.  I will have to come back here at a later time of the year next time.

Equipment: Canon 7D with Canon 10-22mm lens.  Post camera processing in Nik Color Effects Pro and Photoshop.


Me at Mobius arch.  It's not very big as you think it is in the photograph.  It is a real wide angle shot, at least 20mm or so.  It's always nice to know these things before you get there!

Just bought a used Salsa La Cruz a few weeks back and so far I really like the bike. My local bike shop guy tried to get me not to buy it because it was too big for me. I rode it around the block a few times and enjoyed the feel of the bike.  The stand over height is a little tall, but it works for me.  After several hundred miles on the bike now, I can say that it is a great ride.  The problem is that it is about an inch too long compared to my other bikes and causes me some some bake pain on longer rides.  Sell it or try to modify it?  I decided to put Surly Open Bars on it as well as new shifters and break levers. I will upload a picture of the finished mods when I get them done.

Back on the horse that threw me!

Well it's really the bike I was riding when I fell and broke my leg playing bike polo.  It's been 60 days since the accident and I am healing well.  It will be a month or so we fore I am back to full speed on my bike, but any speed without pain is great news!  After a tibal plateau fracture, I am glad to be back riding and almost walking.  Take care of your bones!
